The Square Project

Thanks to the people who have offered to knit some six by six inch soft yarn squares. There were a few questions: YES they can be crocheted; NO colour does not matter; YES the yarn does need to be soft since it is first put on the parent's body and then placed in the incubator on the baby's body in order to help as part of "bonding" . 

I try to go to the Thrift Shop and get all the yarn I can find, so often have some on hand to give out at Soup's On. If you have yarn to share, it would be appreciated and passed on.

This project is part of a BC Girl Guide Trefoil Guild program.(The Trefoil Guilds are made up of older, wiser amazing former Girl Guides/Girl Scouts Leaders, Members and Volunteers!) We will be attending an annual Guild meeting on the Mainland and need the finished squares by April 24th.

Islands Trust Makes Reconciliation Declaration

News Release can be accessed through the Islands Trust website at: http://www.islandstrust.bc.ca/media/347380/2019-08-it-islands-trust-council-fn-declaration_final.pdf


Thetisblog is Changing...

The first step in its change is its address.

Effective April 1, 2019, www.thetisblog.net will no longer take you to the site. 

Its new address is www.thetisposts.ca, which you can start using right away and get used to, while having your device learn it. 

In April, thetisposts will take over from thetisblog with a new interface, with most of the content being moved over. It is being designed with our community and its usage in mind.

It will be exciting to share it with you all, but much work needs to be done in the meantime.

Or you can also park on Blue Heron Road, or at the start of the Lawrence Valley Loop and walk down to the Dingly Dell junction (across the valley).
