'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 today!

Hi everyone!

Thank you so much Ann for these wonderful Challenge squares received today!

Two beautiful squares for our '200th SIBOL'

200th 'SIBOL'

Inspiration for this 200th 'SIBOL' is taken from my Grandmother and her favourite colours were green and blue. Ann has very kindly used these colours in the granny square. Also when my Nephew was tiny he would play with Nan's buttons. He called her 'Grandma Button'. The other square  has buttons attached and is simply beautiful. Both squares are ideal thank you Ann.

'Nursery Rhyme' Challenge. 'Hickory Dickory Dock!'

A square for our Nursery Rhyme Challenge. 'Hickory Dickory Dock'. What a great square! Can you spot the mouse? Do you remember the Nursery Rhyme?

Hickory Dickory Dock!
The Mouse ran up the Clock,
The Clock struck one,
The Mouse run down,
Hickory Dickory Dock!

This tiny little mouse is just so cute! A great square for our Challenge.

The next square a beautiful Heart square.

'Heart Challenge' Thank you!

Once again very nice indeed.

'Owl' Challenge. Thanks so much for these lovely squares!

A lovely Owl square too, thank you so much Ann for these great squares!

Ann (Kianie) Challenge squares have arrived! Thank you!

I had this 'Thank you' card given to me from Rowheath House over a week ago but I have been having trouble with the scanner. I would like to show you now.  The Residents have all signed it which I think is really nice of them. They loved our blankets which we took in a couple of weeks ago and were terribly grateful.

A thank you from Rowheath House for our 'SIBOL' blankets.

Very nice card from the Residents thanking us for their blankets.

A very nice thought thank you very much!

I think that's about all for now, thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today!
