'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 and the States today!

Good afternoon Everyone!

Thank you for visiting SIBOL on this wet afternoon in the UK.  Too wet today to go outside to take photos I'm afraid..... So I've taken some indoors with my iphone because for some reason I can't find my camera! How can I have the camera memory card on the Kitchen Table with no sign of the camera it baffles me!  I also have one of my 'Miss Twins' at home so I'm limited for time these next few weeks.  We did have a wicked time yesterday, we went for a make-over and photo shoot. So when I get the photos back I will put them on my 'Mrs Twins' blog for you to have a look at.  We had a fantastic time.  Getting back to SIBOL.....

Today the post has been busy from the Netherlands. I have had two lots of Squares arrive from Diemie and Marianne.  Also Squares from Heather in the States, thank you all so much!

First of all Heather has sent in Squares for our Watermelon Challenge.  Squares are gorgeous Heather, thank you.  She has used colours which remind her of the fruits. I'm sure you will want to see them now.

Heather (USA) Your Squares have arrived thank you!

Let's have a closer look in Heather's Slide Show!

I'm sorry I couldn't go outside today!

Thank you for the gorgeous Squares Diemie!

Thirdly, I have Squares from Marianne in the Netherlands.

Another beautiful set of interesting Squares.

Marianne (Netherlands) Your Squares have arrived! Thank you!

A grey and pink set of Squares which are a fantastic colour combination  I'm sure you will agree. Two Squares for our 'Textured Challenge', A Dutch Flag for our Olympic Blanket and a Flower Square made in the colours of the Dutch Flag.  Here's your Slide Show Marianne. I love your Squares thank you so much.

Until next time, bye for now
