'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.

Hello Ladies

I just thought that I would say Hi and introduce myself to you all as Sue invited me to join the team and I was more than happy to. I live near Knaresborough in a small rural village with my family.  http://www.lallylou-lou.blogspot.com/
I started to crochet over 12 years ago when my son was born. I stumbled upon Sues blog last week and now here I am. I have only really been blogging since January and still expected to be talking to myself (do that a lot)However I have met so many lovely, kind and nurturing people from all over the world and I am amazed and thrilled. Anyway the reason why I am here today is to show my efforts towards the project.
This is such a great idea and one to which I am delighted to contribute. Having been involved in many a charity in the past I know how hard it can be and how much work it can take. I have contributed 4 squares (so far, I will do more promise) but Sue, you put them all together and that takes a huge effort. So I am glad to be part of this wonderful community.
