Squares from Australia and Australia today! :)

Hello Everyone!

May I first of all thank you for the lovely comments on the previous post. Nice of you to comment on the Squares received they truly are lovely. Also Lauren thanks so much for the name for SIBOL No. 25! Yes, I'm very pleased to say your name has been chosen (well I didn't have any others!) for this Blanket.

                                                             'Wedgewood Willow'
                                                              Thank You Lauren!  

I am really happy to tell you that I had two lots of Squares arrive today from Australia.  The first set are from
Jenni  in Queensland, Australia.  These colours are similar to Joyces' Squares received the other day. They are simply lovely for our Mens' Blankets.  I am ever so pleased you have taken part Jenni in our SIBOL project and I  am glad you have enjoyed making them for the Elderly.

Here's your Slide Show Jenni!

Such lovely Squares!

I also had Squares arrive from Lauren (LT81) in New South Wales, Australia.  Lauren has made some Squares for our 'Bonfire Night' Challenge, 'Black and White' Challenge, 'Christmas Challenge' and she also sent me some Purple Squares which will be great for other Blankets. I am so grateful to both of you. Once again Lauren thank you for taking part in our project.

Would you like to see your Slide Show Lauren?

We're going to have some great Blankets coming up. Thank you Jenni and Lauren!


  1. Perfect name. The Blue and White is a real stunner.

    What happened over at your other blog? It's not working for me. Is it being rehauled for your big day. I know it's soon, as you were right after me.

  2. Yep a perfect name and some lovely squares.

  3. Thanks for showing my squares, they look really great in their own slide show, very pleased with themselves :-)

    Love the blue Wedgewood Willow, perfect name!

  4. My squares look so bright scrolling across the screen - thanks Sue!

  5. Youre both most welcome. I love making the Slide Shows. I may be limited soon because the weather is changing, pouring of rain now, and I wont be able to get outside.
    Thank you both, great Squares!

  6. Superlative! Wedgewood Willow fits to a T :D
    Joyce and Lauren- thanks for the squares. They are all wonderful.

  7. Ooops! I meant to thank Jenni too!
