This tree really does bring back so many memories and it's beautiful in Spring with the delicate white blossoms. After blossoming it has tiny berry-like fruits. Apparently they are edible, but I've never tried them.

What a beautiful shrub Valerie !  That is a lovely reason to buy the Amelanchier :-)  Our snow is almost gone....we are shovelling snow onto the driveway so it will melt faster.  But the snow is gone from the garden near the house. The  crocus in that garden have appreciated the lack of snow and are starting to bloom.

Just to give you hope...Spring really is on its way. This is our little bit of Quebec in our corner of France. It's our Amelanchier. I have no idea if it has an English name, because I've never found one. When I was doing the courses for my Masters in Montreal I had to study the Quebec writer Jacques Ferron and his novel L'Amelanchier, so when I found that my local nursery had one I had to buy it.

Here is a message for any French-speaking Canadians. If you have francophone friends, please let them know that ther is now a facebook page dedicated to informing French speakers rapidly and easily.

Pour les francophones qui veulent avoir accès rapidement à les renseignements sur KAS, j'ai crée une page Facebook dédié uniquement à Knit-a-Square:


Pour le moment il n'y a pas toute l'info, mais petit à petit j'ajoute  ce qui est important.

The first "Terrific Tenners" team was built and finished within ten hours! A whole day paid for.

Jeanne Haessler has taken up the torch and is building a second team.

Let's support Jeanne and build her team - it only take four people who are willing to donate $10USD to Pay the Rent for another day

To see how this is working, please visit  http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/pay-the-office-rent-for...


If you would prefer to purchase a whole day to celebrate a special occasion, see Linda's suggestion below

        LET'S GO, CANADA!

Something to celebrate ?  

Please join the conversation to help Pay the Rent in South Africa.  Once you have made your donation, mention  your special day in the discussion and Pam, Anne or I will 'book' the day on the calendar.

With the Canadian exchange, you might find 47 USD a bit steep. 

Instead, Anne P. has started a "Terrific Tenners" team for those who would like to donate .  She is looking for team members who will donate $10USD.  Once 5 members have joined, there is another day's rent covered !  Or a group of 10 could donate  $5USD !

Welcome Brenda!! We're always happy to have another Canadian recruit to add the KAS family!!  You will find that everyone here is ready and willing to answer any questions you have.  Valerie is right, making squares is addictive and once you see some of your own squares in a blanket wrapped around a child in SA you will be hooked for sure! 

Comment by Valerie Zalewski on March 10, 2015 at 7:49am

Be careful, Brenda. It's totally addictive!

Comment by Brenda Dodridge on March 10, 2015 at 5:58am

Thanks Gloria and Barbara!  I'm just about finished my first square!  Love this idea of blessing others with my hobby!
