A lot of SIBOL work today! Squares from the Netherlands and Uk!

Good morning Everyone!

~Wow!! A busy morning today here.  I've had lots of Squares arrive together today. Isn't it funny, none for a few days and then suddenly four parcels!

First of all I hopefully will have lots more time to take photos next week of three Blankets which I have finished. One of my 'Little Miss Twins' has been on holiday for two weeks as I have said before and we've been out and about, so not too much time to chat lately. So I suppose it's good they have arrived today! We've had such  a lovely time going here and there. .....

Well what's new on the SIBOL front?  Today I have had lots of Squares arrive. I would like to show you them.

First of all I would like to show you Squares from mandas' challenges.  Various challenges are going on at the moment. If you click on the link you will see what they are. I'm really pleased to show you Squares which have been sent in by Amanda. They are such fun!

Amanda has taken part in our 'Grow me a Garden', 'Tropical', 'Water melon', 'Cupcake', 'Olympics' and she's also been playing with Debi's Square! Well done Amanda, your Squares are fantastic. Let's have a look now.

Such pretty 'Cupcake' Squares.

Aren't these Cupcake Squares pretty!  I have  made you a Slide Show, sit back and enjoy now after your hard work. Thank you so much for taking part! What fun!

Next we have Richtje (Netherlands). Richtje thank you for the gorgeous Squares. I love them all.
It's so nice of you to make the Squares and I would like to show you the 'Two Tone Blue' ones first.

Yes they are for the 'Two Tone Blue' Challenge. Thanks so much Richtje!

So pretty for our Two Tone Blue Challenge. Let's have a look at the other ones now in your very own Slide Show! Thank you so much!

I would also like to thank Laura for the donation of Green yarn she had spare. She recently made her Mother a beautiful Green jacket with this yarn. She had some spare and thought of SIBOL, that was so kind, thank you!

What fun! I couldn't resist. You see they are not ordinary balls of yarn! What fun I have with this web site!

Now the last Squares have come in from the UK.  Jean Nock has sent in many Squares over the months for SIBOL, and I am always most grateful. These are  Black and White Squares and they are made beautifully! Now just take a look!

Such pretty Black and White Squares!

Let's see which Slide Show I have chosen  for Jean Nock!

I hope you enjoyed the Slide Show 'Jean Nock!'.  It was a pleasure to make it for you.

Phew! That was a lot of Squares.  Next week as soon as I have got myself up to date with my housework, I will be taking photos of the new Blankets. Thank you for being patient!

Our 'Tropical' theme ends tomorrow. Don't worry if they are a little late arriving! They will be okay. There are still Challenges running if you want to take part.

May I say thank you tol the Ladies I have been chatting to over the last few days. It's always nice to talk 'SIBOL'  with you. From time to time I like to discuss things with you. Just puts my mind at rest you are enjoying SIBOL, and that everything is running as it should be.  Thank you.

Well Mr. Twins is out with the mower, I've been on here all morning so now I must go and tidy my flower beds up. I then have a wacky scarf to finish for a friend of Little Miss Twins and then it's on to another Blanket. All go here at SIBOL HQ! :)

Have a good weekend everyone!
