Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 52. 'The Newspaper Blanket'.

'Whats black and white and 'red' all over?' SIBOL No.52 'The Newspaper Blanket'. 4/4 I'm pleased to say......:)

Hello Everyone!

I hope you have all had a good day. I've been busy all day loading  up lots of beautiful Squares  for you all to see. Please pop over to SIBOL and have a look at them. It's also a special day, another Ta - Dah! Our 52nd 'Sunshine Blanket'.  Thanks to everyone that has very kindly contributed Squares for this Challenge. I've had so much fun making them.  This is the final Blanket of the 'Black and White' Set, four altogether!  This one is called 'The Newspaper Blanket' because.....it's Black and White and 'red' all over! Our Newspapers do have colour in them!

Nice to see the Green Grass out there!....>

Here's the Slide Show for SIBOL No. 52. Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' and welcome to all my new Followers. Don't be shy, say hello!

Have a great evening/day!

Pay it forward ' thank you Maria!'

Hi Everyone!

Well apart from Squares in the post this morning which I shall write about on SIBOL, I received a package from Australia, dear Aussie Maria! Thank you!

I don't really know how this 'Pay it Forward' all started but I have seen it on a couple of blogs in my travels around the World. It's  a good idea, and know I can say I am taking part in it!

The thing I'm wondering is....Can you make anything to pass on? I hope so....

Would you like to see Aussie Maria's gift to me? Here it is.

On the one side is Maria's Australia

                                                 and on the other is a beautiful piggie! So cute!

Thanks so much for thinking of me Maria. I'll do my best now to 'Pay It Forward!' Thank You!

My 50th SIBOL! 'Liquorice Allsorts!

I love this Black and White the best! SIBOL 50. 'Please add note if you see your Square!'

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are having a nice Saturday.  I'm extremely happy to be introducing my 5Oth SIBOL today! 1,250 Squares now assembled! We've done pretty well Ladies I think....

I have two more to do in this Black and White theme. Here is the 2nd one. It's called 'Liquorice Allsorts!'.


Sit back now and enjoy having a look at the Slide Show, thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' today!
Have a good weekend.

rebekka's goodies suggested 'Liquorice Allsorts' today.
Kimblesathome suggested the name yesterday and so did Pearly Queen for the first Black and White so we will go with this one for the second blanket, thank you Ladies! x
This time spelt the English way, although Pearly Queen is from France! x

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 49. 'Black and White' Challenge 1/4

Thanks to al who have contributed Squares for this Challenge. 'Please add note' if you see your Square! Thank You!

Good Morning Everyone!

Well it's a miserable day here today in the UK. Pouring of rain, mind you we shouldn't complain. You only have to look on the TV to see such awlful weather around the World, we here in the UK must count ourselves lucky! 

I hope you don't mind....I didn't go out today to take a photo on my bench.  It was so wet out there, and it's dark too and miserable.  So...I've had to take a couple inside. 

I'm very happy to be telling you I have finally finished the first of the 'Black and White' Challenge Blankets. What with helping Aishwarya set up Ravelry I haven't had much time to crochet.  But here is SIBOL No. 49.
I am asking for a name if anyone can think of one, thank you!

Thanks to everyone that has sent me Squares for this Challenge, they have been superb once again!

I hope you enjoyed looking at the first 'Black and White' Sunshine Blanket. I really enjoyed making it.
