                                           Christmas already !

Yes, KASFolk, it is time to think about Christmas.

There is a popular song in North America called:

All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth.

For a child in South Africa, perhaps we could change the lyrics to:

All I want for Christmas is a blanket and a hat. 

Let’s see how many blankets we can have ready for Christmas.  The volunteers in South Africa will sew the squares together but it would be fun to know how many cyber blankets we could make in a month.

Plain Janes in greens, reds;  Sparkly squares;  Shiny squares and, of course,  squares decorated with trees,  snowpeople,  stars,  candles,  hearts (to mention a few ideas) will make the blankets very festive.

 


We will be keeping children like this sweet angel, warm and cozy.                                   

  “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”

                                   - Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol

Dana has given us a great start with a dozen beautiful squares.

The latest donation of squares had a few squares which when upsized, make a perfect addition to the Christmas challenge.  The centres are fluffy mohair (?) and I added the green.

A cheerful christmas star

Not sure if this is easy to see but it is supposed to be a santa hat with the words Ho Ho

Now this one really is a simple attempt. The idea was a simple tree with baubles. probably need to have a rethink and have another try :)

Grace has made these wonderful Christmas squares.

October Challenge - Christmas

Photographed this on a red blanket (trying to make it look festive...lol)...but the camera didn't like it and so it wouldn't show the bell!!! Am having loads of fun with this challenge already...lol.

Not really thrilled with the way this yarn has turned out - but as you can see I have more to go.  I'm sure they will look good with other greens and reds.

3 donated squares.  Just needed a green edge to make them the right size.
