'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.

Hi Everyone!

We've had a miserable day here in the UK today. Raining on and off most of the day. But something really cheered me up........Two packages arrived from Rebekka_uk (Flickr). What was inside? .......................

50 Squares!

Wow! Was I amazed!

I was so touched by Rebekka_uk's kindness. She had sent me all these Squares for our SIBOL Project! When I first started this project back in January I only EVER expected one Square.  But to send me 50, I was so overcome!

Rebekka_uk enclosed 50 Squares altogether, 25 Purple and 25 Green. Split into 8 Daisy Flowers, 2 African Flowers, 16 Poppy Flowers and 24 Granny Squares.  She also said I could really do what I wanted with them. Whether I wanted to split them and use them individually or make 2 Blankets.  Well what do you  think I will be doing with them? You've guessed correctly. If it's okay with her I shall make 2 Blankets.  She even referred me to Flickr to see the Layout she suggested.  So not much hard work for me on this one.

Rebekka_uk loves Crocheting as we all do, and I'm so pleased she has enjoyed making them for SIBOL.

I would like to now 'showcase' Rebekka_uk's gorgeous Squares. I  hope you enjoy looking at them.  Thank you so very much.

Aren't they just lovely? Such pretty Colours and pretty patterns. Have a good evening everyone and thanks for visiting SIBOL.
