Amy these squares are impeccable.   Superb idea and such appropriate colour choices - very clever indeed X

All Creatures Great and Small

Flamingo Dance

You’ve done it again Sandra…another stunning blanket. I hope that you’ve seen that two of your amazing blankets went to children in the oncology ward. It made their Christmas very special! Thank you. 

I think flamingoes would have to be one of my favourite animals, Sandra. They are just so pretty, as is this GORGEOUS blanket you have created. Your chosen colours are superb.  :))

Another masterpiece, Sandra. I'm always interested to see what you come up with next.

Sandra, your blankets are always so special and memorable. I can only imagine how much children will love them :))

Sandra this is fantastic.   I applaud your ideas and workwomanship!

Oh I do so like this one!

January 2022 Theme - All Creatures Great And Small
Two more shades of pink.  :))  They are both looking a little washed out from their  true colours.

I wondered what your music was going to be, Bev, but we know this tune as The Birdie Song so I'd never have guessed it. I was disappointed the lady in the hoodie was cut out of the later frames as my eyes kept drifting across to her! My Granny used to keep chickens so these squares have very happy memories for me. Beautiful.

I had to view the clip again, Patricia, as I didn't recall the lady in the hoodie. 

I was taken with the costumes of the ladies in the front and the vigour with which they performed the dance during each chorus.  :))

My family had chickens when I was little and when our boys were little we had chickens for a few years, until the relentless attacks by foxes forced us to quit. We had tried all the 'tricks' meant  to thwart their efforts, but there is a reason why there is a saying 'cunning as a fox'.

Adorable squares, Bev.  I can almost hear that rooster :))))  And what a fun song!  I’ve heard it before but hadn't seen it "in action".  I'm picturing you and Charlotte laughing and dancing around to this one ... at least it's certainly something that would have had my grandsons pulling on my arms to join in a l-o-n-g time ago ... hahaha
