'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.

Wednesday's Squares from the UK!

Hello Everyone!

It's so nice to be popping in to say hello to you all!
I'm very pleased today to show you some gorgeous Squares which have come in from the UK.
I would very much like to thank K2tog on the (MSE Forum) for making the Squares for SIBOL.
Very much appreciated!
The MSE Forum 'Knit a Square' do a tremendous amount of Charity work and it's always lovely
when the Ladies on there help SIBOL out, so thank you!

K2tog - I have made you your very own Slide Show, so make yourself a cuppa and have a look at
your beautiful Squares. Thanks again!

I'm sure everyone enjoyed them. 

Yesterday I spent the afternoon sorting my Squares out. What a great time I had. I wanted to know
how many (if any) Flower theme Blankets there were left to do.  I am just letting you know that I will be
able to get another two Flower theme Blankets out within the next couple of weeks hopefully.  Then I
will start on the 'Blue and White' theme.  There aren't so many 'Strawberries and Cream'. That doesn't
mean I won't be able to make many of them! There just aren't so many as the 'Blue and Whites'.

Please look over to the right at the Challenges and have a go if you wish. Of course I do accept any Squares
as long as they are 6" they don't have to be part of the Challenges.

Anyway, I am off to do a bit of Laundry 'again' and then on to my favourite thing which is a bit of 'hooky!'.

Have a lovely day everyone! Thanks for visiting SIBOL.


  1. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to seeing the blue and white blankets and trying to spot my squares. In fact. I'm ridiculously excited about it.

  2. Well you wont have to wait much longer! I am trying to get these Flower ones done as quick as I can. I need a change now too. I have so enjoyed making these Flower Blankets, each one so different. I had 6 'Sun' themed Blankets to do. I've now done 7 'Flower' themed ones with another 2. I've nearly finished assembling no.8. It won't take me long. Then I'll crack on with the last one.
    I know everyone loves to see their Squares! Your Squares will be in the first 'Blue and White' Blanket promise you 'The Girl!'.

  3. Very pretty squares Ms K2tog. Way to go! My favorite is the black and white. It reminds me of a sunflower. Sue, it really amazes with the number of flower squares you have received. Have a wonderful time in your garden.

  4. Nice and different colors.I like all of them.Beautiful squares.Congrats !!!
    Wishing you all a nice weekend.

  5. Great selection of squares K2tog.

    Looking forward to seeing the remaining flower blankets and the new themed ones.
