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!
Love this, Amy!
She's fab Amy - she made me do a silly grin ❤️
AWESOME, Amy....so sweet....so FUN!!
Another cute animal in pretty variegated yarn.
Love it Amy!
Adorable, Amy, I love it.
Sorry this is late, but thank you so much for hosting this theme. It made me pull out some patterns I have wanted to use and just sit there. Well they are still sitting there, but they are on top of the To-Do pile. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
Late is never a problem for our themes, better late than never! This bright beauty was worth waiting for Karen, and it has been put together so neatly. Number 49!!! :))
I love the vivid colours you used in your blanket. Beautiful!
KAS girls certainly have a good eye for variegated yarn, Karen! Bold and beautiful.
Wow Karen that’s absolutely fabulous!
