'Sunshine Blankets' (Haven't decided 100% on the name yet,any ideas?) Squares arrived this morning from Elizabeth Cat hope you'll stop by.

Hi Everyone on Tuesday morning!

What excitement this morning! I saw the Postie walk on to the drive. I had the front door locked because the lock is playing up. Got my bundle of keys to open up, well I just could not find the proper key. I kept trying different keys, so silly. It was because I was excited I think. I managed to open the front door, then I couldn't open the Porch Door, that keeps sticking too! Poor fella was standing out there for ages!

This morning I received a parcel from Elizabeth Cat from Lativa. You probably all know her on Flickr. She makes the most beautiful Squares and the nice thing about Elizabeths work is that she combines different yarns into her Squares. You know the yarns which have a texture. So when the Squares are made up the feel of them is just fantastic. This is certainly something I will be trying.

Maria I will be putting you next to Kate in the next Blanket. Any more requests? I'll put one of my Squares by you both too! As well as the edging!

I couldn't wait to take some photos to show you all and to update my Slideshow. This is something I really enjoy.

Here goes make yourself a cuppa and enjoy looking at the Squares this morning. Thank you so much Elizabeth! Total 132 Squares. Thank you.

Anyone who would like to help in my Elderly project please go to 27th Jan / 14th Feb Post. Thank you. Everyone is welcome to join in the fun whether you Crochet or Knit.
