'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.

Thank you for Squares! Kim and Debra

Hi Everyone on Saturday,

It was a bit difficult for me to show you these Squares yesterday because I was out and about with Mr. Twin. Kim very kindly sent me her 'Sunny Squares'.  They really are so..........bright and beautiful thank you Kim.

Kimbles Sunshine Squares! Aren't they bright and sunny! Thank you!

Also Debra's Squares from the USA arrived this morning. They really are so pretty and I'm so pleased you have joined in the fun with us.

More Squares from across the pond USA. Debra Thank you very much!

Thank you Kim and Debra very much.

May I welcome all our new Followers to 'SIBOL', I hope you are enjoying reading about our project. We certainly are having a lot of fun.

Last night I uploaded photos on Flickr of the latest Blanket.  Pertinitaco (Pilar) was on line at the time and she suggested that we call the Blanket 'Across the Oceans' SIBOL.  She said the Blanket reminds her of the maritime flags they use on ships, like the 'signal flags'.  When you look at it yes I can see what she means. It's because of Kim's 'Anatasia X', we think.  She said the blue curly edge looks just like the sea waves.

Bethel said, " We are all across the Oceans from each other but at the end of a click in 'cyberspace!'.

So here it is. 'Across the Oceans' SIBOL.

'Across the Oceans' SIBOL.

That's the fourth Blanket we've made now. A joint effort with Friends all across the  World. A truly International effort, and aren't we having fun!

If you can't see your Square please bear with me. It will be used.  I seem to be colour co-ordinating.

Okay, here are our four 'SIBOLS!'. 'Sunshine International Blankets of Love' for the Elderly. All my Flickr and Blogland friends have helped me make these Blankets. If you'd like to join in the fun, you are most welcome! Details below Thank you!
