'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.

Two Olympic Ta - Dah's for you!

Good Afternoon everyone!

Welcome to 'SIBOL'.

I am very pleased to be showing you two finished Olympic blankets. The first is a 25 Square one which is Crocheted and Knitted. The Squares are all of different patterns and they really are so pretty! I really enjoyed making this blanket up.

Thanks to everyone that contributed squares for this Olympic Challenge!

Beverley over on RAVELRY has just named this blanket 'Rule Britannia'.

The other blanket today is a 49  Square one. The Squares have come in mainly from craft groups here in the UK, mostly Knitted with a few Crocheted ones. 

Knitted and Crocheted Squares.

There are two other blankets. One is finished the other I have the border to do. But it won't be long now before I can show you them. One is 100 Square and the other is 130!  A lot of work!

Thanks to everyone that contributed Squares for my Olympic Challenge. These blankets will be auctioned to raise money for Alzheimer's here in the UK!

I'll leave you with some more photos.

A beautiful day here in the UK, I've just been out for a drive in 'Mr T's' open roof car! We stopped at a Garden centre and had a cream tea! How lovely! I know I'm on my slimming plan but......one cream tea won't hurt will it? You won't tell will you?

Bye for now
