Ta - Dah! 'SIBOL 10!'

Hello Everyone who is visiting SIBOL today!

I must of all thank you all so much for the wonderful Squares that I receive nearly every day! It's such a pleasure to meet all my new friends and I'm really pleased that you are wanting to take part in my 'SIBOL' project. 

This was just an idea I had back in January, and I had no idea then that it would become so popular! I have now made 10 Blankets since January and I still have plenty more Blankets to work on. I definitely wouldn't be able to do this without your help and I am most grateful.  All the Blankets will be donated to Nursing Homes etc., in November.

We have Challenges to give us different ideas for Blankets, but of course you don't have to do these. Any 6" Square would be most welcome.

Could I just say I am using every Square I receive for the 'Sunshine Blankets' and I do try and let you know when one is used in a Blanket.  We have a bit of fun over on Flickr when a Blanket is finished. We play 'The Flickr Board Game'. Flickr gives us the facility to 'add note' to any photo.  So when one of my Blankets is finished we all try and 'add note' to our own Square, so that we all know who made the Square just by clicking on.  I hope you will pop over and have a look yourself. There are many people who don't have a Flickr account I can highly recommend joining.  We have such a lot of fun over there.

I can't believe I have now made 10 Sunshine Blankets. I made myself an initial target of 6 when I first of all thought of the idea, and I'm just so pleased that I'm able to continue. So thanks everyone.

Working on these 'sun' theme Blankets I thought I had better put my 'sunglasses' on! Thanks Bethel from Australia.  Now only Bethel could have thought of that!

For Bethel! Thank you! Mr. Twin, Would you mind? Sorry to disturb you, I know you are watching the News!

Ta-Dah! 'SIBOL 10!' Thanks to all who contributed Squares! xx

The first two 'sun' themed Blankets are done. Some more to do, the next ones will be colour grouped! I had fun doing it and  I will be making some Butterflies but  I will  have to do them a bit later. I've got Little Miss. Twin (2) home today from work with a tummy bug.....

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed a Square for the 'sun' theme. If you haven't seen your Square please bear with me I will be using it as soon as I can. I am going to get through them.

No Squares from Canada yet, so sorry I haven't got good news for you!

Any names anyone?

Have a lovely evening.

  6. Every time I see those glasses, I just start chuckling to myself. Perfect. You are a classic. Does the hubbie think you are losing you mind, like mine. He calls me "The BLOG-My-STER". And to think I remember a moment when we almost chucked the whole idea of blog. Now, I don't know what I would do without it and you all.


  7. I am just an visitor of your site and it brings me joy! Can you imagine how much life all of you are bringing to the nursing homes!
