I'm busy buzzing around for Christmas! Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 36! 1/3 'Christmas Blooms'.


Hello Everyone!

As the title of this post suggests, I'm busy 'buzzing around' making Christmas SIBOL Blankets and what fun I'm having today!  I'm very happy to say that I have finished the first of three Christmas SIBOL Blankets. I can't tell you how excited I get with every SIBOL Blanket we 'jointly' make. This one is no exception.  The first of three Christmas SIBOL Blankets.  I always get excited when I know I am nearly finishing a Blanket.
Then I can't wait to go outside and take some photos for you.

It's pitch dark  and pouring of rain now and it's only 6.00pm but this afternoon I took the opportunity while we had some sunshine to take some photos for you. 

'Buzzing around?'   Yes, that's what I said.  Thank you dear pertinitaco for your gorgeous Bumble Bee Square.  Would you like to see Ladies?

Do you remember this little fella?....pertinitaco your little Christmas Bumble Bee! complete with Christmas hat and sack! Ready to give his gifts out!!! :)

pertinitaco sent a Square to me and she had crocheted a gorgeous little Bumble Bee complete with a Christmas hat and Christmas sack, isn't he adorable?  Please pop over to her blog and say hello I'm sure she would love you to visit.

Here's another little project for you.  Nettie has a wonderful tutorial on her blog for Butterflies and Christmas stockings, why not take a look too!

and who's square is this?......begins.........with b....5?

I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has sent me Christmas Squares.  This first Christmas Blanket is made up of mainly Christmas Flower Squares.  I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed working with these Squares. I do hope you like it. I give you a Challenge and you never fail to amaze me. The Squares I receive are just absolutely out of this world! Thank you all so much.

I think I had better show you now....... Mr. Twins was just about to cut the grass, I asked him before he began if he would take a photo for me.  Here I am.......

Would you mind Mr. Twins? Thank you!

Do you like it?
Can you see your Square? If you can't don't worry it will be either in the next one or the one after that. There are 'only' 3.  The next one will have the Snowflakes, Wreaths, Christmas Trees in.

Would you like to see our SIBOL Slide Show?  Here goes........

I hope you enjoyed looking at the SIBOL Slide Show, have a lovely day! Thanks to all our new Followers, Welcome! Nice to have you visiting us.
