This month we embrace all the things that come are under the African sky.





...and the Animals.

Now is the time to be creative with flags, animals, beadwork designs, instruments, cloth, housing styles and so much more from the continent of Africa.

Let us celebrate together, all that Africa has to show the world, and wrap the children in a warm cozy blanket.

Super neat as always Diane and great choice of colours :))

     Thank you Amy.

Thank you, Amy.   This has been a very creative month, and wonderful work has been displayed here.   There will be many excited children in the future.

Amy, you have been a great host and contributor…

Thank you so much Amy.   I've enjoyed the variety of projects shown.   I have something yellow still 'in the mix' + hope to finish it soon, Kxx ❤️✔️

Can't wait to see your yellow.

May 2022 Theme - Under the African Sky

A herd of elephants....almost.

The elephant in the top right is a bit darker, smokier blue than it appears. When I saw it online, I just had to have it, as it reminded me of a blanket that Sharon B. once crocheted, with the elephant squirting itself with water over its back.

Well, I thought I set myself a modest target of squares this month, in the hope of achieving my aspirations...just once. However, covid had other plans and I have been busy this month with extra grandma duties, taxiing and being a personal shopper with occasional cook thrown in....but on the upside I have continued to escape it.  :))

I still have a few to complete.

I have to agree that little fellow in the upper right is so cute cool.  The Dumbo elephant is rather striking, too.

Sorry to hear about COVID and extra grandma duties.  I hope you got lots and lots of extra hugs.  Your squares and appliques are always delightful and appreciated on the Forum and in South Africa.

Your herd of elephants is wonderful, Bev.   And, I am doubly thrilled that you were inspired by an elephant square that I once made.   I thought the little elephant showering itself with water was a fun one, too.   I must get that pattern out and do it again, now that you have inspired me in turn.

So glad you have escaped Covid, so far.   I've been lucky (and very careful) so far, but Craig got it a couple weeks ago.   He had a mild case, so recovered quickly.   But, overall, I'd rather escape it altogether.   Stay safe and healthy!

Oops, I thought it was a blanket.  :)) I have just looked back through your photos....can't believe it was over 6 years ago!!

Stay safe and well.  xo

My first ever crocheted blanket for KAS!   

I made this baby blanket in a pretty tame stitch but I kept the tension even, the sides straight and I even researched and managed a contrasting border.   The yellow colours are way brighter than they've photographed but hey-he I can't have it all can I??   Lol.

I can't believe this is your first time making a crochet blanket.  It is brilliant.  You did a marvelous job with the edges and border.  WELL DONE Karen!

Spot on for this month's theme.
