Ta - Dah!' The Big 40! 'Strawberry Delight' and Jan Eaton Square from Kimbles!

Hello Everyone!

I'm very pleased to be introducing you to SIBOL No. 40 today! But before I do Moleymakes (UK) has sent me some pretty Squares. I'd like you to see them.....

moleymakes (UK) Your Squares arrived this morning! Thank You they are so pretty I'm sure everyone will agree!

Don't you just love the patterns and the colours? My favourite colour is pink and I just love these! Thank you so much Moleymakes, they really are gorgeous! Each one so interesting.......

Now my Ta - Dah!  I have to thank you all because today I am showing you 'the Big 40!'.  I can't believe I have now assembled 1,000 of your gorgeous Squares.  Do you want to take a look? I hope you like it!  Pity the weather hasn't been too good today, I've done my best with the photographs out in the garden.....

'Strawberry Delight' - Thanks to everyone who have contributed Squares!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 40! 'Strawberry Delight! - Thank You Rebekka_uk!
Thank you Tinka for telling me today where she obtained her 'Jan Eaton' 200 Blocks book. She gave me a link she used.... I'm sure she won't mind me pasting this part of her email to me.

I'm so happy today because I just got Jan Eaton's book by mail! I found a link where I could buy it much cheaper than on Amazon.com, and the shipping was free! So now I have the "Bible of crocheted squares" for only 9,14 Euro ( sorry no idea how much that is in £ but I'm sure when you click the link it will give the price in your currency.) I thought I should send you the link because you are "promoting" the book on your crochet sites. I geuss many people will be thrilled knowing this book is available at this minimum price.


Without further a do as we say......Here's SIBOL No. 40's Slide Show.  Sit back and enjoy 'hopefully'.

UPDATE - Friday

Thank you Kim  for your Jan Eaton Square. This Square is No. 5 'Twin Stripes'.  I love the colours you have used and it's such a pretty pattern. The last one has arrived I can now start making the Blanket.  I'm so pleased you have taken part in our Challenge.
