A whole heap of friends

Hello, friendly snail!

Hello, friendly snail!

As it’s Valentine’s day, I thought that I would celebrate love… in particular all the love that is coming my way in the form of friendship squares. This morning I was particularly touched to receive a snail-themed square from my wonderful blogging friend  ‘Young at Fifty’ (Things I want to create before wrinkles overwhelm me). In the accompanying letter, she says that her square is “a small contribution to a sustained friendship” – how lovely is that? As this is a slightly larger square than most of the others, I am planning to add a wide border to it decorated with flowers that will mark its arrival on Valentines day (you may not be aware that I hate cut flowers… but I love crochet ones).

A whole heap of friendship squares (all with edges)

As for the others that have been arriving steadily, I have spent most evenings this week putting borders on them. So that I now have a whole load that need to be stitched into the blanket. Up until now, most of my sewing has been done whilst watching (well, mostly listening to) the 6 Nations Rugby on the TV, but there is no rugby this week, so I will have to find a film or two to (not) watch.

Once again, sincere thanks and much love to all of you who have contributed or who are planning to contribute… if you don’t see your square below, that’s because I haven’t edged all of those that have arrived yet.

All these are ready to be sown together
