Squares from Spain and Belgium!

Good afternoon Everyone!

I'm very pleased to be showing you three lots of Squares which have arrived today.

The first set from 'Sandra' in Belgium. I'm very pleased to say Sandra has been making Squares for our Challenges and I'm sure you will agree they are gorgeous.  Squares for the 'Two Tone Blue', 'Cup Cake' and 'Grow me a Garden'. Would you like to see?  Let's have a look at the Cupcake Square first. Please visit her blog

Beautiful Square for our 'Cup Cake' Challenge.

You will see the others in the Slide Show I have made for Sandra.

Pretty aren't they? Thank you Sandra.

Next we have Squares from Alhana and her Mother in Spain.  I'm really so grateful to you for these Squares. Yes I agree they will be perfect for the Men's Blankets. I just love these colours reminding me of Autumn, which will be approaching very soon!  It's very nice of you both to think of SIBOL!

Great patterns and colours.

Alhana and your Mother, I have made you a Slide Show, enjoy your Squares and thank you so much!

Thirdly, we have Merchy from Spain.  Merchy has very kindly sent her Jan Eaton Block which is Number 54 'Framed Flower'.  This is just so pretty with the colour combination used. I love it. I had to go outside and put it amongst my Flowers. Thank you also for the Ribbon and yarn Merchy, it will be so useful for the Blankets.
