Welcome Everyone to the May theme.  :))

This month, let's share our love of music, our love for 'our' children...and have a fun time doing it!!

Squares for this month might include appliques, intarsia, duplicate stitch of.....Djembe or other drums, other African musical instruments, piano keys, guitars, trumpets, musical notes, etc.  
I have created a couple of charts for African instruments, which I am happy to share and there are numerous charts online for trumpets, guitars, drums, etc.
However, this may not be everyone's 'cup of tea', so........
how about this......
Pattern of the month (PoM) for May is PJs. 
PJs (Plain Janes, as we affectionately call them) are garter stitch or single crochet stitch squares....but they can also be textured squares created in a single colour. They are always in demand as they form the 'backbone' of each and every blanket. Almost every blanket created by the volunteers and Gogos in South Africa has mainly PJs with just a few picture squares or stripes in them, so the importance of PJs to a blanket, can NEVER be underestimated.  :))
 
This month for a little fun, it would be great if, when you post a pic of your PJ or your picture square, you could tell us, or post a link, of a song that has your colour or your instrument in it.
For example.....

MAY 2015 THEME - Shades of yellow
So, let's have fun making squares that feature instruments and/or PJs with colour!! Bring on those tunes, Everyone....there's plenty out there.....
And for a little extra......
Every time you post a pic of a square/squares with the name or link of a song,  your name will go into a draw for a little 'shopping trip' in the KASshop. There will be three 'trips' up for grabs. So please, get knitting, crocheting and looming....and let's make beautiful music together.

May 2019 Theme - Finger Snappin', Toe Tappin', Music.

Two guitars (there is a sparkly silver section in the guitar, but unfortunately it is a wet, dull day here, so it's not showing up).....and here's a little tune to get you dancing...or laughing.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=293Irm-vxtE
