'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! Squares and Squares from three different countries....... Sit back and enjoy the Slide Shows......

Hi Everyone!

Well it's certainly been a very interesting week for me.  You've been sending me the most beautiful Squares. First of all Pertinitaco (Flickr)  in Spain. She has made gorgeous Squares for the 'Blue and White' Challenge.  She's used some textured yarn.  I 'think' it's called ''eyelash' yarn.  On Monday I was reading my regular mail from Rachel's Crochet Spot She was doing an article on using 'eyelash' yarn which I found terribly interesting.  If you want to pop over to her please do I have given you the link. As you know my Husband bought me some last week and I know it is a bit tricky to work with, so her tips were quite useful.

Thank you so much  Pertinitaco   for the Squares.  Pertinitaco  is a regular contributor to SIBOL and she really enjoys the Challenges. Particularly looking forward to the 'Strawberry and Cream' one which is coming up. By this we mean Squares in the colour of 'Strawberries and Cream!'. Yummy!!!

Here's your Slide Show Pertinitaco.  I hope you enjoy it. Sit back everyone and just take a look at Pertinitacos' Squares!

I have also had some really pretty Squares come in from one of our 'team bloggers' Louise.  Louise very often makes us Squares and I am most grateful to her.  She loves Crocheting and today I am showing you her 'Blue and White' Squares.  Four Squares in the most beautiful patterns.   As I have said many times before I just love this combination.  I have found today it was better to take some photos inside the house as well because it is so bright and hot outside. The photos weren't coming out particularly well.  I do hope you enjoy Louises' Slide Show. The Squares have come from Gibraltar.

Thanks Louise.

I'm very happy to tell you we have a new 'team blogger' on board  SIBOL.  Welcome Isolde! Isolde is absolutely loving  SIBOL.  She's been working very hard trying out new patterns for our  SIBOL  Squares! She has written her own 'team blog' and I do hope you'll go back a couple of posts to read it. She has detailed pattern information for you. Here's Isoldes' Squares on her Slide Show, thank you for brilliant colourful Squares!

Many thanks Pertinitaco,  Louise and Isolde.  Your Squares are wonderful, I love them all.
I am most grateful to you all. Thank you.
