'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.

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to all our new SIBOL Followers, it's nice to have you visit us!

I'm so happy today to be showing you our '37th Ta - Dah!'.  925 Squares 37 Blankets. I'm counting to the big 1000! I reckon that will be the 40th Blanket. Only 3 more!

Thank you all so very much for the gorgeous Christmas Squares. They have been amazing! I have just finished the second of the Christmas Blankets and I have one more to make up in this Challenge. This Blanket has lots of Snowflakes, Wreaths, Christmas Trees, Stripes and it even has a Bell! It  has been such a lot of fun. I do hope you like it.

Everyone has worked so hard with their Christmas Squares I do hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have! Thank You!


I've popped into SIBOL this morning to be showing you some wonderful Squares that have come all the way from Canada.  Clara has very kindly sent me some gorgeous Granny Squares.  The colours are really nice. Ice Blue, White and Brown make beautiful Granny or actually 'Grandad' Squares.  They would be ideal for our Mens Blankets. 

She also sent me a Red, Green and White Granny Square this will be ideal for our Christmas Blanket, and it has arrived as we say in the UK 'just in the  nick of time!' ha.ha.  I am due to start the last of the Christmas Blankets this afternoon, so it will be a pleasure to fit your Square in Clara.

Thank you so much  for the Squares I shall definitely be finding a place for all of them. I am most grateful to you and I'm very pleased to be welcoming you to SIBOL.  You are now 'officially' one of our 'SIBOLETTES!'. 

Sit back Clara with a cup of tea/coffee and have a look at your very own Slide Show!

A hint to everyone else is that you can always just do one here and there and they will add up and then simply pop them into the mail. Sue, your Christmas blankets will make so many people happy. Thanks for your kindness to others.
