Good holiday? Three Ta - Dah's for you!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas holiday! I've still got family at home so I'm a bit pushed for time.  Just popping in to show you three Blankets I finished over the holidays. Not much time for the computer I'm afraid. I'll be glad to get back to normal next week.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed Squares for these three Blankets. They are just wonderful.  I had such fun making them up.  I've just started the Black and White group now. There are four altogether! 

Here are my Ta - Dah's!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No., 43 'Strawberries and Cream' Challenge 3/4

Pretty Squares thank you!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks to everyone that has been visiting 'Mrs Twins' and has left me comments, I am most grateful to you. I am so pleased you like the Blankets. Your comments are very much appreciated thank you!

Many thanks also  to everyone that sent me in Squares for the 'Strawberries and Cream' Challenge.  I have now finished the third of four Blankets in this set.  There is one more to do in this set and I am desperately trying to get this set finished so I can give them out. Thanks Beverley - one of your little Flowers attached to the Blanket, can you see it? Lovely!

The Jan Eaton Blanket has also been started and as soon as I have finished the next (and last) Blanket in this set I will devote my time to that one.  I know you are eager to send in a Square for the next 26 to 50, but I need to get to where I want to be. I hope you understand. 

So without further a do, here's the third 'Strawberry and Cream' Blanket.  Any ideas for names Ladies?

Thanks to everyone who contributed Squares for this Challenge 3/4. Please 'add note' if you see your Square!

Here's my Slide Show for you. 

Have a good week everyone and thank you!

Good Morning Everyone,

Very nice of you to pop into Mrs Twins today!

I've been working on two Ta - Dah's secretly, in between Challenges.  I have now finished them and I'm very pleased to be showing you. Rebekka_uk very kindly sent me 50 Squares back in July and it's taken me quite a while to assemble them, but now they are finished.

I do hope you like them Rebekka_uk and everyone that is visiting my blog today.

This Blanket has been named 'White Blossom' by Rebekka_uk who contributed the Squares.

and came up with this......You have a lot of 'add notes' Rebekka! All Yours!........> Ta - Dah! SIBOL 41.

Ta - Dah! SIBOL 42

This one is called 'Lilac Bloom'.

I have a Slide Show for you, I hope you enjoy and thank you Rebekka_uk for the most beautiful Squares, very much appreciated.

Such pretty Summery Squares! I love them all, thank you! ....>

Hi Everyone!

I'm very pleased to be showing you SIBOL No. 40! I can't believe I have now assembled 1,000 Squares from all over the World.  This is the second Blanket in the 'Strawberry and Cream' theme.  I have used a name that Rebekka_uk sent over when I was asking for names for the first Blanket in this theme.  I think it is so appropriate Rebekka! Thank You!

I've had such fun with this Blanket too. I want to thank you all for the gorgeous Squares, they are amazing!

I won a Blog Giveaway! - Ta - Dah! Introducing 'Tidings of Comfort and Joy!' (37) 2/3

Thank you all so very much for the gorgeous Squares!

Hello Everyone!

How are you all?  Well I'm very pleased to say I have my 'cookie' problem solved. I haven't been able to sign in to Flickr and  Blogland very well because my 'cookie' settings were not 'set correctly!'.  I didn't even know what a cookie was.  I thought it was something you ate! I have had such a frustrating time this week.  When Mr. Twins came home this evening I said 'please can you help me, I can't speak to my friends!'. Well he sat down and in a couple of minutes I was working flat out again! So there you are.  If you are having trouble signing in whether it be Flickr or Blogland 'check your cookie settiings!'.  You probably already know about 'cookies', but I didn't!.

This morning at lunchtime I had the postie arrive. Along with some beautiful SIBOL Squares from ATheeC I had a package arrive from New Zealand.  Well who could that be from?  It was from my lovely friends Alice and Raymond.  I was so happy because I had won their  Blog Giveaway!  I am usually so unlucky!
Would you like to see?

Alice had wrapped the gift up in such wonderful paper! What a fabulous idea!

Guess What? I won a Blog Giveaway! 'Alice and Raymond' from New Zealand sent me this gift today! Thank You Alice!

I opened the gift, what did I see?

Pretty Bunting, Heart Brooch, Jelly Hearts, 'Giving' card. So pretty! Thank you!!


'Alice and Raymond' I love your Bunting! Thank You!

Such beautiful, beautiful Bunting!  Thank you so much Alice and Raymond for the gorgeous Gifts. You have made my day!

I popped outside as well to take some photos for you.  Our 37th SIBOL Blanket was finished.  Thanks so much everyone for the gorgeous Christmas Challenge Squares.  Simply wonderful!
I've had such fun making the second Blanket in this theme and tomorrow I will start the final Christmas Blanket. Thanks Amanda for choosing the name for the Blanket. The words 'Comfort and Joy' were mentioned a few times when getting ideas and I would like to thank everyone for their ideas!

I just love the Squares you sent for this Challenge, Thank You!

Sit back and enjoy our SIBOL Slide Show! Have a good weekend everyone!
