Pretty Squares from the USA!

Hello Everyone!

I am so behind today with my blogging and I apologise. My Husband decided to put Internet Explorer 9 on, and for some reason or another it didn't like Flickr and it certainly didn't like Blogland. For hours we have been trying to sort it out this end. Then I am rubbish at passwords. How many times do you say to yourself ooh I must write them down. But do I?  Well I have learnt my lesson and now I have them down. So I've got Yahoo sorted and I've now got Google sorted. Why so many? 

Anyway without further ado. Today I received pretty Squares all the way from GA (USA). I presume that is Georgia? From Kay. 

I did try to take photos outside around Lunchtime when I came back from the hairdressers but it was so hot outside and it was so.....bright I had to leave it until tea time. I kept getting lots of shadow and this certainly wouldn't have done the photos any good.

Kay has been working very hard for our Challenges and she has sent in such lovely Squares. When you have a look at these Squares you will see they are Grannies but with a difference.  They are all in such wonderful colour combinations.  My Mom would just love this Purple and Green Square.  These two colour combinations are my Mom's favourite colours. 

I love these colour combinations. Thank you so much for the gorgeous Squares Kay!

The Square has a pretty Flower in the centre, for our Flower collection and the other one has a cute Butterfly for 'Grow me a Garden' Challenge. What  fantastic ideas! I love them. The Tropical  Square is gorgeous too, ideal colours.

'Flower Square' - Beautiful Purple, Lilac and Green!

'Tropical Theme' I love this Square!

Spot the Butterfly on this gorgeous Granny!

 I'm sure you love these Squares as much as I do. I am so grateful to you Kay.  I have just tried to make a Slide Show for you, but no it doesn't want to work.  My Husband will have to have another go tomorrow.
I apologise.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments yesterday on my visit to St. Bernards. I am so pleased you popped over to have a look at the photographs. The first thing I ask when I visit a Home is 'May I take some photographs please? I feel an obligation to you all, to show you where the Sunshine Blankets  have found their new home.

Thanks once again Kay, I love your Squares and thank you so much for visiting SIBOL today!


  1. You have made me so happy by showing these squares with your beautiful flowers!! Yes, I am Kay from Georgia (USA) but I have ties to England as my husband is English and my dear sweet inlaws live in Eastbourne. Hope you are enjoying one of those beautiful English springs. (One of my fave things about England are the flowers!!) Hope to be able to send you some more squares soon. Thanks again.

  2. Nice ....beautiful squares.
