'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.

Ta Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 53

Notice the Butterfly Squares!......>

Hi again Everyone!

I'm back quicker than what I thought........  I have a Ta - Dah for you! SIBOL No. 53, but first please don't forget to check out Pattyglorias' Squares and Bonsalls on the previous post. They simply are gorgeous!

I am very pleased to say that I have finished No. 53.  I love the colours in this Blanket.  These Squares were saved in my Mens Challenge pile, but I suppose it could be for a Lady too.  Men like brighter colours don't they?  I had great fun putting these Squares together. I loved the yarn I was working with so...much. The White yarn to edge them with was donated by itty_bitty. It was Caron (USA) such fun to work with. Thank You itty_bitty!

Here goes. SIBOL No. 53. 

'Please add note if you see your Square!'

I can't believe I've made over 50 'Sunshine Blankets' now!
Thanks to everyone that has kindly contributed Squares.

  7. Oooh I think this must be my new favourite.
    I love the colours and it just goes to show you can take a "plain" square and it looks SO GOOD with the others, just by choosing a special coloured wool. I always love the way you layout the squares, looks like it needs a name though. what about purple parade?

  8. Its Grape Jelly thank you Papillon Gold!
    Glad you liked your squares.
    Thanks to everyone that has contributed.
