'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.

The Christmas Challenge is completed! Ta - Dah! ''Christmas Spirit' No. 38 3/3

Great Squares, great ideas, don't you think?

Hello Everyone!

It's always so nice to pop in and show you a new Ta - Dah!  But it is especially nice when another Challenge is completed.  Yes, that's right over the weekend I managed to start and finish another SIBOL. I am so pleased to be showing you the latest one. I do hope you like it.

May I thank Bev very much for the Crocheted Flowers and Christmas tree she sent middle of October. I am now very pleased to be hanging her Christmas tree on the latest SIBOL. It's Blue can you see it? Also thank you Aussie Maria for the latest name. 'Christmas Spirit'.  I think this is an appropriate name because we have some Angels on this blanket.

Bev thank you so much for the Christmas tree, simply gorgeous! Thanks everyone! I am so grateful to you all!

I have been so amazed at the Squares that came in for this Challenge.  You certainly did put your thinking caps on! We have had Snowflakes, Wreaths, Angels, Christmas Trees, Stripes, Grannies, Bells,  Christmas Bees, Stockings.  You name it, we've probably had it. Such fantastic Squares and it's been a pleasure to make them up for you. They have all been absolutely gorgeous whether they be Knitted or Crocheted. 'Thank You'  so much for taking the time and trouble to make them for SIBOL.

'Christmas Spirit' - Named by Aussie Maria. Ladies 'that dreaded question! Please Add Note!'

I am busy washing the Blankets now, and I aim to deliver our SIBOLS towards the end of November. I shall carry on assembling and see how many I manage to get ready.

May I welcome our new Followers, hi to you all and thanks so much everyone for visiting SIBOL today!

I'll leave you with the latest SIBOL Slide Show!
