I am very pleased to be showing you some Challenge Squares which have arrived.
First of all I would like you to see the 'Chinese Flag' for our Olympic Challenge. This is beautifully made by Stricksusi of Austria. She has also sent in some beautiful Butterflies for the SIBOL Butterfly Stash!.
This is a gorgeous Square and I will certainly put it in with our Olympic Squares. If you would like to join in the fun with the special Olympic Blanket please visit our SIBOL Challenge Blog.
Great thank you very much Stricksusi!
The next set of Squares have arrived from Fiona in the Netherlands.
Fiona has made some Squares for 'One Heart From Around the World' Challenge, and also a pretty Landscape one.
I would like to show you now the Square for 'Your Local Landscape' Challenge and I will let you read what she wrote.
Fiona says, "The Landscape Challenge is my local beach/sea. I live almost 5 minutes away from the sea. I go to have a walk and clear my mind in the summer. It's a great place to sunbathe and see the boats on the sea."
"The challenge square for the landshape i made 3d you can feel the
seabubbling on the sand i embroidered the seabubbling .
here on the seaside you have alot of waving and you can see then
the white colour of the sea."
Thank you for describing your Square Fiona. This is very useful.
This is a pretty Square once again full of detail. The Sand is so lovely with the yarn she has used. I love the boat and the sky with the white cloud. I love everything about this Square.
Why not join us to complete this Challenge. I need lots more Squares please, 'if you have time'. If you would like to make more than one please do. This Blanket is going to be sent off to Jersey to take part in the Jersey Textile Showcase 2012. The Blanket is going to be put on Exhibition and then sold to raise money for Jersey Mencap. I have been promised photographs and also the Organiser Pat will tell me how much the Blanket raised.
All details are over on SIBOL Challenges.
Fiona also very kindly sent Butterflies in to me for our SIBOL Butterfly Stash and also some Squares for our SIBOL Square Stash.
Here's Fionas' Slide Show, sit back now and have a look at her other Squares! Many thanks Fiona.
I am very pleased to be telling you that Knit Today have contacted me today and they tell me 'our club' will be featured March 15th Issue 71. So that's fabulous news!
Also there will be a write up in Inside Crochet this time next month!
So it's all good!
Thanks Fiona and Stricksusi for the beautiful Squares and Butterflies.
