Squares from the UK!

Good Morning Everyone!

Well I do hope you all had a nice long weekend, back to normal today!

I'm very pleased to be showing you some Squares that have come in from the UK.  Two sets in actual fact, the first coming from Coxabey (UK)  on RAV.  They are the most beautiful Squares, I just love the yarn and the patterns are gorgeous!  I'm sure you will love them. Coxabey has also sent in her Jan Eaton Square.  This is Number 68 and it's called 'Red, White and Blue 67'.  The Jan Eaton Squares have started arriving now and it's a pleasure to receive all of them.

Here's Jan Eaton 68 'Red, White and Blue 67'. Coxabey I have made you a Slide Show, sit back and enjoy and thank you so much!

Jan Eaton No. 68 'Red, White & Blue 67' Thank you so much for all the wonderful Squares I love them all!

The other set of Squares have come in from Lotti02 (RAV)  (UK). Lottie02 has been busy making some Squares for the two Challenges which have just ended these being the Farm and Spring Challenge.  She has made a brilliant job of all of them and I'm absolutely over the moon with these Squares also. My favourite of course is this little fella! You know I love piggies! She has also sent in some extra Squares too which will be great to use in our Blankets. Thank you so much Lotti02! I really appreciate your Squares. 

My favourite a cute piggie!

A Slide Show for you Lotti02! Thank you!

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at these Squares today! I've had fun making the Slide Shows and showing you all!  Thanks to everyone that has sent in Squares for the Farm and Spring Challenges I will be starting on them shortly.  I'm just doing the 'two tone' Challenges at the moment.

I expect it will be a quieter this week for us, what a lot of excitement last week.  I'm off shopping now....

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today, it's a pleasure to chat with you today!
