'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.

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations SIBOLETTES!! We are featured in 'Inside Crochet' Issue 24. I'm so proud!

I am just the proudest person out! Congratulations to all of my SIBOLETTES! Why? Read on....

Today I picked up my copy of Inside Crochet Issue No. 24. I am really pleased because on page 11 there is a fantastic write up about our Group! Not only does it mention our work for the Elderly in Nursing Homes but also a great photograph of our Olympic Squares!  I am terribly proud of you all, what a great Group we have!

Our SIBOL Group has been featured on page 11. Great photos of our Olympic Squares too! Thank you all so much!

If you would like to read the article please click on the photo. It will take you to Flickr. You then have the option 'Actions'. Go to 'Sizes'. The photo will be enlarged even more! Thank you!
I really do hope this article will generate lots of Olympic Squares from anyone reading Inside Crochet!

I am just the happiest person today! Thanks to you all as I said I am so...proud of you all!

  2. Sue,
    How thrilling to see this in this magazine. I am so pleased for you. Glad to be just one tiny part of it. This will make me smile all day!

  3. Goodness and love...it's what you're all about! Sue, this is just a small bit of all the notoriety your efforts deserve. It's a wonderful community of givers - and you do a stellar job of holding (and molding) it all together and driving the force. Congrats! Hugs, Annette

  4. Sue, you're doing great work!
    Wonderful article in a wonderful magazine!

  5. Awesome! I'm so glad to see that you were recognized for your great work.

    I just saw that Inside Crochet is now accepting nominations for "best craft blog" to give recognitions to bloggers this year. What a great magazine.
