'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.

Fab Squares on a Saturday!

Good Afternoon everyone!

I've actually had three postal deliveries today on a Saturday can you believe that? There was one important one, the early one. I received two large parcels and yes it was like Christmas all over again!

Unfortunately, I'm going to keep you all in suspense. I am not even going to show you the brown paper that they came in. All I am going to say is that our 100th SIBOL has been completed by Craftymizz and our SIBOLETTES and I'm afraid you will have to wait until next Wednesday when I do my Grand, yes I said 'Grand' Ta - dah!

I would like to thank Craftymizz for designing our 100th SIBOL, and for co-ordinating the project. I know she has enjoyed it and so have the other Ladies who sent Squares for it. I'm absolutely over the moon today and I've actually had tears in my eyes because it is just so beautiful and quite an achievement too. So please come and visit SIBOL on Wednesday next.

I bet you are wondering what was in the other parcel! Well I would like to thank Mrs. Neighbour (London) for sending me 70 beautiful Knitted Squares.
These Squares are just so pretty. She saw an article about 'SIBOL' in 'Knit Today' and she was telling me how terribly pleased she was to be able to use these odd bits of yarn up. That's what SIBOL is all about, 'using those odd bits of yarn up!'. We can all find such a use for them.

I'm sure you will agree these Squares are 'amazing' and I would like to thank her very much. I actually don't think she is on-line but 'thank you' anyway!

Mrs. Neighbour (UK) Wow! 70 beautiful Knitted Squares arrive this morning! Thank you so much!

So if you have odd bits of yarn sitting in your basket, please think of SIBOL.

I've had such a lot of fun with Mr. Twins this afternoon. We have been outside 'playing!'. You will see on Wednesday. Oh what fun I have with my hubby! he.he.....

Well I think that is all for today. I will leave you with the second part of our 'recap' of SIBOL.

I'm off to enjoy some more of our UK sunshine today, thanks for visiting SIBOL!
