Our first recipient of the Square Heart Award in 2014 is
from York, England
Heather has been a devoted member of Knit-a-Square since 2012. Her needlework is beautiful and abundant! She is committed to making a blanket's worth of squares each month. This was her gorgeous contribution for the September Education Challenge.
This gorgeous version was made in the colours of the South African Flag.
If my calculations are up-to-date, Heather has made 32 Winter Warmers and 20 cuddles in the last two years! This does not include all her other garments, squares and toys. Her output is astonishing!
Knitting and crocheting for the children is more than enough, but Heather is also a lovely and supportive contributor here on the KAS Forum. Heather and her husband are the parents of three beautiful daughters. They run the York City Gospel Choir and have just welcomed a brand new member to their family, their precious granddaughter, Eowyn.
Heather's creative skills don't stop at fiber arts, she is a computer wiz too. She made this collage last year of her contributions for the year 2012.
This is what Heather wrote to accompany her photo:
In January 2012, I found the KAS website and began my KAS journey, producing 3 tiny 'Zanny' sweaters and 6 squares. However, this was so very addictive and I was staggered to realise just how much I have turned out this year! I have also learned to crochet and have 'met' many wonderful people through the forum who have given me endless support and encouragement. Thank you to all the KAS team - you are brilliant!
On the contrary Heather, it is you who are brilliant! Your dedication to the children of South Africa and the beauty of your work are an inspiration to us all!
Please accept this award
with our deepest thanks!
I invite you all to visit Heather's photo page to see all her beautiful creations.
