Hello everyone and welcome to SIBOL!
I am very pleased to be showing you the squares that have come in for our 200th blanket. I can't believe that we have now made 199 already. I asked the 'SIBOLETTES' on RAVELRY if they had any ideas of what we could do to celebrate our 200th blanket and craftymizz suggested that we make a blanket using my Grandmother as inspiration.
Today I received a square from jenn1feranne in Scotland. My Grandmother was an Aston Villa fan and there were often heated discussions about the matches with my Father. When I was asked to write about my Grandmother's favourite things and what she liked doing I mentioned the Football.
Today I have received a really pretty square. The Granny square background is in the colours of Aston Villa as you can see and in the centre a red rose one of my Grandmother's favourite flowers.
It really is a wonderful square thank you jenn1feranne. I can't wait to see the squares that we are collecting. There are still places if you want to help make a special 200th blanket please pop over to RAVELRY.
jenn1feranne also helped me out with a Jan Eaton square I needed. This one has turned out lovely too.
I am only waiting for one more and then I can get the blanket made up. This square is called 'Raspberries & Cream' and it's No. 77 in the Jan Eaton book. '200 Crochet Blocks for blankets, throws and afghans'.
Both brilliant squares, thank you jenn1feranne!
