Yesterday was so exciting... and I loved making
the announcement announcement of the winner of the BBB 2012.
As you know I haven't finished showing you all the squares that have come plopping through my letterbox, so today, as a treat, I will show you the lovely Faith's squares... Faith has her own gorgeous blog 'Faith', which I'm sure you have all seen. Faith lives on a farm in Wales with her hubby and 3 sons...
......can you imagine how busy she is?
Here are the squares Faith sent us.. be prepared to gasp!
Faith sent a gorgeous little package wrapped in handmade paper and a card that she has painted herself! Such a gorgeous butterfly...
Thank you so much Faith!
And 10 squares...
Faith says that all of the squares bar 2 are from the book, '150 Blocks to Knit and Crochet'... this is by Heather Lodinsky.
The first one is #33 - The Tri-colour wheel in square.
The second is #34 - Flower Square
The third is #35 - Off-Centred Granny
Faith found the pattern for this cream and pale pink square in a Rowan book in her library...
The fifth is so unusual - #37,
The sixth is #30 - Double Crochet Square
I have never seen anything like the seventh square,
it looks very difficult to make - I'm determined to
give it a try myself... #38, Colour Swirl Granny
The eighth is just blooming amazing -
#32 - Circles Square
I think this ninth one is the square that faith called
a 'Mish-mash' of a few patterns....
Beautiful mish-mash Faith!
Finally the tenth square - #29, Colour Dot Square
(with an extra round of trebles)....
All 10 together look yummy....
The only thing I don't know - and am dying to know - is what yarn faith used, because the colours are really unusual in cottons and I LOVE them!!
Please do let us know Faith.
Now you might think I am finished ... but Faith read that I was struggling with sewing the blanket together because I needed lots of little squares... so look what plopped through my letterbox right at the last minute!
Ten tiny little squares in beautiful colours... WELL! I was so delighted...and the sewing up sped up beautifully that night!
Thanks so much Faith... I can't wish you luck now because the deed is done, but you contributed enormously to the BBB 2012 and made it just
that bit more special!
I am really looking forward to organising the
Beautiful Blogger Blanket 2013.. do you think
you will all want to have another go next year?
