Squares from the UK!

Hello Everyone!

I'm very pleased to show you some Squares that have arrived today, both sets from the UK.

First of all we have Margarets' Squares. Margaret has sent me some pretty Granny Squares. Just look at the lovely colours and can you see the special one?  Margaret has sent a Square for our 'Christmas Challenge'. A Granny Square with a Christmas tree on the front made out of trebles.  I just love it. Want to have a go?
Please see our Side Bar for the Challenge details.

Margaret here's your Slide Show and thank you very much!

Beautiful - Thank You Margaret!

The other set of Squares I received today are from Linda . They are so....pretty! Many thanks Linda. I love the combination of Colours you have used.  Linda has a lovely way of attaching a little yarn, I can always tell they are her Squares! She also sent me a home-made card in with the Squares such an unusual idea. I do hope you will pop over and check her blog out, she also does such a lot of work for Charity.

I've made you a Slide Show Linda, unfortunately it's inside because it's tipping down outside! I hope you enjoy your Slide Show.

Many thanks Linda and Margaret, very nice of both of you.

I'm off now to Crochet, have a good day everyone!
