Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 68

Hello to everyone visiting 'Mrs Twins' today!

I'm very pleased to be showing you my latest 'Sunshine Blanket'.  It's No. 68! I know two more off the big number 70!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 68!

Thanks to everyone that has very kindly sent me Squares for this particular Blanket. I just absolutely love the colour combination on this Blanket Pink, Blue and Deep Pink.  Some of the Squares I have had for a long time, but if I can explain they have to wait patiently until I can get a nice set of 25!

I've had such fun making this Blanket and if you want to read the full story please pop over to SIBOL!

Thanks to everyone that has contributed Squares for this SIBOL! Very much appreciated!

I'm always so grateful to everyone that takes part in my project, without you I couldn't do what I am doing.
Many thanks to you all.

Now sit back and enjoy my Slide Show!

Bye for now!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOLS 66 & 67!

A Double Ta - Dah today! Our 'Two Tone Green' Challenge.

Good Evening everyone!

Well I have had a busy couple of weeks, what with the Builders here first of all then the Roofers! They have finally finished their work today! Hooray! Unfortunately I've been having problems with signing in to the web sites, but this evening Mr. Twins has managed to get me in.  It all came down to 'History' apparently. I needed to clear my History for things to work properly.

I just want to give you a tip. We find these things out when things go wrong.

Everytime I tried to write a New Post, it would say 're-directing' then a whole load of nonsence would appear in the top space http.... It would load up forever, then finally when it stopped it would say Error 303 or URL too large 414.  Now if this happens to you.......All you have to do is to clear some of your 'History'.
I did ask Karin to do a test post for me on SIBOL. She managed to do it okay, but why couldn't I? Well that was the answer. 'History'. Nothing at all wrong with 'Blogger' on this occasion, it was my lap top!
Anyway, I'm back to 'fully restored!'  :)

I have two 'Two Tone Green Blankets' to show you.

The first one SIBOL 66 has some Two Tone 'Patterned' Squares amongst them. I think this one has turned out really nice.

The 'Two Tone Green' was a good idea!

The second one is purely comprising of Two Tone 'Grannies'. I made a fringe for this one. It took me a long time to finish it. Doing 19 chain into each stitch. I love the Grannies in this one.

Had fun with these Grannies!

A lot of photos to look at. Would you like to see my Slide Show?

Thanks to everyone that has sent Squares for this particular Challenge. I've had such fun working with the Squares they have all been beautiful!

Have a lovely evening!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 65 'and I didn't even make it!'

Daisys in the sunshine!

Hi Everyone!

That's right I didn't even make this one!  In the post this morning I received a box and inside was a Blanket, very carefully made and presented.

The Blanket came from 'rebekka's goodies' - Heather.  I just couldn't believe how beautifully she had put this together!

I really love how she has joined these Squares together, I love the pattern and most of all I love the colours that she has used in each Square. It is simply beautiful and I know the Nursing Home are going to love it.

Heather is so kind donating this Blanket to SIBOL and I'm just over the moon!

I'm sure you will agree it's just so bright and cheerful, absolutely wonderful!

Thanks for popping in to hear my news.
