JINGLE BELLS

Squares are made and  sent to KAS from all over the world. When they arrive, they must be sorted, packed into bundles of 35. Then they are given to the Gogo groups and KAS volunteers to be made into beautiful blankets. They are returned to the KAS workshop and finally travel in the KASmobile to be distributed to the children who need them.

This is why we are jingling our bells early in the year. We want our Christmas blankets to be ready in plenty of time for Christmas


Give free rein to your creative talents. You can make PJ’s, striped or appliqued squares.


Hang the decorations

Trim the tree!Father Christmas and his elves,

Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer,

polar bears

and penguins, they can all come to the Christmas party. There’s room for everyone.

Make this Christmas the best yet for KAS’s 10th anniversary.

AND of course all toys are welcome to share the fun.

The PoM this month is the Alphabet crochet square.

Oh goodness. Thank you Valerie. This is such a beautifully designed piece. Even the blanket on the camel is squares of color. I really appreciate the brown faces.

Jude, your work is absolutely stunning!  Bright squares, gorgeous embelishments, beautiful sentiment, and love in each stitch.  We ... and the children ... are so fortunate to have you on our team :)))  xo

I can only echo Gloria's words.  

Jude, I love these squares. As many of you may have guessed C2C is my favourite stitch and here it's enhanced with the addition of reindeer and doves. They are going to look stunning in the blankets. I'm going to try to make lots more PJ's so that there will be enough background squares to encompass the decorated squares.

Remember everyone, PJ's are needed to give the decorated squares a good setting.

April 2018 Theme - Christmas in April

Two Christmas trees. One felt applique with silver decorations, one satin with gold decorations.

Bev, these are sooooo pretty!  So festive, so bright, and so beautifully made :))) xo

So beautiful, Bev. Very cheerful.

Wonderful squares with soft, satin appliques.   Bev, the children will love these.   I can almost feel the satin myself.

Some Plain Janes in sparkly red yarn, and one small entrelac square.   The too-short visit I was privileged to have with Amy last year allowed her to teach me the crochet entrelac technique.  Thanks, Amy!

Three beaut squares, Sharon......sparkly yarn is rarely found over here...at least not by me....lol.

LOVE your entrelac square....it's so effective in red and white.

I love to read of KAS get togethers and/or sharing of knowledge/skills. It gives a warm fuzzy feeling and a real sense of 'community'.  :))

These are lovely, Sharon. The entrelac is stunning. It gives it a waffle effect..
