In the book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss, the Grinch stole Christmas from the people of Who-ville.
In South Africa, disease and poverty stole childhood from millions of children.
Can we displace the Grinch in a child’s life?
Just for a moment?
Christmas gift making is starting early !
Ronda requested more time to prepare the blankets before the holiday season arrives.
Besides themed squares, we also need many, many Plain Janes to complete a blanket. Please do not be deterred by the fancy square. We would love to see how you are using Christmas colours to warm a cold child. A square made with red, green and/or white would be quite striking. Variegated Christmas yarns also make interesting squares
A few reminders:
- Please securely butterfly a 20”/50 cm tail to each square and bundle squares into lots of 5 or 10, to help the sewers in South Africa.
- Your parcel does not need to arrive in South Africa before the end of the month. When your parcel arrives in the next few months, know it will be appreciated and that you are keeping children warm.
- Would you upload your photos to the photo page as well as to this challenge. (Not sure how to add a photo? Click here then scroll to “How do I add a Photo to a discussion” )
- After uploading your photos, please go to The Drive To Fill Ronda’s KASvan and add to the squares tally.
Marvellous Mary has set up Flickr. Great place to see all the photos together and spread the word !
