'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.

Squares from Canada and the UK! Thank you!

Hi Everyone!
Thank you for visiting SIBOL today!

I'm very happy to be showing you two lots of Squares today!
Firstly Bonnie in Canada, your Squares arrived this morning. Thank you so much for taking part in the SIBOL Project. Your Squares are gorgeous I just love the bright colours you've used. I'm sure
everyone will agree the colour combinations on all of them are really nice. I just couldn't wait to get
 outside and take my usual photographs.

I wonder if you could contact me I can't put my hands on your email address at the moment and I desperately want to thank you personally. sueatpigsty@talktalk.net

Here's your Slide Show,

I would also like to thank Pippa.S from the (MSE  Forum) here in the UK. Pippa.S. sent me some really pretty Squares today and I am most grateful. I have actually got one of her Flower Squares in my 'Flower Power' Blanket. (2nd Row down, 2nd Square in from the left side).   Photograph of the latest Blanket will be under Pippas' Slide Show. Sit back and enjoy Pippa! Thank you very much for helping me!

Here's the latest  SIBOL. 'Flower Power!'.

25 Different Friends in this Blanket.

I know I say it all the time, but I am so...grateful for all the Squares that come in to me. With out your help I couldn't get the quantity of Blankets made. I'm so excited still after making 15 Blankets. I get such a buzz receiving your Squares knowing that everyone has gone to such a lot of trouble for me. I know everyone that visits SIBOL  loves looking at the new Squares that's why I like to showcase them for you. We learn by looking at each others, getting inspiration. It's such great fun! Thanks to everyone who has contributed Squares or even for visiting 'SIBOL' Thank you!

Have a good weekend everyone, I'm off for a meal it's our Wedding Anniversary today. 27 years!

Bye.... Hugs  Sue x


  1. Wow, yet more stunning squares. Well done ladies. Sue, Happy Anniversary to you and Mr Twins, have a lovely meal.

  2. Hi, These blankets are brilliant!! I am new to crochet, my mother-in-law taught me about 6 months ago. I recognise some of these square patterns from a book she recently got me. Well done for all your efforts putting these together they look amazing! I am sure everyone who receives a finished blanket will treasure it!
    My mother-in-law Linda also does a similar thing so i will let her know about your fantastic blog!

  3. Happy belated Anniversary, Sue to you and hubby.
