'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.

Squares fly in from the States and Netherlands on a Saturday!

Good Morning Everyone!

Lots of Squares to show you today!

I'm very excited because I have two beautiful sets of Squares from the States and Netherlands today, from our friends akarapacha (RAV)  (USA) and Fiona (Netherlands).  Both Ladies have taken part in our Snowman Challenge.

First of all akarapacha (USA) thank you so much for these gorgeous Snowman Squares. I absolutely love them as I told you in  my email today. We certainly are going to have a great variety of Snowman from around the World. I am just so surprised that they have not all melted during that long journey! Your Snowman are just lovely.  I particularly love the Hat and Scarf you have made. Both set on Blue Backgrounds I just love.  Thank you so very much.

Let's take a look at akarapachas' Squares today!

akarapacha (USA) Your Squares have arrived today!

I have made you a Slide Show because I want Ladies visiting SIBOL to take a closer look at them.

I'm sure you will agree they are lovely Squares! Thank you so much akarapacha!

The next set of Squares have come in from Fiona in the Netherlands. Not only did Fiona make Snowman Squares and Squares for our Stash she also made beautiful Butterflies and sent me a donation of Ribbon too! How very kind! Thank you so much.

Fiona (Netherlands) Your Squares have arrived today! Thank you!

Your Snowman Squares are gorgeous too Fiona, how cute they are! I love the sparkling stars too what a nice idea! What a clever way of sewing onto the double crochet Square to make the Snowman. I had quite a surprise this morning with all these SIBOL Goodies thank you very much.

I've made you a Slide Show too Fiona! Sit back and enjoy!

  1. Dear Sue,
    These are all so lovely! Do you feel like a little girl at Christmas opening a box when the postman comes?

  2. These are all so beautiful and I'm sure will bring lots of enjoyment to the recipient.

  3. Oh definitely Kay! Thank you!
