'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.

Welcome to 'Team Blogging!'.

Hello Everyone!

It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon, the sun is shining and it's really quite pleasant outside. I asked Mr Twin if he'd take a photo of me sitting on the bench with my Blankets. 'Quick, Quick!' I kept saying, I didn't want any of my neighbours to see me, I feel a fool when waiting for photos.   I couldn't get over my grey hair on the photo, I suddenly felt aged.

Mrs Twins and her 'Sunshine Blankets!' Thanks everyone! If you would like to help me by making a Square, please visit my blog suesfavouritethings.blogspot.com

I'd like to say thanks to Louise, Molly, Maria, Helen, Bethel for accepting my invitation to 'team blogging'. I don't really know how this is going to work I have to be honest with you. 'Team Blogging' means that you are able to write a post to my blog. In my case 'SIBOL'.  Please feel free to write anything you like whether it applies to the project or not'. It's just a bit of fun. Or maybe you want to write about the Squares that you've sent me. For instance, if Kim joins she might like to write about how she made the Square with the 'x' in. The Intarsia Square.  Or maybe Molly where she got the patterns from for her Squares. I really don't mind what you write. Perhaps you have an idea of how we can get more people to join in making the Blankets. I've posted some notices on Ravelry and already one lady in America has said she'd like to make some for me. Perhaps you know of another Knitting and Crocheting forum?

I don't really knows what happens your end, could you let me know. Does anyone want to be the first to try this out? Can you try posting something to my blog? If you haven't had an invitation to 'team blogging' on SIBOL, would you like to email me sueatpigsty@talktalk.net.  I do hope this will be fun for all of us.
Anyway, I hope we can all have some fun, thank you for accepting my invitation.
Hugs Suex
