'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.

We're in Craftseller!

Good Evening Everyone!

I am very pleased to be telling you some brilliant news, today we are in 'Craftseller' another UK 'crafty' magazine!

They have written a special two page article called 'Crafting for Charity'  and our Olympic Challenge has been mentioned.  This is really good publicity for our Group once again and I'm very pleased to say I have had emails already enquiring about our work after reading about us!

It's always so nice to receive emails from new Ladies thanking us for the work we do, and one Lady in particular I won't mention her name but she knows who she is has was telling me how our 'SIBOL' Blog has inspired her to pick up her needles and hook again!  This is the sort of news I love to hear and it actually spurs me on if you like! I am very grateful to her and also to the other Ladies who have enquired about our Olympic Challenge.

Talking of the Olympic Challenge I have edged all the Squares in one row of Double Crochet and I'm waiting now until the rest of the Squares come in. So if you would like to take part please follow the link to the SIBOL CHALLENGE  Blog.

Let's have a look now at the magazine. I would like to thank Marie for featuring an article about us!

If you click on the photos it will take you to Flickr and then click on 'actions' and then 'sizes' you will be able to read it then.

I'm sorry I haven't been able to showcase the two latest Blankets yet, but my Daughter and Husband have been at home on holiday and I just haven't had chance yet! But I will do as soon as I can sorry about that!

So another exciting day, thank you all for your support and I would also like to thank all the new members over on Ravelry too! Lovely to have you. Of course as always the new Followers on here too!
