Square Circle Forum

 Welcome to the February 2018 Theme 

This month we celebrate the geographical beauty
of this amazing continent.......

the bounty of its amazing wildlife.......
its culture.......
and 'Father of the Nation' (South Africa)......
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (Madiba)
Here are some beautiful squares from our members, to provide you with a little inspiration........
December 2016 theme - African flower squares   Mini Christmas Challenge Lion Feb 2016 Africa theme

February 2016 - Celebrate Africa - 2 Elephants February 2016 - Celebrate Africa  
July 2014 Remembering Madiba 1 
Squares inspired by African animal  or fabric colours/designs

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.

Oh, Bev, poor you -an hour in the dentist's chair is one of my worst nightmares, and when you're feeling below par, too ...  Hope it's all over and you're feeling better.

Thanks Lesley...I am just a big sook when it comes to going to the dentist....must have had a bad childhood experience that I've forgotten...lol.

Take a break and feel better soon, Bev.  We'll all be here whenever you can join us.  xo

No apologies necessary Bev! Hope you'll take time to breathe and heal. 

Hats off to you Bev, for being able to do duplicate stitching!!!! 

Well, since I don't do either intarsia or duplicate stitch, I stand in awe of both of you. Susanne and Bev.  Love your giraffe, Susanne.

Bev, just relax and get feeling better and we'll all wait with baited breath for you to post all 11 squares in one "Swell foop" (Just kidding...) 

I can't even buy any decent appliques in my little town, but somewhere lurking in my stash there's a bag of washable felt... now if only I could get creative..

I cheated, Anne....I bought online....next time, I really must pull out a ruler and 'see' how big the measurements really are......some appliques are quite tiny....lol.

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 !
