Jersey Textile Showcase Challenge.

Good Afternoon!

I am really pleased to be showing you some Squares that have been made sent to me today by Tinaspice They are Squares for our Jersey Textile Showcase Festivals Challenge.

As you can see from the photo below she has some fantastic ideas.

Over to the left we have 'Westminster Cathedral' and the theme is 'Flower Festival'. What a lot of detail in this Square! I love the Stained Glass Windows on the Cathedral and what a good idea to embroider pretty Flowers too. It's absolutely superb.

In the middle we have 'Festival of the Sea'. Just look at the waves so realistic. Made in gorgeous variegated yarn they really look like splashing waves. Lovely sails too fantastic!

Below we have 'Festival of Christmas'. Mary, Joseph and the Baby. Of course we have to have Christmas! Appropriate too for this time of year.

Then over to the right some Bunting Squares which will be lovely to add some colour to this special Blanket. So bright and cheerful.

Tinaspice. Squares for our Jersey Textile Showcase Challenge. Thank you very much. Superb!

Tinaspice very kindly sent me some Ribbon to decorate our Blankets which will be very useful indeed. You will see the photo in my Slide Show.

You certainly have put a lot of thought into these Squares Tinaspice. Beautifully made full of wonderful colour and interest. I'm sure everyone is going to love them.

I can't thank you enough for all the effort you have put into the making of them.

We now have enough Squares for this Challenge and I shall start putting it together now.

Thank you so much!

The Blanket will be sent off when finished to Jersey Textile Showcase and next March it will be exhibited and then sold to raise money for Macmillan nurses.

Thanks also to everyone who has sent in Squares for this Blanket.

Here's your Slide show now!
