'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.

Sue, your blankets deserve beautiful names instead of numbers..........


  1. You're right Karin.
    A number is nothing. A name is something.
    Let's throw it out to everyone! I'm useless at names.
    I think if we can come up with a wacky square. It might be a 'logo' for us! What do you think?
    OOh, my mind won't rest, with all this excitement this evening. It will be me who can't sleep!
    Hugs to you and so many thanks for your wonderful idea. We have to publicise this new 'Sunniest Sunshine Blanket!'.

  2. Boy of boy!!!!! Karin is on fire with ideas. Sounds a bit like The Garden Bell has got to her ☺
    My only suggestion, without too much thinking - Sue mentioned that the purple and green were her mothers favourite colours - can we call her by her christian name or a family nickname???????

  3. Mom's name is 'Alice' Bit difficult?
    NO nickname. She's just the best person in the World!
    She loves purple and green. Her garden is full of purple flowers, green grass of course.
    Her house well she has purple carpets, green carpets. Purple ornaments, green ornaments. Everything matches.
    Thanks ladies!

  4. "Alice in Sunshineland" ........ ???

  5. I've added on Flickr.
    The name for 'Sunshine no. 3'
    'Alice in Sunshineland'.

    Thanks Karin and Maria!
