'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.

Challenge Squares arrive from the Netherlands!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I think you had better put the kettle on while visiting 'SIBOL' this afternoon. I have had quite a lot of Challenge Squares arrive from dear Hieke in the Netherlands.  She has been the busiest Lady ever during the Christmas run up period! For today I have received the most beautiful Squares for our Challenges, I would like you to take a look at them!

I will post a photo of all the Squares and then I think you had better sit back and enjoy our Slide Show. Hieke has really taken on our SIBOL Challenges and the Squares that have come in for these Challenges are simply amazing! Golly I am sitting here at the lap top  saying Wow! Wow! Wow!

What wonderful ideas you have Hieke and I can't wait to show everyone!  Let's take a look now!

Hieke (Netherlands) Wow! What a lot of Challenge Squares! Thank you!

Please have a look at the 'Your Local Landscape' Squares Hieke has sent in. She wrote on her mail the following for you to read,

"In the square with the view from my window, you see the stone tiles and the wooden jetty (I don’t know the English word, it is the place for our little boat, but the boat is not in the square).

What I see from my window is my garden (with green hedge, gray tiles and brown jetty (?), then the Schie (a river/canal in Rotterdam) and then the road, tree and houses on the other side of the Schie canal.

'Your Local Landscape' Challenge.

I told you they were good! Let's take a closer look now in the Slide Show.

Thank you so much for the Squares Hieke, I am sure everyone loves them as much as I do! I'm sure they will give everyone inspiration to have a go themselves!

I will be working for SIBOL right up until the last post has been on Christmas Eve morning so if any more Squares come in before Christmas I will be posting them! Thanks to everyone especially you Hieke today!
