'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 NO LONGER ACCEPT KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES. I DO HOWEVER ACCEPT MADE UP BLANKETS FOR THE ELDERLY IN CARE HOMES. I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO RECEIVE YOURS! THANK YOU!

Good Morning to you all and welcome!

We're featured in 'Crafty' magazine. Issue 8.

I'm just popping in to tell you that we are featured in 'Crafty' magazine this issue.
'Hedjogs' on RAVELRY has very kindly informed me this morning.

The magazine are offering a free 'Pink and Grey Flamingo' Crochet Kit  and they are inviting their readers to make the Crocheted Square and send it along to myself so that we can make a Blanket with them 
which will be donated to the Elderly.

This is your chance to try out a beautiful Square so please pop along to your local newsagents and pick up a copy.

Originally  I did say that we were putting a 'stop' on Squares and Blankets after the 30th November due to Christmas but because this article is in Crafty this issue I would like to tell you that we will be working as normal. If you are making Squares and Blankets I shall do my best to cope with them during the rest of November and December.  If you still want to wait until the New Year to send me a finished Blanket that's absolutely fine too. I know there are a few in the pipeline and some Ladies did say they would wait. So please do what ever is best for you.

Our Challenges will start again January time next year. So I shall be up-dating our Challenge Blog end of December. Here's the Link.

If you would like to join our Group on RAVELRY here's the Link. Everyone is welcome, please introduce yourself! We are a friendly, chatty Group and it will be lovely if you say hello.

All of our 'Sunshine Blankets' are displayed over on FLICKR. Here's the Link. This is my visual record of every single Square and Blanket made. There surely is a lot of 'eye-candy' over there!

As you can see by the Header photo I have recently visited a local Home and you can read all about my visit by scrolling down older posts. Our Blankets are always so well received and especially now as the weather is getting colder. Lots of Elderly people do not have many visitors either and it is so nice that when they receive a 'Sunshine Blanket' they will know that someone maybe hundreds or thousands of miles away is thinking of them.

Squares and made up Blankets are welcomed and if you have any queries at all then please mail me
I'm Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net

Thank you
