'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 on Tuesday

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a nice holiday. I'm just popping in to say I have deleted the posts on making a 'Circle of Friends' Blanket for the Elderly.  I didn't realise that this Square is coming in at 8" which is too big for our SIBOL Blankets.

We are currently trying to make the same Square smaller, so if we are successful we will announce it again. We was going to ask that everyone sends just one Square using this pattern.  I think I got rather excited on Christmas Eve when Marilyn 'roomontheleft' suggested we make a Blanket 'as you do!' But I didn't realise at the time that it was that big. But I suppose it all depends too on what yarn you use.

Would you mind if we 'hold fire' on this one? I'll let you know soon thank you.

Sorry this is short.....
Bye for now.
