'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Some Good News (I hope).

Hi Everyone!

Just a bit of news for you.   I don't know whether anyone has signed up for Rachel's Crochet Spot Newsletter.  If you haven't I would recommend you do so.  She has a Crocheting web site where she has lots of fantastic information about Crocheting.  She has information on Charities, Crocheting Patterns, tutorials etc.,  It's fantastic.

Now yesterday when I received the Newsletter, she was asking if anyone would like to be a 'Guest Writer'. Well I thought what an opportunity for me to write something about 'SIBOL'.   I submitted an article to her, and it seems as though she is going to use it in a few weeks time. Her Newsletter goes out to loads of people and I feel this might be a really good way of 'spreading the word'.  I'm hoping we  will get a really good  response for our 'Sunshine Blankets' through her.

Please go and check it out, and sign up.  Then hopefully when she sends the Newsletter out you will have the article about 'SIBOL'. Good idea do you think? I hope so.


  1. Morning Sue - I will check out the website - sounds like a great idea to me - you are going to be snowed under with squares! How lovely if you ever need to 'sub-contract' I don't mind joining some together if it helps! **Kim**x

  2. I'm fine at the moment, 'coping' but thanks for the offer Kim.
    Isn't SIBOL GREAT? X

  3. I'm with Kim here. I can see an avalanche of squares coming your way very soon with all this publicity.
