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

Educate Me

The last of my wool from the Bendigo Woollen Mills, I was really scratching to do the Borders as I only had small amounts left of each colour.  For a boy I think.


Sandra your blanket is superb.   It looks immaculate both in design + presentation.   Well done and Thank You X ✔️⭐

Sandra, you have once again left me speechless!!!  Where you find the time - and the patience - to perform these miracles is beyond me :))  What a gorgeous gift for a little one in S.A.  No worries about the border - it's perfect and adds a definite charm to the whole piece.  So well done ... xo

That is a super blanket - well done!  

Sandra, you amaze me with your beautiful blankets! Each knitted square is perfect and they are all joined together brilliantly with the strips and then finished with a matching border…. so much skill, work and time, a child will love it :))

Another amazing blanket, Sandra.

What a gift to treasure, Sandra!!! This blanket is STUNNING!!! A big cheer for your mighty effort.  :))

That’s an amazing blanket Sandra. I hope you’ve seen that some of your blankets were distributed last week at the Lion Park Informal Settlement. They were a win with the children.

"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.
