Squares from Spain and the UK today!

Hello Everyone!

I've had two lots of Squares come in this morning from Ruth in Spain and also Jayne in the UK. Thank you both so much!

First of all just to update you. I'm sorry I have been quiet I've had a few things going on at home. While I've been quiet I have been trying to do some SIBOL work on the evenings.  Time has been a problem for me during the day.

Two of the 'Strawberry and Cream' Blankets are finished as you know, two more to do of those. Thank you to everyone who has left me comments, I'm most grateful thank you.

I am also trying to get the First 'Jan Eaton' Blanket made up. I have started this one. I don't really want to post another Block List on the Side bar just yet, as I want to get the first finished.

I will also be able to show you Rebekka_uk's Blankets soon. If you remember she sent me 50 Squares.

Our Blankets are ready to be delivered to Nursing Homes any day. I will do this as soon as I can. I have my Daughter at home from work so I can't do it until shes back and things have settled down, as you will understand I am sure.  Time has been rather limited for me with one thing and another. I am desperate to deliver our Blankets now, but I just haven't had the chance. I hope you will understand. They all look so pretty.

Anyway, gettiing back to the Squares. 

It's always nice to welcome new 'SIBOLETTES!'.  Today I am very pleased to welcome Ruth from Spain and also Jayne from the UK.

Jayne has been trying out some Jan Eaton Squares Pin Stripes and Dahlia.  Would you like to see them? They are superb. I just love them. The Colours and the patterns are just lovely.  I do hope you enjoyed making them Jayne as much as I have enjoyed receiving them.

Here's your very own Slide show Jayne, and thank you!

Beautiful aren't they?

Now Ruth from Spain has very kindly sent me some Squares. I love these Autumny colours and the Flower on its own is so cute!  I shall add it to our Blankets.  All I can ask is that you have patience I will work on your Squares as soon as I can.

I just love these Squares too.  Ruth are you ready for your Slide show?  Here it is!
