'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.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

It's so....cold here in the UK today....I'm freezing!  But I just popped out to the supermarket to see if the 'Let's Get Crafting!' magazine had hit the shelves and guess what!!!!!!

Yes, we've hit a mag again! OOh, I'm so excited.......

After I had delivered our 44 'Sunshine Blankets' to Nursing Homes in the UK. I wrote up to a couple of magazines, and I'm very happy to say......That SIBOL has been featured! 

I wrote up to 'The Write Stuff' to see if my letter would be the 'Star Letter' winning £50 worth of Hobby Craft vouchers.  Well I didn't quite make the 'Star Letter' nevermind but .......we've  had our SIBOL Letter printed and that's really important, isn't it?

When Mr. Twins comes home I'll ask him to scan the page (I don't know how with this new computer upstairs) and then I will show it to you! Not a good picture here, sorry.

Thank you all! The Blanket featured was 'Strawberry Fields'.
It's made my day.....Thank you SIBOLETTES.

No Squares today.....

Have a good weekend everyone!
