'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!

Saturday Up-date

Hi Everyone!
Would you like to pop over to SIBOL CHALLENGES?
I'm letting you know how I am getting on with our Challenges.
PLEASE NOTE:-  A change now to the 'Two Tone Green Granny Square' Challenge.
If you are already in the process of making Two Tone Green Grannies please send them. If you haven't started please note there is now a change.
I had a few Squares which didn't quite fit into the above Challenge. So I have decided to put them in a second Blanket. It is now.....'Two Tone Green 'any pattern' Square.  But if you have/or are making the
Basic Two Tone Green Granny Square I will still accept them. This Blanket (2) will probably be a bit of  a
mixture to accomodate the ones that didn't quite fit into the Challenge.
Any queries please email me sueatpigsty@talktalk.net
Details about the other Challenges are on the SIBOL CHALLENGE web-site.
Thanks so much for visiting SIBOL today!


  1. Ooooops, I'm sure I started this by not reading the directions close enough.

  2. Me too!! You are not the only one GB!!!

  3. i thought of you...yesterday i took a knitting class for socks and signed up for a crochet class for a shawl :-)

    happy to see you today, my friend


  4. Hello Sue, I admire all of the blankets that I have seen over on Flickr. I live in the US in Tennessee. I am interested in starting a project like this for our local nursing homes. Some of my church friends are interested in joining me. Can you give me information as to how you started this project? What size are your finished blankets?

  5. I have mailed DiddleDaddleDesigns.
    If others would like to know the size of the Blankets. They roughly come in at 38"/39".
    Thanks for all your comments Ladies.
