'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 78!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

First of all could I say there is plenty to see this week on SIBOL. Lots of beautiful Squares and beautiful Blankets too! Would you mind going back previous posts because I wouldn't want you to miss anything.

Today I have another Ta - Dah!  A few weeks ago I received beautiful Watermelon Squares from wiLDaBoUtCoLoR in Louisiana (USA).

Aren't they simply beautiful! Mind you the yarn makes a difference too! Don't you just have great yarn over in the States!

Now if you know the work of wiLDaBoUtCoLoR you will know that she has just gone bonkers on 'Watermelons'.  You name it, she has made it. Her work is simply amazing, a beautiful crocheter and she has a  wicked imagination! Would you like to see some of her work? Follow the link. Well when she suggested
SIBOL has a Watermelon Challenge, I had no idea at first what she had in mind. Soon after I received the Squares and then that's where my Challenge started. I had to make a 'Sunshine Blanket' out of them, which was such an honour!

Well Sunday evening late I finished the Blanket and now it's time to show you!

wiLDaBoUtCoLoR Thank you for these Squares! I had so...much fun putting them together! I do hope you like it!

I had such fun putting this together and the Red Heart yarn which wiLDaBoUtCoLoR sent for me to use was great. I made some SIBOL Butterflies 'slightly different this time' using some yarn wrapped around the middle which I thought was nice for a change.

I do hope you like it wiLDaBoUtCoLoR! Thank you so much for your kindness! Can you imagine someone receiving this Blanket, wow!

Thank you all for the lovely comments your support is very much appreciated and I am so pleased you enjoy visiting SIBOL.  OOh, just to say I had a lady enquire this morning about the Butterflies. If you would like to have a go please go to

Bye for now
