Four Ta - Dah's for you!

Good Evening Everyone!

Thank you so much for visiting 'SIBOL' this evening. 

I have four new Ta - Dah's for you and I am so happy to be showing you.  Three of them have been made by myself and the fourth by jean nock.

Now the three Blankets I have finished are from Squares which have been donated by Glynis. Glynis is the Daughter of Alice. Alice is in one of the Homes I visit. I am very grateful to Glynis because she sent me enough Squares to make up three Blankets and I still have some left over.  Such a variety of Squares, beautiful colours, and great patterns.  I have to say I have been workng my socks off to get these three Blankets finished in time for the deliveries.  I am so pleased they are finished. I think these three Blankets and the one from jean nock which she kindly made up will now be the last Blankets made before my deliveries.  I am running out of room now. I have five boxes stacked up in my bedroom full of beautiful, beautiful Blankets and what did Mr. Twins do the other day? Knocked the whole lot flying! Our bedroom is rather like a storage area. I think I shall have to deliver sooner next time. Anyway I sorted the Blankets out and really they are ready for the off apart from now doing a few more cards for the latest Blankets. But on the whole I am ready to go. .......Time allowing. 

Oh, let's have a look at these Blankets shall we?

Thank you so much Glynis for the beautiful Squares. I have had enough for three Blankets and still have some left over. Here they are.


Thank you Glynis for all of these amazing Squares!


25 beautiful Squares from Glynis!


Glynis contributed enough Squares for three Blankets. This is the first. Thank you so much!

Pretty aren't they?

SIBOL 114 has been assembled by jean nock who often helps me out. I am very grateful to you. I would also like to thank everyone who has contributed Squares for this Blanket also!

Thanks to everyone that contributed Squares for this Blanket. Thank you too jean nock for assembling it for me! 'Please add note' if you see your Square!

jean nock has made a lovely job of this Blanket, it really is quite pretty.  When Squares arrive at my home. I bag them up into colour groups. When I have enough we make the Blanket up. I think the variety of Squares in this Blanket look really good together and I love the border than jean nock has crocheted up.

I have made a Slide Show now showcasing our four new SIBOL's.

Created with flickr slideshow.

Thanks to everyone these Blankets are amazing! I love them.

If you have enjoyed looking at the Squares and indeed the Blankets on this Blog and you think our Blog is worthy of a nomination for 'Favourite Craft Blog 2011' which Inside Crochet are holding then 'please' nominate 'SIBOL'.  There is a link over on the right hand side of the Blog.  Our 'SIBOLETTES' work extremely hard all year round making the most gorgeous Squares for our Blankets, and it would be so nice to be recognised! It is so nice to be able to showcase the Squares and the Blankets in our SIBOL Blog! What a crafty bunch of Ladies we have all over the World! Thank you!

Have a great weekend everyone!
