Easter Monday and a new 'SIBOL'.

Hello Everyone!

I do hope your Easter break is enjoyable.  I would like to thank Luna for putting up the new Square today. She is always finding us something new to try.  I did try the Flower pattern the other day from the video she installed.  I have to try it with different yarn though as the yarn I tried it with was far too silky. So that's on my list for later on today.

Yesterday I managed to finish the 6th 'SIBOL'. Blanket. Thank you to everyone who contributed Squares for it.  I actually had a lot of these Squares quite early on in the project but as the Blankets are colour grouped I wasn't quite ready to start on it straight away, as I needed a few more Squares to match.  This Blanket brings to mind 'Oranges'.  I managed to finish it yesterday while Mr. Twin had gone off to his British Touring Cars event.

As you can see from the above photo, there isn't much room left on the Conservatory sofa now!

It all starts from somewhere!

ooh! Those early days of Planning!

They go well with my Carpet!

Starting to take shape now!

I often use a Paint Colour Chart because I'm useless at colours!

I'm useless with colours, I used the Paint colour chart.
