These are are lovely squares I received from Bridget. The words were very special as we have all been feeling so low with the devastation from the bush fires. It has made us aware of just how precious life is. There is still smoke around - seems it is just trying to remind us of the lives lost, our native animals and the bushland that will take a long time to recover.

I have received my squares for both Round #11 and Winter Round. First, Kaye from Alaska sent me a really cute pair of squares for Round #11 that will make a great pinkeep. I love the color. Jill was my partner for the Winter Round and she sent a wonderful wintery pair. Thanks to both of you. As soon as I finish these as pinkeeps I will post a picture.

The little snowman is so cute and I like her signature square with the symbol for South Carolina. She also included a gorgeous homemade card (picture can be seen on my blog)
Thanks again Karen!

These are adorable! Jennifer F. added some sparkle and shine and all my favorite colors are in the pieces. Her signature piece is really nice as well. This design is called "Winter Cardinal" by Waxing Moon. My husband fell in love with them, because cardinals are one of his favorite birds. Thanks so much!
Cyndi H. took note that I love birds and stitched me some cute flamingos. This design is from Prairie Schooler #72-"Two By Two II". I especially like the color of fabric she chose. These squares will be a great addition to the friendship quilt I plan to have one day. Thanks so much Cyndi and I really liked the card you designed for me.
