REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE 5TH November and the beautiful Blankets we made to celebrate this occasion.

Hello Everyone!

Just wishing you all a very Happy Bonfire Night!  Well tonight is the evening when everyone lets off Fireworks to celebrate the failure to blow up the Houses of Parliament in the UK.

I do hope tonight we don't get Fireworks through our Letter box, like we did two years ago!

I couldn't let the day go by without posting photos of our Bonfire Night Blankets. Do you remember them?

'Guy Fawkes Delight'

'Bonfire Challenge' Blanket - 'please add note' if you see your Square (if you can!)....>


'Do I have to say it Ladies?' Okay then.....'please add note' if you see your Square! Thank You!

'Striking Light'

SIBOL No. 35. Here we go again!!!! 'please add note' to your Square Thank You! Names please! ....>

I've been in a bit of a difficult situation this morning, because last night I put a post up asking for someone to help me by Crocheting up the last Jan Eaton Square No. 21. That poor little Square was unhappy because no one seemed to want to 'bring her to life!'.  Well when I was in bed last night checking my mail on my iphone 'Jess' mailed me and said she would do it. So I replied back saying yes please!

Then this morning  Luna has posted saying she has made No.21. (Before I could get on line).  Although I am so happy Luna did this for SIBOL, I think really I shall have to let Jess make it because she was the first to mail me. Is that okay with you Luna? May I use your beautiful Square for the Mens Blankets?

OOh I do hate tricky situations......

It is so nice to see Luna is back posting with us. I hope you have had a great time with your Mother and your family Luna.

Have a good day everyone!


  1. Luna's square is beautiful so I think you should use hers and instead I could make one from the next 25 blocks in the book. The new blankets are beautiful, I especially like the Guy Fawkes one :-)
