'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.

The making of a SIBOL Square for our 'Landscape Challenge'

Hi Everyone!

No Squares to show you today, no Blankets to show you either today, but.........a great Blog post to read. It's not a SIBOL post either! The Blog post belongs to Gemma who very kindly sent me a Square recently for our 'Your Local Landscape' Challenge.

You know I am extremely grateful to everyone that sends me Squares for our SIBOL Blankets, but for me this post is extra-special. Gemma has very kindly written a post explaining how she made her special Landscape Square. You really want to fly over to Gemma's Blog because this post is wonderful.  She not only shows us the making of the Square but she tells us how she uses Excel to create her stitch diagram! This really is very interesting indeed. From my point of view it's nice for me to see how our SIBOLETTES work!

So here's the link please go and have a look at how Gemma makes this.....

Gemma - you have made a gorgeous 'Landscape Square' Thank you so much!
