'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.

New Squares/Flying The Flag/Going For Gold!

Good evening everyone!

Thank you very much for popping in to 'SIBOL' this evening.

Today I had four squares arrive from micha  (RAV)  here in the UK. She has made some Knitted Squares for our Blankets and I would like to thank her very much indeed. The colours of the squares are lovely and you have made them beautifully. Thank you!

Micha (RAV) Your Squares arrived today! Thank you!

You will be very pleased to know that three of our Olympic Blankets are now on EBAY.

We have 'Rule Britannia'

Thanks to everyone that contributed squares for this Olympic Challenge!

'Rule Britannia' - Olympic Challenge.

Let's hope we raise some money for Alzheimer's.



With Butterflies of course! Thanks everyone!

Olympic Challenge. 'Jubilation'

Thanks to everyone that donated Squares for our Olympic Challenge.


Flowers to say thank you Sheila!

What a beautiful Knitted Blanket!

Sheila (88 yrs of age) (UK) has made and donated this Blanket to 'SIBOL' after her Daughter read in Craftseller about our fundraising for the Olympics. (141)


We have been working very hard over the last year collecting squares for our Olympic Challenge, these three Blankets are being auctioned now with the run up to the Diamond Jubilee. The large two Blankets will be auctioned nearer to the Olympics. Thanks everyone for supporting me with this project.

I'll leave you with some photos of 'Flying The Flag' and 'Going For Gold'. As you see they fit nicely on a single bed.

'Going For Gold'. Fits a single bed size beautifully!

'Going For Gold'

Would make a nice throw for a single bed!

Thanks everyone!
