Thanks so much for visiting 'SIBOL' once again today!
I am very happy to be showing you some Challenge Squares that have arrived from Debi in the States and also Corien (Richtje) in the Netherlands. I am very grateful to both of you for sending in Squares for our Challenges.
Debi has very kindly sent her very own 'Wiggles' Square. I do hope you will pop over to her Blog and say hello! Her Crocheting is just wonderful and her posts are so interesting! Debi has made the 'Wiggles' Square in two shades of pink. The Square is so pretty I love it. The Squares that are coming in for this particular Challenge are just so pretty and it is nice to see what colours you are using. If you would like to have a go then please do so. Details are over on SIBOL CHALLENGES.
It really is a gorgeous Square thank you Debi!
The other Squares have arrived from Corien in the Netherlands. Corien has taken our Challenges on board and she too has made some wonderful Squares. A lovely Jan Eaton Block No. 98 'Old Vienna', Wiggles Square, Knit Today Squares, Luna's Flower Square and also Squares for our SIBOL stash.
Such lovely Squares in very nice colour combinations. Let's take a look now.
Let's have a look now more closely in your Slide Show!
I do hope you have enjoyed looking at the Squares today, they really are lovely.
I am desperate to get in more Squares as soon as possible for our 'Your Local Landscape' Challenge. The idea is to make a Knitted or Crocheted Square with a view in mind. What would you see from your Window? We have had some great ideas come in already would you like to see some of the Squares?
These are the 'Your Local Landscape' Squares which have already come in for this special Charity Challenge for Mencap. Do you get the idea now? Do you think you could make a Square for this Challenge? All details are over on SIBOL CHALLENGES. I really would like to get the 25 Squares to enable me to make this Blanket. I am rather pushed for time too. I will need to get the Squares in as soon as possible as I have to make the Blanket and send it off to Jersey.
This Blanket if successful will be sent off to the Jersey Textile Showcase March 2012. It will be on exhibit and the organiser Pat has promised me photographs. When the event is over the Blanket along with other items will be sold and all money will be given to a worthy cause Mencap. I won't be able to go myself, I have never ever flown! Quite terrified at the thought too but as I say photographs have been promised by Pat.
I do hope these Squares have inspired you to have a go! I really would welcome your Squares!
Thanks so much Debi and Corien, and thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today.
