I really would love everyone to go back a post and have a look at this wonderful blanket made by 'creativegranny' (RAV). It has been made in Granny squares and I think it is just so pretty! This blanket arrived on Friday 13th!
It was sitting in my porch when I arrived back from Tesco. I was loaded up with that dreadful 'weekly shopping!'. I just couldn't wait to put my shopping away to see what was inside. On opening I found such a gorgeous blanket. Thank you once again 'creativegranny'. The blanket is stunning and it was so nice to chat to you on email!
But.......the excitement didn't stop there because around 3.00pm a courier pulled up just as my Daughter was leaving. I had been helping her wash her car and after giving her a little treat of a few grocery items to take back with her to her flat I was in desperate need of a cup of tea, but no......I had to see what was inside the box the Courier had delivered! It had travelled all the way from the Netherlands one of our 'SIBOLETTES' dear 'Wilfi' over on RAV. Fiona had very kindly sent me squares for our Challenges and also 'three' donated blankets for SIBOL! Yes 3! Wow!
Fiona has made squares for our Nursery Rhyme Challenge, Owl Challenge and Emmerdale 'special' blanket, also enclosing two Butterflies for the Emmerdale blanket. A 'soap gift' was also enclosed in the colours of blue and white. The smell of the soap is just lovely! Very kind of you Fiona thank you.
This blanket is called 'Isabelle's Rainbow' named after Fiona's Daughter 'Isabelle'. It did start it's life as a baby blanket for her Daughter who is now 11 years of age but Fiona has decided that after a long time of squares sitting around in a bag she would make a blanket for 'SIBOL'. I am so pleased you have done Fiona, the blanket is gorgeous. What beautiful colours! Your work is lovely.
This is the third and final blanket that Fiona has sent me today. This one is called 'Queensday'. The blanket has been made in the colours of her country. In Holland they have 30th April as 'Queensday' when everyone is full of fun and happiness!
What a beautiful blanket Fiona!
I would now like you to have a look at Fiona's work in a Slide show!
I think that's about all for today!
Bye for now!
