Sunny Squares from Sandy in Arizona.

Hi Everyone,

Weekend approaches!

It's been such a beautiful day here today in the UK. Really quite warm.  I made the most this afternoon and went outside and swept the Patio, got rid of those dead plants finally!

Anyway, I'm very pleased to say today Sandy's 'sun' themed Squares arrived.  Wow! Look how bright they are! Just ideal for our 'sun' themed Blankets Ladies! Aren't they gorgeous? I just love them.

Orange and yellows perfect for a Sunny day here in the UK! Sandy has sent them from the USA. Arizona. Thank you!

I love them all but I think my favourite out of all the Squares is the one with yellow in the middle and then orange and then white.  (Over on the right). I wonder where Sandy got the patterns from? I'm always interested. Perhaps when others are sending in their Squares they would put a note inside so that I can post the details. I'm sure she'll let us know. (Yellow Square - all.crafts.net 'Tilted Square'. Yellow/Orange piece-by-piece.net 'Vintage Wheel Square'. Yellow/Orange/White 101 Granny Squares by Darla Sims Sq no.6. ) Thankyou SAndy!

Sandys 'Sunshine Squares' with the 'SIBOLS!'.

I do hope you will pop over to Sandy's blog.  You can tell from paying a visit over there that she loves her Crocheting just like we all do. She lives in Arizona and keeps Cockatiels.  My Mother kept a Cockatiel years ago when I was at home. It was so tame and would go and sit on her shoulder.  They do make a mess though, but they really are good company. 'Alberto' was the name of Mom's bird. She had him for quite a long time.  We kept Budgies as Kids.  We thought the one was a male Budgie until it kept laying loads of eggs! OOh! I'm rattling on sorry!

Anyway, have a good weekend everyone!

Please have a look at the up-dated Slide Show with Sandys' Squares in.
Bye for now.

  3. Beautiful squares. I had a Cockatiel too when the girls were little, his name was "Tiel" :-)
    Very tame, loved the girls and had the run of the house as his wings were clipped. Very sad when he died though
