After our very successful flag-waving in April, we now invite you to the peace of your garden and whole different colour pallette.
Our theme "Pick It From the Garden in May" is a chance for us to let our imaginations run wild.
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it is spring... flowers are beginning to appear at last. For those of you in the southern hemisphere it is fall and harvest time... so for all of us wherever we live, the garden offers unlimited inspiration for squares.
Do you love doing flowers??? Are you more inspired by fruits and veggies?? Do you like the ‘critters’ in your garden (caterpillars, butterflies, bugs)?.Does May make you think of dancing around a May-pole?? Are you a ‘Plain Jane’ square-maker??
Whatever you are... let the colours of your garden be your inspiration... lavenders, purples, yellows, oranges, reds, pinks... there’s no end to what we can do.
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. The address is
Let’s make May a "blooming good" month... I can’t wait to see what you creative souls come up with.

What a beautiful square Maggie.. darn it all... now you've got me humming "My Wild Irish rose" and it will probably stick in my head all day!!
Just beautiful, Maggie!
4 more squares for this challenge, all made as a part of the KAS CAL I'm running on Ravelry. :D

Soooo beautiful, Sue!!!
It's just beautiful, Sue! 50 squares, fantastic!!!
Yay Sue! 50 squares is an amazing contribution, and the are all so very beautiful!
Since May is coming to an end I thought I should check to see if I put a photo in here as well as my page. I had to scroll through to check. what an eyeful of utter delight I found. I think I will have to take a coffee break tomorrow and just go through them slowly and take them all in. Outstanding effort by everyone. Maudie xx :)
Here are my last entries for the May challenge. I had already posted the square on the right, but there is a wonderful story behind this yarn that I wanted to share with you.
On my fledgling little yarn site, I donate the profit of the sales of three types of yarn to KAS. Almost the same day I mentioned this, the wonderful Kaser, Sue Gillman, ordered a skein of yarn from me. I was thrilled! But, since Sue lives in New Zealand, she asked me to donate the yarn to KAS rather than have me send it to her. So, it was with great pleasure that I used Sue's skein of yarn to knit these two squares and a hat for the May challenge!
Thank you so much for your generosity, Sue!
