'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.

500 Sunshine Blanket 'celebrations' Challenge.

Good afternoon,

I am very pleased to be showing you a Square received today from Joanna here in the UK. We have now made 500 Sunshine Blankets for the Elderly and we have  decided to make a special Blanket to celebrate. So I am asking if you would like to make a 6" Crocheted or Knitted Square with a 'celebratory' theme. This could have balloons, streamers, 500 etc., Crocheted or Knitted on to the Square in the way of appliques.

You will see the sort of thing I mean by looking at Joannas' Square.


I suppose this is quite a difficult Challenge but that's what 'SIBOL' is all about. Trying new things and getting inspiration from others. So I hope Joannas' Square will inspire you to have a go.

You may want to link over to RAVELRY to the 500th thread.

Thanks for visiting today!
