Hi Friends!

It is that time of year again, when we look toward the themes for the coming year.....2020.
Please, while you are crafting, pop on your thinking caps and share with us what YOU would like to see on the list for next year. We may not be able to include every suggestion, but we will certainly give it a good crack.  :))
Thus far, I have noticed that members have mentioned  PJs, Stripes, diagonals and music (repeat of this year) in various discussions.
We also usually include an education month (letters, words, colours, shapes) and 'Africa' theme, but these are not 'set in stone'.
Please share.....the more ideas = greater variety. 
I am so appreciative of the umbrella created, once again, by our friend, fellow KASer, Chris Chiplen.
------------------
Sometimes a photo can say so much more than words can express.....
Please remember these joyful faces as we knit and crochet in the year ahead.
We have the ability with our love, imaginations, needles, hooks and yarn to brighten the lives of vulnerable children in South Africa, as we make and send squares, blankets, hats, hand warmers and toys to Ronda and her wonderful team of volunteers to distribute to the children.
So let us bring JOY to as many children as we can in 2020!
-----------------------------------------------
Thank you, Chris. Your inspirational 'umbrella' will certainly set our 'ideas wheels' in motion. 
Looking forward to reading your theme suggestions, Everyone.

Better Late Than Never - this is Lesley's title for her beautiful new blanket made from last December's squares and this was my comment on it: "I also think you may have stumbled upon another new theme category - I'm sure we all sometimes find the month passes too quickly and we've missed the boat."

Unfortunately, Patricia, I think this could be the theme for all twelve months of the year - for some of us at least - lol!

Yes, I agree!  This happens to me way too often.  (We can always send the squares, of course, but it would be great to send them as part of a theme)

Sometimes? How about every time.....hahaha.

Perhaps ‘Favourites’....... whether it be colours (as Patricia has suggested) or variegated yarn, a pattern, or even something from a theme that we have previously enjoyed.

Earlier this year we had a fund raiser to create a virtual KAS Garden.

What about creating a KAS Garden in yarn, using colours, patterns, flowers, trees, birds, appliqués etc?

I think it would be fun to fill a KAS Garden with different squares!

"Favourite Pattern in your Favourite Colour".  Theme

Thank you Chris and Arlene.....more fun themes.....LOVE them!

Using our bottom of the basket colours, those impossible colours, browns, black, that oh so ugly green. Look up Stephen West, the designer, to see how he works with colour.

Gorgeous, Mili!! Thanks also, for your fab idea.  :))

I use browns and blacks quite a bit - I like the definition that black can add either on a square or as a square on a blanket - and for those who like stripes both black and brown can be used with other, brighter colours.

Of course, they are also good for teddy bears and comfort dolls.......

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.
