'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.

A cwtch from Cardiff.

Good evening,

I am very pleased to be showing you a blanket that has arrived from divip (RAV/Wales) today. This blanket is just so soft and made in beautiful pastel granny squares. This is the first blanket that has been made by divip for 'SIBOL', and it's an absolute pleasure to receive it. What beautiful colours have been used in this blanket.

We certainly are receiving some beautiful blankets for the Elderly and I know that this one too is just going to be loved by an Elderly person. It's very summery I love it. Thank you so much divip I am very grateful to you.

Let's take a look now. I did ask divip if she had a name and she came up with 'A cwtch from Cardiff'. She said in her mail, "I don't have a name and yippee it's my first blanket clearly isn't a suitable name :) In Wales we call a cuddle a cwtch so maybe a cwtch from Cardiff  - I'll be happy with whatever choice is made. To pronounce cwtch  its c as in cat , w as in the double oo in hook  ignore the t and ch as in church".

A great name thank you! The Butterflies were from my stash by the way and match the yarn perfectly!


I've made a Slide Show for you now divip!

A great blanket!

Thanks for visiting today!
