Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 25! 'Blue and White' 1/6

Hello Everyone!

I hope you have all had a good weekend.

May I thank everyone today for visiting SIBOL! Our new Followers too! Welcome! It's so nice to have you joining us and I would like to thank you too for enquiring about SIBOL!  I do hope you will pop over to our 'spin-off' blog SIBOL - The Archive.  This is a place where we occasionally post details of the Squares we make.  If you want to try a new pattern out, this might be the place for you to go.  It's early days over there at the moment but we do already have some great posts!  Why not try out a new Square?

I've managed to finish the first of the 'Blue and White' Blankets today. I just had the ends to finish off and make the Butterflies.  Mr. Twins  went to watch the British Touring Cars today so I had a little time to myself 'apart from when I had to cook Sunday lunch for the rest of the Family.'  By the time I had finally finished everything the sun had gone in.  But I've done my best with the photos.  I am so disappointed with my Flowers this year, they have been absolutely beautiful and all of a sudden they have just died a death. I do hope 'The Garden Bells'  Flowers on the table bring me a little colour. Kate sent me some seeds all the way from America and I'm afraid I haven't been too lucky with them. They were doing well but then the slugs felt rather hungry one night and decided to eat them for tea. Also our silly weather in the UK the poor plants haven't known quite what to do. We had that heat for weeks and then the rain....... Oh well I have managed to take some lovely photos over the weeks to show you with the Squares and Blankets so when I'm feeling in need of a bit of a pick me up, I'll have to go back to the Flower Blankets for photos for the Blog Header. It seems like Autumn to me already.  I hate being without colour in the garden.

I'm very pleased to say the first 'Blue and White' theme Blanket is finished.  Thank you to everyone who contributed Squares for this Challenge.  I have enough Squares for 6 Blankets. So now I would like to show you the first Blanket. The Squares are absolutely gorgeous, Thank You So Much!!

Have a good week everyone!

  6. Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at

    your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,

    has some overlapping. I just wanted to give
    you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

  7. There are certainly lots of particulars like
    that to take into consideration. That may be a great point to deliver up.
    I offer the ideas above as

    basic inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you

    bring up the place crucial thing

    will likely be working in sincere good faith.


    don?t know if best practices have emerged around issues like that, however

    I'm certain that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Each boys

    and girls feel the influence of just a second’s

    pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

  8. I do like the way you have framed this specific difficulty and it does indeed
    give us a lot of fodder for thought.

    Nonetheless, from just what I

    have observed, I basically

    trust when the

    opinions pack on that people today stay

    on issue and not embark on a soap box associated with the news du jour.
    Anyway, thank you for this

    superb point and while I

    can not really concur with this in totality, I respect

    your perspective.
