If I live to be 100, I'll still have plenty of yarn....but still, I keep buying......but everyone should have one obsession...it keeps life interesting......and I'm not harming anyone......lol.

I'll look forward to that!

Looking forward to the 2019 Wish list and Themes. I’ve checked in a few times on the forum to see what’s happening as I haven’t made any items this year, been busy with other activities. I have just started making squares again, and as we can now sew them together I shall make a blanket with pink and lime green squares in all different patterns.

Hi Nicole. My apologies....we have just a couple of months of 2019 to finalize and then the list will be posted under a new discussion....possibly by the end of this week. :))

At this stage, I can tell you that we begin the year with.....

January.....TOYS - SOFT, CUDDLY, HUGGABLE LOVE......time to fill up the KASBarn toy chest again, with lovingly made or caringly selected new and pre-loved toys. Picture, patterned or PJ/coloured squares representative of.

February......A SLICE OF AFRICA....African-fabric-inspired designs and/or colours, traditional houses, cooking implements, flora and fauna unique to or commonly found, in Africa. Mandela Day.

March......A IS FOR APPLE.......Educational squares using colours, letters, numbers, short words, appliques/pics. Anything that stimulates learning.

April.....LOVE IS IN THE AIR......Colours of love....stripes of red, pink and white, appliques and knitted/crocheted-in hearts, cupids, etc.

Remembering that PJ (plain coloured, in garter stitch or single crochet) squares,  in each theme, are most needed and very much appreciated.  :))

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
