'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.

Look what came in the mail today!

I am sooooo pleased to be included in this fantastic group.

It came with a lovely letter from that great lady, Sue,
  and her choice of stationery was sooooo symbolic!

People joining hands around the world in friendship !

Well done Sue
You are terrific !!


PS. Hope to have learnt how to do some Granny squares soon .


  1. Hello Helen,
    Well I'm so pleased you receive your 'Thank You' card and letter.
    I actually remember walking into the shop and seeing this paper. I think the Shop was closing down, but nevertheless the paper was really expensive. I bought one pack containing only about 10 sheets.
    Always quite worried about using it because I loved it so...much. Then after getting my Thank you cards printed from Vistaprint I thought why not run some copies off using the Stationery. So this is what I did. I suppose 10 years ago I wasn't so computer literate. Well I know for a fact I wasn't!
    Anyway I thought I'd write a little letter to each of you and enclosing it with the Card.
    So...I am so glad I found a use for it, and how appropriate it is!.
    'People joining hands around the world in Friendship'. Umm...I like that. I wonder if I could find a use for that......
    You are most welcome Helen! and 'THANK YOU!'

  2. Wow, that's wonderful, isn't it?

  3. Hi Helsie: Thanks for the great post. That stationery is perfect to receive from Sue!

  4. I've now put it at the bottom of the blog.
    'People joining hands around the world in Friendship! isn't that just lovely!
