'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.

More Challenge Squares!

Good Evening Everyone!

I'm very pleased indeed to be showing you some Squares which Emma 'personally hand-delivered!' just a short while ago. I was sorting out my wool and a knock came to the door and it was Emma.

Emma (UK) Thank you for your Squares!

Emma has very kindly made a 'M' for the Olympic Blanket. It has come out beautifully! I love it. If you would like to make a Letter for our Olympic Challenge, there are still some Letters left. Please email me
Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net if anyone else wants to have a go. We are doing a centre-piece for our special Olympic Blanket and I'm gathering Letter Squares!  'O L Y M P I C S   L O N D O N   2 0 1 2'.

 Please follow the link to read about the Letters.

I also received a gorgeous Flower Square from Emma. This was the Square that Luna was putting up on her blog. Emma has made a wonderful job, it is so pretty. If you would like to have a go at this one, please follow the link once again.

Luna has made a wonderful tutorial with great instructions and pictures.

Simple Squares from the 'Knit Today' magazine have been very popular too. Emma has made two Squares from the pattern I emailed her. If you would like a go please email me Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net
and I will send the pattern by attachment. It is a fun pattern and Emma has used a great combination of colours to make the Square. I am sure you will agree it's so pretty.

It was so nice to meet Emma this afternoon. I quickly showed her one of our Blankets and she also looked at my  Crocheting in the Conservatory. She said it was weird 'being here' after seeing my home on my web site! Her Husband was waiting for her so she couldn't really stop but I hope she pops back and has a cup of tea with me.

I really love all your Squares Emma and it was so nice to meet you.

I have made you a Slide Show Emma. You have donated beautiful Squares to SIBOL, thank you so much.

I'm sure the Ladies visiting SIBOL will love Emmas' Squares!

Bye for now
