Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 26 'Blue and White' theme 2.

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope you  are all enjoying the weekend.  It's a long one for us here in the UK.
It's Bank Holiday on Monday so that means another day off for those who go to
work.  Mr. Twins and myself have just got back from having a Curry.  We have been
to the same restaurant for over 30 years.  The service was rubbish to tell you the
truth, we were kept waiting for ages for our meal. It looked like the young people on
the next table got fed up of waiting because while they were waiting for their main
course they decided to go outside for cigarettes! Well they didn't come back!
Honestly, haven't they got a cheek! I certainly never did that when I was young.

Anyway, I'm stopping by this evening to show you the  latest SIBOL
Blanket.  It looks like a twin blanket to me, rather like the first 'Blue and White' I
have been wanting to use up some white yarn I had here. The Squares are so different
of course, they have been simply beautiful to work with.  Thank you so much to everyone
who has sent some for this Challenge.  I have to thank dear Kate for the gorgeous home-dyed
yarn she sent for the 'Blue and White' themes. It has worked up so beautifully and it was such
a pleasure to work with! Please check Kates' blog 'The Garden Bell'.

The first 'Blue and White' is on the left. It's called 'Wedgewood Willow'.  We need a name for  the Blanket on the left please?

I'm off to start the next one now, have a good evening everyone! Thank you so much for the beautiful Squares.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 25! 'Blue and White' theme 1.

Hi Everyone!

I do hope you all had a good weekend! I've been busy today finishing off my first Blue and White Blanket.  It's been really nice working with the beautful SIBOL Squares I have received. Thank you to everyone who has contributed.  I have now made 25 Blankets with 25 Squares in each. Gosh! I've just
worked that out. 625 Squares wow!  Squares from I think 16 or 17 countries, amazing!!
So thank you to all who have very kindly sent me these Squares. Who would have thought it, when I first
of all mentioned my idea on 'Mrs Twins' back in January!

May I say Congratulations to The Garden Bell.  She has just reached her 1st Blog Anniversary and I'm so
happy that she has stayed the course! Please visit her wonderful Blog. She has the most amazing photographs, and her blankets are just lovely. Not to mention her wonderful home-dyed yarn! Simply beautiful.  Kate well done!

I have been waiting desperately for your little seeds to start shooting. They seemed to be taking a long time.  I've  only had a few flowers so far, unfortunately those slugs have had  a bit of a meal! I can't remember the names though Kate, the little packet has disintegrated!

Anyway, here's my Slide Show. I hope you like the Blanket, I've had so much fun making it!
Thanks to all!

Thanks for paying me a visit today!

Thank You!


Thanks to everyone for their very nice Birthday wishes! It was really lovely of you all! I spent a quiet day with my Family and I have to say a 'SIBOL free day!'. Gosh I felt so quilty too!  I spent a few hours making a cover for some storage boxes and I started a Shawl with Kim's beautiful yarn she sent to me! If you want to see the shawl please go to Kates' blog. Kim sent me some lovely 'Rainbow Glitz' yarn and it was a real treat for me! I'll let you see it when it's finished. Thank you Kim.

Thank you Merchy  for the great e card too! Very nice of you!

I hope you have all had a nice weekend. I've got Little Miss Twin (2)  back at work tomorrow, but now Mr. Twin is here for the week. So I'm hoping that I'll be able to post. 'You know how it is!'.

Thanks again,

Love Suex

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 23 (Flower theme 8)

Hi Everyone!

It's Saturday evening 8.30pm nearly and it's been a really
miserable day here in the UK today. We've had such a lot
of rain with sunny spells in between. It's been quite difficult
to take photos today but I managed it in the end!

I had some lovely Squares come in from Joyce 28 today.
I hope you pop over to SIBOL to have a look at them.
I also finished SIBOL No. 23. This didn't take me long at
all. I only needed to do one row of edging around each Square.

The Red and Blue Flowers belonged to Luna, and I also
used a couple of Netties' Squares, Molly and Wanda. OOh! I
needed another Flower so I followed the video on the side bar on
SIBOL to make a Flower Square, but as it was only the Flower I
needed I just crocheted the Flower head. Why not pop over and
have a look? Scroll down.

I'm really pleased how the Blanket has come out. I have one
more Flower Blanket to make and that's the Challenge over!

I'll leave you with the Blanket, thanks for visiting me!

Other Ladies' Squares included in this Blanket from Wanda, Nettie, GrannySquare49, Flower from me (1 short).
