'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.

I'm up-dating you on SIBOL CHALLENGES!

I'm really updating you on my position here with SIBOL.

Thank you so much for taking part in my 'SIBOL Challenges'.

We have had the most beautiful Squares arrive for our Challenges. Now it is time for me to finish making the Blankets up. I now want to get as many made up as I can ready for October/November delivery.

I hope you will understand that I need to finish these particular Blankets before I can do more. New Challenge ideas would be welcome on Ravelry Discussion.

I know it's hard not having Challenges. I know everyone wants me to start some new ones. I do too, but I must get these Blankets finished first.

But....Good News Ladies we still have a few running.

I have had to close now 'Textured Blankets' early because we have enough for a Blanket.

I still do need Squares for 'Watermelon' Challenge if you want to make any.
6" Crocheted or Knitted Squares with 'Watermelon' in mind.
So it could be the colours of a Watermelon or indeed a Picture Square.

I also need 'Two of A Kind' Squares.
6" Crocheted or Knitted Squares with two of something Knitted or Crocheted on.
eg. Two birds, Two cats, Two pears!
I'm sure you can think of something.

I also need Squares for our 'Knit Today' Blanket which I am hoping to do.

The magazine were asking their readers to make Squares for 'maybe' our Charity! How wonderful is that! I'm so...pleased!

Please email me and I will email you the pattern. It would be so nice if we could get
a Blanket made up and send a photo off  to Knit Today!

I am really low on Squares for this one. Are you interested? I hope so.

I have been notified of a Pattern Error please follow the link to RAV.

Even better News!

Luna has very kindly devised a Square for 'SIBOL'.


Isn't it lovely?
If you would like to follow the link and visit her Blog, she is giving instructions on how to make the Square.
It's a beautiful Flower Square with a Granny.
Now I am proposing to make up a 'SIBOL' Blanket with Luna's Square, so please join in and follow the link.
Please Label your Square 'Luna's Blanket'.
Try and make your Square 6" please.

Thank you Luna for making this Square for 'SIBOL'.
This is a nice project to be going on with, while I am making the Blankets up.

We still require Squares for our 'Olympic Blanket' so please go over to SIBOL CHALLENGES and read about that one.

No Squares today, so I thought I would take the opportunity of up-dating you. So you see we do have some work to be carrying on with. It would really help me if I could get enough Squares for these particular Blankets. I am short at the moment, after reviewing them this afternoon.

Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' and thanks to everyone for taking part in our Challenges.
