'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.

'The Garden Bell sends us 'sunny' Squares!

Hello to you all!

Welcome to 'SIBOL' if you are a new Follower! We are always pleased to greet new friends!

Our deadline for the 'sun' themed Blankets is 21st April. Just to say really that if any Squares are late arriving they will be used! I would like to say thank you to everyone who has found the time to make a Square or two, or three or four or 'more!' :) They have all been so bright and sunny just what we need to cheer us all up!

'The Garden Bells' Squares are no exception, just look at the sunny colours she has used in them. They arrived yesterday and I have been longing to show you all but my internet speed is only working at 2% which is really slow and it's taking a long time for that 'little green bar' to get to where it should be! Sometimes I have to give up. This morning I just let it run while doing my chores so I have managed to get the new Squares loaded up for you all to see.

Here's Squares from 'The Garden Bell' and thank you so....much Kate for the package the Squares are beautiful!

'The Garden Bells' Squares meet the '7' SIBOLS!.

Please have a look at 'The Garden Bells' Squares in the Slide Show!


  1. Good Morning !!! They are so beautiful .I like the idea plus mixing colors like that.beautiful "Graden Bell".

  2. Thanks.... Glad they got there in lighting speed this week. Now, get those seeds that came along in the ground...te-he....

  3. Stunning..squares from Kate at the Garden Bell. The color combinations are wonderful.
    Just think..Kate dyes the yarn herself and creates that kaleidoscope of colors. They will be a wonderful addition to the blankets. Have fun Sue!

  4. Kate's are lovely! Her colors are so beautiful - I bet she dyed the yarn herself. Now how does she find the time to do all that?...I'm retired and can't.
