Ta - Dah ! Introducing 'SIBOL NO. 8'.

Hi Everyone!

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend! It's been a nice day here and I've managed to get 'SIBOL No.8' now and truly finished.  With thanks to  Posy Linda in Florida who very kindly donated the Squares!  I've had such fun doing this Blanket. Mind you I have fun doing all the Blankets! Who wouldn't with these gorgeous Squares!

If you go over to 'SIBOL' Karin has written a post today and she's put some gorgeous photos up of her Flower Squares.  She's made a wonderful job of them.  I expect now everyone thinks they have to get their skates on and hurry up! 

Tonight I have to write an article for 'Inside Crochet' would you believe.  They contacted me last week because they had seen our 'SIBOL' Blog.  They were very interested in our SIBOL Project and want me to send up some photos and do a write up. So I just hope I can do it okay. If I get the article in by next Friday it will be  in the next issue.  I will let you know when it's published!  Of course Rachel very kindly put an article in her Weekly news update also.  So all in all we'll getting popular!  Who would have thought it little me, SAHM, not worked,  for 24 years all of a sudden sending up an article for a Crocheting magazine. I still can't get my head round it!  Just a little idea I had in my head, and it's all thanks to the kind Ladies on the blogs that have helped me make my dream come true! I have a full time admin-job here now what with the blogs, checking enquiries about SIBOL, etc., etc.,  OOh, what fun! Not to mention the Crocheting. 

We're all having a great time making the Squares, and it's given us all something to chat about I think. I feel we have a really nice little crafting community around us!

Anyway, back to the job in hand.  Here's the Updated Slide Show with the new Blanket included 'SIBOL No.8!'  I do hope Posy Linda likes it. Thanks so much to you Posy Linda and everyone else that helps me.

Enjoy the rest of the Weekend everyone!
