AROUND THE WORLD
What a wondrous world we live in. Full of intriguing and interesting landscapes, both natural and manmade. From the mountains to the seas, from the newest cities to the oldest civilizations.This month we will take a trip around the world, discovering new and/or interesting sights....from the smallest flower to the largest structures. We can explore the many things that make our countries unique.
Our special events this month include Mandela Day, when we honour the late, great, Nelson Mandela.......
and the gathering of the world at the Olympic Games.
Our Colour of the Month (CoM) is BLUE. I had many colours in my stash that were a questionable blue, but on googling 'blue' I discovered a site listing 144!! I'm all good. :)) Here is a little sample from the site. I'm sure we all must have a little in our stash.
Please remember the importance of our Plain Jane squares in the blankets that are created. Perhaps make some in blue or a colour/s inspired by something in your landscape or somewhere you have visited. Have fun...and please share with us.

This is beautiful Patricia. I married a Glaswegian at Loch Lomond 20 years ago, and had thistles in my hand-held bouquet so this blanket made me smile and sigh, thank you ❤️
Oh wow, Karen! I'm so pleased I brought back such happy memories for you. Would you post a photo for us?
How beautiful, Karen. I'm glad I was nosy enough to ask for a photo! What a romantic location.
Wonderful photos, Karen!
Thanks for sharing, Karen. The photos are stunning, as is the family.
Dare I say that you youngsters really know how to do it right!
(since my husband and I had our 49th anniversary this year)
Another C2C masterpiece, Patricia, beautiful colours, and I can just see those thistles, and heather on the Scottish hills too.
Exactly like the thistle colours I remember. A beautiful blanket Patricia.
SUPER colours in your blanket, Patricia. The colourways are just gorgeous!!
We have thistle over here, but I don't know if it's the same. It would sometimes grow in my father's grazing paddocks on the farm and was seen as a weed, as I think the cattle/sheep couldn't or wouldn't eat it.
Stunning colours, Patricia, a beautiful blanket.
Oh, the Scottish Thistles blanket is charming, Patricia. IF that is what the hillsides of Scotland look like, they must be breath-taking.
