Squares from the Netherlands and from Spain! Busy Tuesday (Updated!).

Good Morning Everyone!

I've had a busy morning. Lots of Squares today! I can't wait to show you.

First Karin of The Netherlands has very kindly sent me some great Squares for two Challenges. The 'Strawberry and Cream' theme and also 'Mens' Squares in darker colours for 'Mens' Blankets!' Her Squares are simply gorgeous and I'm so pleased she is enjoying doing Squares for SIBOL.

Thank you so much Karin! I'm presenting you with your own Slide Show!

Thanks Karin I really appreciate your Squares! I'm sure everyone enjoyed looking at your Squares!

I would also like to show you Squares from Pilar (pertinitaco Flickr) in Spain.  She has very kindly sent me some Squares once again for the 'Strawberry and Cream' Challenge. Isn't it nice to see how everyone has their own ideas.  We've said this so many times before.  Each set of Squares is just so different.  Pilar like Karin enjoys a SIBOL Challenge.  I just couldn't wait to get outside really early this morning to take my photos.  I do hope you enjoy looking at them.

Pilar, make yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy your very own Slide Show! Thank you so much for the wonderful Squares!
