'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.

Lots of Squares on Saturday and an Award!

Hi Everyone!

Are you having a nice Saturday? The weather has been lovely again. I've been busy with the family or I would have got these Squares on earlier.

May I first thank 'Alhana' for our Sunshine Award! She is very kindly offering 'SIBOL' a group blog award for all the hard work we do making Granny Squares for the Blankets for the Elderly.  It really is very thoughtful of you Alhana and on behalf of 'SIBOL' group members a 'BIG THANK YOU!'

BrendaS2 has very kindly sent me some gorgeous Squares today. Now if you go over to Flickr I have posted them over there and BrendaS2 has very kindly given me details about the Squares.  A lot of Ladies ask about the Squares and it's always so nice to have a reference for them.  If you have any other queries BrendaS2 (Flickr) I'm sure would only be too pleased to help or offer advice. She's brilliant at Squares and has tried quite a few different ones for 'SIBOL'.  I have known BrendaS2 for a long time and she's such a helpful friend to me. Thank you BrendaS2!  Here's just one of the Squares, the others will be over in the Slide Show! So please take a look over there!

Now I had some Squares come in from Spain this morning.  I would like to thank  Sonieta for her wonderful help. She's made some brightly coloured Squares for 'SIBOL' and I am really most grateful to her.  She also enclosed  a tiny little Friendship Square for me! Isn't this just so cute! It means such a lot to me Sonieta, so thank you very much  and indeed for the 'SIBOL' Squares.

Here's the Friendship Square, so delicate and beautiful!

'A little Friendship Square' from cosetespetites! Thank you so much! She enclosed it with her 'SIBOL' Squares! Thank you!

Thank you so much to both Ladies who sent me Squares this morning, I can't thank you enough. I'm sure everyone will enjoy looking at your Squares in the Slide Show!  If you want to see Sonietas' Squares please pop over to Flickr. But of course you don't have to do that they are here over to the right.

Bye for now,
Have a lovely evening and I'm off to crochet!
