'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 Singapore and 'The Royal Wedding Challenge'.

Hi Everyone!

It's such a dark, wet miserable day here today in the UK.  I've been trying to take some photographs for you because I received some Squares from arien156 (Singapore) just before lunch.  The Squares are just lovely, I hope they are not too dark for you.

arien156 has sent me quite a few Squares this morning. She has been  busy with our SIBOL Challenges.  I want you to have a look at them now.  She's made Squares for our Two Tone Green Granny Challenge, Jan Eaton, Circle of Friends, Farmyard Challenge, Spring Challenge amazing!

What cute ideas for the Spring Challenges, a little Birdie and a Beautiful Butterfly! I love them. Now the Farmyard ones are really original. She has made the Squares in colours of the Corn, Grass and Wheat! What brilliant ideas! 

'Circle of Friends' (Top) 'Spring Challenge' Butterly and Birdie! Gorgeous Squares arien156! Don't you just love these Squares! :)

Now I am waiting for a few more Jan Eatons to come in, so if you haven't sent them, would you do so now please?  Also a couple of Circle of Friends I am still waiting for thank you!

arien156 is in charge of our Ravelry Group SIBOL and I would like to take this opportunity of thanking her for her hard work.  Shes a very good 'Secretary!' Uploads our Blankets and Squares over there for me, I am so grateful to you! The button is at the top of the web site. Please pop over to have a chat with us over there.

arien156 thank you for the gorgeous Squares, take a break from Ravelry now and enjoy your Slide Show!

If you are popping across from MSE please take a look at our Royal Wedding Challenge. It's on the previous post and it's also mentioned over on SIBOL Challenges. Closing date for Squares is 18th March. They MUST be here by then, so I can make the Blanket up ready to send off.  We are going ahead with this idea, let's see how we get on! Thank you.

Thanks for visiting SIBOL today.
