'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 Netherlands.

Good afternoon everyone!

Thank you for visiting SIBOL this afternoon.

I am very pleased to welcome 'Marianne' from the Netherlands to our Group.  You are now one of our famous 'SIBOLETTES' Marianne!

Marianne has very kindly sent SIBOL two lots of gorgeous Squares. I can see she has been reading the SIBOL CHALLENGE web site because she has made Squares for our 'Winter Wonderland' Challenge which are purely white Squares and she has also sent some Squares for  the 'Grow me a Garden' Challenge.
I particularly love the shade of Green she has used in the Flower Squares.

I had doubts initially about doing a Winter Wonderland Blanket, but it's really nice to see such variety of patterns coming in for this one. 

Look at these different patterns for our 'Winter Wonderland' Challenge, gorgeous Squares!

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.

Thank you so much Marianne, I really do appreciate your help and I am so pleased you enjoyed doing them.

May I thank everyone for your wonderful support over the last couple of days, I cannot thank you enough.

Well I'm off now to enjoy the Sunshine. It's so hot this afternoon here in the UK!

Enjoy your weekend. I'll chat again tomorrow if I have any more Squares arrive and thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today.

Joyce you were enquiring about the Flags for the Olympic Blanket.  Yes of course feel free to make Flags of other Countries if you want to, that would be lovely! As long as the Country is  taking part in the Olympic Games that would be wonderful! Thank you very much.

Have a good weekend! x
