'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 the Netherlands!

Good Afternoon,

We have a really warm day here in the UK today! Doesn't a little sunshine make you feel good!
It's so lovely to feel the warmth on your face as you walk outside and to be able to go outside without your
coat on is just wonderful!

Well I've had some wonderful Squares come in today from the Netherlands.  We have a new 'SIBOLETTE' Ladies, I am welcoming 'Hieke'.  I am so pleased you have joined our Group. 

Hieke has very kindly sent me three Squares today. One is for the Royal Wedding Blanket and the other two are for the 'two tone Green 'any pattern' Challenge which has actually now finished, but I haven't made the Blanket up yet.

So many thanks Hieke!  I'm so pleased you are interested in SIBOL.

Square for our Royal Wedding Challenge! I love this pretty Square thank you hieke!

Such a pretty Square for our special Blanket Hieke thank you. I have made you a Slide Show now so sit back and enjoy!

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.

I'm sure you will agree these are lovely Squares.

I have said before,   please don't worry if you are just setting out learning Knitting or indeed Crocheting.  I accept Squares from Beginners or more advanced.  If you feel 'SIBOL' is worthy of your time I would be very happy to accept your Squares.  Lots of Ladies feel a little intimidated because they see such beautiful Squares on SIBOL, and they think their Squares 'aren't good enough!'.  Well this certainly is not the case.
So please don't worry. 

I'm plodding on with the Royal Wedding Blanket, still waiting for Squares to come in, the last few.  I will keep you infiormed of my progress.  I am still waiting for the Jan Eaton from Australia.

Well I hope you are enjoying the day whatever the weather is!  Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' and taking an interest in our project.
