'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.

The Big '70!'

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 70

Good Evening Everyone!

Well today I can say that we have now made 70 'Sunshine Blankets!'.  Absolutely amazing!  Thank you to everyone that has contributed Squares over the months. 

So....I have my 70th Ta - Dah! for you.  I am very happy to present the 'Farm Yard Blanket'. SIBOL No.70!

This Blanket has such a variety of Squares from Farmyard animals to the Colours of the Field.  We even have Tractors!  It's absolutely fascinating to see what you Ladies come up with when I invite you to join my Challenges!  I hope you enjoyed taking part in this one.  I certainly enjoyed putting it together.

I'm going  to start the Spring Blankets now.  There will be two of them, so I hope it won't be long before I can Ta - Dah those for you too! 

So now let's see those beautiful Squares of yours!  Any names for this Blanket? I am open to suggestions.

Please 'add note' if you see your Square!

Thanks once again to everyone that has sent me Squares for this Challenge, they are absolutely superb, I love them, thank you!
