Hello Everyone!

Another week, another SIBOL Blanket....... This one is Number 71!

We have been collecting Squares for our 'Spring Challenge'. It's been lovely to see what has been coming in for this special Challenge.  I have put together the first of two Blankets. I just love the Crocheted and Knitted Squares that you have been sending in thank you all so much!

Hi Everyone!

I love my Ta - Dah's! I hope you don't get fed up with seeing them!

I am so happy because we have reached the Big 70!  I actually finished this one on Friday, and Puppet Lady's braid arrived just in time. I think it looks quite pretty! Thank you Puppet Lady!

Well here it is. The Squares have been sent in from as far as America and I would like to thank you all very much indeed. I just love to see what you come up with.

I won a Blog Giveaway! and my drawer swap!'s our Wedding Anniversary today!

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for popping by 'Mrs Twins' today. 

First of all it is our Wedding Anniversary today, so Mr. Twins 'I love you and thank you for 28 beautiful years!'.

So amongst the opening of cards this morning, I received a parcel. A few days ago I found out when visiting Chalky's blog  that her dear Buster had picked my Number and I had won a Giveaway to my surprise! Pop over and have a look! Well this morning the parcel arrived. Oh goodness what a treat!  Do you want to join me in opening it? Here goes.......

What's in the box?

What's in the box? 'Chalkys World' Blog Giveaway!

I know it was a bit of a mystery, until I opened it and saw all these beautifully wrapped gifts. Each one had beautiful Butterflies adorning them.....Oh how lovely! Matching paper and there was certainly a theme going on here!

The gifts kept going on and on and on.....What a beautiful start to a day, a very special day at that!

Thank you so very much Chalky 75. You certainly put such a lot of thought  and effort into your Blog Giveaway and I want to say a Big Thank You!!!!! I love everything you have sent to me.  Please now pop over to Chalky's World and say hello! She works so hard with her Crafty goodies, and there is always something so wonderful to see in Chalky's World!

This wasn't the only parcel to arrive this morning, I also received a package from Puppet Lady.  Would you like to see what was inside this one? A few weeks ago I sent Puppet Lady  a wad of felt that I no longer needed.  I felt she could put it to better use than what I could! Well she has been having a 'Drawer-raid' herself and this is what she sent to me.

Puppetystuff and myself have had a 'Drawer-raid Swap!'

Some beautiful pink ribbon and also a large reel of beige Braid. This was from her Mothers' stash and she wanted me to have it.    This will be so......useful for our 'Sunshine Blankets' for SIBOL, thank you so much Puppet Lady!

Wow! It's been quite a morning! Now I'm off to celebrate our 28th year of Wedding Bliss! :)

Thank you both very much indeed and I hope you have a good weekend.

Thanks for stopping by 'Mrs Twins' today!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 69!

I love the attaching of the Squares and I love the border thank you Louise!

Good Evening Everyone!

Just popping in to show you our latest Ta - Dah! This is Number 69, I know only one more to the big 70!

I am very happy indeed to be telling you that Louise very kindly sent me back today a SIBOL Blanket which she has been putting together for us. I'm sure you will agree she's made it beautifully and I just love how she has done the border and attached the Squares together.

It's very pretty in Purple and Green, and she says it reminds her of Wimbledon Colours! So I think Louise you may be thinking of a name I hope so!  I'm very grateful to you when I know you have other projects on the go too!

Please add note if you see your Square!

May I thank everyone that has contributed Squares for this Blanket. I'm sorry if you have had to wait a long time to see them again! But I'm sure you will agree it's come out beautifully!

Thank you so much Louise. I will be showing you my Farmyard Blanket very soon now, thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' today!
