'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. 73 - 'Endless Summer Flowers'.

I'm just loving the colours in this Blanket.

Good Evening Everyone!

I'm very happy to be showing you my 73rd Ta - Dah this evening.  It's called 'Endless Summer Flowers' and has been named by Marilyn. Thank you!   I've been trying to get some decent photos outside, but it's rather difficult when the sun is belting down on our 'south facing' patio. It was so hot
out there today.  So I went back out there about 5 o'clock to try again.

Thank you to everyone that has contributed Squares for this Blanket. I have thoroughly enjoyed making it up. I still get such a buzz even though I've made so many! I just love the colours in this Blanket. I have tried to use the same colours in the border  as in Maree's Flower Squares which are the two Squares each side of the middle Square. They are my favourite colours and actually the same ones in the throw I made a while back in my Conservatory.

Thanks to everyone that has contributed Squares for this Blanket. 'Please add note' if you see your own Square.

If you see your Square click on this photo and pop over to Flickr. I would love you to 'add note' on your Square!

I hope you like it. The Squares were amazing! I appreciate each and every one of them thank you!

The ribbon was supplied by Puppet Lady.
The Flowers by Chalky 75.
The Butterflies by Anakat.
The Squares by you, thank you!

Bye for now thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!

  1. Your 73rd blanket! And what a beauty it is. Anybody seeing your squares here, well-done!
    Sue, you are an artist to put these squares together and put that border around it.
    Well-done you!

  2. Very pretty Sue!

    I have some (4) squares for the watermelon challenge all done and packaged up for you; just need to make a trip to the post office (hopefully by the end of the week). :-)
