'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.

A surprise for SIBOL!!!!!!! Good News! Good News!' / Updated....Squares from UK!

Hi Everyone!

Just popping in quickly to tell you some good news!

On Friday I was approached by Yahoo! I know Yahoo!
This is what they wrote to me......

Hi Sue,

Hope you don't mind me contacting you, I’ve sent you this message on Flickr Mail too.

I work on the PR team for Yahoo! UK (which I'm sure you're aware Flickr is part of), and we're setting up a group called The People's Royal Wedding Album, which we hope will capture what people are doing for the upcoming Royal Wedding.

We came across the photo you've uploaded of your Royal Wedding Blanket -

We think it's absolutely brilliant, and wondered whether you would mind us using it to promote the group? Unlike normal groups, our group will feature a creative header banner, much like the banner on this one -

We'd like to use your photo for the banner. Obviously it will be credited, and there will be links through to both the original photo and your profile, so it should be good promotion for your pictures and ultimately your blog.

The group will be promoted through national UK press, as well as on the official Flickr blog, and possibly across the Yahoo! UK site too.

Hope to hear from you soon as we would like to launch the group very soon!

Best regards,
Ian McKee
Social Media Account Manager

It's gone live today! Pop and have a look! Thanks SIBOLETTES!


I also had some really pretty Squares come in today from Pippa S. (UK).  Pippa has sent 'Bright Flower' Jan Eaton (51) for our Challenge.  There are a few blocks still available. Pop over to SIBOL RAV Group if you want to join us!

Jan Eaton (51) 'Bright Flower'. Gorgeous Square Pippa thank you!

Pippa your Jan Eaton Square is gorgeous. Beautiful bright colours for this Square, so pretty!  The other Flower Squares too will be brilliant for SIBOL, many thanks to you! I'm sure everyone loves them!

Great Flower Squares for SIBOL. Thank you so much!

Well done everyone! We've had a fantastic day with 'Yahoo' today - thank you and we've also received lovely Squares from Pippa, what could be nicer!

Bye for now
