I will be accepting Knitted/Crocheted Blankets and Shawls after 1st March this year. Thank you.
I am often asked if there are 'collection points' around the country. Some Ladies find the cost of postage too expensive. There is a way round this. Why not make your Sunshine Blanket and donate it to your 'local' Care Home? If you want to contact me for a a pdf 'label' I will willingly send it to you. You can do this on behalf of our Group 'SIBOL' if that would help you.
I can give you help also by giving you a list of Care Homes in your area. This would be a great way of getting Sunshine Blankets to the Elderly in other parts of the country and not just 'Birmingham'.
If I can help you please contact me
I'm Sue on firstname.lastname@example.org
'theemuts' on RAVELRY is collecting Crocheted Squares.
She requires (15cm or 20cms/6 inch or 8 inch) Squares so that she can assemble them together into Blankets for Cancer patients at 'Zorghuis Oostende' a Home in Belgium.
Would you like to help?

SIBOL Squares From Australia By Annette Young.
I hope these Squares, Find their way to you, They're made with love And Friendship true. And though the miles And seas divide, Our crafting love Is just as wide. So make some Squares, For Mrs Twins, To spread some warmth And give some grins. When we give Squares, That we're proud of, We show we care With warmth and love. So, when crafters unite, Hooks and threads they twirl, For those in need, You mean the world. Annette Young. June 1, 2010.
The Lost Stash by Sally 'Chunky Hooker'.
Whilst rummaging in the scrap cupboard, I heard a plaintive cry " She never looks in our little bag, Can you tell me why? " A voice replied, "We're old and tatty, A little bit worn out, Our colours dull, our fibres matted, Now don't give me that pout!" "But I want to be a 'Sibolette', I really, really do! To be part of a Sibol, Made by the lovely Sue. It's my destiny, my dream, my fate!" The voice was getting higher, "I may be old but it's never too late, I'm not ready to retire". "Oh gosh", I thought, That sounds like me, Slightly worn, with a dodgy knee. So I'm off to college, A Diploma to gain And the voices of the Lost Stash? "Sibolettes" they became!
Welcome to 'SIBOL'.

What would the SIBOLS be saying to Squares?
Bethel of Bethania said...... Welcome to your new home...... nice lady lives here...... She will play with you often...... feel you, smell you, admire you. She will then let you have a wee rest.... then introduce you to some more new friends!.... You will love what she does with you..... She will give you a new life..... So new little friends don't be afraid....... all will be well!........
Thank you Alhana!
Alhana is passing on this Award not to 12 blogs, but to the Ladies on the 'group blog' on SIBOL for making Granny Squares for Charity. Well done Ladies!
