'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.

Mondays Squares 'Royal Wedding Challenge! France and UK!

Good Morning Everyone!

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on 'Ceila's Happiness' SIBOL No.58.  I'm pleased you liked it.

Today I would like to thank eclectic gipsyland (France) for two beautiful Knitted Squares.  She noticed over on Flickr that we was in the process of doing this special Challenge and I'm so pleased that she's taken part. She is a new 'SIBOLETTE' and I'm really pleased she has joined our Group!

The Squares are absolutely gorgeous! Wonderful ideas and I just love them.

I told you they were nice.

Sit back eclectic gipsyland here's your SIBOL Slide Show! Enjoy!

Thank you!

bonsall has very kindly sent me some more Royal Wedding Squares and I just think these are so 'creative!'
What a wonderful idea to crochet William and Kate! This blanket is certainly going to be interesting with all the different Squares to look at.  Absolutely gorgeous bonsall and I'm so pleased you have been taking part in our Challenges.

Beautiful Squares thank you bonsall, thank you eclectic gipsyland!

May I remind you that the closing date for Aishwarya' swap over on Ravelry is tomorrow. So if you are interested in a Square Swap please pop over. I'm sure she'd love to have you join in! You have to sign up by tomorrow. Button for Ravelry is at the top of the web site.

May I also say March 18th is nearly here. Please get your Royal Wedding Squares in very quickly now. I shall start crocheting them up very soon now.

I'm so pleased everyone likes the 'Circle of Friends' Blanket.  I'm still waiting for one Square to come in from Australia for this Challenge.

We still have the Spring and Farmyard Challenges running and of course I accept Granny Squares of any colour or indeed any other pattern and Flower Squares too.  For my address email me sueatpigsty@talktalk.net
