'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.

Re-capping on our Challenge work this year!

Good Evening,

I have been sorting the blankets out for the Homes this afternoon. I have to attach the cards and also the Butterflies to the blankets. What amazing work we have all done! I can't believe how many blankets we have put together. There will be about 40 blankets plus the Challenge blankets. I shall be keeping the Challenge blankets back until next March as I have to visit a Craft Group and do a 'talk!'. I thought it would be nice to take some with me to show the Ladies there what we are capable of. I thought it would be nice if I post our Challenge blankets on today's post just to refresh your memory.

I can't thank you all enough for your help this year and over the next few days I shall be getting the final blankets ready for deliveries next week or the week after.

Thanks to everyone that took part in this Think Pink (4).

What wonderful blankets we have all put together. Some have raised money for Charities, some will be delivered to the Homes.  These are our Challenge blankets, but isn't every blanket we make a Challenge? Why not challenge yourself and make a blanket for SIBOL? Any queries please email me on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net (Sue)

Thanks everyone and 'Well Done!'
