I'm very pleased to be popping in today I have lots of Good News to share with you.
Firstly, we have been featured in 'Inside Crochet'. This is the April issue. I'm over the moon that we have a half page spread with gorgeous photos of some of our 'Sunshine Blankets'. Thank you to everyone that has contributed Squares to SIBOL, with out you this would not be possible.
Here's the link if you want to read the article.
Secondly, I am very pleased to tell you that an on-line yarn shop has very kindly offered to sponsor 'SIBOL'. I'm so pleased that they think our project worthwhile, and I do hope you will click on the link and have a look at their gorgeous yarns they have for sale. The company is called 'Addicted2Knitting' and their Logo is on the side bar. They are based in the UK. So thank you very much I am so grateful.
I've been very busy this morning I have had lots of Squares come in. I would like to share them with you.
First of all I will show you my 'silly attempt' at a Royal Wedding Square!
Laura from the Netherlands has sent me some Royal Wedding Squares this morning along with other beautiful Squares which are in her Slide Show I do hope you will sit back and have a look at them. They are all lovely.
Gorgeous Squares Laura, thank you!
Next we have Gail from the UK! Gail has made some Squares in my favourite colours. They are really nice and I'm so pleased you are enjoying SIBOL!
I just love Grannies! Beautiful colour combinations, thank you Gail!
Next we have Jean Nock (UK)
Such beautiful Squares, and what wonderful colours! Thank you so much. Here's your own Slide Show enjoy!
I would also like to show you some Squares from the Netherlands.
ATheeC (Flickr) Tinka, has sent SIBOL some Squares from herself and her Daughter Annelinde.
Let's have a look firstly at Annelindes. Annelinde started Crocheting a short while ago after watching her Mother crochet. Tinka showed her Daughter and I'm very pleased that she contributes regularly now to SIBOL. It's so nice to see the youngsters start new crafts. Apart from the Crocheted Squares Annelinde has started Knitting too! So she has sent one of her Knitted Squares as well. Wonderful Squares Anneline.
Well done Annelinde!
Then we have Tinka's Squares. Tinka has made some great Squares for our Royal Wedding Challenge. So beautiful.
I'm sure you will agree that the other Squares are beautiful too! Thank you so much!
If you want to have a go at the remaining SIBOL Challenges please pop over to our other web site.
If you would like to have a go at the Royal Wedding Challenge there is still time. I'm asking that the Squares be delivered to me by March 18th if at all possible. Would you like inspiration? Take a look at this mosaic I have put together. I'm sure you can come up with other ideas too! Have fun with us and join in.
I do hope you have enjoyed looking at all these marvellous Squares today whether they are in the Royal Wedding Challenge or ones that have been delivered today! They are all superb!
Thanks for making SIBOL so....successful everyone! It's so nice we are all working hard for the Elderly but also we are having fun in our on-line Crocheting and Knitting Group. So nice to be recognised in one of the top Crocheting magazines and I just can't thank you all enough!
Have a great weekend, and I think I deserve a cup of tea now after all this loading up!

P.S. Nearly forgot I have finished 'Circle of Friends' now. I will be doing my Ta - Dah on Monday there is a lot to look at in this post. It's come out quite nicely I think although I did have to un-pick three times! I just couldn't seem to get the Squares how I wanted them. They look so different once they are assembled.
I'm really going this time....Bye!!!!
