 Welcome to the February 2018 Theme 

 CELEBRATE AFRICA
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)......

Here are some beautiful squares from our members, to provide you with a little inspiration........

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.

A cutie . I would like to go shopping with you next time. Great find. Thanks Christine.

Awww, Chris, he's gonna be easy to love :)  What a treat for a little 'un ... xo

Cuddles galore for this cute little chap, Chris...I LOVE his eyes.  :))

I am so excited for this month's challenge - and simply could not believe that when I looked at the challenges in Nerdopolis on Ravelry (a knitting game/challenge I take part in each month over there) one of the challenges allows me to make things inspired by Africa as well!!!!

I hope to be able to kill two birds with one stone this month :)

I can't wait to see what you will make, Rebecca.  :))

Managed to get some time to work on squares today as I was a passenger in a car for several hours.  I have one square done and another 1/3 done.  I have discovered that before I can do any more, I will need to purchase some colours I appear to have used up from my stash!

Had to laugh at this, Rebecca - doesn't it always happen that when we try to use up our stash, we end up having to add to it instead!

South African flag colours

A famtastic first square of the month theme. Thanks, Anne.

Beauty, Anne.  I love your chain stitch squares :) xo

Great square Anne, the colours are bold and will stand out in a blanket.....I've tried and failed to crochet a chain stitch square!  

Bev, your intro is fabulous!  So much beauty to inspire creativity.  And you just know I LOVE the music :)))  Thank you for leading us in a celebration of Africa this month! xo
