Lucky SIBOL!

Hello Everyone!

I'm popping in to show you what I had in the post this morning. Recently Steph held a Giveaway on her
 blog. She had  12  - 50g balls of Gedifra Selena Ribbon that she no longer had a use for and she was asking what her Followers would do with the Ribbon yarn if they were so lucky to be chosen to receive it.

Well I left a comment on her blog saying that if SIBOL was lucky enough to be chosen they would definitely find a use for it.  When our SIBOL Blankets are finished they are prettily tied up with Ribbon. The Ribbon yarn would be  absolutely ideal for this purpose.

Well I was amazed to find out that SIBOL had been chosen to receive the Ribbon yarn.  So in the post this morning we received

Gedifra Selena Ribbon Yarn
 in 4 different colours:
Blue & Orange
Blue & Yellow
Blue & Pink
Blue & Blue

and this is what I have already done with some of the yarn.

Steph also sent me a pretty card she had made herself. Isn't it gorgeous?

 The rest I will be keeping for when I do the Mens Blankets, the colours of the Ribbon yarn are perfect.  Thank You so much Steph.  Please pop over to her blog and say hello!

I am working on the Jan Eaton Blanket and the last two Strawberry and Cream ones too. There's quite a bit of work on the Jan Eaton one so bear with me.

I hope you all have  a good weekend, the sun is shining at the moment so that's good! Been pretty cold again though. Wrap up everyone!

Thanks again Steph, very nice of you.
