'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.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 72

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL No. 72 'Spring Challenge' (2)

Good Evening Everyone!

I didn't think I would be popping back so quickly. I made an earlier post.

This afternoon I was tidying up those loose ends and I'm very pleased to be telling you that I have a Ta - Dah! for you! 

As you will know I have been assembling the Spring Squares. Blanket 2 has just been finished.  Thank you all so much for the gorgeous Squares for this Challenge.  I'm sure you will agree the Squares have all been superb! What fun they have been! Such a fantastic variety of colours and designs. Each one so different.  It's been a pleasure to make the Blankets up in this Challenge.  Puppet Lady thank you for the Braid, it's so pretty. Many thanks to Chalky 75 for the gorgeous Flowers hanging and also to Anakat for her sweet Butterflies. (saved me a job!)

Here's the second Blanket in this Challenge.

SIBOL 'Spring Blanket (2)

and to remind you of the first.

SIBOL 'Spring Blanket' (1)

I've been out in the garden this afternoon, it was so warm and sunny. Quite humid in fact, but that didn't stop me from taking some photos. I'm sure you will want to see them.  Sit back and enjoy my Slide Show.  Still no Butterflies I'm afraid. I'm waiting for my friend Adam over in the States to sort out the technical problems over there.  'They are working on it  I have personally been assured!'.  I told him how important our Butterflies are to our Group!  Let's hope it's not too long before I can put them in my Slide Shows again. I do miss them fluttering.......

Thank you to everyone that has sent in Squares for this Challenge.  I am still waiting for Squares to come in for the Jan Eaton Challenge. May I have them now please? Thank you!

Have a lovely evening everyone and to my friends in the States I do hope you are having a good July 4th!


  1. What stunning throws Sue! The squares are lovely, each and everyone, and your edging is just beautiful. It's 87 degrees here F. and we'll be grilling our flank steak for our July 4th supper. Hope you are having a great day.
