'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!

What a lovely day it's turned out to be here in the UK.  Are you all looking forward to the Football? I went outside today in to the Garden and stuck some Flags into my baskets and containers.  I'm not really a Football fan but you do have to support your Country don't you?

Then when I came back in to the house I noticed the Postie had been.  There lying on the porch was a package. It was from Louise.  Louise is one of our 'team bloggers' I'm very happy to say and she sent me
some lovely, lovely Blue and White Squares.  I actually got the Squares out last night and played with them.
I had 72 Blue and White Squares last night, and another 5 today!  I just love to see all the different Squares that come in. I really do think Kim chose this theme well.  I think Louise has been trying out Lucy's striped Granny Square because I can see one there. A different variation to the usual Granny Square. Then I absolutely love when there are 4 Squares in a Square. Great fun!.

I've made Louise her own Slide Show to showcase her Squares.

Two days ago Louise emailed me to say that I had won a 'Giveaway!' because I was the person who had left the 100th comment. Wow! I was amazed! I have never won anything on anyones Blog before!  She sent me some balls of Wool/Yarn for the SIBOL project AND a beautiful little tissue cover with tissues and a tiny weeny little marker (can you see it?) for when you are Crocheting in rounds! So thank you so much Louise, that really is very nice of you.

Here's Louises' Squares, please sit back and enjoy and have a good weekend everyone!


  1. First, isn't your FOOTBALL, our SOCCER. Let's not get confused. Being from Chicago, where the HAWKS just won the Stanley Cup...yipeeeeee... now that's HOCKEY... FOOTBALL to Canadians, right.

    Totally love the Blue and White sqaures that have arrived. Never knew there were so many shade of BLUE.

    Have a great weekend all.

  2. More lovely squares, the blue and white blankets are going to look wonderful.
    Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the football.

  3. I recognize the patterns from 200 crochet blocks by Jan Eaton.
    These squares are stunning!
