I'm very pleased to be showing you some great Squares which have arrived today from pippa-anne and bonsall both here in the UK.
pippa-anne has had a go at making a Square for our 'Irish Rose' Challenge. This indeed is a pretty Square but I have found out from a few Ladies now that it is a bit of a Challenge! I am sure jenniferanne over on RAVELRY will help you if you get stuck so please follow the link to her and say hello I'm sure she will be most willing to help you! If you would like to challenge yourself with this particular Square please email me for the Square instructions. Sue on firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's take a look at the Square pippa-anne has made now so well!
I think it has come out beautifully pippa-anne thanks so much for sending it to me. This is going to be a really pretty Blanket I'm sure.
The next set of Squares have come in from bonsall. bonsall has made some Flower Squares for 'SIBOL' and they really are lovely.
If you remember a while back we made a great Flower Blanket with similar Squares from bonsall. Let's take a look at that one. That was 'SIBOL' 88 and it was called 'Keep off the Grass!'. I loved this Blanket and I tried to make the border look like grass. It took me simply ages to do, but I think it came out quite well! Laura in the Netherlands made the Green Squares with the yellow Flowers in the centre which were lovely too!
I also received these Squares from bonsall today!
Just look at these pretty Squares, all so lovely. Very interesting indeed and the yarn is great!
I am very happy also to be showing you our latest Ta - Dah! jean nock has very kindly been helping me out assembling a Blanket and I am very grateful to her. The Squares came in from Germany 'Dolphin Sunshine' over on RAVELRY very kindly sent them along. She was kind enough to send me 50 Squares which have now all been made into two stunning Blankets.
This was the first Blanket jean nock assembled from 'Dolphin Sunshines' Squares........
and the second one SIBOL 131......
If you remember the article in 'Inside Crochet' a few weeks ago a photo of the Squares were shown at the bottom of the page! Nice to be famous 'Dolphin Sunshine!'
Here's your Slide Show for SIBOL 131 now!
Thank you so much for these gorgeous Squares, I love them all and I think the Blanket 'jean nock' has come out beautifully!
I would like to remind you that I am collecting 'your favourite Square' to send off to Inside Crochet. They are asking their readers to either send in their favourite Square to them or to send a photo. If you would like to take part please send me a Square 'your favourite' I would be most happy to send it on to them. I believe they are going to make a Blanket up. I am trying to collect 25 Squares but I have only had a few so far! For instructions please follow the link to RAVELRY.
I do hope you have enjoyed looking at SIBOL 131 and also the gorgeous Squares from pippa-anne and bonsall. I am very grateful to both of you and of course to 'Dolphin Sunshine' for the Squares for these two superb Blankets!
Have a good weekend everyone!
