'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.

Introducing SIBOL No.21! (Flower Theme 6) - Information about Challenges.

Good Morning!

I hope everyone are having a good weekend.  Welcome to SIBOL if you are a new Follower! Pleased to say hello to you.

I'm introducing yet another SIBOL today! Number 21. (Flower theme 6).  I bet you are wondering how many more 'Flower Blankets?'.  I can't believe the amount of Flower Squares I had come in. They have all been so beautiful and I thank you all so much!  There is definitely going to be a No 7. After that we will have to see.

'Introducing you to SIBOL No. 21, and I wonder if anyone can think of  a good name for it please?

Fun in my Conservatory with SIBOL No. 21!

I hope you enjoyed looking at the Slide Show.


I have one more Challenge for this year. I'm hoping to fit it in. As I am going to be busy getting the Blankets ready to deliver in November.

'Bonfire/5th November Squares'
Bright, Colourful, Sparkly,
Full of Colour Explosion!
(Limit of 2 Squares)
Deadline 31st September.

I would like your opinion Ladies. When do you start your Christmas Crafting? I think myself from September onwards Ladies will be busy making Christmas Gifts for Family and Friends. This is why I thought the Bonfire Challenge would be the last Challenge for this year. I would like to know what you think. I have to try and get the Blankets ready to be delivered in November and the last ones assembled.  So this would give me time to catch up with myself. It's certainly been a great Year for my SIBOL project and I've had such a wicked time!

If anyone has ideas for new Challenges for 2011. I would be most grateful if you could leave a comment or email me sueatpigsty@talktalk.net.  I would then make a note of them and see what we can do for next year. That's if everyone still wants to do the Squares. I know I still want to make the Blankets.

Thanks to all for popping in to SIBOL.
