'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.

and ......'Club of the Month' is..........'SIBOL!' We're in Knit Today! Well done everyone!

Hi Every one!

Well earlier in the week Melanie (corner left of the mosaic above) told me that 'SIBOL' was in 'Knit Today'. I have been patiently waiting all week to get hold of a copy and this afternoon I bought one from our supermarket.

I am absolutely over the moon because 'SIBOL' is 'Club of the Month' in their magazine and there is a fantastic write up for our Group and also some wonderful photos! The mosaic that we sent up has come out really well and it's really nice to see our 'SIBOLETTES' taking pride and place!  Well done everyone I am just so proud of you all!

It mentions in the article that our 'SIBOL' project was started in Memory of my Grandmother which it was and today is her Birthday! I am so happy, what a nice way to say I am thinking of her.

'Knit Today' 'Club of the Month' is 'SIBOL!'

Click on the photo it will take you to Flickr and then go to
'Actions' and 'Sizes'.

It's my late Grandmothers' birthday today as well! What a nice way to celebrate! Well done everyone!

I would like to thank 'Knit Today' very much indeed for this fabulous write up and for allowing our Group to be  'Club of the Month!'.  My 'SIBOLETTES' will be extremely pleased and I know I am!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!
