'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.

I love Grannies!

Good Afternoon,

This morning I received a parcel from Sally here in the UK. She has very kindly made these two Blankets for the Elderly. What a  surprise this morning I had no idea.  The first one a traditional Granny Square Blanket made in every colour you could imagine. What a fantastic way to use up un-wanted yarn.

The second is a Granny Square Blanket again made with smaller Squares. I love the colours in both Blankets  and both have really good complimentary borders.

What a joy Sally! Thank you very much indeed. You have spent quite a few hours working on these two Blankets and I really appreciate your help.

Let's take a look at them now.

Fantastic work.

I've made a Slide Show now for you! Enjoy looking at these two Blankets.
