'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.

SIBOL 185!

Good Afternoon welcome to SIBOL!

I have another beauty for you today! Isn't it exciting? I still get excited even now after all of these Blankets. All of our Blankets are 'unique' you may have noticed. No two Blankets are the same! It's always lovely to receive the Squares but when they are put in to the Blankets they seem to take on yet another meaning.

Just reminding you I'm not accepting Stash Squares until January 2013, but I do need Challenge Squares. If you are interested please pop to SIBOL CHALLENGES.

If you aren't interested in making Challenge Squares, why not make your own Squares and put them in to a Blanket and donate it to SIBOL for the Elderly? All sizes are over on the Challenge Blog.

Let's have a look at SIBOL 185 now. I would like to thank 'jean nock' for 'taking a bag' and helping me assemble a Blanket. She has made it beautifully and I am very grateful to her. This is called 'Pink Paradise'.
A stunning Blanket.

I would  also like to thank 'jean nock' for sending in Jan Eaton No. 93 'Sequenced Stripes' it's a lovely Square made in beautiful colours.

Thank you very much.

I would also like to thank bonsall very much for sending in a great selection of Butterflies.
I feel like an 'entomologist' showing you my Butterfly collections!

These ones are so...pretty!


Thanks for stopping by, I am off to finish my Wiggles Blanket now the Squares are amazing!
