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

 

Time to search your stash for REDS and GREENS and also

BLUES and SILVERS and GOLDS!!!

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. - source:thedailybeast.com

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...

Christmas Tree Lights

Another festive applique.....

I'm very slow getting into things here, but I am getting into things :))  What a phenomenal array of beautiful Christmas "ornaments" for our children's blankets.  Everything is so festive and beautiful!  What lovely work you are all doing!

Here are some of my Tunisian squares.

This one is Cro-Knit with some Christmassy ruffles...

These two are festive Tunisian Honeycomb  ...

And this one I'll call "Cranberries in the Snow" ... in Tunisian :) xo

And now we (the River John Square Knitters and I) are working our way through some very pretty Christmassy red and green yarn that was donated by a wonderful lady in Sault Ste Marie, ON, Canada :))  Thanks, Linda ... xo

Angels We Have Heard On High

Some Christmassy stripes. The bottom one is Robin's Birthday Cake pattern from last month.

Sue and Debbie, I hope you don't mind the slight hijack of your thread. Just wanted to let everyone know that time is running out on my guessing game. I expect to have my stash busted this week. So anyone who wants to win a KAS shopping spree, head on over to my Guessing Game thread. :-)

Here are lovely squares from Susanne Leverton.  Love her long 'square' :-)
