The Story of rebekka's goodies' Squares' 'Double Ta - Dah!' SIBOLS 41 and 42! 'White Blossom' and 'Lilac Bloom'.

Good Morning Everyone!

Well what a freezing cold morning it is has been in the UK this morning! That didn't stop me at all from doing my work for SIBOL.  There I was outside at around 9.00 am this morning taking photographs of a 'Double Ta -Dah! Double you say? Yes, that's right!

I'll tell you what happened back in July.

On the 15th July (yes all those months ago) I received wait for it 50 Squares! Yes, that's right 50. I was amazed.  They came from  rebekka's goodies' all the way from the South of England. 

The Story of Rebekka_uk's Squares. These Squares arrived 15th July from Rebekka_uk

I received 50 Squares, 25 purple and 25 green. They were split into 8 Daisy flowers, 2 African flowers, 16 Poppy Flowers and 24 Granny Squares.

Can you believe that? I asked her if she was sure, yes she said......>

rebekka's goodies even sent me possible layout designs which I have followed.  She did say I could split them up and use them in other Blankets but I thought they would look better left altogether.  The photo below is the layout rebekka's goodies  thought of. I have followed it for her.

I always worry when I can't use Ladies Squares' straight away. I just want to say they are never forgotten. I get to them as soon as I can.

Well rebekka's goodies  I do hope you will like the Blankets I have made with your Squares. I have to say I have had trouble getting the correct colour yarn to match them up with. I hope you like what I have come up with.

Up-dated - 'White Blossom' named by rebekka's goodies.

and the other Blanket........

Up-dated 'Lilac Bloom' - named by rebekka's goodies
