'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.

Always something new to see!

Good Afternoon,

I do hope you will scroll down our previous posts. I have two Blankets to show you now and underneath this post you will see three beautiful Daffodil Squares that came in from Marje. Underneath
Marje's post I am showing you the latest Challenge Blanket. 'Autumn Leaves'. I wouldn't want you to miss anything.

I am very pleased to be showing you two beautiful Blankets which Pippa has assembled for us. The Squares were made by Grace who lives in Sheltered accommodation at Rowheath House.  Grace is in her 80's. She sits crocheting away for our SIBOL project and I'm so pleased that it gives her something to do. The Squares are made in double yarn and they are so pretty.

Let's take a look at the Blankets now.

Grace in her 80's at one of the homes I visit has made these Squares. pippa has assembled them into two beautiful Blankets. Thank you!



Pippa you have made a great job of putting these Blankets together for me,
they are so pretty.  Thank you!

I don't think for one minute Grace will be reading the 'SIBOL' Blog
but I will be writing to thank her for the Squares.

These are the other 50 I received.

Grace - thank you!

Thanks for visiting today!
