This has often been done in a late rush on a Wednesday
so you can imagine my delight at being on time this week..
Here are the FOUR squares I made this week..
hence falling even more behind, when I have
promised all and sundry that I will catch up
by 31st January...
Still 4 is better than none..
Pop over to Carole's blog Gingerbread Girl,
to see how everyone else is getting on with
their Tuesday Tallies...
You can also check them all out at the Ravelry
On Saturday morning the postman caused quite a stir
when he brought me this.....
An envelope all the way from South Africa!
Laura from My House in Africa had sent her
squares for the Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012..
and look... 9 of them! How generous!
It didn't matter how much I tried, I couldn't
get the camera to pick up what a lovely colour
these squares are..
A small plain dark Teal-green square measuring 10cm x 10cm
This one is the same size, the same colour,
but has a beautiful pale teal flower with
a blue centre ...WOW!
A larger (15cm x 15cm) granny squared circle
in the same 3 colours...
Another smaller square - this time with the base
ground in the paler teal green with a darker
flower centre.. WOW again!
Another smaller square (10cm x 10cm)
in the paler teal-green....
One gorgeous larger lacy square (16cm x 16cm),
which has a star motif in the centre,
surrounded by bands of trebles (UK term)
and single crochet (UK term)...
This one is bigger again (22cm x 22cm) and
is 3 bands of the previously used colours in
There is a pretty little centre too....
The same size (22cm x 22cm), same colours,
a centre that reminds me of the sun, with
groups of trebles in bands and then a
band of single crochet... lovely!
Finally, a 20cm x 20cm square in the same
3 colours, rows of trebles and single
crochet (UK terms)...
Some close ups...
Well done Laura... I can't believe you sent 9 squares...
thank you very much! You now have 9 entries
to win the...Beautiful Blogger Blanket of 2012...
As well as all this, Laura sent me a gift
all the way from South Africa.. a beautiful
traditional African beaded bowl or jug cover..
I put it over a wine glass to
show you all the lovely beading dangling down..
Thank you so much Laura!
