'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 Story of 'SIBOL' No. 7. Thank you Damaris your Blanket is finished!

Hi Everyone!

Well it's Friday and the weekend is near. I do hope everyone has a good weekend. I'm so pleased to introduce you to 'SIBOL' NO. 7. Now back at the start of March I received some Squares from Damaris. Not just a couple of Squares but '25 Squares!' I know I was so chuffed....... Here's the stack.......

Damaris - Puerto Rico - Do you remember when your Squares arrived 8/3/10?  I stacked them by my Birdcage!  PLEASE FOLLOW THE PHOTOS!!  THE MAKING OF 'SIBOL' NO. 7 please read on..........

I showed them to you!

I played with them, I touched them.....Everyone admired them!

I planned the Blanket on the carpet.

I lay them on my Lounge Carpet and arranged them........

I started edging them and joining them together (My way)....

I played with them more...........

I crocheted the Border.......

I started the border..........

Finally here's my finished Blanket with lots of thanks to Damaris who sent me the 25 Squares! Would you like to name the Blanket Damaris!

I thought why not put my Bird Cage and Stork with your Blanket!

I have enjoyed making this Blanket so....much! I just love the pastel colours, the wool was so easy to work with. It was such a joy! Thank you so much Damaris.

Please look at your Slide Show now.
Have a good weekend everyone! Happy Crocheting! Why not join in the fun!
