'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.

'Sunshine and Showers'.

Good Afternoon to you all!

Thanks for popping in to the 'SIBOL' Blog today.  I am very pleased to be showing you 'Sunshine and Showers' which has been assembled by MarilynJG.

Thanks to everyone who sent me Squares for this Blanket.

This Blanket is no 588. I can't believe we have nearly reached 600, it doesn't seem five minutes ago that we had reached the 500 milestone.

With thanks to everyone that sent me Squares for this Blanket it certainly has turned in to another beauty. MarilynJG has taken the border from Edie Eckmans border book and I can't tell you which number because I haven't got my book at home at the moment. But the border really finishes it off so well and actually I think it would be lovely for a Babies Blanket. I found some suitable Butterflies for the Blanket and some pretty lacy ribbon to tie it up with which really goes well with the joining.

MarilynJG has Crocheted her flat braiding join  in between the Squares and it looks lovely. We all have our own methods of joining and Marilyn is an expert I have to say at this particular method. All of the Blankets she has assembled for me or made herself have really worked out a treat.

The Squares really remind me of 'Sunshine and Showers' and I think it's a perfect name. Thank you very much Marilyn for your help, very much appreciated.

Well that's it for today. I'll leave you with some photos now
