Squares from the UK!

Hi Everyone!

Just checking in to SIBOL to show you Louises' Squares.   You will want to take a look at these because Louise has taken part in the Bonfire/Fireworks Challenge, Jan Eaton Challenge and also the Christmas Challenge.  Gosh! you have been working away Louise. The Squares are simply gorgeous. I love each one and once again 'our labelling' seems to be taking off. It's quite a good idea really because I have no doubt then knowing which Square goes to which Challenge! The Squares are all so pretty and I really appreciate them Louise.  Thank you also for the gorgeous Corsage you made me, it's really pretty, thank you!

Such a pretty Corsage for Sue from Louise! Simply gorgeous!......Thank You so much!

Louise has used some lovely colours in these Squares and I'm sure you will like them.

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.

Aren't they just gorgeous!

I feel rather embarrassed now because I was talking about my Mother looking at the Blankets the other afternoon.  I got them all down from upstairs and she was looking at each one. She was absolutely amazed at them all.  She thought the Squares were absolutely beautiful and couldn't get over how many I had actually crocheted together.  She particularly liked the purple one called 'Alice in Sunshineland'.  The Blanket was given this name by Karin because my Mothers name is Alice and she loves purple.  When Pilar (pertinitaco) read the post she contacted me and suggested I should keep this one for my Mother.  I said I would have to ask you all.  What do you think? I feel embarrassed asking you......

Oh well thats it for today. I do hope you like Louises' Squares. Thanks so much Louise they are so lovely.


  1. Seems like a good plan to me. Glad you like the squares. I will upload to the archive as soon as I work out how to.

  2. I think it would be rude not to give it to your mum!!
    Brilliant squares! Will the unusual patterns be going on SIBOL archive? i like the snow flake one and catherine wheel. My birthday is on 5th November so i am loving this bonfire theme!

  3. Absolutely go for it and give her our love as you do so!! I'm sure i speak for all the ladies on this one xxx
    And those squares Louise are fabulous xx

  4. I think your mom deserves the Alice blanket.
    Maybe she would be so kind and will have her photo taken with it for us sibolettes to see :-).

  5. No question, you Mum should have the blanket it seems so like the right one for her!! xx

  6. Yes, yes, yes, your mum must have the blanket! It would be so nice to give it to her. :-)

  7. Love the squares, love the labels, love the idea of your mum inheriting the Alice blanket ;-)

  8. It feels right, Sue, to give your Mum one of these wonderful blankets. You did this for your grandmother and it would be like a token of love from us Sibolettes to your Mum. The blankets are to give comfort and love - perfect for your Mum

  9. yes, see? it just seems the right thing to do, giving your mum one of the blankets!
    Gorgeous squares by the way!

  10. Thanks for the comments Ladies! I'm going to get back to you on this.
