'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.

'A special SIBOL Square!

Hello Everyone!

Another wet miserable day here in the UK today.  Nevermind....

Here are some pretty Squares.... Now there is a Story behind one of these Squares.  ATheeC (Flickr) (Tinka) was inspired to pick up her Crocheting hook after 15  years when she found the SIBOL Blog, simply amazing!
Her two Daughters started watching her and asked her to teach them.  Well...I am so pleased to be showing you a Square which ATheeC's younger Daughter has made.  I am absolutely over the moon.  I have several 'Mothers and Daughters' who crochet for SIBOL and I just think that is so nice. ATheeC's other Daughter is left-handed.  Kate is back off holiday now so I  am sure she would be able to give you some good advice if you need it.   Here is her Daughters contribution to SIBOL!

There is a lovely story behind this Square. See below.

Isn't it just so good! Thank you so much.  I am very pleased to say you are now a 'SIBOLETTE!'.

I am of course most grateful for  ATheeC's Squares too! They are gorgeous.  Look how she has labelled all these gorgeous Squares.  Our labelling seems to be taking off I think.  This does help me when I'm sorting the Squares out and makes it so much easier!  Wonderful Squares for our Challenges.  All fantastic. ATheeC also made her very first 'African Flower' Square. Thanks to the Diagram pattern of pertinitaco!

I would also like to show you the beautiful handmade card that ATheeC sent to me. Isn't it just lovely? Strange it's all blue and white!

I do hope you will both enjoy your very own Slide Show now. Thank you to both of you.

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.

Have a good day!

P.S. Thank you to our 200th Follower Today! Welcome! and of course our other ones too!
