'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.

Grannies from the UK!

Hello Everyone!! !

Well thanks so much for all the great comments on Flickr and the website with regard to the Royal Wedding Blanket. I'm so pleased you liked it.  We certainly had lots of fun on this Challenge!  Thank you all so much for the great variety of Squares I loved everyone and it was such  a treat receiving them.

What fun I've had with these Squares! Such variety! 'Please add your note!'

If you click on the Blanket you can see who made them and for all the Ladies who haven't used 'add note' on Flickr please use the option and add your name to the Square you made!

Today I would like to show you some pretty Granny Squares that I have received from Anne in the UK.  She has sent me 20 Squares and they are just the prettiest colours.  They really are a treat! Thank you so much Anne I love them.

Anne (UK) Your Squares arrived today! Thank You!

If you want to see a close up of the Squares sit back and enjoy Anne's Slide Show!

If you are interested in any of our other Challenges, The 'Farmyard' Challenge is still open until the end of April, and also The 'Spring Challenge'.  All details are over on our SIBOL Challenge web site.

I'm hopefully going to finish off the Jan Eaton (2) Blanket towards the end of the week, and also a Flower Blanket that I am working on. I do hope you will pop back to SIBOL and have a look!

Thanks again everyone
