Can we try and spark some interest and conversation through our crafting this month to help the children learn....?

Letters, numbers, small words, colours, shapes, animals and nature are all superb ideas to stimulate their brains.

The designs, colours and ideas can all familiarise items, words and colours to aid their memories and make them feel clever and happy.

The colour of the month for our PJ's is BLUE

which is a great colour to represent water, the sea and sky in our work.

It has also recently been suggested that BLACK and WHITE squares are needed by the volunteers at The Barn In South Africa.I'm looking forward to seeing your imaginations run wild as you post any makes for us all to be inspired by too.......Hats, handwarmers, squares and blankets are what are really needed.

Happy crafting members, Karen xx

These squares look very pretty Patricia.    It's the thought of using Christmas gift wool to busy your hands for the South African children that pleases me most ❤️

They are lovely teal squares Patricia :)) I was never a fan of teal, but I’ve found it goes well with so many variegated yarns that I use, that it’s become a must in my stash now!

I think the colour is GREAT, Patricia....and am LOVING the texture in your squares.  :))

I love  teal colour and it returns the favour by loving me.  I am making a scarf in that colour at the moment.

Amy suggested I probably couldn't wait to get my hands on some blue yarn after our February theme.  I have no earthly idea how she knew that, but she was absolutely correct ... hahaha ... xo

Gorgeous, Gloria. That shade of blue is far more to my taste!

What a dreamy blue Gloria.   Superb choice of stitches too, Thank You ✔️

My favourite shade of blue in beautiful patterns :))

What a pretty collection of textures, Gloria.  This is a sweet shade of blue, and will look great in any blanket.

VERY pretty blue, Glo!!! LOVING the mix of patterns in the bottom square.  :))

I finally finished the blanket from last month.  It has a fair amount of CoM shades of blue in it, so I'm posting the completed version here.   Apologies to Gloria for not finishing this in time to post on her page.

Love, love, LOVE this blanket, Sharon!!!

Just it all striped sections.....or self-striping me it looks like a combination of both.   :)))
