'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.

Vintage Patchwork Crocheted Blanket

Hi Everyone,

Beautiful day here again in the UK.

Valerie very kindly sent me this picture over on email. It's out of a Vintage Crocheting Book and it's a beautiful Patchwork Crocheted Blanket.  It's lovely although we don't think it's as nice as the one she sent the other day. The Rose Afghan. Take a look at it anyway.

I'm getting a lot of enquiries from France. Thank you so much Vers Cythere Please check her blog out. She has an article on 'SIBOL'  a few posts back.

Here's the picture. Thank you Valerie.  I'd be really interested if anyone has any Vintage Crocheting Books they'd like to tell us about! Thanks.
