I just love this Challenge, flowers are my favourite!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' this evening.

I have 'another' Ta - Dah for you. Our 97th! Our second 'Grow me a Garden' Blanket.  Three more to go before we get to that magical number '100'!

I have had such a lovely time putting these gorgeous Squares together. You know I love 'Flower Squares' and these ones are just superb!

Thank you to everyone that has very kindly donated these Squares, I'm over the moon with them once again. It has certainly been a great Challenge to assemble.

Let's take a look at the Squares.

Ta - Dah's 4 of them!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' this evening.

It has been one of those 'very exciting' SIBOL days! You know when that word 'WOW!' comes to mind. In the post this morning I received four, yes four Sunshine Blankets! They were assembled by Linda of Chalky's World and the Squares were donated by the Ladies on the MSE thread.

Not Squares in this parcel, but.......>

I just could not believe my eyes when I opened the large parcel. How very kind! The Ladies on the MSE thread work hard all year round for various Charities. They are such a kind bunch. I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your Squares. These Blankets will be delivered with the rest October/November time.  As I said on SIBOL, the Elderly are going to have some really beautiful Blankets covering their knees throughout the Winter.

Well done Linda 'Chalky' for assembling them so beautifully and well done to the Ladies on MSE too. Thank you all so much.

Let's have a look now at the Blankets.


Thank you to all the Ladies over on MSE thread that have made these Squares. Chalky75 has very kindly put the Squares together and donated this Beautiful Blanket. I am just so grateful to them all!.


Ladies over on MSE sent these Squares to Chalky75 who very kindly made the Blanket and donated to SIBOL! Wow!


Ladies over on the MSE Thread sent these Squares to Chalky75 who very kindly made this Blanket up and donated to SIBOL! i am just so touched by your kindness. Thank You all!


Thanks to the Ladies on MSE who have very kindly donated these beautiful Squares and to Chalky75 who has assembled them and sent them to SIBOL! Amazing!

I've made a Slide Show for you to showcase your beautiful Blankets thank you all so much! I love them.

Have a good evening everyone, thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins'

Of course our 'SIBOL' Butterflies.

Hi Everyone!

May I thank everyone who has taken part in our 'Tropical Challenge'. The Squares have been amazing and I have enjoyed assembling each one.  I have today finished the second of these Blankets. It indeed has been a wonderful theme to work on. Your ideas which turned into beautiful Squares are just so fantastic!

May I show you now the second of these Blankets?

I would like a name for this one please!

A great afternoon for photos!

Do you like it? Let's see more now.

Ten more to go, before we hit the 100th!

Flowers and Butterflies make up SIBOL 89!

'Thanks to bonsall (UK) and Laura (Netherlands) for the most beautiful Squares!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Flowers and Butterflies make up this 89th 'Sunshine Blanket' with many thanks to bonsall (UK) and Laura (Netherlands).  I decided to put the two sets of Squares together because they both had green backgrounds and I thought they would go well together. I am really pleased how this Blanket has turned out.

I was saying over on 'SIBOL' that the edging took me ages! It simply is a chain of 24 but it was neverending! I would do a little each day and that's why it's taken me a while. But I'm so pleased how this one has turned out. Another favourite of mine, But as I say everytime 'I love them all!'.

Thanks bonsall and Laura I am most grateful to you for the prettiest of Squares!

I wish my Garden was full of beautiful Flowers!

Here's our 89th Slide Show!

I wish my garden looked like this! It's pretty bare now.

Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' today!

50 Squares, two Ta - Dah's!

Two new 'SIBOLS!'.

Hi Everyone!

Well another 50 Squares have been made up, the numbers are adding up. It will soon be our 100th Sunshine Blanket and I am so...excited!

I would like to thank 'Jean Nock' very much indeed for assembling 'SIBOL 87' (Right)  for me. I'm sure you will agree she has made a wonderful job. I am most grateful to you and indeed to everyone who has contributed Squares for this particular Blanket. This Blanket comes under our 'Mens' Department. :)

Great work thank you 'Jean Nock' for assembling this one.

The second Blanket was a total shock and surprise!  I received a parcel a few days ago from 'joyce28' and on opening I thought joyce28 had  just been so busy making Squares for SIBOL.  Little did I know inside there was a Blanket! I was so surprised!

joyce28 has very kindly been busy making Squares from the 'Knit Today' magazine. They actually did a full page spread of Crocheted patterns called 'Simple Squares' and they suggested they send to 'SIBOL'. Well I thought it would be a good idea to make a Blanket up from Squares.  But I didn't know joyce28 was secretly making her own Blanket to send too!  I'm absolutely over the moon with the Blanket and I really appreciate your kindness joyce28.

If you would like to make a Square for the second 'Knit Today' Blanket please email me Sue on

I'm sure you will want to see now.

An Elderly person is going to love this Blanket.

What lovely Blankets thanks to everyone!

The Blankets are adding up now. SIBOL 86!

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 86!

Good Evening Everyone!

I have another Ta - Dah for you! I have'nt even had to crochet a Square together this time! A parcel arrived in the post yesterday and I thought golly there are a lot of Squares here! When I opened it I found a Blanket. Yes a beautiful Blanket from Rainbow Ribbon.

I am just so touched by the kindness she has shown.  To receive Squares is just wonderful, but to receive a made up Blanket is just fantastic. This really saves me a lot of work and I am most grateful to her.

I'm sure you want to see it. I have made a Slide Show sit back now and enjoy! Rainbow Ribbon may I have a name for your Blanket please?  Thank you so much for going to such a lot of trouble.

Did you like the Blanket? I do hope so.

Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' this evening.
