Squares from the UK arrived yesterday!

Hello Everyone!

Many apologies to Manda's challenges and Maytaurus (MSE) because yesterday their Squares arrived and unfortunately I couldn't get on to Blogger. I tried all afternoon and it was so annoying. But today early bird as I am I'm posting photos of gorgeous Squares.

First of all I would like to thank Manda's challenges for the super Squares received yesterday.  I did tell Amanda that we had to abandon the Childrens' Picture Square Challenge unfortunately but I'm sure we will
find a great use for them next year. It's one of those silly 'Elf and Safety' issues here in the UK! :)

Anyway, Amanda made gorgeous Kiddies' Squares and if you look very closely there is something so tiny and cute at the bottom of her photo. She very kindly made me a tiny weeney pair of 'flip flops!'. They are so
sweet and treated me to a beautiful heart shaped box of fudge!!!!! I know who cares about those calories!
So Amanda here is your Slide Show sit back and enjoy.  Thank you so much for the fantastic Squares I just love them.

Look very closely at the bottom of this picture! Can you see what they are?

Weren't they just so cute!

Now yesterday I also had a beautiful set of Squares arrive from Maytaurus over on MSE. which is a Charity Knitting and Crocheting site. The work the Ladies do for Charities is simply amazing. Maytaurus has
very kindly sent me Squares before and I am so....grateful to her. The Squares will be so useful to me and I
just loved taking photos for you all to see. Maytaurus made me the sweetest little cupcake, do you want to see? Simply lovely. Thank you so much.

Maytaurus Thank You so much for the gorgeous cup cake too!

I'd like to showcase your beautiful Squares Maytaurus, here goes and many thanks!

Thank you both so much for the Squares it's very nice of you both to help me with the project.


  1. oh my gosh, these are beautiful. Oh such cute teddies. I love the flip-flops too.
    I would like to thank you for the beautiful card and letter I got in the mail today as well. You have totally made my day today Sue, it's so lovely to get pretty mail. Thank you.

  3. Super cute. I love crocheting cakes, I have a few. The squares are all lovely.
