'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.

  1. Hey Sue!
    I made one of the squares! First blanket, not the last row but the one above it, the second one over!
    LOVE that blanket, thanks for taking and using my crochet! You have become so popular, I knew you would!
    Love, Kay

  2. These are beautiful. Well done on getting your blankets delivered this year. A friend and I have managed to get some lap blankets to the home in our town.

  3. Thank you so much Gillian.
    Well done to you both especially at this time of year.
    Love Sue x
