'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.

Squares are needed if anyone wants to help? Thank you.

Good morning,

A wet one here in the UK today!

As you know I no longer accept Crocheted Squares but there are a number of Ladies in the 'SIBOL' RAVELRY Group that are asking for help. So if you feel you would like to make  one or two Squares please follow the LINKS.

There is never any pressure to make Squares  I know postage is a real problem for many these days. But if you feel you want to you are most welcome.

I will now list the various projects on the go.


YarnballKiki - (Hudson Falls, New York) - Here's her LINK.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out by sending squares to make lapghans for a nursing home. I’m part of a nursing home ministry at my church and they are in great need of a lapghan. You can use whatever yarn you have. Five rounds or six is good. Thank you so much if you can do this. Send me a message for my address.

‘SIBOL’ inspired ‘theemuts’ to pick up her hook after 20 years and over the years she has donated many Squares and Blankets to us. I think it’s time we help her now. Why not crochet your favourite Square and put it in the post to her so that she can help others.

Big Blue- (UK) -Here's her LINK
Has decided to take the plunge and take some blankets and shawls to homes near to her Home to cut down 
on postage costs, but she would still like them to be from Sibol with butterflies and everything.
She would like to know whether any one would like to make Squares for her so that she can get them out quicker to Homes by her.

6" Crocheted Squares in Acrylic are needed. Thank you.


Thank you so much!
