'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.

New Squares

Hi Everybody!

I'm Laura and have been writing my blog Domestic Doris since January this year.

I've enjoyed knitting for a few years now (although still only learning!) but decided that I would like to learn crochet after seeing Lucy's blog and being inspired by the colours and patterns.  That was about 8 months ago and am really enjoying crochet and have just finished my first blanket, which I wanted to make for my 18 month old daughter.

Over time I have also discovered many others' blogs and have admired their crochet skills.  Having seen how generous and creative everybody in this wonderful blogging community was I wanted to make a contribution to Sue's SIBOL project, albeit a very small one!  I hope that as time goes on I'll be able to make some more squares to send, but for now I did a couple of extra ones whilst making my blanket:

Sue, I'll be popping these in the post to you tomorrow - I will email to confirm when they've gone.  Once again, I would like to say "WELL DONE!" to all who have contributed to this fabulous project so far - especially Sue whose hard work truly has been an inspiration to me and I'm sure to countless others.



  1. Hi Laura, the squares are lovely. I saw your blanket on your blog and love it.

  2. Hi Laura,
    Thank you so much for 'team blogging' with us. I am so pleased you've joined us on SIBOL.
    It's so nice to have new friends join us.

    Laura I'm sure everyone will agree your squares are just lovely. They are so pretty. I too have seen your blanket on your blog and I do hope followers of SIBOL will pop over to your blog.

    I agree there are some really lovely people in our Crafting community. They are always very eager to share new patterns and ideas and that's the fun of SIBOL too. A lot of people check in every day to see what's new!.

    Thank you so much for your contribution. I will let you know as soon as they arrive,
    thank you and please 'team blog' again with us!

    Hugs Suex
