 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.

Patricia, these are lovely! (I tried an elephant applique like this and couldn't get it right, so I'm even more impressed!)

Patricia, your elephants are so sweet!!  I'm sure Lesley's elephant will be glad of the company :)) I love the grass, sky, and sun in the bottom square ... I especially love the sky.  Ours has been very grey for the past few days so it's lovely to see a blue one ... :))) xo

I wasn't sure it was a very African landscape but I thought at least it looks nice and cheerful.

Patricia, you're right ... it is very nice and cheerful :)  A child will love it, it will add beauty and warmth to a blanket, and I think that's more important than "looking like" an African landscape.  It certainly brightened my day :)))  xo

Delicious !! Thanks Patricia

Definitely an African landscape, Patricia.....just googled it....lol......and in colours the children will enjoy. LOVE your cute little elephants.  :)) I am sure they will be pleased to meet Lesley's little fella.

Even my finger wants to run around these elephants. Love them. Great sun, sky and grass!!!

Blanket in SA Flag colours

A stunning blanket xx

OOOH, Diane, this is amazing!  Great way to use the colors of the S.A. flag.  Well done! xo

A magnificent blanket. Well done, Diane!! 

Yes, what a clever way to get an equal distribution of all the colours. I love it.
