Squares from Spain arrive today!

Hello Everyone!

Well I'm sitting here with a nice hot cup of tea to warm me up, because it's pretty dull and cold today here in the UK.  I've just got back in from supermarket shopping and I've been longing to get these Squares on to SIBOL.  They arrived this morning from Merchy in Spain. Please pop over to her blog and say hello!

Now first of all back  in September Mandas challenges put up a pattern on here  .Mystery C.A.L.  inviting you all to have a go at making a very Special Christmas Square for SIBOL.   I am very pleased to say that Merchy had a go and here is her Square.

'Mandas Challenge' put a Challenge up on SIBOL. Merchy very kindly took part. Here is her Square! Thanks very much for the Squares Merchy! Gorgeous, really pretty! Her Christmas Challenge to SIBOLETTES!

Isn't it lovely? Thank you Merchy and Thank You Mandas challenges!

I also received two other Squares from Merchy a beautiful red and yellow one for our 'Bonfire Challenge'

'Bonfire Square!' Explosive Colour once again! ....>

and....... A Square for our 'Jan Eatons' Challenge.  This is No. 2 'Tiny Textures'. This is a gorgeous pattern and Merchy has made it in a lovely yellow yarn.  So interesting to see all these 'Jan Eaton' Squares come in.

'Jan Eaton' Challenge No. 2 'Tiny Texures' Gorgeous!

I've made you a Slide Show Merchy.  I've been out in the garden for you this morning. Sit back now and enjoy and thank you so....much.
