Hi Everyone!

We are making a second 'Snowman Blanket' because the first one was just so popular. If you would like to take part, you will need to follow the link over to Ravelry and put your name down please.

I am very pleased to be showing you two Snowman Squares which have arrived today. The first is from Jenni over in Australia. Jenni has made a beautiful Snowflake Square. This really has come out lovely Jenni thank you so much and golly it took no time at all to arrive here at SIBOL HQ all the way from Australia.

Here it is....

Jenni (Australia). Your Snowman Square has arrived thank you!

The second Square is from BrendaS2 here in the UK. Brenda has made a cute Snowman with a lovely smiling face, a great hat and beautiful red Scarf! Reminds me so much of being at home when I was little making Snowman out in the garden! What fun I had with my brother. Lumps of coal for his buttons. So cute, thank you Brenda.

  1. I love the snowflake square and the jolly snowman square!
    What a great idea to place the snowman that way on the square to give him some room for his hat! Wish I had thought of it!
    Love, Kay

  2. Thank you Sue I really enjoyed making that one. If anyone wants to find the pattern just look up the Red Heart site and they have a tutorial on making a whole blanket of them :-)
