To Our October 2021 Theme
~ WAITING TO BE CHOSEN ~
Have you, like me, had yarn in your stash for a very long time, just waiting to be chosen, but you have passed over it in favour of other, newer yarn? Or, perhaps you have bought some yarn from a charity shop, never used by its previous owner, and it was just sitting there waiting…… then it was chosen by you!
Well, October could be the month when this yarn has its chance to shine, to fulfill its destiny and be chosen to help warm a child in SA, or perhaps even make a toy!
Appliqués or small needlepoint pictures may be at the bottom of a drawer or your work basket too, so please dig them out, for they too have been waiting to be chosen to enhance a square or a blanket that a child will treasure!
Do you have a pattern that has been on your ’to do’ list for a while? Well this could be the month you try it!
This month isn’t really an inspirational theme, but I hope it will encourage us all to look at what we have, and do what we can for the children. I hope we can also encourage and inspire each other!
Seeing photos of the children at distributions always motivates me to do as much as I can to help them….. and I know that I’m not on my own, we all wish we could do more!
The children in SA will welcome everything you make in any pattern or colour: blankets, squares, hats, hand warmers and toys!
So happy crafting everyone!
Our Colour of the Month for PJ’s is PURPLE there are so many beautiful shades!
Aww, such sweet colours. He will be MUCH loved, Chris. :))
Diane, I love the violet colour of your squares and I adore your leftover handwarmers. Beautiful combo.
Perfect purple squares and a wonderful collection of hand warmers Diane! You have created beautiful hand warmers from those little bits waiting to be chosen, the children will love them I’m sure :))
You've had great fun making each pair of handwarmers slightly different, Diane, and also putting together the arrangement for the photo. Lovely shade of purple, and very neat knitting.
BEAUTIFULLY neat squares, Diane....what a yummy colour!!
SUPER selection of handwarmers...there's a a colour combo to delight everyone, most definitely!!
Thank you Karla, are these beauties in your garden?
Yes, they are, but they usually bloom in September. I know you love this colour so I took my photo earlier.
Wow, more beauty from your garden, I can see why this variety is called Water Lily. Thank you for sharing :))
