Busy day for me today!

Hi Everyone!

It's so.....hot here in the UK again today! What's the weather like with you?

I'm very happy to be showing you some Squares which have come in today firstly from the UK. Margaret very kindly sent me these Squares.  I've made you a Slide show Margaret.  I had to wait a while today because it was so bright outside that I couldn't get a good shot.

Margaret has sent a beautiful 'Blue and White' Square. Now this Square has a lovely flower Crocheted on. Now I'm wondering whether to put this into the 'Blue and White' Challenge or put it into the 'Flower Challenge'.  I think.......I'm going to put it into the 'Flower Challenge' Blanket so this will go into Number 2 which I'm doing now. Then we have a very pretty 'Strawberries and Cream' one.  Isn't this just wonderful? So unusual I just love it.  Then Margaret has sent over a 'Picture Square', just look at that! Also a lovely Granny Square which will be great too in future blankets.  Of course I couldn't wait to take some photos of these Squares to show you and of course I'd be happy to receive some more whenever you feel like doing any.  Thank you so much.

Please sit back and look at Margaret's beautiful Squares, I love them.

Secondly, I received a package from a Friend living in Germany. Farruska (Flickr).  Not only did I receive some Squares fron Farruska but her Mother very kindly made me some too. Her Mother lives in Portugal and I was really touched by her kindness in helping me.  Both lots of Squares are just so beautiful and I thank you so...much.  I'm over the moon with these Squares too.

Not only do I like all the Squares I have received today, but I absolutely love them!  I do hope all three Ladies enjoy the Slide Shows I have made for you.

Thanks so much.


  1. It's beastly hot here too. Hanging out inside today. Got my nails done, so don't feel like hooking too much.

    But, aren't these just wonderful new squares that have arrived.

    So, give us the total so far?

  2. I will swap my weather for yours, gladly!
    Lots of lovely new squares for you, you are going to be sooo busy Sue.
    Yes please Sue, how many squares do you have now?

  3. I couldn't tell you off hand. I will have to let you know in a few days.
    Thanks for your comments everyone!
    Love to you.
