'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 from the UK and The Netherlands. 'Make me a Flag Olympic Challenge!'.

Hi Everyone!

Boy, am I pleased Blogger is back. Let's hope it stays 'back' now! I do hate it when I can't get round my favorite blogs.....

I hope you are okay, thanks for visiting SIBOL today.

I would like to show you some Squares that have come in from Jean Nock. Jean your Squares are once again beautiful. There are two Knitted Squares amongst the ones which she sent and they are just lovely. I think the one will be perfect for 'Grow me a Garden' Challenge.

Gorgeous Knitted Squares! I think a 'Grow me a Garden one! bonsall what do you think?

Such a fantastic variety of Squares, and beautiful colours, thank you so much. I love them all.  I've made you a Slide Show I hope you enjoy looking at your Squares.

I am at present working on a Blue and pink Blanket and then I am going to start the Spring or Farmyard Challenge blankets. I can't wait.

Can I remind you if you are visiting from another Country apart from the UK. We are going to make a special 'Olympic Blanket for 2012' and I am starting to collect Squares for this particular Challenge, although it is a long way off.  I would like to get as many different Flags in the Blanket  as I can. So if you have Friends on blogs, or you would like to make one yourself I would be delighted to receive them Knitted or Crocheted.  6" Squares (15cms x 15cms).  Of course their own Country has to be taking part in the Games.

Sue - sueatpigsty@talktalk.net for my address.

Please spread the word around about my special Challenge, ' the more the merrier!  Why not write a post on your blog! Our special Challenge is on our SIBOL CHALLENGE web site.

I'm pleased our SIBOL Swap is now under way, and I hope the Ladies have some fun this month, swapping their Squares and small Gifts.  Why not put your name down for next month?  Over on Ravelry.

I think that's all for now Ladies, thanks so much for visiting me today!
Have a good weekend, it's Bank Holiday here 'again'. So a nice long weekend!

I'm popping in to show you some gorgeous Squares that have arrived from the Netherlands. Thank you so much Hieke!  It's really lovely of you to send so many Squares for SIBOL.

Looking tejidos squares and send you and observing the blanquet you have in the header of the blog, I realized that so that they can assemble the pieces to weave and embroider you have to get around and more fill me with wonder, recognizing, Sue is a great job that you make, so I end up amazing, more and understanding your labor of love! God bless you! Rose Marie
