I won a Blog Giveaway! - Ta - Dah! Introducing 'Tidings of Comfort and Joy!' (37) 2/3

Thank you all so very much for the gorgeous Squares!

Hello Everyone!

How are you all?  Well I'm very pleased to say I have my 'cookie' problem solved. I haven't been able to sign in to Flickr and  Blogland very well because my 'cookie' settings were not 'set correctly!'.  I didn't even know what a cookie was.  I thought it was something you ate! I have had such a frustrating time this week.  When Mr. Twins came home this evening I said 'please can you help me, I can't speak to my friends!'. Well he sat down and in a couple of minutes I was working flat out again! So there you are.  If you are having trouble signing in whether it be Flickr or Blogland 'check your cookie settiings!'.  You probably already know about 'cookies', but I didn't!.

This morning at lunchtime I had the postie arrive. Along with some beautiful SIBOL Squares from ATheeC I had a package arrive from New Zealand.  Well who could that be from?  It was from my lovely friends Alice and Raymond.  I was so happy because I had won their  Blog Giveaway!  I am usually so unlucky!
Would you like to see?

Alice had wrapped the gift up in such wonderful paper! What a fabulous idea!

Guess What? I won a Blog Giveaway! 'Alice and Raymond' from New Zealand sent me this gift today! Thank You Alice!

I opened the gift, what did I see?

Pretty Bunting, Heart Brooch, Jelly Hearts, 'Giving' card. So pretty! Thank you!!


'Alice and Raymond' I love your Bunting! Thank You!

Such beautiful, beautiful Bunting!  Thank you so much Alice and Raymond for the gorgeous Gifts. You have made my day!

I popped outside as well to take some photos for you.  Our 37th SIBOL Blanket was finished.  Thanks so much everyone for the gorgeous Christmas Challenge Squares.  Simply wonderful!
I've had such fun making the second Blanket in this theme and tomorrow I will start the final Christmas Blanket. Thanks Amanda for choosing the name for the Blanket. The words 'Comfort and Joy' were mentioned a few times when getting ideas and I would like to thank everyone for their ideas!

I just love the Squares you sent for this Challenge, Thank You!

Sit back and enjoy our SIBOL Slide Show! Have a good weekend everyone!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 34 'Bonfire Theme 2/3'

'Do I have to say it Ladies?' Okay then.....'please add note' if you see your Square! Thank You!

Good Evening Everyone!

Thank you to everyone who has very kindly contributed Squares to our 'Bonfire Theme' Challenge.  All the Squares have been just wonderful! I have loved working with them all. I have now made the second Blanket for this theme and I have enjoyed every minute. I have one more 'Bonfire' Blanket to make and then I will start the Christmas Blankets.  Well I was going to start them today, but Luna sent me Bonfire Squares so I am to make a third now! Great fun!  I shall have to raid my Square stash for some Squares to go with Luna's colourful Squares.  It will be a challenge for me finding the right ones. But let's hope it won't be long before I can show you what I have come up with!

I just love making the Sunshine Blankets I can't thank you all enough!

Thank You to everyone who have contributed Squares for the Bonfire Theme Challenge! Beautiful, beautiful Squares! I love them. I am most grateful to you all!

Can you see a Granny Square which is Navy, Red and Blue? Well this Square was made by 'ATheeC's Daughter'.  I am so pleased she has started crocheting and I'm really really happy to include it in our SIBOL No. 34 Blanket. So thank you and keep up the good work! It's a beautiful Square and I am so pleased you enjoyed making it for SIBOL.

Here is the Slide Show for our new SIBOL.

Such wonderful Squares, thank you so much.  Without you I couldn't make the Blankets! x

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope you all had a good weekend.

I would like to thank you all for the most gorgeous Sea/Seaside Challenge Squares. Over the weekend I put together our Blanket for this Challenge.  I asked you a few months ago to use your imagination and make a Sea/Seaside themed Square.  Well I have to say I didn't really have that many Squares for this Challenge but I still managed to put a Blanket together with some lovely Squares I had waiting to be used.  The Blanket has
come out really well and I'm really pleased with it. I hope you like it.

Thank you all so much for the gorgeous Squares I receive virtually every day, but in particular the ones which I have used in this Blanket.

So are you ready with your Bucket and Spade? Got your Beach towel handy? All we need is a little bit of sunshine.....
