Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 26 'Blue and White' theme 2.

Good Evening Everyone!

Its' 10.40pm Saturday evening. I know I am good aren't I? Doing SIBOL work on a Saturday evening! I just had to load up my photos on Flickr and make you a Slide Show because today I finished SIBOL No. 26! We've just got back from our favourite Curry house and I thought I'd post this before bed for you.

Well I have to say I have  had such a lot of fun once again making this Blanket.  Your Squares are just so delightful to work with. They really are  a pleasure and I enjoy it so much.  This Blanket doesn't look much
different to the last one.  I have been using some white yarn which I have plenty of, but the special thing about this one is the edging was crocheted with home-dyed yarn from The Garden Bell.  Thank you so much
Kate for the donation of yarn it is so nice to work with and the colours were spot on!

I went outside just after Mr. Twins cut the grass today. The Garden is looking much tidier now even though my Flowers have gone off now, which is a real shame. I planted up some pink tulips today in my Dads' wheelbarrow and my Grandmothers old metal bowl which I now use for planters. So I'm hopefully going to get something to show you in the Spring.


Here's my Slide Show, sit back and enjoy the latest Blanket. Thank you so much for the wonderful Squares I really do appreciate each one!





I would like to thank all our new Followers, it's such  a pleasure to have you on board! Enjoy your Weekend everyone!
