'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.

Hi Everyone,

Firstly I would like to thank Sue for inviting me to write a blog post here. I think Sue's idea of the Sunshine International Blankets of Love is a wonderful idea. Not only is it providing such a great service it is a lovely way for us all to meet others from all around the world.

My name is Jenny, I live in Cambridgeshire in the UK. I have 3 grown up children, the youngest two are boy/girl twins. I am also the proud Grandmother to my 2 grandsons.

I love crochet and am finding the internet a great way to get inspiration, I seem to be getting more ideas than I have time available, though I'm sure that can be said for us all! It was only yesterday that I plucked up the courage to start my own blog and now today I am guest blogging here, boy things move fast around here!

Anyway enough about me, here are the squares I have made for the Blue and White challenge.

I made them using the pattern for the 'Trip around the world granny' from the book 50 Sensational Crochet Afghans & Throws. I posted them to Sue this morning so hopefully she will get them in the next few days.

Before I go I would just like to thank Sue for all her hard work in organising all this and putting together such lovely blankets from the wonderful squares she receives.

Bye for now
