'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.

Challenge Squares arrive today from the UK!

Good Morning Everyone!

Well I do hope everyone visiting 'SIBOL' today has had a pleasant Christmas. It's so nice to have Squares coming back in after the Christmas festivities! I have family still at home until after the New Year so I am just doing what I have to do here on SIBOL until we are back to 'normal'.

I would very much like to thank joyce28 for the gorgeous Squares which have arrived today. I always feel like a 'School Teacher' when I set my Challenges. I wonder whether they will be interesting for you, whether you will like them. But there is never any need to worry because you all take them on board so......well!

joyce28 - Your Squares arrived today! Thank you!

joyce 28 has sent me a fantastic selection of Squares. I do hope you will just sit for a few minutes and view the Slide Show. It is so much easier for me to make a Slide Show when there are a lot of Squares arriving from one person.  joyce 28 has had a go at all the Challenges and I am always amazed at the talent she shows!

I would like you to take a look at the 'Your Local Landscape' Square she has made. This is the view that she sees when she is at work. The buildings in London. What a fantastic idea!  I would very much like to plug this Challenge because I do need the Squares in pretty quickly  for this one. Please visit our Challenge Blog.   If you would like to have a go at making one or maybe two I would be very happy to accept your Squares. This Blanket will be sent off to Jersey to the Textile Showcase event taking place next  year. It will be put on exhibition and then sold by the organiser Pat to raise funds for Mencap. Please take part!......

joyce 28 I can never thank you enough for these Squares. They simply are fantastic.  Great Squares for our Olympic Challenge, Irish Rose, One Heart From Around The World, Jan Eaton Challenge, Musical Challenge, Faces, Owl, and Landscape. OOh, please take a look at these Squares. Here I am babbling on about them, I want you to take a look at them! They are just superb!
