or a flag or two of the many nations that make up Africa.
                
If you're feeling really energetic, perhaps you will achieve a whole blanket's worth of squares.  :))
   
and remember, it's not too late to include toys for the children
  
And if you're still not sure where to begin, these tunes will get those needles, hooks and looms working, I'm sure.....
 
Please sit with me under Chris's umbrella as we make some LOVE-LY squares to CELEBRATE AFRICA!
Lots of squares, blankets, hand warmers, hats and toys.
Our love and care in every stitch.
Volume...... so there are always enough items for every needy child.
Every child receiving our knitted and crocheted items will know that they are valued and loved.

Adorable giraffe, Susanne!!  xo

I admire your challenging squares Susanne. They are so distinctive I see them in the photos of blankets distributed. 

A fantastic intro Bev. It makes me want to rush out and find lots of African animal toys and crochet patterns.

A lion up and running already  He looks great !

Oh Sue (L) he is AMAZING!!! Did you knit the fun fur in, or add it after? Your detail is fabulous....right down to the furry end of his tail...he just makes me smile.  :))

I tried sewing  fun fur for a duplicate stitch heart, a couple of years back...ugh!!.....did about two rows and by then it was a nightmare and pulled it out..

I knitted it in as I went Bev.  He is rom a book I have....Tapestry Crotchet by Renate Kirkpatrick....it is an Australian publication.  I just followed the crotchet graph and knitted instead.

Now that is clever!!!

Now this guy is cute, Susanne :)))  Love his furry-tipped tail ... xo

Awesome lion!!! Thanks Susanne.

Terrific square, love your creativity Susanne. 

Fantastic Susanne! A little person is going to finger brush this one all the time.
