'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.

Squares from France! /New Challenges announced 21st April.

Good afternoon to you all!

Sunny Squares arrive today from France.  rose-marguerite thank you so much.  It's really kind of you and they will match perfectly with our other 'sun' Squares.  I just can't wait to start putting them together now. I have to finsh something off first.

It's always nice to see what the Postie brings and  rose-marguerites' Squares are just fantastic for our Challenge.  So many thanks to you!  Your Squares are in the Slide Show now to the right of the screen. 

I have posted the Deadline Dates, Karin thought this might be a good idea.

May I ask something......When you send Squares could you please include
                                               Your Name
                                               Your Address
                                               Your email Address
                                               Your Blog if you have one.
                                               Your Internet Name (e.g. Mrs Twins)

When the Squares arrive I like to put them onto Flickr so everyone can see them. It's always nice to look at the patterns and colours of Squares.  Then I put them on to the two blogs 'SIBOL'  and 'Mrs Twins'.  It does take a lot of time, especially when things are going so.......slow! But it's nice. I enjoy taking the photos for you and 'showcasing' your Squares.

Everyone tells me how much they are enjoying 'SIBOL' and I would like to thank you all very much for visiting. I am so pleased I've now managed to get  hold of Rachana.  She's joined us over on Flickr and I'm still waiting for L. Dalius.  I have a problem sending an email back to you. Sorry there is nothing I can do now unless you sort your end out, or join Flickr and send me a Flickr mail.

Have a good day everyone! Happy Crocheting/Knitting!
