Squares from USA!

Hello Everyone!

I'm very happy to be showing you some great Squares that came in yesterday from USA!. itty_bitty very kindly sent me the most gorgeous Squares. Such a variety, beautiful patterns and beautiful colours.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get them posted for her yesterday because Mr. Twins and myself went down to Poole, South of England to see our dear friends Brenda and Owen. We had a wonderful day with them both but it was late when we got back so unfortunately no time to take photos etc.,  Thank you both for the wonderful gift yesterday, it's on my table 'take a look', so pretty!.......

If you go over to Flickr there are some details about the Squares. itty_bitty very kindly sent me Squares with tags on labelling where she found the pattern from! So useful and I'm most grateful for that information. 

I've had enquiries about the 'Jan Eaton' blanket.  I am still waiting for one Square, but when I receive that one I shall be working on it. Thank you to everyone who have sent me Squares.  Thank you itty_bitty for No. 1 'Triangle Stripes!' Lovely Square.

Thank You for the Jan Eaton Square. No. 1 'Triangle Stripes'

I am hoping to give the Blankets out in a week or two, they are nearly ready. I've been busy tying them up with ribbons and doing the cards for them. When I stand back and look at the Blankets I'm just amazed! They really do look so lovely. Thank you to everyone!

I have to apologise for being quiet and not been able to get round the blogs again. I have been busy doing the Blankets and that's the reason.

Also many thanks 'Crafty Valley' apparently I have won her wonderful giveaway! What a surprise, I'm just so excited! Please pop over and say hello! She will welcome new Followers I am sure.

Well I'm really excited to be showing you these Squares. Such lovely yarn was used on these Squares and the patterns and ideas are just fantastic.

The one Square with the dress on will be great I think for when we do the 'Young at Heart' Blanket' next year, although I have to formally announce the Challenges. 1st Jan, you will have to wait a bit longer I'm afraid. This Square will be idea.   If you have any Challenge ideas, the place to go and post them is on the Flickr SIBOL GROUP.

Dress Pattern at Susies Yarn Shop and adapted.

Would you take a look at them now?  itty_bitty here's your Slide Show, I am most grateful and I am now officially welcoming you as one of our 'SIBOLETTES!'  Nice to have you join our group.

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.
