'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.

It's not me!

Hi Everyone!

The Deadline for the 'sun' themed Blanket is 21st April. Remember we are making the 'Sunniest Sunshine Blanket ever!'.  Mind you I think 'The Citrus Blanket of Love' is quite sunny don't you! But I shall be making a brighter one than that so get your sunglasses out!

I just wanted to share this picture with you.  Valerie very kindly emailed me today.  She saw this picture in one of her Vintage Crocheting books.  The lady reminds me of 'me' sitting there with hook in hand crocheting away!  She's covered her Afghan in Roses!  Now Luna made a beautiful Flower Square the other day and we have been chatting about making a Flower Blanket.  What do you think Ladies? I'd be grateful of some comments!

Isn't this Blanket just so beautiful.  I bet we could make a really pretty one!

I'd be grateful of your comments, whether you think it's a good idea or not.

I'm really grateful to Valerie for showing me this, and I'm really happy to share it with you!
