Squares from the UK for the Sea/Seaside - Mens' Blankets!

Hello Everyone!

Well it's a very wet day here today in the UK. We've had such a lot of rain.  I'm just wondering whether our Summer has ended now, because as the days go on it feels like Autumn will be here sooner than what we think. The Flowers seem to be going off, well mine do anyway and the leaves are falling in the Garden. We need something to brighten us up. Let's think back to the hot Summer days we had recently........

You know we have a Sea/Seaside Challenge, well Joyce 28 has very kindly sent me some great Squares for this Challenge.  I think they are really, really good.  I just love the 'Punch and Judy' Square that Joyce 28 has made. The little beads in the sand are just such a good idea.  I'm going to show you a close up of this one so you can see them more.  Then underneath one of the Squares that Joyce 28 has sent for the Mens' Blanket. Once again she has used tiny beads.  As I've said before everyone has their own ideas, and it's nice to see the ideas coming through.
'Punch and Judy' Square for our Sea/Sideside Challenge. So lovely, a simply gorgeous Square!

I love this Square for the Mens' Blankets. Little beads in the centre, so cool, I love it ...>

Aren't they good? Now Joyce 28 are you sitting comfortably?  I'm terribly sorry I couldn't get out into the Garden, it's absolutely pouring of rain today.  I'm itching to get outside as well because I have finished a SIBOL.  Can't wait to take some photos, but 'I'm not gonna get wet!'

Here's your very own Slide Show and many, many thanks for the gorgeous Squares!

I told you they were good! :) Have a nice weekend everyone! Thanks for visting SIBOL today!


  1. Wow! You're one clever lady ;o Joyce28. Very imaginative!

  2. Hi Joyce ! your squares are cute,very nice square , love them all.Awesome squaresssss.

  3. Love to see these very pretty knitted squares!

  4. simply beautiful squares Joyce well done! x

  5. Glad everyone likes them. I'm not that clever really, the patterns were in a book (or two) I have, so all I did was follow the instructions.
    Still they do look good when finished, and perhaps are a little more time consuming that some.
    I'll crack on with some more.
