'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.

Saturday Squares!

Good Morning,

Welcome to 'SIBOL'.

I am very happy to be showing you some gorgeous Crocheted Squares which have arrived this morning from Marilyn here in the UK. Marilyn has sent in some really pretty Squares all of different designs. They have all been made beautifully and I can tell she loves her Crocheting! Each Square is different and I'm sure you will agree they are just so.....interesting! Great colours too!

Let's take a look at Marilyns' Squares now.

Marilyn (UK) Your Squares arrived today! Thank you!

Aren't they gorgeous? I have made a Slide Show for you Marilyn!

It's very nice of you to take part in our 'SIBOL' project, thank you Marilyn.

As you know today is the last day for Olympic Squares and this little beauty has arrived just in time! It is from Kathryn here in the UK. Kathryn has been inspired by the Olympics to make this Square. To me it reminds me of the Olympic Flame! What do you think? It has been made in beautiful colours and it has the firey look about it! Thank you so much Kathryn for taking part in our Olympic project.

Kathryn (UK) Inspired by the Olympics! I think it is the Olympic Flame which has inspired her to make this Square. It's gorgeous thank you!

Your Square is one of the last to arrive now for our Olympic Challenge, but I just want you to know it will go in our Blanket hopefully raising money for Alzheimers here in the UK! Thank you!

It's been a busy day for my local Postman today, I found a large parcel in my porch today from Mari and her Craft Group in Inverness-shire, (SCOTLAND).  The Ladies have been very busy indeed making Squares for our 'SIBOL' project. Quite a lot of these Squares will be put into our Olympic Challenge Blanket. Thanks to everyone in the Craft Group that has sent me Squares I am most grateful to you all! They have been made beautifully and I am so pleased that you think our project is worthwhile!

Let's take a look at the Squares now, I have made a Slide Show for you all!

One thing occurred to me while watching Emmerdale on ITV the other evening. Have you ever noticed the Crocheted Blankets on the backs of the chairs in the 'Dingle' family house hold? Well I thought it was time they had one of our 'SIBOL' Blankets. My mind is working over time again and I asking if anyone would like to make a 'Flower Square' for a Blanket which I am proposing to do. I would make the Blanket myself and then send on to the 'Props Department' at Emmerdale. There is no guarantee that it would be used, but I would like to take the chance. I thought it would be a nice change to see something rather than a Granny Blanket!

Are you interested? Please follow the link and put your name down.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at all these gorgeous Squares, many thanks to everyone that has contributed towards 'SIBOL!'
