Good Afternoon everyone!
I am very happy to be showing you some Challenge Squares that have arrived from Fiona in the Netherlands. These Squares are amazing! I love them.
Let's take a look at them.
First of all two beautiful Owl Squares. Aren't these cute? I love the big white eyes on the left Square. Love also the combination of colours on the one on the right too! Fiona you have made these so well.
Next we have a 'Freeform Square'. Would you like to take part in 'SIBOL's Freeform Challenge?' Please pop over to RAVELRY and see what we are up to over there. This is a really interesting Square made with various types of yarn. We are all beginners at Freeform on the 'SIBOL' Group so please don't feel shy, pop over and join us!
A very interesting Square Fiona, thank you for taking part.
Two great Squares for our 'Faces Challenge'! What wonderful ideas!
My Grandmother loved the colour of Navy and Fiona has very kindly made a Square for our 200th Blanket. I am just finishing off a blanket and I will be starting to put the Squares together very soon. We have had some great Squares in for this celebration Blanket. Thank you Fiona.
Fiona sent me a bumper parcel of Goodies for 'SIBOL'. Blankets, Butterflies, Squares, Hearts, Yarn, Owl charms and a wonderful selection of ribbons. How kind!
The Squares are superb Fiona and it was extremely kind of you to donate the above for our 'SIBOL' project.
I am now in the process of taking some photos of her Blankets. Three she made herself and one which was 'Take a Bag'. Fiona has made an excellent job of putting them altogther.
This one is called 'Carp Diem'. She made it on her holiday in France, just living an easy way of life, enjoying the sun, her family and nature.
This is made with odd bits and ends of yarn, just picking it of a bag.
This Blanket has been made so well, the Granny Squares are so interesting made with a variety of beautiful colours. Has Fiona inspired you to make a Blanket like this? Well I have plenty more of Fiona's Blankets to show you!
This is going to be a long................................post!
The next Blanket that Fiona very kindly made and donated to our 'SIBOL' project is called 'Colour Book'. Fiona used lots of odd bits of yarn that she had at home for this stunning Blanket. She made this Blanket like a book full of colour. She has a bag full of left over yarn which she cannot throw away so she made the Blanket for 'SIBOL'. She hopes it brings a lot of sunshine into an Elderly person's life.
Fiona I am positive it will. Fiona I know our 'SIBOL' project means a lot to you by the amount of Blankets you have made for us. I can never thank you enough.
I love the centre Granny Square in this Blanket with the smaller ones around it. You have used every colour in your box I can see. It surely is a stunning Blanket.
That one is called 'Colour Book'. I'm sure you will agree it's a gorgeous Blanket.
The final Blanket that Fiona made and 'donated' herself is called 'Ocean Wave'. She says, "It looks like the waves on the beach, different colours and texture you get from the Ocean." It certainly does have a Sea feel to it Fiona. Let's take a look now.
Can you see the beautiful Heart and Butterflies attached to this Blanket? I love the Hearts too Fiona, thank you for adding them.
Golly these are beautiful Blankets don't you think? I can't get over how quickly you have made them Fiona, thank you.
But it doesn't end there......Fiona very kindly offered to make up one of the 'Take a Bags!'. These Squares were sent to me and Fiona has very kindly assembled them for me. This one does not have a name as yet. But nevertheless it's another beautiful Blanket. I would like to thank everyone who sent in Squares for this particular 'SIBOL' Blanket.
Great colour combinations in this one they all go together so......well once again!
I told you it was lovely!
Fiona once again you have really made such a wonderful contribution to 'SIBOL'. I can never thank you enough for everything that you have enclosed in your parcel. The most important thing is that you are enjoying our 'SIBOL' Group. 'SIBOL' is somewhere where you can show your 'creative skills and also do some really worthwhile Charity work.
Thank you so much. I am sorry this was a long post but I did really want to put all Fiona's Blankets on to the same post today!
I have plenty to show you over the next few days. I have a pile of Blankets here which are new, so please pop in again!
Don't forget we are collecting Squares to make Blankets for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Do you want to make a 6" (15cms) Knitted or Crocheted Square with Daffodils as the theme? Make a Daffodil Square and send it to me we are hoping to send 9 Blankets to the 9 Marie Curie Cancer Care Hospices here in the UK.
I have a great tutorial from Debi over at Hooks & Yarn. She has very kindly written down the instructions for a beautiful Daffodil Square.
I also have a link over to Luna in the States she also has very kindly written us out a pattern for a Daffodil Square. Why not try the two links? Say hello to these two talented Ladies!
We need Daffodils, Daffodils and more Daffodils! Let's try and meet this wonderful Challenge.
If there are any questions about our Blankets please mail me.
