SQUARE HEART OF THE MONTH AWARD

Edited by Gloria Grandy 

THE JULY 2015

SQUARE HEART AWARD 

IS FOR

ARLENE G. - CANADA

In January 2012, Arlene's gorgeous work (and her artistic way of photographing it) began to brighten up the pages of our monthly themes.  

Her work is designed to provide the children with warmth and a bit of pleasure.

This adorable little zebra found its way into a child's arms and put a huge smile on a tiny face!

Arlene's encouraging and supportive comments are welcomed in every Forum discussion she joins. 

For anyone who may have missed this wonderful example of Arlene's creativity, here is a very special poem she wrote.  Simply beautiful, Arlene ... thank you for sharing it with us!

 

ONE SQUARE FOR AN ELBOW –

Recipe for a KAS BLANKET

One square for an elbow, one for an arm,

One for a shoulder, to help keep it warm.

One for a wrist and one for a knee,

One for a hip - just how hard can this be?

One for a bicep, I nearly forgot!

Where is that green yarn I know that I bought?

One for an ankle and one for a thigh,

One for a shin - a square blue as the sky!

Now one for a bottom to help keep it warm,

Whatever the weather with sunshine or storm,

With violet? Or yellow? as warm as the sun,

Then double these numbers - and two sides are done!

Next, one for the left chest, one for the right,

Two for the tummy with colours so bright.

One for each collarbone, one for each hand,

With love for a child in a far-away land.

Four more for the back and one for the neck,

Have I finished knitting? Just count them to check.

Thirty-five squares created with love,

And maybe an extra, - could I knit a dove?

If I can’t do a blanket, I can knit a square,

If I cover an elbow, there are others here,

We circle the planet and work one by one,

To send in our parcels - a blanket is done!!

With love to all at KAS 

and the wonderful people who join up the squares

- Bless you, every one!

You really deserve it, Arlene. We all see so much care and love in what you do.

I found this quote :

It’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”

Happy Knitting, crochet and sewing everyone to make miles of smiles!

Dear Gloria,

Thank you for posting the award.  Especially, it looks so nice the way the page was laid out and the photographs and everything. It took a lot of work to arrange the poem and photos and the page really looks so lovely.  What a beautiful memory for me.  (and a Happy Birthday for me this month!  a lovely surprise!)

Blessings,

Arlene

 

I still love your little zebra toy, he's adorable!  

Dear Arlene - forgive me for responding so late to this lovely news - I'm so pleased that I managed to9 get in before the award is moved on for August!

Thank you for all you do and have done for KAS - your contributions are so valued. Thank you too, for the many little encouraging messages and comments you send to me and to others - they make such a difference.

Such gorgeous work Arlene! A well deserved award

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."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
