Squares! Squares! Squares! Squares! UK and the Netherlands!

Hi Everyone!

Well a busy day here in 'Two Times'. Thank you for the gorgeous Squares received this morning!

I've had four lots of Squares arrive today from the UK and the Netherlands. Who shall we start with????
I know let's have a  look at Crochet3love (Flickr).  She has sent some lovely Squares in today. One for our Spring Challenge and the other for our 'Young At Heart' Challenge.

Crochet3love (UK) Your Squares arrived today! Thank You!

Such  pretty Squares  they are just lovely. The Handbag has been left open to put a little gift in what a wonderful idea! The other a  little Chick is so cute because he has a little wing that flaps out and the flowers are just so beautiful.  That one is for our 'Spring Challenge' Thank you very much Crochet3love.

The next two are from Kim.  (UK) Do pop over to her blog and say hello.  Kim has made a Square for the 'Jan Eaton Challenge'. It's the 'Christmas Rose' Square and it's No. 28 if you want to have a go at it.  The other one is a two tone Green Square. This is a lovely pattern.  Both Squares are lovely Kim thanks so much!

Kimblesathome (UK) Your Squares arrived today! Thank You!

bonsall (Flickr) (UK) has sent me some Squares today which are in pretty colours. I just love the colours she has chosen to make her Squares.  She has used textured yarn too which makes them look so different. We've also got 2 Farmyard Squares.  One is a cat and the other one is a cute piggie! Just have a look at these Squares. I'm sure you'll like them.

Such pretty Squares don't you think? I love the colours!

Then we cross over to the Netherlands to Sandra.  Sandra has been working very hard for SIBOL and has sent  10 Squares!  All so different and they are just lovely. Squares for our 'Two Tone Green Granny' and a 'Circle of Friends' Square. Such a pretty 'Jan Eaton' Square too, it's No. 46 and this one is called 'Meadow'. I love the colours you have chosen to make the Square up Sandra. Another Square towards our Flower collection. You will probably recognise it. 'Dahlia' another Jan Eaton.  Great selection of Squares Sandra. I'm going to have fun with these.  Thanks so much for taking the time and trouble to put these together for us.

Sandra (Netherlands) Your Squares arrived today! Thank You!

Well you've certainly been keeping me busy today! Thank you all so much. They are all absolutely wonderful, I'm sure you will agree.  I have made a Slide Show but I have made a joint one if that's okay. It does take a lot of time and I've had a lot of Squares today.  I do hope you all enjoy looking at 'Squares from the UK and the Netherlands'.

Thanks for visiting SIBOL today.
