Thank you KASfriends for your support of and participation in the July theme!!


Time to search your stash for REDS and GREENS and also


Even though it is summer in the northern hemisphere and Christmas will be in the summer in the southern hemisphere, it is time to think about wreaths and trees and Santa and elves and reindeer and Christmas balls and traditional celebrations. 

Did you know about Santa Mandela?

After 27 years in prison, Nelson Mandela was freed. The same Christmas that the folks up by the North Pole declared him International Santa Claus of the Year, he began an annual ritual of personally distributing presents to children in his home village of Qunu. The number of kids grew every year, to 2,000 or more, likely a record for a Santa Claus of any persuasion. -

On July 18th we celebrate Nelson Mandela's birthday by giving 67 minutes of time to a good cause.  I wonder what KAS folk are going to do?

Perhaps we can start a "Christmas in July Sit and Knit" in our home towns and cities across the globe! Proceeds in squares and donations will benefit KAS, of course.

Here are some squares from around the web to spark your creativity...

  • Thank you, Sue and Debbie, for this fantabulous theme!  And what a terrific lineup of color and fun our crafters have produced for the children!  Thank you everyone for your incredible contributions.  

    I will post these now (a bit late ... sorry).  These are just some of the squares made from the yarn that Linda gave me when I met her on our way home from the west coast.  RJSK hands are still busy :) xo

    Sorry - the hearts are upside-down!
