'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.

Squares from the Netherlands

Good Morning Everyone!

Well this morning we are covered in that white stuff.  I suppose it was expected we had been listening to the weather forecast.   My Garden was covered with a thin layering of snow this morning

 but that didn't stop me from having a walk outside with Saskia from Crafty Valley.  Saskia very kindly sent me some beautiful Squares this morning for SIBOL.  They are so pretty, brightly coloured I just love them.

You know when you are a SIBOLETTE, when your Squares have a rest on my bench outside.

Saskia made such beautiful Squares for SIBOL and I most grateful to her.

I'm over the moon too this morning because guess what I won 'another' Blog Giveaway. I must be going through a Lucky streak in Blogland, because today I had this come in the post. One of Saskia's beautiful bags.  Her crocheting is absolutely gorgeous. Do you want to see? The colours are superb.

Isn't it lovely? Thank you Saskia. Please pop over to her blog and say hello to her.

Saskia welcome to SIBOL, you are officially one of our 'SIBOLETTES!'.  Now sit back and enjoy your Slide Show.
