'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 Germany and the UK for the Olympics!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to 'SIBOL' today! 

Before I start my post, is anyone else having trouble with 'signing in and commenting' these last few days? Some blogs you can leave a comment, some you can't. I can't even leave a comment on my own blog. It is so annoying, and not at all reliable these days. So.....frustrating!

Today 'Germany' seems to be popular on SIBOL. I have had some Squares arrive from Crissi who lives in Germany. I am very pleased to be showing you her Squares today.  Crissi has made such a lot of beautiful Squares for SIBOL and I would like to share them with you.

Crissi has been working very hard for our 'Olympic Blanket' and she has made some lovely Squares in the colours of the German Flag. Now take a look at these beauties!

The Colours of the German Flag are superb for our 'Olympics Blanket'.

These too!

Perfect Squares Crissi! I think they will look great in our Olympics Blanket. Crissi has also made some more Squares for our 'Sunshine Blankets' and if you would like to have a look at them they are in Crissi's Slide Show coming up.

I love your Squares Crissi, thank you for sending them to me here in the UK and also thank you for everything else that was inside your box. Very much appreciated, thank you!

I am also very pleased to be telling you that Laura here in the UK sent some Squares to me this morning. One Square for our new Challenge 'Two Tone Blue' and also two Squares for our 'Olympic Blanket'.  One is a brilliant Olympic Torch and the other is the Flag of Germany so Crissi may be interested in looking at this one too!

I think they are fantastic too Laura, I'm so pleased you are enjoying our Challenges.  Laura in fact suggested doing a Two Tone Blue Blanket. She also has lots of other ideas for our Challenges but I think now we will have to get down the ones that we have running at the moment. But I will definitely keep them in mind.

Here are Laura's Olympic Squares and Two Tone Blue Square. Thank you so much for sending them in to me Laura, very much appreciated.

The Flag of Germany!

An Olympic Torch!

Your Slide Show Laura!

Thank you for visiting SIBOL today, I hope you enjoyed looking at the Squares.


  1. Hi Sue,
    I am very happy that you like the Grannys. You write, you can not comment on today, maybe I'm a help. Remove "Remember Me" on the hook, it helped me. I hope you understand me.
    Have a nice day and best regards

  2. Thank you Crissi I will try.

  3. These squares are wonderful.
    I'm trying to find inspiration for the Olympics....

  4. Good evening,
    Sue, you are presenting the images as beautiful, thank you
    good evening
