Just popping in to thank Karin for putting the Square up. Isn't it gorgeous?
I'm hoping some will have a go for our 'flower' theme. If you have 'sun' Squares still on their way, please don't worry, they will be accepted even though the Challenge has ended.
You'll be pleased to know that I have now received enough 'sun' themed Squares for 5 Blankets! Now I know what you are thinking Ladies, Gosh Sue, how will you cope with all of those! Well I have to say I will be just fine. You know I'm loving it!
Can I just say you don't have to do these Challenges, if you just want to make any Square you like please do. I realise from emails that Ladies go to work and meeting deadlines is sometimes a bit difficult. The Challenges are just for a bit of fun. It gives us ideas and something to aim for but as I say you don't have to do them.
Please remember to enclose your email address and other details which are in side bar. When the Squares come in I like to let you know, it's just a lot quicker if I have the details to hand.
Now the exciting bit...... I have had two lots of Squares come in today. Some from NY USA from Bienzfive and the other package was from Gibraltar Louise. Funny really these two coming together, because a couple of weeks ago Gibraltar Louise asked if we could do a 'strawberries and cream' Challenge she was inspired on Flickr from Bienzfive. Now isn't that funny how the two packages arrived bundled together in an elastic band!! I couldn't help but smile.
Gibraltar Louise made some pretty Flower Squares, they are such beautiful colours and they look so delicate. I put them on my table in the Conservatory, the doilies underneath belonged to Mr. Twins' Mother. But I think they looked so beautiful displayed on there.
Thank you Gibraltar Louise. Now Bienzfive has very kindly sent me some more Squares too. Have a look at these Squares, aren't they lovely too? OOh, I just love Squares don't you. Bienzfives' Squares will be perfect for the Flower Challenge and for the Strawberries and Cream. I just love the pink she has used, it is so pretty... Here's one of her photos but you will be able to see the other couple of photos in the Slide Show I have up-dated in the side bar.
Thank you both Gibraltar Louise and Bienzfive, well done and your help is very much appreciated.
Please have a look in the Slide show now.
So now I'll get on with the Sun theme Blankets, and aren't I looking forward to making them! Thank you all for your comments on 'Butterfly' too!
