Thanks for popping in to SIBOL this evening.
Mr. Twins is on holiday this week and we have been out and about and I'm sorry I'm a little late showing you our 'SIBOL' goodies!
First of all I received a square from beang over on RAV. I am very very grateful for a square for our 200th blanket. I will have to do a count to see how many more I need. This square once again is just so ideal for my Grandmother's blanket. She lived to the fine age of 103, and beang has very kindly crocheted the numbers '103'. Isn't it good? I love it. The colours are just right too. Many thanks beang. We are taking inspiration from my Grandmother.
I also received a square from Kianie over on RAV for our 'Musical Challenge'. Kianie has crocheted a superb musical note. It really is wonderful and I know it's going to look so good in our blanket for the 'Music Challenge'. Thank you very much Kianie.
baw1812 (Bev) over on RAV has very kindly helped me assemble a bag of squares. I received the blanket back yesterday and I am very late showing you the finished blanket. I do apologise.
When the squares arrive at my home, I colour co-ordinate them. So I put all the blues together, greens together etc., These grey squares were no different. They were put together and when Bev offered to make a bag up I sent them along to her. Sometimes you wonder what they will look like made up, and it is quite a challenge in itself. But as in Bev's case she added a few colours here and there and look what she has conjured up! Yes she has waved that magic wand of hers and turned 25 grey squares in to 'Silver Lady!'. Another stunning blanket.
'SIBOL' is a place where we can share our 'creativity' and assembling our blankets is no different from making squares for a challenge. We all have to put our thinking caps on and wonder what we can end up with! I'm sure you will agree Bev has made a beautiful job of this blanket. I do hope my photos show it off to it's best.
Can you see the different colours between the squares? I think this is a really good idea, I love it. I'm very grateful to you for making this one up Bev and I love the border too. If you would like to read more please pop over to baw1812 on RAV.
I've tried to take quite a few photos let's have a look at them now!
