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.

Instructions and graphs can  be found in the KAS pattern book. 

Here is an "N" for NOEL to start you off.

Hi Bev and KASers,

Yes, I will put more information about Stephen on the packing slip and alert them that the toy chair has pipecleaners in it.  

The pipe cleaners are inside the wheels, the chair arms and the computer stand. I folded the sharp ends  so they shouldn't poke thru the crochet. ??? Maybe next time I'll wrap and tie sewing thread around the ends. 

WOW!   I can't believe the intricate details on everything.   Absolutely AMAZING.

What article is that, please?  My sister's partner has MND and he has just been given an electronic voice.........

Here is a toy I made that has nothing at all to do with Christmas......... but it says all toys are welcome, so.......

Rebecca, what would Christmas be without a toy for a child...especially this adorable owl !

Oh my goodness, what a cutie, Rebecca!! She is so sweet......LOVING her embroidered flowers.  The colours you have used are so appealing and cheery.  :))

You're quite right...ALL toys are welcome. They do not have to be Christmassy.  I love this owl.

A darling, lovable, huggable toy.   What more could a child want ... oh, yeah, soft, too.

She is just so cute. I love the play of colors with the orange appearing inside the flowers. 

A couple of PJ squares...... although purple is not a traditional colour at Christmas, I like to see purple decorations on a Christmas tree :))

And the purple one in the Quality Street box! Lovely squares, Christine.

Lovely rich colour.
