'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.
I NO LONGER ACCEPT KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES. I DO HOWEVER ACCEPT MADE UP BLANKETS FOR THE ELDERLY IN CARE HOMES. I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO RECEIVE YOURS! THANK YOU!

Where do you live? Pop into 'SIBOL' and claim your Flag!

Hi Everyone!

As you know 'SIBOL' is an international on-line Knitting and Crocheting Group and I thought it would be fun if you popped into 'SIBOL' and had a look at these gorgeous World Flags. They have all been  lovingly made by one Lady in particular 'akarapacha' over on RAVELRY.

She has very kindly made 100 Flags for our Olympic Blanket Challenge to celebrate the Games in London, UK 2012.

Now if you click on to this photo, it will take you across to Flickr. If you then click again and go to 'actions' you will be able to 'add note'. This means you can click and drag a small Square to the Flag of your Country.

Let's have some fun with these beautiful Squares. Let's try and fill the whole lot up! So where-ever you live wouldn't it be marvellous if we could fill the 100 Flags up. You may not have sent me Squares but you have visited our web site for that I am truly grateful.

Here's the 100 Flags now, click on the photo and go over to Flickr photostream.

100 Beautiful Flags from akarapacha! Please 'add note' if you see your Country! :)

I would also like to thank Corien (Netherlands) for her Challenge Squares received today. They are beautiful. Corien I am having trouble accessing my mail and I haven't been able to tell you your Squares have arrived. I do hope you will see this post.

Let's have a look at this cute Owl first.

What a cute Owl too! Thank you so much! They are great Squares!

Now 'Irish Rose' Square, I love this one too, great colours!

'Irish Rose' is so pretty in these colours!

Corien very kindly sent in some Butterflies too!

Corien (Netherlands) Your Challenge Squares arrived today! Thank you!

I love collecting Squares for the Challenge Blankets, I am pleased you have enjoyed making them Corien, thank you so much!

Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today!
