AROUND THE WORLD
What a wondrous world we live in. Full of intriguing and interesting landscapes, both natural and manmade. From the mountains to the seas, from the newest cities to the oldest civilizations.This month we will take a trip around the world, discovering new and/or interesting sights....from the smallest flower to the largest structures. We can explore the many things that make our countries unique.
Our special events this month include Mandela Day, when we honour the late, great, Nelson Mandela.......
and the gathering of the world at the Olympic Games.
Our Colour of the Month (CoM) is BLUE. I had many colours in my stash that were a questionable blue, but on googling 'blue' I discovered a site listing 144!! I'm all good. :)) Here is a little sample from the site. I'm sure we all must have a little in our stash.
Please remember the importance of our Plain Jane squares in the blankets that are created. Perhaps make some in blue or a colour/s inspired by something in your landscape or somewhere you have visited. Have fun...and please share with us.

What a lovely idea, Marion. I certainly found my "happy place" by joining the Forum. Lovely squares too, of course!
Love these squares, Marion. Great colors, textures, and perfect stitching (as always). Also loving the thought that we are a whole circle of friends. KAS certainly saved my sanity over the years, just being able to help in a small way, while enjoying my craft, too.
A lovely thought, Marion. It certainly is a friendly place to be.
Your squares are BEAUTIFUL....so colourful !! I love the white and red border you have edged these with...soooo pretty.
Love the circle of friends Marion and as usual perfect squares.
Thank you , Marion, for your magnificent squares. I´m very glad to be one of you.
Beautiful - you are so talented Marion. These are especially mesmerising! X
A super square, Patricia, and a fact that I didn't know. The Square Circle is not only a wonderful group of friends (saving my sanity at the moment), but a source of education too!
I agree with you Lesley. It´s saving my sanity at the moment, too. The Square Circle is such a quiet harbour in the stormy ocean.
Well said Lesley.
This is lovely!In Germany we say Weihnachtstern...We always have them for Christmas.Thank you for the information!
That's interesting, Patricia...I didn't know that. :))
They are such a bright and cheery plant. I've been given one or two over the years....they don't normally last too long...I don't have green thumbs, I'm afraid.
A lLOVELY, vibrant square. :))
