'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.
I NO LONGER ACCEPT KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES. I DO HOWEVER ACCEPT MADE UP BLANKETS FOR THE ELDERLY IN CARE HOMES. I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO RECEIVE YOURS! THANK YOU!

Sunshine wishes from across the miles.....(5th Sept) 'Newbie on The Block' (4th Sept).

I am so pleased to be invited by Sue to add a post to SIBOL.  Thank you Sue!

Everyone has worked so diligently in making and donating the squares that have been transformed into a "one of a kind" gift that will be delivered by our tireless leader Sue.  The delivery dates are just around the corner and I was thinking that any SIBOLETTES who are interested might write a note or card about herself and mail it to Sue to include in the parcels.

I know from visiting relatives over the years who reside in nursing homes how they adore sharing with their friends the cards, letters, postcards and photographs they receive.  A small note with some details about yourself, where you live and how you came to make the squares might make this project even more special.

Another idea might be to simply pick up a postcard from your area and write a short note.  It would be really fun to see all of the postcards from so many far away places.

If you are interested, please contact Sue at sueatpigsty@talktalk.net  The deadline is Friday, October 8, 2010.  With your submission, kindly include your name, address, email, blog site or Flickr name.

Thank you SIBOL Sisters!


  1. This is a really good idea Linda Thanks for suggesting it.
    Lets hope our SIBOLETTES will join in the fun!

    Please everyone go back and read Charlottes post too! I have had an idea you might be interested in.

  2. Linda, I love this idea, how awesome. Yes, I am in, I have a few squares ready to post so will get them together this week and post a card as well. Thanks for this wonderful idea.
