Squares from the USA and the UK!

Good Morning to everyone!

Thanks for visiting SIBOL today. I hope you all had a nice weekend.

I have some Squares come in today from The Garden Bell over in the USA. Thanks so much Kate. Kate has a fantastic blog I do hope you will pop over and say hello. The photographs she takes are just absolutely beautiful. Her blog too is just so funny!

Kate has very kindly sent me a Square for the 'Circle of Friends' and some others too, which are all just lovely. The variety of yarn has certainly made the Squares look so different. All very good colour choices. I love the Green Squares, great shades of green.

Beautiful Green Squares TGB, great patterns. I love them. Thank You!

Thanks so much for making the Squares Kate I know you have been very busy with your own Circles!

I also had some Squares sent in from 'The Girl' (UK)  'The Girl' very kindly wrote us a team blog post, I do hope you will pop back and read what she wrote. She has found that making the Squares has helped her take her mind off a few things. 'That's SIBOL for you!'.

She also has a lovely blog. Why not pop over and say hello! Her Squares are for the Two Tone Traditional Granny Square Challenge in Green.

The Girl (UK) Your Squares have arrived! Thanks so much!

I have put your Squares together in a joint Slide Show, sit back and enjoy Ladies. Many thanks.

I do hope everyone will also pop over to Sarah London's blog and help out with the Granny Square project 'Crochet a Rainbow' for Australia.  She is collecting Granny Squares and I'm sure our SIBOL visitors would love to help out. She's making the Granny Squares into Blankets for those effected by the floods.  Thank you.

Then if you still have spare yarn, why not pop over to http://thiseclecticlife.com/share-a-square-2010-faq/ and help those Children with Cancer in the USA.
Have a nice day everyone! Thanks for your continued support.
