SQUARE HEART OF THE MONTH AWARD

Edited by Gloria Grandy

THE NOVEMBER 2015

SQUARE HEART AWARD 

IS FOR

KAREN BENNETT

and her Mum

JULIE HOBSON - UK

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our Square Circle Forum met Karen and her crafting talents in August of 2010. 

A Forum friend wrote:

"After we met Karen in the summer of 2015, she went away and made a blanket to include each one of us that attended, with her thoughts on each one of us."

This is Karen's very special "Big Day Out" blanket!

How inspiring it is to browse through her photos.  Treat yourself and have a look:

Whether it's squares ...

... or cuddles ... 

... slip overs ...

... or  jumpers...

 

 

... handwarmers ...

... or cuddly toys ...

... Karen has never failed to amaze and delight us with her talents.  And more importantly, the children in South Africa have benefited from the care she takes to create color, warmth and fun for them to enjoy!

Karen's mum Julie joined us in April of 2013.  

Here is a tiny sample of the wonderful things she has made for the children.

Karen shared this with us:

Here we have 19 squares from my mum, Julie Hobson.

Yes, this is the same mum who donated all of her yarn to me a couple of months ago because she didn't think she was able to knit very much due to the start of arthritis.

Nonetheless, it appears she has been bitten by the KAS bug ...

Please have a look through these photos of Julie's beautiful work ...

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.
