I had a laugh this morning and three lots of Squares from Australia, Netherlands and UK!

Hi Everyone!

Just popping into 'SIBOL' to show you the latest Squares received today. My friend from Canada hopefully is looking in. Unfortunately no post from your part of the World yet! I will mail you as soon as possible. So sorry I know you are waiting patiently!

Wow! I had a laugh this morning Bethel of Bethania sent some Squares today and they only took around a week to arrive. Wasn't that good all the way from Australia! BUT she sent me something so wacky!! and funny!! Do you wanna see?

Well you know between us we are making the 'sun' theme Blankets (Karins idea) and the Squares received are so BRIGHT !!!! BethelofBethania very kindly sent me some ...........SUNGLASSES!!  I know I had a laugh too! The question was shall I show the WORLD??  Well why not! So here I am (Excuse the wrinkles).....

Well what a laugh I had this morning! Bethel sent me some Sunglasses to wear while making the 'sun' themed Blankets!

I know ...... I had a laugh too.  Only Bethel could have thought of that!! Thanks Bethel. Also for your Squares......

BethelofBethania (Australia) sent me these beautiful Squares and they arrived today in super duper time! Thanks Bethel. She also sent me something>>>>>>>> Don't laugh now ! >>>>>>

Bethels' Squares arrived at 7.30 am. Then at lunchtime two more packages arrived with the usual Postie.

From.........Isolde in the Netherlands (isolde2006 Flickr)

Pretty Pinks and Blues for SIBOL!

and then from Ruth (Flickr ruth*marie) (UK)

Beautiful Squares from ruth*marie (UK) arrived this morning! I'm just loving the colours, thanks so much! I love the pattern!

I am so lucky to have received such beautiful Squares.

Isolde very kindly wrote us a 'team blog' post last week. I hope you will check it out. She tells us about her Squares where the patterns came from etc., The colours are just wonderful. Thank you so much Isolde.

Ruth  has only been crocheting for around four months and I'm sure you'll all agree she has done extremely well. I just love the colours she has used. Thank you so much.

I hope you have all enjoyed looking at the three lots of Squares and I hope Bethel, Isolde and Ruth have enjoyed making the Squares for SIBOL.
Your Squares are now in the Slide Show. I hope you enjoy looking at them.

P.S. I shan't be leaving the photo on for long! :)


  1. Now, why didn't I think of that. My side is still hurting from laughing. Classic. Classic. You are just too funny or losing your minds. See I've always said just go with it, who the heck cares what us gals do over here in blogland.

    Great squares, but still laughing.

    Stop by
    Symphony in Hue is up.

  3. Oh my goodness, I am laughing so hard my sides hurt!!! What a great idea Bethel had.... and all of the squares are just beautiful :)
