Christmas already !

Yes, KASFolk, it is time to think about Christmas.

There is a popular song in North America called:

All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth.

For a child in South Africa, perhaps we could change the lyrics to:

All I want for Christmas is a blanket and a hat. 

Let’s see how many blankets we can have ready for Christmas.  The volunteers in South Africa will sew the squares together but it would be fun to know how many cyber blankets we could make in a month.

Plain Janes in greens, reds;  Sparkly squares;  Shiny squares and, of course,  squares decorated with trees,  snowpeople,  stars,  candles,  hearts (to mention a few ideas) will make the blankets very festive.


We will be keeping children like this sweet angel, warm and cozy.                                   

  “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”

                                   - Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol

October Challenge - All About Christmas

Sorry guys... he's ever so late for the October challenge!! He was a challenge!!

October Challenge - All About Christmas

Snowflake. It is not quite centred within my 'frame'. Quickly grabbed yarn and needles and took with me when hubby wanted to go look at replacing our ride on lawn mower. I made the stocking stitch part with an even number of rows and stitches and it should have been an odd....hence snowflake is over to the right and down just a tad. :)) But, hey, that is SO

I know that this challenge is over, but I had a lot of sparkly yarn and motifs left over. As I didn't complete my usual 35 squares in October, and having already done 35 Plain Janes for the November challenge, I thought I would complete this one with the remaining 11.
