Good Evening Everyone!
FIRST OF ALL I CANNOT ACCEPT ANY EMAILS AT THE MOMENT SORRY.
I must thank you all for the wonderful comments jenniferanne has received over on Flickr and also here on SIBOL. 'Carols in the Cathedral' is such a remarkable Blanket. Each Square was so lovingly made by jenniferanne and such a lot of thought went into it. I'm sure she would like me to thank you all for the kind comments.
You probably know that we are in the process of collecting Squares for the second Snowman Blanket. The first made by mandas' challenges was such a great sucess and some Ladies didn't have chance to take part. So I offered to do a second. We still have spaces, so if you are interested please pop over to Ravelry and put your name down. Please follow the link.
That brings me to the Snowman Squares I received in the post today. One Snowman all the way from the States and the other here in the UK. Let's take a look at the 'American' Snowman.
A Lady over on Ravelry 'swfirefly' has very kindly sent me a Snowman Square. It has travelled all the way from Florida and I'm pleased to say it hasn't even melted! Amazing!
What a cute Snownan! I particularly like the Fringes on the Scarf and the pompom hat. His orange nose too is just great. I love to see these Snowmen come in because they are all so individual. He has been made beautifully. Thank you so much swfirefly. I am so pleased you enjoyed making him.
Secondly, the next Snowman has arrived here from the UK. A Lady over on RAV once again called 'Jessiebonbon'. Jessiebonbon not only sent a Snowman Square but also a pretty Square in icey blue I call it. I think this Square will be lovely in the Snowman Blanket too.
This Snowman too has a comical look on his face! A great big smile he's pleased to arrive at SIBOL HQ I think to meet all of his new friends. A great Scarf with blue fringes and once again a great nose!
Let's take a look at Jessiebonbons' Squares now!
I'm sure you noticed the SIBOL Butterfly too! Why not have a go? I'll give you the link. Our friend Nettie gives a great tutorial. She lives in Australia. Why not make some and send them to SIBOL!
It's so nice to receive your Squares swfirefly and Jessiebonbon. Thank you both so much! I'm pleased you enjoyed making them.
Well don't forget to check out our SIBOL Challenge Blog on 1st December for our new Challenges. I hope you find something that you will like to have a go at.
Bye for now
