'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.

Challenge Squares arrive from The Netherlands.

Good afternoon,

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' this afternoon.  Today I had a large delivery of blankets and squares and I would like to show you by starting with Fiona's Challenge Squares.

Fiona has very kindly made Squares for our Challenges and they are as follows.

A Square for our 200th blanket. With my Grandmother as inspiration Fiona has very kindly made a Cowboy hat! Now you are wondering what the connection is!  My Grandmother loved reading Cowboy books and I would very often go to the Library to fetch some for her.  They were always in Large print and it was quite a game trying to get ones that she hadn't read. But we did manage to find a few.

Fiona has made a superb Square for this Challenge.

200th blanket. A Cowboy Hat. My Grandmother loved reading Cowboy books and Fiona has gathered inspiration from this. Wonderful idea.

Really good idea Fiona thanks very much.

The next Squares are for our 'Owl Challenge' What beauties!

'Owl Challenge'.

This one has an applique sewn on to the Square. Brilliant idea!

'Owl Challenge' Square. I love the applique. Fantastic idea Fiona!

A Square for our 'Musical Challenge'. Another wonderful idea Fiona!

'Musical Challenge' Great Square!

A Square for our 'Heart Challenge'. So pretty!

'Heart Challenge'.

These are really good Squares for our Challenges and it has been a joy to receive them. I MUST do a count and see what we are needing now. Thanks so much Fiona.

Fiona (Netherlands) Your Squares arrived today for our Challenges. Thank you!

Before I go our TV broke on Thursday. We came downstairs in the morning and we couldn't get it to come on. After making enquiries at the local electrical store we were told it wasn't worth repairing it. So Mr. Twins 'bless him' treated us both to one of the Smart TV's. Now I know they have probably been out a while we are always so....late with new technology but I especially like this TV because guess what I could see? 

Well guess what you can see on our new Smart TV! ha.ha.

Our 'SIBOL' Blog playing 'Aquarium' too! Thanks Mr. T!

Thanks for visiting me here today and could you please follow on to previous posts and catch up with the latest blankets? Thank you!
