'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 UK ! /Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 51 'Black and White Challenge' 3/4 'Zebra Candy!'

Thank you all so much for your Black and White Squares!

Hello Everyone!

I always get terribly excited when I have a new Ta - Dah for you.  Today I am posting the third of the 'Black and White' Challenge.  I have one more in this set to show you which is going to be slightly different.

May I thank everyone for the gorgeous Black and White Squares that I have received.  It's always such an absolute pleasure to receive your Squares. Interesting to see which pattern you come up and how indeed I can place them in the Blankets.  Funny really, because I plan and plan them. It's only when they are absolutely finished I think, golly I wish I had put that Square there, or I wish I had put that Square there. If you know what I mean.  The Squares look so different when they are assembled and have the border crocheted around the edge.   I hope you like it. We've all enjoyed making the Squares, and I have certainly had fun making them into 'Sunshine Blankets'.

Thank you to all that have contributed Squares for SIBOL. 'Please add note!' Thank You!

Here's the Slide Show for SIBOL No. 51, any name for this one? I know it's difficult they are all pretty much the same.

Thanks Ellen for naming the Blanket 'Zebra Candy!'

Squares today have come in from Ruth Marie please pop over to her blog and say hello!
Ruth has made a 'Circle of Friends' Square in beautiful colours..........
