Good Afternoon Everyone!
I am very pleased to be showing you these gorgeous Squares that have come in from Anne (UK). Anne has made a really nice 'Wiggles' Square in beautiful colours and also a 'One Heart From Around The World' Square.
Let's have a look at the 'Wiggles' Square first. We did say use any colour for this Challenge and Anne has put together great colour combinations in this one.
What could be better than these three colours! Lilac, pink and white, 'my favourites'. I absolutely love the Squares that have been coming in for this Challenge and I am very grateful to Debi Y over in the States for submitting this Square. If you would like to have a go at these Squares then please pop over to SIBOL CHALLENGES for details.
The other Square that Anne has made is the Heart Square. This is for the 'One Heart From Around The World' Challenge. With thanks to Luna over in the States, this too is a very succesful Challenge. All details are once again over on SIBOL CHALLENGES!
Thank you to Anne for making a great job of these Squares
I am very happy to be telling you that the last Landscape Square is on it's way to me from jenniferanne in SCOTLAND. I have assembled all the other Squares for this Blanket and I'm now going to give you a sneaky view!
You can't see much I know that was the intention! :)
I have also started working on the Olympic Squares. Our Challenge for Olympic Squares ends at the very end of March, but I have started edging each Square with a row of double crochet ready for assembling together. I have had over 100 Squares already and I am due to receive another 100 from our very good SIBOLETTE 'akarapacha' over in the States. I'm trying to give myself a head start with this Challenge because we are due to decorate the house from top to bottom March time, and I want to be sure I've got enough time to complete this Blanket.
The Royal Wedding Blanket held 56 Squares, the Olympic one to date will be over 200. Question is..... Do we make one massive one or smaller one's? I did intend initially to make a 'ginormous' one. Your feedback would be appreciated.
Here's my W.I.P.!
My usual Elderly Blankets made by myself are on hold for a short while until I can get these Squares edged. My friend jean nock is very kindly helping me assemble our 'usuals' and for her help I am extremely grateful. Thank you jean nock!
Very soon I will be announcing our SIBOL EBAY AUCTION! I am so excited about this auction because we will be showcasing our 'Think Pink' Blanket which was assembled by dear Lotti over on RAV, and Squares were sent in by our SIBOLETTES all over the World. The Blanket is truly a beauty and if you would all like to put a note up on your blogs when you see it announced here on SIBOL I would be extremely grateful to you. All monies raised from the sale of this Blanket will go to 'Breast Cancer Care'. I am so excited! So please stay tuned, you won't have much longer to wait. It will be 'your' chance to get hold of an official 'SIBOL!' which will be so unique!
I think that's it for now, thanks very much for visiting my Blog today!
