'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 on Saturday from Valerie (UK) and Vers Cythere (France).

I'm very pleased to say Valeries' Squares arrived today. Valerie lives in Kent in the UK. She has tried the Flower Square that Luna put up. She tells me the Square is called 'Framed Flower' (page 23) from a book by Melody Griffiths called '201 Crochet motifs blocks, projects and ideas'. If you look on Amazon there are loads of reviews about it. They are all good reviews  too says Valerie. It's got unusual Squares in there, a lamb, tiger, sheep, fish, trees, lacey motifs.  Really lovely things and ideas. It is in English terminology and it also has charts. Sounds really good. Valerie said the book is cheaper to buy on The Book Depositry site for £8.00 with free p + p which sounds really good value.

The other Square she used is a circle from 99 Flower Motifs Leisure Arts and has added a Granny pattern and a little flower.

Valerie came back to me with this information and I'm sure it will be useful to a lot of readers.

Valerie often crochets for 'Knit-A-Square' charity. This is a wonderful charity for Aids orphans in South Africa. I'm very pleased she has taken some time out to make us some Squares for the 'SIBOL' Project.

You can see Valeries' Squares in the Slide Show. Thank you so much for sending them to me and I'm pleased they arrived safely!

Valerie from Kent UK. Your Squares arrived today! Thank you so much they are gorgeous!

I also received some Squares from France this morning a Lady called Vers Cythere. I was very pleased because she gave 'SIBOL'  a great write up on her blog. I hope you will visit her. She sent some really colourful Squares for our 'sun' themed Blanket.  She's asking her Friends if they would like to take part. I hope everyone else would like to spread the word by 'grabbing our button!'.  Thank you so much Vers Cythere and I'm grateful for your help.

Vers Cythere sent me these lovely Squares this morning! Across the water from France. Thank you so much!
