After the two very successful challenges in April and May, we would like to commemorate the "World Environmental Day" (http://www.greeningtheblue.org/event/world-environment-day-5-june-2012) and to celebrate our Planet and Mother Earth in June.

 

We have attached a video by David Attenborough to set the mood for the challenge and to give you some ideas :) 

 

We envision beautiful squares in the colours of the Oceans, Forests, sunsets or showing endangered animals and plants. And if possible and only if it is available to use natural yarns or to recycle old jerseys or your so-called UFO (unfinished objects) ;)

 

"Give a human face to environmental issues; Empower people to become active agents of sustainable and equitable development; Promote an understanding that communities are pivotal to changing attitudes towards environmental issues; Advocate partnership which will ensure all nations and peoples enjoy a safer and more prosperous future."

 

Linda Maltby has kindly allowed us to use her "KAS globe" picture to be included here. It represents exactly what this challenge and KAS is all about :)

 

Once again, we are asking that you post photos of your squares, both in the Photo section and here in this discussion, to inspire us all.

 

Mary Lokken has volunteered to set up a Flickr page for us where all the photos can be assembled.

Linda's KasGlobe!

Here's one to start us off.  It's just a plain jane made of variegated yarn that is 30% soy and 70% wool, but the way the colours work out in a square, it becomes "Sunrise Over the Savannah"

Thanks Maggie :) I am sure everybody will find some ideas for this challenge :)

Lovely squares :)

These are lovely, Maggie!

Bright and gorgeous.

I found this beautiful Aran yarn called "Colours of Nature": blue = oceans / green = forests / red = dusk / black = night sky :)

 

this is idea came to me after reading the post. It's a giraffe just incase you can't tell cos my husband asked if it was a dog lol.

Plant a Tree!!!

 

The wave and fish represent the health of the oceans and the hope for sustainable fishing.

Here's that lovely Lion Square by Joan, which was accidently posted elsewhere by her phone - these pesky phones have minds of their own!

What a cute Turtle Maggie :)

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.
