Squares fron the UK and the USA!

Good morning to you all,

Thank you for stopping by.  I'm very pleased to be showing you these 'beautiful' Squares. They are simply lovely. They are from manda's challenges.  I do hope you will pop over to her blog and say hello. I'm sure she'll be  very happy if you visit.

Now the Squares, where do I start?  Amanda has very kindly sent me some lovely Squares for our Challenges.   Two for the Spring Blanket, a Jan Eaton Square which is No. 29. 'Bobble Stripes' I'm sure you will recognise it. Beautiful colours thank you.   Also 'Circle of Friends' Square which has come out lovely. A Floral Square and.......a Cup Cake Square.  OOh, I do  love Cup Cakes!  I'm wondering Ladies it's up to you this time.  Do you think we could fit a  Cup Cake Blanket in?  This Square from Amanda is just delightful and I'm really thinking I'd like to do one.  I'd be happy to have feedback from you. What do you think? Shall we do one?

A cup cake Square, isn't this just lovely!........ Thanks so much for all the beautiful Squares mandas' challenges!

So pretty!

I'm really thank ful to Amanda for sending me some yarn which will be lovely for the Men's Blankets, I do hope it was spare!! Very sweet of you to think of SIBOL once again.

OOh! I've got to show you these Squares!  Here they are! Amanda enjoy your Slide Show and thanks again!

Many thanks Sandie.  The other two Squares are really nice patterns also. I am most grateful thank you.

other two in future Blankets. I hope you enjoyed making them Nicky.

rags4bagsflickr (UK) Your Squares have arrived today! Thank you!  Really pretty Colours, I love them.

Thanks so much,. Here are your Squares.

Well I've had a lot of Squares again today. I can't wait to play with them more!

Have  a good weekend everyone! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. So glad the squares arrived and are suitable. The multi-color is the Jacob's Ladder square in 101 Crochet Squares book #81. The green is from July 5 post at http://normasneedleadventures.blogspot.com/2006_07_01_archive.html . It's one of the circle to square things. I know people often wonder about the patterns used so thought I'd let you all know. The other is, of course, the Circle of Friends. Use it for the COF ghan or any other as you most need.

  2. Absolutley love the variety of squares that have come in for the last few days, everyone is doing such wonderfull things for the picture squares!!! you can see the lambs prancing in the fields and the little chickie looking for it's mom -- or maybe a worm or two. all the colors for all the pretty, beautifuls, wonderfull squares, these blankets are going to knock the socks off of those who receive them. Wonderfull job to ALL the ladies for such awesome squares!!!

  3. I had loads of fun making them,i'm glad you loved them as much as i did creating them xx i love seeing everyones squares all the beautiful colours and designs well done everyone xxx
