Well hasn't it all been happening these last few days on SIBOL? I do hope you will click on 'older posts' and catch up with all the News! It is quite fast moving on here sometimes and I wouldn't want you to miss anything! I've been a bit quiet these last few days I have my Daughter at home 'Little Miss Twin 1' and Mr. Twins has been at home too. We went out for the day yesterday up to Sheffield Shopping Centre, Meadow hall. It was really nice and we enjoyed the day out together. Unfortuntaly, 'Little Miss Twin 2' was at work so she couldn't come which was a real shame.
Oh Joyce, thank you so.....much. Today's post was soo....interesting! I am so pleased you found the time to 'team blog' with us, isn't it just so much fun! I love having new Friends join us on here. You are right isn't it amazing what you can make with a few odd bits of yarn! Some gorgeous Squares you have there and it will be so much fun to receive them for SIBOL! Thank you so much for the wonderful words. I really enjoyed your post so much and I'm sure everyone else did too!
This actually brings me to an idea I had a few days ago. I asked Posy Linda who often comments on SIBOL if she would like to write about how she learnt to Crochet. Now Posy Linda hasn't got a blog 'as yet' so unfortunately she wouldn't be able to write a 'team blog post', but she has agreed to either email me her Story or write it in the comment box. So I will really look forward to this. Would anyone else like to do the same? It's absolutely fine if you haven't sent Squares for SIBOL, this is open to anyone who is visiting SIBOL. You may just be a 'Folllower', that's perfectly okay. Please join in the fun.

You may not have a blog. Send it by email and I will type it up for you.
OR...... If you have a blog. Email me and I will send you an invite out to 'team blog' with us.
Let's have some fun. I think it's always so interesting to read how others started Crocheting. I actually learnt to Crochet with my best friend at school, I was around 14 or 15 years of age. We had Cookery lessons and while waiting for our food to cook we would sit on high stools in the Cookery room with wool and hook in our hands. We were always making Blankets out of Granny Squares and cardigans. What fun we had. This is my Purple Granny Blanket I made it's still at my Mothers' house. I'm afraid it has a couple of holes in it now, but I treasure it.
I'm so grateful to all the new Ladies who have posted on here, as I have said it's so interesting when we new people join us.
Anyway.........Let's get on to the Blankets...... I couldn't think earlier on over at Flickr how many Blankets I had Crocheted up. It's SIBOL No. 19. Can you believe that? Well anyway another one is finished. Thank you so...much for the Flower Squares everyone! Remember what I say.....If you don't see your Square please don't worry, you will do ....bear with me......I still have more to do.....
It's green again, I'm sorry about that, but I wanted to use it up and I actually like using the Green as an edging. It gives it more of a 'Garden feeling'. I hope you enjoy looking at the Slide Show and thanks again to everyone who has very kindly sent me Squares for the Flower Blankets in particular as this is what I am working on at the moment.
I've had a suggestion this evening from Wanda who very
kindly sent me some Squares.
She has suggested an Archive for Squares.
How many times does someone say......
'OOh, that's a nice Square could you share the pattern please?'
Let's help each other. I know we post informaton on here
and have nice chats about the Squares we have made,
but let's see if we can make a blog which is purely showing
So you might show a Square you have made. But then underneath
write where you got the pattern from.
Just those two simple steps. A photo and details.
Let's keep it simple over there, rather like turning a page
in a Jan Eaton's book.
A photo and pattern details.
Shall we have a go? Please join us. If you are interested email me
firstname.lastname@example.org for an invite.
If you don't have a blog, email me the picture of the Square and
the pattern details and I will post it for you.
Have a good evening everyone, and don't forget let's hear from you!
