'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 UK and 'Let's go back to the beginning!'

Hi Everyone!

I have to thank bonsall (UK) for these gorgeous Crocheted Squares. Don't they have a lovely pattern,  very textured!  I love the colour of the yarn and I love the pattern. Thank you so much!

How are you getting on with the new Flickr sharing facility? I do hope I get used to it. I don't really know why they have changed it. It seemed to work okay to me.

Today we are going back to the beginning of SIBOL. Have you got five minutes? I thought I would show you the first set of SIBOL Squares.  When I first of all put the idea out to my friends who visited 'Mrs Twins' and also Flickr land I was amazed because everyone thought my idea was a good one. The Squares started coming in first from America our dear friend Molly.  I originally thought of making 6 Blankets, and now we have finished 59 with two special ones, the Friendship Blanket and also the Royal Wedding Blanket which I haven't shown you yet! 'A weekend Ta - Dah!' I think.....

We've done pretty well between us.

Now have you made yourself a cup of tea/coffee?

Here's my first set of SIBOL Squares that came in. The only thing is the Slide Show runs the wrong way round. I haven't mastered how to change it yet.  I don't know whether you have the time right now, you can always pop back! 

Thanks for visiting SIBOL today and thanks bonsall!
