Welcome to our November theme 

Put on a Happy Face.

This month was going to be hosted by our dear friend, Anne Powell. Sadly, Anne passed away suddenly, in March.

Looking through her photos has sure put a smile on my dial. I have included some of her fun faces in the picture squares below. They are the little pink pig and the yellow/red and blue/blue variegated smiley faces.

Faces of all kinds are so engaging and just looking at them can put a smile on our own.

Took the photo a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post it - getting it in before the end of the month :))

Gosh you crochet girls are so clever!   These are ssso cute, well done ✔️

Awww, Lesley, these are so cute!  Warmth, love, and a friend - all in one square :))) ... xo

They are great Lesley. 

Lesley they are super faces, children will love them :))

FAB fun faces, Lesley!! They sure made me smile.  :))

Last Christmas a KAS sister made and sent pretty needle point angel cards to several KAS friends who loved them, Anne included. One of the other recipients recently asked me if I would like to incorporate hers into a KAS blanket. I decided that I would like to use it this month during what would have been Anne’s theme, a reminder of Anne, a KAS angel.......

The colours in the top photo are the true colours, lovely and bright.


Anne with her much loved dog Meeka......

Oh my goodness, Chris, this is a beautiful blanket!  Thank you to all three of you ... the friend who made that beautiful angel, the friend to offered it for such a special blanket, and you for creating this masterpiece!  I know, absolutely, that Anne would be touched by such thoughtfulness.

And you can see from the smile on Anne's face in the photo that she adored her little pug ... xo

What a touching tribute, Chris. It’s beautiful.

How beautiful, and drawing together so many KASers.  For Anne to be idle, was a rare happening.  I don't think that this was a frequent pose.  However, let us pause and reflect.

Mili, I agree that Anne would rarely - if ever -  sit with idle hands in her lap!  I love this photo, and am always drawn to that telephone below the lamp behind her.  I wonder ... how many "minutes"  did we spend chatting with with our dear friend?  Time well spent and treasured memories created, I say ... xo

Oh Chris this is such a touching emotional entry.   Beautiful blanket + tribute to a gentle kind fun woman X
