Thanks for stopping by. Welcome to all our New Followers today, pleased to say hello to you!
May I first of all thank Luna for the great post previously. Please scroll down the page and see what Luna has been up to. She has made gorgeous Squares for the 'Bonfire Night' Challenge. They are full of 'Explosion' and 'Fireworks' I think. The colours are just great. Thank you so much Luna. Luna is one of our 'team bloggers' and I am always so grateful for her support. She also has a wonderful blog herself so please fly over and check it out!
Today I have had two lots of Squares come in. I can't wait to show you them. We've had some great Squares come in for Bonfire Night Challenge and also the Men's Blankets.
I have to say at this point I'm terribly sorry but we have to cancel the 'Children's Picture Square' Blanket. The reason being one of my friends over on Flickr said that she thought Hospitals wouldn't take the Blankets due to our 'UK Health and Safety Regulations'. I made enquiries after she said with the Childrens' Hospital and this seems to be the case. They have 'Strict Infection Regulations' which they have to keep to. We could make the Blanket and try and donate it for Fund-Raising but I really didn't want to go down that route. I'm so sorry to the few Ladies that have made some 'I've wasted your time!'.
To the Ladies who have already donated Childrens' Squares 'would you like them back' or shall I keep them? Or do you have any other idea?
The Challenges listed over on the side bar are the ones currently running. Now when these Challenges end on the dates given. I shan't be putting any more Challenges up for 2010. The Challenges will start again in 2011. So fresh ideas would be welcome and I'll make a note of them. The reason being is come September I think Ladies will be busy with their Christmas Crafting, making their own Christmas Gifts. I don't know whether they would have time to think about meeting Challenge dates! But of course if you fancy
still making the odd Square you know I would be ever so grateful. I shall carry on assembling the Blankets and get as many out this year as I can. Unfinished ones will be given out in 2011.
I have six Blue and White Blankets to make up. I have sorted them into piles. They are waiting to be done. I have started on the first batch. They are such pretty Squares and I'm looking forward to seeing our first 'Blue and White' Blanket. The Flower Blankets came up really nicely I thought. So thank you to everyone who has sent me Blues and Whites!
With out further a do, I want to thank Hazel for the gorgeous Crocheted Squares received this morning. She particularly picked out some yarn which she thought ideal for our 'Bonfire Night' Challenge. Just look at it in the Slide Show. It has such wonderful sparkly bits in it, I love it. The other two 'Grandad' Squares we call them because of the Men are great too. I love the Colours. They are absolutely ideal so thank you very much Hazel! Here's your Slide Show Hazel. Enjoy!
Lovely Squares weren't they?
Now the other batch of Squares I had come in today were from Lili 4g in France. She has very kindly sent me Squares for SIBOL before and it's so nice that she is still enjoying our project! Once again we have some wonderful Squares for Men! The Colours are just what we need.
So thank you so much!
Wonderful Squares thank you Lili 4g!
Have a good day everyone and thanks again for your support.
