Square Circle Forum

In February we like to think of ways to show our loved ones that we care.

The most common way to show our affection is with a hug

And a heart

 

Our children in South Africa deserve a big hug and a wonderful way to give one is by making a square. 

Each child receives 35 hugs when a blanket is wrapped around their shoulders.

 

This month we will be sending our blanket hugs with extra love.

We will be adding hearts!

Here are patterns that you might like to try !

Or perhaps you will create your own heart square.

Not into hearts?

 Why not make one of your beautiful Plain Jane squares in the traditional February colours of pink, red and white.

 

 We may not be there to give each child a personal hug

But we can send the next best thing...a blanket hug.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Laurie Fortier is unable to host this challenge.  I am delighted to be hosting in her place.  

While checking the charity shop I found these cute little fellows....just right for the February challenge.  They even come with their own hearts :-)  

Such cute little bears! A pretty Orchid as well :).

Thanks, I couldn't resist the toys  :-)  The orchid has been flowering for a while.  I love having flowers in the winter when there is 2 feet of snow outside !

Linda, these little guys are adorable.  Cute smiles and big hearts ... "friends" for some little ones. xo

You are awesome to be taking over for Laurie this month and I know how much it will mean to her for you to do it!  I adore the little snuggles you found, they are so sweet and will be loved I'm sure!

CUTE!!

Linda, What a BIG heart you have!    This will be a wonderful challenge, and we hope to keep you busy will lots of warm-hearted squares.   Here are some of my stash-busting and heart squares to start you off .

Just like people, hearts come in all shapes and sizes, colors and textures.  Some are knit and some are crochet.

(As usual, colors are actually prettier than they appear.)

(something strange happened with this post .... it is supposed to appear after Linda's welcome.)

Sharon, it is appearing after Linda's post.  :))....well on my laptop anyway.  :)) 

I sooo love your cross stitch heart, above....I want to hang it on my wall...or have it as a doily on my dresser...how sweet!!

The other two hearts above are super, too!!!! All your squares are beautiful...you must have been sooo busy creating all these lovelies.  :)).....yes the multi-directional square is STILL on my to-do list...lol.

I don't believe it...it is now raining outside!!!!!! Was rather chilly this morning, earlier.

Thanks for putting your hand up for this challenge, Linda. You are a real trooper!!

I have one heart square to share, but the pattern isn't showing up too well, so really need to photograph it outside....will have to wait til the rain stops...lol.

Thank you so much for your very kind words, Bev.

I followed your advice and bought some thicker yarn when I saw it at the store, and it knitted up so quickly, and made a nice, thick square.   I used it for the multi-directional square and it only took 38 stitches for the diagonal, which made it a very fast knit, even for me who knits quite slowly. 

Lovely squares to start off the challenge Sharon.  Thank you !   Yes this will be a fun challenge. Each heart square will be unique !

I'm looking forward to lots of squares in my favourite colour....pink [purple is a close second]

All beautiful, Sharon, but your cross-stitch gets the crown.  Wonderful colors and fabulous work ... as always xo
