'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.

Hello Everyone!

I am very pleased to be showing you today SIBOL No. 59!  I know one off 60! Golly, what a lot of 'Sunshine Blankets' we have made between us.  Thank you Renee for the name. 'All Tidy and Cosy!'.

On July 23rd last year I received 25 Squares from 'jean nock' here in the UK.

Beautiful Colours on these Squares great for our 'Men!'.

25 'Grandad' Squares for our Elderly Gentlemen on SIBOL!....>

25 'Grandad' Squares from Marion (UK) Thank you so much for your help Marion!

The Squares have been patiently waiting for me to put them together. I thought at the time they would be great for a Man's Blanket. I really love these Squares thank you 'jean nock' and I do hope you like your Blanket!

I just love these Squares for the men.

and here's your very own Slide Show! Thank you!

I also have some pretty Granny Squares to show you. These Squares arrived yesterday  from Jean in the UK,  but I had an extremely busy day yesterday and didn't have time to post them. I'm sure you will agree these Squares have lovely colour combinations and I just love them. Thanks so much Jean. I appreciate you helping me.

Jean (UK) Your Squares have arrived!

Nothing like the good old Granny! Such beautiful Squares, thank you Jean.

Thank you for visiting SIBOL today.
