'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.

New Challenge Squares and a pretty Blanket!

Good Afternoon to everyone!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today.

As you know we are in the middle of our Challenges at the moment and I am very pleased to be showing you two Squares which have arrived from Joyce28.  Joyce has sent in a gorgeous 'Irish Rose' Square and a perfect 'Olympic Square' too.

If you would like the pattern for 'Irish Rose' then please email me Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net  Let's take a look at 'Irish Rose' first.

'Irish Rose' A very pretty Square, very springlike!

A very pretty Square in great colours, thank you Joyce.  Also a wonderful Olympic Square. This one is called 'Weighlifting'. How good is this!  Our special Olympic Blanket is going to be great with all these interesting Squares coming in.  If you would like to take part I must receive your Olympic Squares now by the end of March at the latest. Here's the information if you are interested. Please follow the link to SIBOL CHALLENGES.

Here is 'Weightlifting'.  Thank you very much Joyce, I am very grateful to you.

'Weightlifting' for our Olympic Challenge. A great Square thank you!

I am very pleased to be showing you a beautiful Granny Square Blanket which has arrived this lunchtime from 'Ginnyknit'. (UK)  Ginnyknit has taken part in one of our 'optional challenges' to make a Blanket herself and donate to 'SIBOL'.  If you would like to take part please follow the link to our Challenge Blog.

The Squares are just so nice, very well co-ordinated and Ginnyknit has put it together so well. This Blanket is going to be very well received by our Elderly folk in Nursing Homes and I am extremely grateful to you.  The Butterflies are from our 'Butterfly Stash!'.  I found two perfect Butterflies to match Ginnyknits Blanket.
The Butterflies were made by jean nock. Thank you!

Ginnyknit (UK) Has very kindly made and donated a Blanket to SIBOL.

I would just like to say that if you are interested in making the Butterflies for SIBOL, there is a great video tutorial by Nettie in Australia. If you would like to donate any to SIBOL, these will come in very useful to me. It saves a little time when I am due to showcase them.

Sit back now and enjoy your Slide Show Ginnyknit. This truly is a gorgeous Blanket thank you for taking the time and trouble to make it for 'SIBOL'.
