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.

A Wattled Crane. Listed as 'vulnerable' by the African Wildlife Foundation, with only an estimated 7700 left in the wild. It is one of the most endangered birds in Africa.

Oh I say - this is really lovely!

That is beautiful!

Wow Bev! What a stunner, this is such a beautifully crafted square :))

A fabulous square, Bev. So detailed, so beautifully done.  Thanks, Bev!! You're a star.

Ooooh Bev, your crane is fabulous!!  I love how you create these beautiful pictures with your duplicate stitching.  The children will love them, too ... xo

Bev, your " knitted pictures" should be framed and put on the wall  All of them are so beautiful !

What a teaching opportunity is this! The new owner will be asking what's that eventually and the answer will go out from one child to another. Great Bev. 

Hand-warmers embellished to Celebrate Africa.  Take a bear pattern, add mane, viola** LION.
