I am delighted to host another KAS monthly and there is something for everyone in this month's topic, Whatever your level of skill, let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys,
Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of the seasons. Be inspired by the colours of nature, by activities, events, and by food. Below are some wonderful examples that KAS members have already contributed this year.
Green, yellow, white, purple.
Snowdrops, crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths, aubrietia, irises.
Easter eggs, Easter bonnets, chickens, bunnies and lambs, rainbows.
Cottage garden flowers – roses, delphiniums, nasturtiums, cornflowers, sweet peas. poppies in a cornfield – and lots, lots more.
Sun, sea, sand, beach balls, swimming, cricket bats, tennis racquets
Salads, ice-cream, lollies, barbecues.
Gold, russet, bronze, copper, orange, green.
Berries, leaves, pumpkins, apples, Halloween, Bonfire Night
Football, rugby, hockey
Blue & white ice colours, log fires. Christmas colours & motifs, winter sports.
I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.

Susan, I can't take the credit for making the leaves, I bought a packet of them earlier this year in a shop called The Works, which maybe familiar to you, they tend to sell budget craft items. I always browse to see if anything could be suitable as embellishments for a blanket, but there rarely is, so I was delighted to find these soft fabric leaves! I can't remember if I paid £1.50 or £1.99 for a bag that contains enough for several blanket, so they are likely to appear in future themes.
Thank you for your kind comments and for hosting a lovely theme :))
I was also trying to zoom in on the leaves, Christine! A brilliant find and a beautiful blanket.
What a great find...and what a GORGEOUS blanket, Chris!! I love your arrangement of the leaves....someone is going to feel sooooo lucky to receive this blanket. :))
Patricia, I love your Autumn and Winter squares, they are all delightful, but I especially like your squirrel :))
I do so enjoy looking at how creative everyone has been, and how we all interpret the themes each month.
There have been some simply gorgeous squares and blankets for this theme!
How I agree, Rebecca!
Absolutely FAB, Patricia!! Your cute squirrel and snowman, especially so. :))
You're obviously stealing our sunshine.....the supposed warm Spring days have been very few and far between. :))
LOVING your 'flower' squares, Amy, especially the pansies. :))
FANTASTIC Mr. Fox is certainly going to get noticed in one lucky littlie's blanket...wow!
