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...

Here are 4 Christmas squares.  You will have to believe me when I say the green is a beautiful emerald and the red is a cheery red !   Definitely Christmassy colours but the camera didn't think so.

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."
