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.

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.

LOVING the design of your blanket, Diane......and sewn together soooooooo neatly. Do you machine sew or hand sew it together?

Hi Bev, 

Glad you like the blanket.  The blanket is hand sewn together, it all looks quite neat on top but underneath is a different story:((

My maternal grandmother would be very upset to see my handiwork (she was a seamstress).  Needlework was my worst subject at school, and when I had to make half a pair of shorts for my GCE exam my heart hit the floor!!!


I hear you, Diane. I did Home Economics (cooking and sewing) in high school, because I thought that's what I should be doing. I should have done woodwork, like a lot of my friends were doing.....I might have been better at that. I had a lot of unfinished sewing items and I think I used to get a 'C' for my efforts.....I was sooooo slow and couldn't sew in a straight line (still can't) to save myself!!!

My sister became a Home Ec teacher....she is a brilliant cook and seamstress. Ros made her wedding dress and some of her bridesmaids dresses, my wedding dress and some of my bridesmaids dresses. I was obviously standing at the back of a long line when those skills were being given out....rofl.
