Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 98!

Good Morning Everyone!

I am extremely happy to be showing you our 98th SIBOL! Only two more to go and we will have reached our 100th Blanket.

I am sure you will agree this Blanket is gorgeous. The Squares have been assembled by baw1812 over on Ravelry. ‘Beverley’ is the Lady who kindly put this Blanket together for us. She has been helping me assemble while I’ve been making some of the Challenge Blankets up. I am extremely grateful to her and I think she really has enjoyed the process.

This special Blanket has been called 'Wishes for Wiggles'.

To the Ladies who have contributed towards this Blanket I am so.....grateful to you. I know that each Square has been lovingly made and sent to Beverley. She has enjoyed receiving each Square and she’s been on a ‘high’ ever since she started this particular project!

The Squares have all been made with two particular colours in mind....Purple and Green. I thought Flower Squares for this project and it was so nice my end to see the Squares arrive at Bev’s house and be posted on to Ravelry. The patterns for each Square have been so pretty, I am so terribly proud of you all Ladies!

Beverley had the idea to put three Squares on to the Pillow case, they look great and finish it off nicely. Thank you Bev. You’ve worked so hard with this Blanket and I just want you to know that your friends ‘fellow SIBOLETTES’ think the Blanket is ‘BEAUTIFUL!’.

If you would like to read more please visit Ravelry

  1. I love this one and think the color choices are brillant. You must be please to have someone close by to help stitch these together for you. You have done such an amazing job with each and every one. So much loven'. Someone just popped by my garden and said you mentioned the G.B., thanks for the linkie. I can't seem to find that posting. But, it could be that I'm still up in the woods of Michigan on a laptop. I don't know how you have done all this on a laptop either. I can't wait to get home to my normal big monitor and keyboard. Having a great vaca, but we think we like Wisconsin a little better. Maybe, that's because it F.R.E.E. at my brother's house. Seriously, the towns are closer and a lot more fun shopping and artist areas to scout out. Hope this comment works, I've been having a terrible time with this.

  2. Yes, I agree, this is a WONDERFUL blanket with great colours!!!!

  3. Very well done, Bev - the blanket looks fabulous. I only hope that my own offering can look even half as good as this! :)
