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!
Lovely work, Sandra, I like the mix of stripes with your variegated border.
Lush colour + crocheting Chris ✔️✔️
Beautiful, Chris. Very artistic photograph!
A GORGEOUS display of two very pretty purples, Chris. :))
Those are perfect Chris…the colours and the size.
Zip pee dee do da. These are fantastic!
A number of years ago a bought a very pretty tin at a KAS fund raising event that I attended in Purton, I thought it would be a good place to store some appliques. I often admire the tin in my cupboard…. but had forgotten what was inside it until earlier this year! These appliques have certainly waited very patiently to be chosen!
Lovely squares + a fan-tab-ulous back-story!
Good job you didn't use the tin to bring home a couple of treats you bought yourself on the cake stall Chris - that wouldn't have been such a pleasant surprise when you opened it! Super squares.
Patricia, Andrew wouldn’t have let me forget cakes!
Wow!!! What a fab find, Chris...my fingers are itching to dive in, too.....haha.
LOVE the 'frames' you have created for these gorgeous appliques. The colours complement them soooo well. :))
