Thanks for all your comments on the previous two posts!
I'm really happy to be showing you SIBOL No. 32! On Saturday morning I started edging 25 Squares. The ones I had waiting in a pile for the 'Sea/Seaside' Challenge. Such pretty little Squares all with something wonderful in common. 'The Sea or the Seaside!'.. Well I asked you to use your imagination and once again
you all never fail me. The Squares that came in were 'few' compared to other Challenges, but it was actually nice for a change. I needed something quick to do after the '7' Blue and White Blankets.
I have to say at this point I should have really done the 'Strawberry and Cream' Challenge. But as it was getting near Bonfire Night November 5th I thought I would sort those two piles out. But then after careful consideration I thought no I only have one pile of Sea/Seaside Squares, let's do that one first. So as I was saying...... on Saturday morning I started edging them. Just a couple of rows of double crochet, getting them all the same size. I think there were a couple that needed 'extra padding'. ha.ha. Then by Sunday evening the Blanket was finished 'dun and dusted' you might say. I've had the family here and even Little Miss Twins boyfriend has passed a comment or two! I had to laugh when I found a little sticker on the back of his shoe. My stickers get everywhere!
What fun I've had once again putting your Squares together. This is the 32nd Blanket with 25 Squares in each. Anyone good at Maths? Have you got your Calculator handy? I'll do it for you 32 x 25 = 800 Squares. Only 200 more for the big Ta - Dah!
Are you sitting comfortably? Here goes.......
Yes ATheeC it does take you back to the summer days doesn't it? When we were all warm and enjoying the sun shine.
I can't thank you all enough for the most wonderful Sea Challenge Squares. I've just had such a wicked time putting these together. I do hope you like the Blanket. Thank you all so.....much I've just had so much fun!
Thanks for coming to the Seaside today with me......x
