In the book, How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss, the Grinch stole Christmas from the people of Who-ville.
In South Africa, disease and poverty stole childhood from millions of children.
Can we displace the Grinch in a child’s life?
Just for a moment?
Christmas gift making is starting early !
Ronda requested more time to prepare the blankets before the holiday season arrives.
Besides themed squares, we also need many, many Plain Janes to complete a blanket. Please do not be deterred by the fancy square. We would love to see how you are using Christmas colours to warm a cold child. A square made with red, green and/or white would be quite striking. Variegated Christmas yarns also make interesting squares
A few reminders:
Marvellous Mary has set up Flickr. Great place to see all the photos together and spread the word !

Here are the first squares for the Christmas challenge from Robin. She has been very busy!
They are all so beautiful !! I love how they compliment each other. She has also made an adorable hat..
Mary Anne has crocheted great Christmasy squares !
Linda, can I suggest today's song should be Here Comes Santa Claus?
I see that Mary Anne has crocheted a Santa Claus, and here is one that I knitted. (This version sung by Gene Autry)
Looking through the stash for Christmas colours, I discovered I have lots of red that will need to be doubled, not too bad on the white but very little green…of any shade ! You will be seeing squares in many variations of white and red with a bit of green :-) Here are the first four. The bottom left centre is actually quite sparkly but doesn't show in the photo.
Because I promised myself I wouldn't buy more yarn but use the mountains of donated yarn, I started thinking outside the Christmas colours and about carols, We having been singing/humming a few since the challenge started. I’ve decided to crochet “The 12 days of Christmas”.
