Squares from Tricia in the USA.

Hi Everyone!

I just want you to see these beautiful Squares that arrived from Tricia this morning.   Tricia lives in Bellerose, NY. USA. Aren't they lovely? Such an unusual pattern!

I'm sure Tricia won't mind me saying she is a Teacher at a High School in the Bronx, NYC and she's 'hopefully' going to get her students involved in square making over the next few months.  She says that if all goes well she'll be sending some over for the 'SIBOL' project.  Isn't that great news? I'm really so pleased. 

I hope Tricia is reading this post and that she'll be in contact with me to hopefully tell us what pattern she used for these Squares.  Everyone loves watching the Squares come in on Flickr and the Blogs and more often than not someone enquires about the pattern. Then when I post the photo of the Square I can put underneath where the pattern came from. I'm searching through for Tricia's email address. Tricia if you are reading could you please get in contact with me, thank you!

Beautiful Squares from USA, Tricia this morning! I hope she will share the pattern with us! Aren't they lovely? Very unusual. Can you contact me Tricia please?

Thank you such a lot Tricia, I'm so pleased you have wanted to take part in 'SIBOL'.

  1. Beautiful photographs with exquisite color and those squares...amazomg. I love the wire bird cage cloche with the squares. Clever! I have just started blogging. I would love to have you stop in and leave a comment. It would mean a lot to me.
    Happiness to you.
