'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.55. Squares from the UK!

Table view

Good Morning Everyone!

Friday has come around so quickly!!!! I've  had a busy week with the gorgeous Squares that have been coming my way!  Today I received Louises'  Squares for the Royal Wedding Challenge.  They are so lovely!! Some really beautiful Squares have arrived in the week for this Challenge and all I want to say is please.....keep them coming!   March 18th is the deadline for the Royal Wedding Challenge.

Louise has used the Union Jack on one Square and the other one she has a picture of a Crown.  But she has also sent some lovely Squares for the Farmyard Challenge and the Spring Challenge.  I'm sure you'll want to take a look, here goes......

lulabelle1967 Your Squares have arrived! Thank You!

Not only has Louise sent in Squares but she's also returned the Blanket that she kindly made up for me. I'm sure you 'll agree she has made a wonderful job, and the method of flat braiding the Squares together has worked out a treat!  Louise has chosen one of the names given by my visitors to SIBOL. Congratulations Renee, Louise has chosen your beautiful name 'Flowers for Florence'. Thank you!

Here is your Slide Show Louise, Enjoy!
