'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!

Ta - Dah! Ta - Dah! Ta - Dah!

Hello Everyone!

We are still having holidays here in the UK.  OOh, it will be nice to get back into our usual routines!  I've been so busy today trying to do a mamouth tidy up after Christmas and it's so difficult with everyone still at home.  I've tried to come on here but it has been difficult.

 I know Brenda and Amanda have been working on the Friendship Square and I would like to say a big thank you! Also too to Steph and Jenny for their thoughts.  If you'd like to pop to 'Sibol-The Archive' they have some ideas too.

Yes I know the Circle of Friends Square is 8" on the pattern, but Karin assures me that it is possible to get it to 6".  Just trying different hooks and yarn I'm sure it is possible. Do you remember Karins beautiful Square a while back.

 What I don't want though is you having to go out and buy special yarn to make this Square so that it gets down to size.

Can we just hold on please and let's see what Amanda comes up with., She has been working on the Square this afternoon. I will keep you posted.

My Challenges will be announced 1st January.

I haven't had much chance to come on the computer over the holidays but I have been crocheting. I know I was going to take a break, BUT I just can't! Do you want to see the latest Blankets?  Thanks to everyone that has sent me Squares for these. They are just so pretty!

So I have three Ta - Dah's for you! Here goes....
