'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.

Message from the 'Queen of SIBOL!'

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Well before we carry on, I have a few words to say.....

Please go to Flickr!

What fun!

I tried putting my message on here, but the music is drowning me out. Click on the link and visit me on Flickr! Go through the stream too and please 'add note' on your Square. The Blanket hanging on the tree!  Most important!

I have to say thanks to everyone that has contributed the most beautiful Squares especially for our  'Royal Wedding'  Blanket. I've had a ball  making these Squares up. It was such an enjoyable Challenge!

I  received such a variety of Squares and it was just so...interesting to see what you all came up with. We've had  Doves, Wedding Bells, Hearts, Westminster Abbey, Hearts, Initials to name a few. It always amazes me that when I put a Challenge out to you, you take everything on board and really use your imagination! The Squares have arrived from all over the World, as far as the States and Canada, Europe and Australia! Lots of places in between Belgium, France, the Netherlands. Simply wonderful how we have all come together for this marvellous Challenge.  The power of the internet!
I do hope you enjoy looking at the video on Flickr and I hope you like the Blanket.


What fun I've had with these Squares! Such variety!

and here's my special Slide Show! Sit back and enjoy and once again thank you!

We've had a bit of fun today! Thanks so much for visiting 'SIBOL!'
