Squares from the UK! Ta - Dah! SIBOL 44.

Yummy Strawberries!!!.....>

Hello Everyone!

It's so nice to be popping in to say hello to you. 

Well it's pretty cold here in the UK and actually as I type  it's snowing again.  We are quite lucky where we live we haven't had it too bad but lots of places in the UK have had  loads.  It didn't stop the Postie from calling this morning though. 

A knock came to the door this morning and I thought it was a parcel arriving for Mr. Twins.  He was expecting a new jacket which he had ordered.  I shouted Mr. Twins your jacket has arrived! But then I saw my name on the front of the parcel.  I wondered what it could be.  It was from Amanda! I was amazed because inside I found this.....

Amanda had sent me 8 100gram Balls of Acrylic Yarn and 7 Squares. She wondered whether SIBOL could use the yarn as she hadn't got a use for it. Well SIBOL definitely can Amanda, thank you so much. It will be great for the Mens' Blankets. Your Squares too are so pretty, thank you!  I love the colours of the Squares and I love the patterns. I've made you  a Slide Show, sit back and enjoy now.

Thank you!

I'm very happy to be showing you the last Blanket in the 'Strawberry and Cream' set.  I have started the Jan Eaton one, but found it difficult to concentrate on it, because I knew I hadn't finished the Strawberry set. I feel I am where I want to be now, so I can concentrate.  I have had such fun putting these Squares together, they have all been so amazing. I have loved each and everyone of them, thank you all so much for your wonderful ideas.  I give you a Challenge and every time you come up with the most wonderful Squares. You are so creative!

So here is SIBOL No. 44.  Manda's challenges has very kindly come up with a name this afternoon for the latest SIBOL. 'Strawberry Fields'. Great name Amanda! Thank You.
