Squares from Singapore and the USA!

Good Evening everyone!

I do apologise, I am late writing my post today. I have been out with my Daughter today and this is the first chance I've had to update the blog.

I am very pleased to tell you that I have received Squares from arien 156 (Singapore) and Debi Y (USA).

First of all let's have a look at the Squares from arien 156.

Jan Eaton Squares are always popular and for our special Jan Eaton Challenge I have received 'Nine Patch Granny'. No. 61 out of the Jan Eaton book from arien 156.  This is so pretty with the colours chosen, I'm sure you will agree. Also a lovely 'Two tone blue' Square and guess what a 'Watermelon Square' which is fantastic, just take a look!

I'm very grateful arien 156! They are so pretty!

I love your Squares arien 156, now I have made you a Slide Show!


Thank you for taking part in our SIBOL Challenges and for all the work you do on our SIBOL Rav Group!
Very much appreciated!

Now we will look at Debi's Squares from Crochet, Crafts & Gardening.  I will give you a link to the pattern used in these Squares because they are so pretty.

Debi has very kindly written some details down for us about the yarn too which is very kind, thank you!

The pattern  is  Debi's 'Squircle V2'.

Let's have a look at them.

Debi Y (USA) Your Squares arrived today! Thank you!

The green, brown, blue & white Squares are crocheted with Red Heart Super Saver in 'peruvian print'.

The orange, green, pink &  purple squares are crocheted with Red Heart Stripes in 'cancun stripe'.

The blueish greenish squares were made in Premier Deborah Norville Everyday Soft and the colour is Lagoon.

They are made in gorgeous yarn and I think my favourite is the orange variegated yarn. I just love all the colours in this one. The squares are so pretty, thank you Debi!

I have made you a Slide Show!

Thanks to both of you for the gorgeous Squares!
Until next time, bye.....
