'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.

'Blue Jean's.

Good morning!

A wet one again here in the UK!

I am very happy to be showing you a new SIBOL. This one has been assembled by baw1812 (Bev) on RAV. I would like to thank her very much for making a wonderful job. It's called 'Blue Jeans'. I would also like to thank everyone for contributing squares for this blanket.

It's beautiful, I love it.

Thanks to Beverley for assembling. Thanks to everyone for contributing squares!

Butterflies, Butterflies have been fluttering in to 'Two Times' this morning. A great collection from Bev........

Beverley (UK) Thank you for the Butterflies!

Bev also made a square for the 200th blanket. We are making this blanket with inspiration from my Grandmother. I gave the Ladies a short description of my Grandmother and what her favourite colours were and what she liked doing etc., It's been really interesting to see the squares coming in. Bev has made a square with buttons sewn on. The reason for this was because when my Nephew George was little he often played with her buttons and called my Grandmother 'Grandma Buttons'. This square is amazing, I love it. Thank you Bev.

The ribbon too finished the blanket off beautifully, thank you for everything. Here's Bevs' square.

Beverley (UK) Thank you for the 200th square for my Grandmother's blanket.

I also received a great collection of Butterflies from Nicola. Fantastic so pretty too! Thank you!
Nicola (UK) Thank you for the Butterflies!

These Butterflies with the tags on will be going to a Craft Group next year. I have been asked to give a talk about our Group. I am terribly nervous  and if anyone can give me any help I would be most grateful. A few tips maybe!

I thought it would be nice to give out a couple each to the Ladies in the Craft Group and I hope to take along some Challenge blankets to show them too. I am looking forward to it but I am nervous already.

If you want to have a go at the Butterflies, it is always great to have them coming in. We do get through them so quickly with the amount of blankets we are making.

I'll give you the link. But of course please your own patterns too, I don't mind.

Here's the link to Netties blog in Australia.

I'll leave you now with a Slide Show I have made for 'Blue Jean's. Thank you for visiting today!
