Squares from Scotland and my last Ta - Dah! before Christmas! (I think!).

Good Evening  Everyone!

I have had some great Squares arrive today from jenniferanne who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.  She has very kindly made Jan Eaton Block 78 'Briar Rose' which is lovely! A pretty Square for you to try if you have the Jan Eaton 200 Blocks Book and also a Square for the  'Your Local Landscape' Challenge.

Let's take a look at the Squares now.

Here's the Jan Eaton 78 'Briar Rose' Square. Worked out beautifully I think. Love the colours.

Jan Eaton Block Number 78 'Briar Rose'

jenniferannes' Square for the 'Your Local Landscape' is just so......nice. Let's take a look at it and then I will tell you all about it. She has described it in fine detail which is lovely and so interesting!

'Your Local Landscape' Challenge.

What does jenniferanne see from her Kitchen Window?

Her hedge, the field, a row of trees, the runway of Edinburgh Airport to the hills of Fife. Occasionally she sees the Red Arrows come in to refuel on their way to the East Fortune Air Show so she has also added them! The grass in the fields is very dry at this time of year and the hedge is bear of leaves.

jenniferanne is certainly very lucky to see this view every day.Wow! What a detailed Square and description.

Why not have a go yourself? What do you see from your Window?
This is an interesting Challenge.
All details are over on SIBOL CHALLENGES.

Thank you so....much jenniferanne, I love all of the Challenge Squares.

Now I have my last Ta - Dah of 2011. (I think!)
I would like to thank everyone that has contributed Squares for this particular Blanket.

Thanks to the Ladies that have contributed Squares for this Challenge.

A lovely variety of Squares and a lot of them have come over from the States.
