'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 from the States and UK arrive today!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I am very pleased to be showing you some new Squares which have arrived today. The first set of Squares have come all the way from the USA from our dear friend Luna! Thank you Luna! I'm sure you will love these Squares. Luna has made a great set of Heart Squares for our 'One Heart From Around The World' Challenge. They are just so pretty! Along with some beautiful Granny Squares. Great yarn Luna! The Hearts are in different colours and each one is superb! Let's take a look at them.

We have also had a very pretty Square arrive from Pippa (UK) today. Pippa chose to make No.92 'Victorian Lace' for our Jan Eaton Challenge. This is such an interesting Block, I'm so pleased you took part in our Challenge Pippa.  Also many thanks for the Stash Squares! I love them all!
