'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.

Busy day at 'Two Times'.

Good afternoon and thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!

I have such a lot to show you today! Let's start with some squares from 'The Wool Stop'. These squares
have arrived this morning and I can't wait to work with them. Beautiful colours including superb variegated yarn which make these squares so...interesting. The centres are really pretty. Thank you so much for sending them to 'SIBOL'.

Before I finish my Blog post  I would very much like to wish Kathryn all the very best with her new book. A lot of you may know Kathryn of Crochet Concupiscence already.   Yesterday I received an email telling me that her new book is now on sale and I would just like to take this opportunity of letting you all know.  I haven't got my copy yet  I am ordering it  this evening but from what I have read this is going to be such a good read.

In all the time I have  been collecting squares for 'SIBOL' I have met such a lot of lovely Ladies from all walks of life and they have told me how Crocheting relaxes them and helps them through really difficult times.

Kathryn has written a book 'Crochet Saved My Life' and it is  based on her own experience of using crochet in conjunction with therapy and medication to survive lifelong, life-threatening depression. When she first began to tell people that she was writing about how crochet had saved her life, she expected to be laughed at. Instead, she was inundated with story upon story from people who felt that the craft had saved their lives as well. The author went on to interview nearly two-dozen women about their experiences. The group is made up of women who are professionals in the industry, working as crochet designers, craft book editors, and crochet bloggers as well as women from other walks of life. This new book shares their stories along with her own to highlight the many facets of crochet that make it a great therapeutic tool for people of all ages.

Kathryn also tells me that 'SIBOL' has a tiny mention at the back of the book for Charity work. Thank you very much!

I am going to give you the links, please pop over and order your copy!
