'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.

Bergere de France yarns catalogue.

Hi everyone!

This isn't really 'SIBOL' related but I just wanted to show you what I had come in the post today!
I sent off for a free catalogue 'Bergere de France' yarns here's the LINK. It's full of great things to make and buy and what I like most about it is the colour cards. Years ago it was very easy to get hold of them but these days we have to rely on the colours on line and it's so much nicer  to see what you are actually buying.

I've taken some photos to show you what' inside.

Isn't it lovely to sit for a few minutes with a nice cup of tea and look at all the things that make us happy? Crocheting Hooks, Knitting Needles, yarn winders etc? Why not order one yourself there is £10.00 off your first order too! The Link is at the top of the post.

  1. Wow! I can't believe this is free. I bought a Bergere de France pattern for a coat a couple of weeks ago and am now looking for yarn. I must order one of these right away. Thanks for sharing the link.

  2. You're welcome Gillian. It did take a few weeks to arrive I cant' wait to find 5 minutes to look at it properly. x
