'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.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 278!

Hi Everyone!

278


I'm very happy to be showing you a Blanket that Marilyn has given me a hand with. She very kindly offered to 'take a bag' of squares and assemble them for me. The squares are amazing and I would like to thank everyone for sending them in.

It still amazes me after nearly three years that we are making such wonderful Blankets. Each one is just so different from each other. My original idea was to make 6, we have now made 278! I am doing my final delivery of the year in November and I am trying to get the last bags of Squares finished off in time. If we don't finish for November they will be given out in 2013.  I'm sure the Elderly are going to love the Blankets that I have ready.

Let's take a look at the one Marilyn has made up now, and thank you so much for assembling it so beautifully!

Thanks to Marilyn for assembling, and thanks to everyone who sent in these beautiful Squares!


Do you have time to look through my Slide Show? I hope so.
