I had so much fun making the Royal Wedding Blanket and then helping raise money for Prince William and Kate Middletons Charity Gift Fund. I was wondering if we could take on another big project.
Racking my brains for a few weeks now. Then this morning while watching the BBC News when they were talking about the Olympic torch being carried throughout the UK. I thought wouldn’t it be nice to make a large Blanket once again, collecting Squares from all over the World to celebrate the ‘Olympics’ in London 2012. Then auctioning it next year on EBAY and proceeds going to a Charity.
Now I’m putting this idea out to you in Blogland to see what you think.
I have a few Charities in mind, but of course I am open to your ideas. I would prefer UK Charities.
The main thing at the moment I am asking is…..
Do you think an ‘Olympics London 2012’ Blanket is a good idea?
I would welcome your thoughts.
It isn’t until next year, but I thought we could start collecting Squares.
Ideas for Squares would be for instance…..
Flags of Different countries. (Then perhaps I can use manda's challenges 'Union Jacks!' :)
Squares depicting different sports.
Olympic Torches, Olympic Symbol as shown.
You would have to use your imagination again, but for us SIBOLETTES, that’s not hard is it?
Would you like to post a comment? Thank you.
I have had some Squares come in this morning from Sonieta in Spain. Sonieta has sent two gorgeous Squares which are the 'Circle of Friends' pattern. I love the colours on both of them, I think my favourite is the pink and green one. I think these two colours go really well together! Thanks so much for sending the Squares Sonieta! They are very much appreciated!
Bye for now
