Ta - Dah! 'Across the Oceans' SIBOL. (4th Sunshine Blanket).

Hi Everyone!

May I thank Kim for her 'sunny Squares' which were received yesterday. They really are bright and cheerful! I didn't have chance to put them on here yesterday. Also this morning I received some really pretty Squares from Debra. I do hope you are 'tuning' in. Debra lives in Bowie, USA. Thank you very much for the Squares they have been received okay.

Kimbles Sunshine Squares! Aren't they bright and sunny! Thank you!

Now the fourth Blanket is finished. With the help of my International Friends I am very happy to introduce you to 'Across the Oceans' SIBOL.

'Across the Oceans' SIBOL.

Last night I uploaded photos on Flickr of the latest Blanket.  Pertinitaco (Pilar) was on line at the time and she suggested that we call the Blanket 'Across the Oceans' SIBOL.  She said the Blanket reminds her of the maritime flags they use on ships, like the 'signal flags'.  When you look at it yes I can see what she means. It's because of Kim's 'Anatasia X', we think.  She said the blue curly edge looks just like the sea waves.

Bethel said, " We are all across the Oceans from each other but at the end of a click in 'cyberspace!'.

I would like to say that if you don't see your Square please bear with me. I seem to be colour co-ordinating! It will be shown. All Squares will be made into Blankets and donated to the Elderly.

Thank you 'Happy Saturday!'. Enjoy looking at the Squares!

  6. Perfect name. You get better with each one. Hope all is well. Just trying to catch up on all my buddies blogs tonight. Today was 75 and not a cloud.

    Happy at the Beach,

  8. The blankets are looking beautiful, Sue; the squares are all lovely and you are doing a wonderful job with the sewing together and finishing off.


  9. Hello Sue,
    Can you email me your address to ship my granny squares for the sunshine blanket? I'm shipping it over seas so give me the complete address including your country. I have four done (you can see them on my blog) and I hope to make some more before I ship. It's the most beautiful spring day here - the sun is out and the birds are singing. So we cleaned out our shed. But it was nice to be outside. My email is on my blog.
