'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.

Shawls from Rachel.

Good morning,

Yesterday I received two Shawls from Rachel which are both beautifully made. I am always very grateful to you for taking part in our SIBOL project and it's always lovely to receive a letter from you too. I'm so pleased you have  a 'Knitting hotline' with your Gran it's lovely you have something in common to share.

Rachel has made two Crocheted Shawls, one Red, White and Pink 'a love theme' and the other a Black one made in Sparkly yarn both beautiful pieces of work.

Thank you so much Rachel I will be writing soon to you.

Rachel thank you for the Shawls.


I will make sure the Shawls will be taken out as soon as possible.

Thank you so much,
