'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.

Busy Friday! Squares from the UK and The Netherlands.

Hello Everyone!

I'm back again. I did do an early morning post showing Squares from Manda's challenge and also Maytaurus but I've had post come at lunchtime today, so I'm back to show you the three sets I've received.

First of all I want to show you Squares from Jean Nock (UK). The squares are just so pretty.  Pastel colours mainly which are my favourite along with Squares for our 'Black and White' Challenge and also the Mens. But of course the Black and White could be used for the Men, couldn't they?   We are going to have some lovely Mens' Blankets.

Jean Nock (UK) Your Squares have arrived today! Thank You!

Those are the pastel coloured ones and in the Slide Show you will also see the Mens' Squares. Thank you so much and I am pleased you are enjoying SIBOL so much!

Lovely weren't they?

Now the next set of Squares have come in from Anja in The Netherlands.  She has made three Squares which will be lovely for our Christmas Challenge. I love the Squares, I love the patterns, I love the colours. I am so pleased you too are enjoying SIBOL Anja! Thank you for sending them to me, I appreciate them very much.

Anja (Netherlands) Your Squares arrived today! Thank You!

Did you enjoy seeing your Squares Anja?

The last set I have to show you have come in from Seakay on the MSE Knit a Square Forum here in the UK. The Ladies work very hard on there Knitting and Crocheting for  different Charities.  I am so grateful to Seakay and other Ladies on there for helping me out too.  Seakay has sent me two Squares for our 'Christmas Challenge' and two for the 'Mens' Challenge.  Perfect Squares I just love them and thank you  so much for the note Seakay!

Pretty Squares for our 'Christmas Challenge'...........>
