I am delighted to host another  KAS monthly and there  is something for everyone in this month's topic,   Whatever your level of skill,  let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys, 

 

Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of their gardens.  Be inspired by the colours of nature. Remember that Plain Janes are the foundation of KAS blankets and we would love to reflect a riot of colour in the garden with both self-coloured squares and picture squares.

 

Some ideas:

  • The obvious - flowers, plants, trees, lawns, leaves, soil, fruit & veg.
  • Garden visitors – birds, bees, butterflies, ladybirds, hedgehogs, caterpillars, – perhaps hold a teddy bears’ picnic.
  • Garden features - bird feeders, water features, sand pits, ponds, picnic tables, trellis, fences, paths, crazy paving, tubs, and window boxes.
  • Tools of the trade – spades, forks, wheelbarrows, watering can.

  • Be inspired by a selection of squares made this year by KAS members.

    Help to create a garden of delights to bring colour,       cheerfulness and warmth  into the children's lives.       

    I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.

    THANK YOU

Thank you Susan for a such a bright and beautiful intro, it contains plenty of ideas to stimulate our imaginations!

A FAB intro, Susan!! LOVING all the bright, inspiring colours.  :))

Spring is finally springing here, 'downunder' and the bulbs and shrubs are coming into their own. Spring...my fave season.  :))

Thank you, Chris and Bev, for your quick response and kind words. I think we could all do with some colour and cheerfulness in our lives in these troubled times.  Keep safe and keep stitching!  

Thank you Susan for a great intro.  With all those blues pictured, I think you're calling on me and Glo, expressly, to participate. 

I look forward to seeing your squares of blue - with plenty of inspiration in nature!

Mili, this made me laugh.  How did you know I like the colour 'blue'???  hahaha ... xo

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
