I hope you have all had a good weekend. I'm just popping in to show you some lovely Squares I have received from Marilyn 'roomontheleft' who lives in the USA. It's such a pleasure to receive your beautiful Squares Marilyn and you've really made my day! They are just so pretty.
Marilyn tells me that some are made with Acrylic and some with the Merino blend. The Acrylic is Caron 'Simply Soft' and the Merino is Caron 'Country'. The shiny ones are the Acrylic. The patterns used are the Circle of Friends and the Sunny Spread. They are just so lovely. Also Marilyn used 'Fishermans Ring' by Priscilla Hewitt on the peach one showing in the Slide Show.
Thanks so much Marilyn. I do hope you will pop over and check her blog out and say hello! I'm glad you are now a 'SIBOLETTE!!'. Sit back and enjoy your Squares in your very own Slide Show!
Oh just a bit of 'goss' (gossip) Lucy Attic 24 has a bit about her Web site in the new magazine out this weekend 'Irresistible Gifts to Crochet'. It's telling you about her Web site and her family life. She is also in 'Let's Knit' this weekend. 'If you didn't know already!'.
The other thing I nearly forgot to say - you know how I make the Butterflies to put with the blankets, well Rebekka_uk suggested me making Snowflakes, Stockings or Trees to put with the 'Sunshine Blankets' instead of the Butterflies especially for the Christmas Blankets. Do you think this is a good idea?
Then something else came into my head I wonder if anyone wants to make any Christmas Garlands for when I deliver the 'Sunshine Blankets' in November? If you do please feel free to send them in. email@example.com I thought it would be nice for the Nursing homes to put them up for Christmas. What do you think? Using the same ideas maybe Snowflakes, Stockings, Trees etc., I know a lot of Ladies were crackers on making these last year over on Flickr.
Here I am signing off and I forgot to mention the 'Jan Eaton 200 Block Challenge'. Would anyone like to make a Crocheted Square from her book? Turn to the Block List Directory at the front of the book and choose a Block 1 to 25. Make the Block, send it to me and then I will make them into a Blanket for the Elderly. We still have spaces!! Please let me know which number Block you choose! firstname.lastname@example.org
For a full List see the side bar please. Thank you!
I do hope you have enjoyed your visit to SIBOL! Welcome to all our new Followers!
