Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 89! 'Grow me a Garden!'.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 89! 'Grow me a Garden!'

Good Morning Everyone!

An extremely blowy day here in the UK today.

I am so happy to be showing you my latest SIBOL today.  This is the first of 'Grow me a Garden' Challenge. Now I have to say I am working on the second Tropical at the moment, but this Blanket has been in my work box for a few weeks now. It's taking me such a long time to finish the fringe off. I hope you
think it looks 'like grass!'.  It basically is a chain of 24 so easy to do, but golly it's taken a mission to complete.

The Squares I have received for this particular Blanket have been received from bonsall (UK) and Laura (Netherlands).  I decided to put the two lots of Squares together for this Blanket. Using the Green back ground of the Squares I thought they went quite nicely together. I do hope you like it.

I just love this one. I love all our 'Sunshine Blankets' we make, but this has got to be one of my favourites.

Thank you to bonsall and Laura for the most beautiful Squares. I just love the brightly coloured Flowers.

Now let's take a closer look.

'Thanks to bonsall (UK) and Laura (Netherlands) for the most beautiful Squares!

I couldn't resist laying it on the grass.

I have made a Slide Show now for our 'Sunshine Blanket' 89! So sit back and enjoy these beautiful Squares.

Well the Postman did arrive at lunchtime. I'm very happy to be showing you the Squares from bonsall now. bonsall has taken part in our 'Simple Squares'.  If you would like a pattern please email me, there are still spaces available.
