'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 fly in from California (USA) today!

Hi Everyone!
Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today! I hope you have had a good weekend.

First of all may I thank Luna for writing a post on SIBOL. It is so nice to see the Square which she has made for the  Olympic Challenge. It's absolutely superb! Please go back a post and have a look. I love it. I'm so looking forward to making our Olympic Blanket for next year. All details are on SIBOL CHALLENGES. Anyone is welcome to take part. Your Square is beautiful Luna, thank you for making it.

May I also thank Roberta from California (USA).  She has very kindly sent me in some great Squares today. They are so....pretty.  Beautiful Flower Squares and a selection of Squares in different patterns and a variety of colours too.  When you think these Squares have had such a long journey! Thousands of miles they have travelled to arrive at my home. I think they deserve a rest now before my hook starts working on them!

I want to show you the Flower Squares first.

Aren't they gorgeous? I love the colours of the Flowers.  We also have  Squares in a variety of colours and patterns which are just so pretty!

I just love the patterns on these Squares, and it's amazing how different they look with each colour used.

I am very grateful to you Roberta, I am so pleased you think our 'SIBOL' project worthwhile. I love your Squares and I'm sure our other Ladies will love them too!

Thank you for the Squares and the Slippers! :) I shall be putting them on this evening!

I am finishing off my Farmyard Blanket so I hope it won't be too long before I can show you.

Also this afternoon I visited a Care home, so tomorrow I will be very pleased to tell you all about my visit. I hope you can stop by!

Thanks to everyone for their emails and comments, I am so pleased you are enjoying our 'SIBOL' project.
