'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.

Pretty Knitted and Crocheted blankets arrive today!

Good evening!

I would like to thank ginnyknit over on the MSE Forum for sending me two blankets today.
A gorgeous Granny square blanket in the colours of pink, dusky pink, maroon and white. These colours
have worked so well together. I think the blanket is so striking I love it!

I've tied some white ribbon and have added some Butterflies from Katia in France.  A really pretty blanket I am very grateful to you thank you!


ginnyknit offered to make up a bag of squares for me and I'm very pleased how this one has turned out too. Pretty squares from Melanie in the colours of light green, darkgreen, dusky pink, lilac, two shades of purple. Smaller squares but they look lovely nevertheless.  ginnyknit has crocheted a border and it is finished off beautifully.


Let's take a look at our Slide Show now, thank you very much!

Created with flickr slideshow.

Thank you so much for making your own crocheted blanket and also for giving me a hand with the squares I have at home. 

Thanks for visiting me today!
