'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.

'Going For Gold'

Hi Ladies,

'Going For Gold!' Olympic Challenge. Thanks to everyone that sent me Squares! Truly amazing! Please 'add note' if you see your Square(s)!

Our 'Going For Gold' Blanket is shown in the header picture.  I''m so proud of what we have achieved. Squares came in from as far as the States and Europe with Scotland, Wales and England too. Each and every Square has been made lovingly by members of our 'SIBOL' group and I would like to thank each and everyone of you!

We had such fun making this Blanket, it gave us the chance to design a Square, put our thinking caps on and rise to the Challenge. So whatever happens to our Blanket I know we did our very best with it. Fingers crossed we will have a successful outcome.

Just another photo....

Just my way of saying 'Thank you!'

Update - Lunchtime 30th May.

I have had two Squares arrive at lunchtime from 'beang' over on RAVELRY.  Thank you so much for these two Challenges Squares.

One is for 'One Heart Around The World'

'One Heart From Around The World' Challenge.

 and the other the 'Faces' Challenge.

'Faces' Challenge.

 If anyone is interested please follow the link to Challenges.

These two Squares have been made beautifully, great colours too. Thank you so much beang! I'm very grateful to you!
