'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.

Bank Holiday Fun!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' this afternoon. A pretty miserable day here on Bank Holiday Monday!

I have been having some fun with photos of our SIBOL Blankets. I have been using Dumpr.net photo fun to create some Circles using jenn1ferannes'  pretty Blankets!

Do you want to see?

Here's 'Still Waters!'

Here's 'Springtime!'

Here's 'Raspberry Sundae'

The idea came from a paperweight which I had made when I was 21 years of age.

I met Mr. Twins when I was 21 all those years ago and during one of our 'fallings out' he
tried to win back my love..... by bringing me 10 not '12' red roses. Travelling 20 miles on the bus as his car was off the road. 

Today while doing my dusting I stopped for a second and looked at this gorgeous ornament I had in my cabinet and thought how nice it would be to make some pretty paperweights using your pretty 'SIBOL' Blankets.

This is what I have done today for 'jenn1feranne' and if you like it I will make more for the other Blankets we have received. Just give me a shout if you would like yours made!

Wouldn't it be nice if we could go into business making 'paperweights' as well as Blankets? :) We surely would have some stunning designs!

I'll leave you with my ornament. These roses have been preserved all these years from my Loving Husband 'Mr. Twins'. x
