'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.

Our Faces Challenge is finished and a 'take a bag' arrives! (UPDATED).

Good Morning to you!

I am inviting you to join our SIBOL GROUP ON RAVELRY!

I'm very happy to be showing you our 'Faces Blanket' today. This really was an interesting Challenge and once again we have had a great variety of Squares. Thank you so much to everyone that has contributed to this particular Challenge.

Thanks to everyone who contributed Squares for this particular Challenge.

Here's my Slide Show.

I hope you like it!

I am also very grateful to 'insearchofme' over on the MSE Knitting Forum. She kindly offered to 'take a bag' of 25 Squares for me and the finished Blanket is so beautiful. It really is a striking Blanket I absolutely love it. Thank you to everyone that has contributed Squares for this particular Blanket too! Another stunning Blanket for our Nursing Homes.

Thanks to 'insearchofme' for assembling. Thanks to everyone for the Squares!

I particularly like the Butterflies attached to the corners, a great idea!
'insearchofme' has made up 4 Blankets for me, and I am terribly grateful to you. Thank you!
I've made a Slide Show for you! Sit back now and enjoy!

Thanks to everyone that has contributed Squares and indeed Blankets to 'SIBOL'.  All being well I am off to Sutton Coldfield on Friday to deliver 20 Blankets. Then I shall be going back out again towards the end of November with our final delivery of Blankets for the year.  I am terribly grateful to everyone that has supported 'SIBOL'.

If there is anything you would like to know about any of our Blankets, or anything you would like to know about joining our Group, please contact me Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net

Thank you!

I am extremely happy to be telling you that I have received 'Freeform Squares' from bonsall. These Squares will be sent to 'creativegranny' who will then make a wall hanging or cushion for our SIBOL Group. Everyone who took part will have the chance to win this beautiful item whatever it turns out to be!
If you are interested please pop over to 'SIBOL' Freeform Group.

Really gorgeous Squares bonsall, very colourful. You seem to have taken  to Freeform very well indeed!

bonsall 'Your Freeform Squares have arrived!'. Gorgeous thank you!

Cynthia over in the States contacted me a few weeks ago because she was interested in taking part in our Owl Challenge. I did explain I had 25 Squares already, but I decided to make the Blanket in to a 30 Square one as she was so keen to take part.

Today her beautiful Owl Squares arrived just in time because I have now finished the 'Faces' Challenge and I will be starting the 'Owl Blanket' later today. These Squares are amazing, such wonderful designs I absolutely love them. I hope you like our Blanket when it's finished.

Thank you so much for sending these Cute Owls, and I'm sure they would like a little rest after flying across the pond Cynthia!!

I've made a Slide Show for you, sit back and enjoy!

  1. Love the faces blankie, that looks so good and ISOM has done a wonderful job, the colours on the border pick out the colours in the squares perfectly. hugs Ginny

  2. São trabalhos maravilhosos e com uma finalidade admirável. Parabéns aqui do Brasil.

  3. Always a treat to remember to pop by and see what's up in your neck of the woods. Adore the faces. You all are getting just too clever.

  4. I love the faces blanket and cant wait to see the owl blanket when it finished, such fantastic creative squares
