'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.

'Flying The Flag' is on EBAY/200th squares and another new SIBOL! (Luna pop in! )

Hi everyone!

Our 'Flying The Flag' Charity blanket is now on EBAY.
We are trying to raise money for Alzheimer's here in the UK.
Let's take a closer look at the Flags in this blanket.

Thank you!

Today I receive the first square for our 200th blanket. This came in from 'creativegranny' here in the UK. A beautiful square which is crocheted showing some sweet forget-me-nots. We are making a special 200th blanket and inspiration is taken from my Grandmother who lived to 103 years of age. My SIBOL project was started in her Memory. Thank you 'creativegranny' it's gorgeous. I love it.

'creativegranny' (UK) Square for our 200th Blanket. Thank you!

I also received a square for our 200th blanket from joyce28. When the 'SIBOLETTES' suggested making a blanket with my Grandmother as inspiration I told them that my Grandmother loved playing cards at the Whist Drive every week. Although she loved playing cards sitting for a couple of hours gave her cramp in her legs but this was her weekly outing for some years, she so enjoyed it. 

joyce 28 has made a square with the game of Whist in mind. Let's take a look at this one.

joyce28 '200th Blanket Challenge' My Grandmother loved playing whist. A great idea thank you.

The four of Diamonds, golly that's fantastic too.

joyce28 also very kindly made a bag of red squares up for me. Today the blanket arrived at 'Two Times'. It is another stunning blanket. You will see now on the photos I'm going to show you. 

Thanks to everone that contributed squares for this blanket.

'I always manage to get a leg of the chair in on the photos!!!'.

joyce28 would like to call this SIBOL blanket 'Alice May' after her mum. She nearly always wore red, and even carried red roses in her wedding bouquet 66 years ago. Joyce said she thinks her mum would have liked the idea of the blankets and our SIBOL project so yes of course Joyce I will be most happy to name this blanket 'Alice May'.
