No Squares today............but

Hello Everyone!

Of course I can't have deliveries of Squares 'everyday' now can I? So when I am not posting photos of new Squares onto Flickr and the web site, I spend my time making Blankets up and sewing those dreadful ends in. I say 'dreadful' actually I have quite enjoyed my day sewing in the ends with a nice cup of hot chocolate and listening to Steve Wright with all of his oldies playing on the radio. I have to admit I don't very often have Steve Wright on I have Classical FM radio on, but today was a sing a long day and what could be better while  I have been doing this!

As for the Ta - Dah! Well I'm sorry you will have to wait a while for that. I'm in the teasing mood!

I would love to thank everyone for their donations of Olympic Squares. As I crochet them together I admire the beautiful work of many talented Ladies from all over the World, so from me to you 'A Big Thank You!' and let's hope our Olympic Blanket will raise some money for Alzheimers here in the UK.

I say Blanket there will be more than one Blanket. I am doing four Blankets because I have so...many Squares. The first will be a mixture the one you can see on the table. There will be a 100 Flag Olympic Blanket, a 49 Knitted Red, Blue and White Blanket and a 25 6" Square Red, Blue and White Blanket. They are all assembled but I still have quite a way to go, I have the ends to finish and I also have to do the Borders......So Steve Wright I will listen to you again another afternoon! You're really helping me get through these ends!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' and here's a crafty look at the first Olympic Blanket. All proceeds will be going to the  Alzheimers Society here in the UK.

Bye for now and thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!


  1. The blanket looks great Sue - and I love your work area - it looks like a lovely place to be. :)

  2. I love the Rainbow blanket you've headlined today, it is simply delicious! Can't wait to see the Olympic blankets when you reveal them.

  3. olympic blanket is looking good from that sneaky peek you gave us. Really looking forward to seeing all three....I am sure they will all look totally different.

  4. oops sorry you said you're doing 4 not three!

  5. wonderful rainbow blanket and I like that there is a lot of white in it. Most are in blacks...really going to be pretty.

  6. I also love where you work on the blankets. What a beautiful room! These blankets will be stunning, I can't wait to see them!
