'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.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 18! The Third Flower Blanket. 'Ring a Posies' - named by manda's challenges! Thank you!

Hello Everyone!

Well we've had lots of rain showers here in the UK. At this very moment as I am chatting to you we have a sunny period but it's breezy. I've been outside nevertheless in between showers to try and take some photos for you.

I have finished SIBOL No. 18. Now this is the third of the Flower Blankets. It is always such a happy moment for me when I can show you one of the Blankets. I just long to get outside and take some photos for you. Today is no exception. I have trouble getting them on to the Slide Show today it's been running so slow. I have days like this with the provider and it is so annoying.....

I also have had lots of Squares come in today.  I'm just doing a quick thank you now as I'm doing this post, but I am to email you shortly. So if you see this before you get the mail. Thank you! 

I'm very pleased to say Wanda, Anne, Margaret, Sabiha, and Diane I have received Squares from you this morning and I will be contacting you this afternoon. I was just doing the post on here when the Squares have arrived so if you could bear with me. I will be writing personally to thank you. This is just in case you see it before. But be assured I will be writing. Thank you all so very much.

I've really enjoyed receiving the Flower Squares but I still have more Flower Blankets to do, so if you have sent me Flower Squares 'please bear with me'.  I wish I could put everyones Squares into one Blanket. Well I suppose I could but it would be massive!

I say this many times on my blog...But I couldn't do this with out you. I appreciate each Square so much! So 'Thank You!'.  Well here goes 'Flower Blanket No. 3 SIBOL No. 18 and we need a name please!
