'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.

SIBOL Squares and a new magazine hits the UK!

Hello Everyone!

I am very pleased to be showing you two sets of beautiful Squares today!

The first one is from Anne here in the UK. She has sent her 'favourite Square' into SIBOL. This Square is called 'Water Lilly' and it is from the Jan Eaton book.  I am collecting Squares '25' of them to be exact and they are going to be sent off to 'Inside Crochet' who are going to make a Blanket up apparently with readers' favourite blocks.  If you would like to join in please follow the link

Anne thank you very much I love your Square.

pippa-anne (UK) Your 'favourite Square' has arrived today! Thank you!

I have also had in some Squares from kirsty1234 (RAV).  Kirsty has sent in some gorgeous Granny Squares made in the most beautiful variegated yarn. There is also a very nice flower Square too! I'm very grateful to you Kirsty for donating these pretty Squares to SIBOL.  I have made you a Slide Show sit back and enjoy!

Thank you very much Anne and Kirsty! Very much appreciated.

I would like to tell you about a new magazine that has appeared on the shelves in W.H. Smith here in the UK. It's called 'Craft & Click'. It's priced at £7.99 and on a first flick through (Saving that for bed tonight with a nice cup of hot chocolate) it appears to be a really good read.  There is a section 'Start Crafting Online', followed by 'Social Networking', 'Advancing Online', 'Essential Know how' about buying a computer etc., Also a section of 'Buying and Selling' which features everything you want to know about 'ETSY, EBAY, PAYPAL etc.,'

'Craft and Click!' A new magazine appears in the UK! Your favourite things 'Crafting and the Internet!'

If you like Crochet, Knitting, Papercraft, Cross Stitch, Sewing and the internet  this is the magazine for you!

If anyone would like a copy and they can't get hold of one just give me a shout on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net  (Sue)

I'd be happy to obtain one for you and send it on to you where-ever you are in the World! I have a PayPal facility on the SIBOL website, and if you are prepared to pay the cost of the magazine and post and packing I'd be happy to help you out!  I use the 'donate' button for SIBOL, but it also comes in handy for things like this. 

I'm extremely happy to be telling you that our 'Your Local Landscape' Blanket has arrived in Jersey 'safely' which is good news. If I get any more feedback from the organisers I will let you know.

I think that's about all for now, thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today!
