'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.

Done it again!!!!!!!

Hi Everyone!

Well SIBOL has definitely gone 'GLOBAL' today!! I'm so...pleased.  I sent an email to 'Crochet Today' about SIBOL months ago! I was replying to a Charity article they had written Well.....Dutzie over on Flickr has just sent me a Flickr mail to say that they have printed my letter.   I was trying to get that 'Star Letter' once again, but once again I didn't quite make it!!! It doesn't matter though, I'm pleased they've printed the Letter.

It mentions I had made '17 Blankets!'. I know that seems just ages ago!!!! Well we've definitely moved on from there! 53 now.  OOh, how exciting!!! I shall have to wait for W.H. Smith to receive their copies they are always much later.

OOh Dutzie thank you for telling me and also roomontheleft, very much appreciated.
