'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.
I NO LONGER ACCEPT KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES. I DO HOWEVER ACCEPT MADE UP BLANKETS FOR THE ELDERLY IN CARE HOMES. I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO RECEIVE YOURS! THANK YOU!

Olympic up-date and a Jan Eaton Square arrives!

Hi Everyone!

I am very pleased to be showing you a very pretty Jan Eaton Square. This is Block no.100 'Pastel Delight'. It has been made by Big Blue over on Ravelry. Thank you so much for this lovely Square, great colours and such a pretty Square. If anyone wants to take part in this Challenge then please pop over SIBOL CHALLENGES all the details are on the web site.

Big Blue (RAV) Your 'Jan Eaton 100 Pastel Delight' arrived today! Thank you!


At the moment I am working on the 'Your Local Landscape' Challenge. The Squares are coming in now and if you have any ready and are sending soon then please let me know. This particular Blanket is going off to Jersey to take part 'hopefully' in the Jersey Textile Showcase 2012. After the event the Blanket will be sold to raise money for Jersey Mencap which is a very worthy cause.

I have also took some photographs this morning of our Olympic Squares. Now I am still collecting for these and if you want to take part then please pop over to SIBOL CHALLENGES once again. My deadline is end of March but I am going to start working on these within the next few days. I probably won't be making so many 'Sunshine Blankets' at this very moment in time because I really need to start working on the Olympic one and of course finishing the Landscape one.

Would you like to see the current Olympic Squares? Here they are now!

I do hope you will stay tuned into SIBOL, within the next few weeks I have about a 100 Flags arriving from our friend akarapacha in the States. Her Squares are amazing too!

Now these Squares will be put into a special Charity Blanket with the Olympics in mind. When the Blanket is finished it will be sold on EBAY to raise money for the Alzheimers Society here in the UK. I thought appropriate as it is connected to the Elderly.

So if you are interested in either the 'Your Local Landscape' Challenge or the 'Olympics London 2012' Challenge then please pop over to our SIBOL CHALLENGES web site.  Thank you very much for visiting SIBOL today!
