'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 USA and UK for the Royal Wedding Challenge

Hello Everyone!

I'm so pleased that you have been supporting Aishwarya over on RAV SIBOL Group. She has been working extremely hard trying to get the first ever SIBOL Swap off the ground.  We also have some new topics over there if you'd care to join in the fun!

If you have any topics you'd like to post please feel free to do so.  The RAV button is at the top of the side bar.

Also thank you to everyone that has said how pleased they are that SIBOL got into the 'Inside Crochet' magazine this month.  I'm chuffed to pieces as you can imagine, and we have had enquiries from it. It was a great half page article. 

Well I've had some Squares come in this morning from Itty Bitty over in the USA!  She has sent me some gorgeous Flower Squares, I just love them.  She has also enclosed some Squares for the Royal Wedding Challenge.  I'm sure you will agree they are superb!

itty_bitty (USA) Your Squares arrived today! Thank You!

Flower Squares are always so useful to me. I just love them myself but the Ladies in the Nursing also liked them as you can imagine!

Here's your Slide Show itty_bitty and thank you so much for the Squares which arrived today!

I'd also like to thank Louise (UK) for her gorgeous Royal Wedding Squares. I just love the Royal Bunting! What a fabulous idea! Terrific. The Union Jack and a Wedding cake are such good ideas too. Thank you Louise.

I've been a little worried that we might not get an equal amount to make  a Blanket.  You know I usually put 25 Squares into a Blanket, so that's 5 Squares x 5 Squares.  Of course this Royal Wedding Blanket will be larger than my others, but I wanted to get an 'equal amount'.  So I thought I'd make a few more just in case.  I wanted somehow to incorporate the SIBOL Butterflies with a regal effect. I made these four Squares.

Mrs Twins (UK) I wanted to incorporate the SIBOL 'Butterfly' somehow but with a regal feel.

Thanks to everyone that sent in Squares today.  I'm off to sew in some ends now on the Blanket I am doing. I'm still hoping we get a few more Royal Wedding Squares in before the deadline. Thanks to you all.
