'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 from Scotland.

Good afternoon,

A lovely day here in the UK, sun is shining and we've had some great Squares arrive from jenn1feranne (RAV) (Scotland) today! Thank you so much!

jenn1feranne has made some really interesting Squares for our Challenges.

Let's take a look at them now.

First I have two Squares for our Transport Challenge. The first a Hot Air balloon, such a different form of transport! I've always wanted to go up in a Hot Air balloon, amazing as I don't like heights! This is a beautifully Knitted Square and I love the bright colours in the balloon.

Over on RAVELRY we have a Birthday thread and when it's anyones Birthday we hop on to the Birthday Bus and travel sometimes thousands of miles to wish our Group member a Happy Birthday. 'jenn1feranne' very kindly up-dates this thread for us and she does a fantastic job too. Several months ago she drew the Birthday Bus for us and if you look closely you can see a Birthday cake, balloons and even SIBOLETTE's with a glass in their hand! This is a great drawing 'jenn1feranne' we have always liked it. 'jenn1feranne' is such a talented Lady that she has Knitted a Square with the same design and this will go in the centre of our Transport Blanket.

Absolutely brilliant don't you think?

The next Square is for our 'Underwater Challenge'.

'Underwater Challenge' - Great Square.


Fantastic once again.

Then we have two Squares for our Marie Curie Cancer Care Challenge. Wonderful Daffodils. We have just collected over 4 Blankets worth now, but we need more please!

Thank you so much for taking part 'jenn1feranne', fantastic ideas.  My photos could have been better the light was too bright today. Shouldn't complain about the Sun should we!
