In the book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss, the Grinch stole Christmas from the people of Who-ville.
In South Africa, disease and poverty stole childhood from millions of children.
Can we displace the Grinch in a child’s life?
Just for a moment?
Christmas gift making is starting early !
Ronda requested more time to prepare the blankets before the holiday season arrives.
Besides themed squares, we also need many, many Plain Janes to complete a blanket. Please do not be deterred by the fancy square. We would love to see how you are using Christmas colours to warm a cold child. A square made with red, green and/or white would be quite striking. Variegated Christmas yarns also make interesting squares
A few reminders:
Marvellous Mary has set up Flickr. Great place to see all the photos together and spread the word !
Gracious Gitta has set up the Christmas Album. There are so many wonderful squares that Gitta has opened a Second Christmas Album

Oh, forgot the song .... I've never actually heard this, and couldn't find a link with anyone singing it, but I like the idea expressed, especially in the last verse. So enjoy everyone. Here is Percy, the Puny Poinsettia:
Lyrics to Percy, The Puny Poinsettia :
Now at Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas...and the birds continue to arrive :-)
The French hens are adapted from a cross stitch pattern and done in Tunisian simple stitch.
Here are lovely squares from Jenine.
