Thank you to Chris Chiplen for inspiring us with a beautiful, mindful umbrella.....
Our Umbrella Theme for 2019 is….. CHILDREN ….. for they are the focus of all that we do!
C Colour….. We can help bring colour into the lives of children with all that we make and send.
H Happiness….We hope that what we send brings each child warmth and a little happiness.
I I can make a small, but significant difference to the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children, from the comfort of my own home.
L Love…. We hope the children feel the love and care crafted into every stitch.
D Delivery …. We all need to make and send as much as we are able, to ensure that every needy child has a blanket, hat, hand warmers and a toy delivered to them by Ronda and her wonderful team.
R Remember that whenever Ronda receives a parcel from each of us, whether it be large or small she has to pay the same post office charge. So one larger parcel is better than two smaller ones!
E Every time we send a parcel, please put a zero value on the custom form, or Ronda will be charged a custom duty that she can’t afford.
N May the caring hearts and hands of our KAS members, from the many nations of the world, continue to work together in 2019 to help bring warmth and a little joy to vulnerable children in South Africa.
Thank you All....and happy crafting in 2019. xo
Thank YOU, Bev for all you do for KAS - so many hats - And hosting twice next year?!?!? You're a GEM as Amy said it so well. Thanks again. This is a GREAT list for 2019.
Oh wow Bev, I only posted a couple of days ago about looking forward to the 2019 theme list as I hadn’t contributed much this year, (busy with others things) and what do you know..... here it is. Thank you........Shall start thinking!!!!!!!
Thank you so much Bev for co-ordinating the themes list and hosts for next year....... not an easy task! Some interesting new themes too :))
A great list, but what a task...and thank you, Bev, for including my theme.
Lots to think about for next year, although mustn't get ahead of myself seeing as I still have squares to finish off from earlier themes...note to self: clear the decks first ;)
Well I just happen to have wool that can be used for each month's theme, some of it was gifted! I should really start now lol xxxx
