Friday evening, weekend arriving! Anything nice planned?
Today I had beautiful 'Flower Squares' come in from Elke in Austria. I am sure you will agree they are so....pretty. It just shows you how adaptable a Granny Square can be! The pretty little Flower in the Centre is just marvellous.
Aren't they just lovely? Thank you so much Elke, I really appreciate your help. The Squares are just wonderful. I can't wait to use them in the Flower Blanket.
You must of heard about our 'Flower Square' Challenge. Now it ends on 31st May, not that long in fact. You still have time to make a Square. It can be any sort of 'Flower Square' pattern there are loads on the internet and in the side bar there is a video link that Luna posted. We're having such fun making the Squares for the different Challenges. Of course as I have said many times before you certainly don't have to take part in the Challenges. The Challenges are just there for us to get ideas. It's only the Challenges that have deadlines. I still need Squares and there's no hurry for those, anytime!
What a nice thing to do this weekend! Make a 'Flower Square!'. You should know by now that I have made 10 SIBOL Blankets for the Elderly. Work that out 10 Blankets x 25 Squares in each = '250' I have used already. I have over 300 left ready to be made in to Blankets. All the Blankets will be donated to Nursing Homes around November just in time for Christmas. It may seem like a daunting task, but I love making the Blankets and I really couldn't do it without your help. I thank you all so much for your support.
It's also very nice for me to get to know you all.
I do hope you will read previous posts too. It's always nice to see Squares that have come in. I hope you go back and read Kim's post and I thank her very much for helping me in my project.
I hope you all have a good weekend. Thank you all for following me. If there is any questions about SIBOL please do not hesitate to mail me. email@example.com
Bye for now Sue x
I'm so pleased to show you Sally's Squares 'Chunky Hooker'. She's very kindly taking part in our 'Flower Square' Challenge and once again it's the traditional Granny Square we have here 'with a twist!. She's added Flowers once again like Elke, but on three of the Squares there are three tiny little Flowers. So once again, something different. Could you let us know where you got the pattern from Sally? It would be nice to know where Elke got hers from too?
So over the last two days we've had some gorgeous Granny Squares come in with Flower designs. Why not have a go? Our Challenge ends 31st May all are most welcome to join in. But as I've said many times before you don't have to do the Challenges.
I'm off to help Mr. Twin in the garden now, let's see if there are any 'real flowers' in my Garden.......
Good Weekend everyone and many thanks to Elke and Sally.
Your Squares are in the Slide Show.
