I thought you'd like to know whether any of your Squares were in the Blankets that I took to the Nursing Home on Thursday.
I have to thank you all so much.
Someone else would like to thank you too!
From The Deputy Manager of 'The Willows Nursing Home.
'Thank you so much for your visit to The Willows and I am sorry I wasn't on duty to be able to meet you. The blankets are beautiful!!!! Thank you ladies all over the world and please keep up the good work as these blankets will be much appreciated in many nursing homes up and down the UK. I will put a photo on my blog along with a link in due course, i haven't had time to photograph them yet!! '
Thank you very much for leaving a comment for SIBOL. I know for a fact that our 'SIBOLETTES' were
very pleased to know that the 'Sunshine Blankets' had gone to a good home.
That's all for today, unless any Squares come in......
I wasn't away for long. We've had Squares come in late this afternoon from Beverley in the UK. Beverley
was very organised and made little labels for her Squares giving me her name and details and tied them up with a bit of yarn. What a wonderful idea! I just love that.
She sent SIBOL some Squares for the Bonfire and Christmas Challenges. But also the 'Jan Eaton' Challenge. The Square is no. 3 'Square Target'. I was made aware today from a lady on the MSE thread that there was a Jan Eaton Knitted Book too, which I didn't know. So maybe one day we'll see if we can
make up a Knitted Blanket for the Elderly with purely Jan Eaton's Knitted Squares. I don't know that much about Knitting though. It may be fun for those of you who Knit!
Anyway thank you so much for the Squares today Beverly, and I'm so pleased you have joined our Group! The Squares are lovely. Here's your Slide show enjoy!
The other set of Squares were from our 'regular' SIBOL contributor Lili 4g from France. Always a pleasure
to receive your Squares and I'm so pleased you are enjoying SIBOL, taking part in our Challenges. It's such fun isn't it?
Here's your Slide Show Lili 4g and thank you so much!
There are still Squares available in our 'Jan Eaton Block Challenge'.
Choose a Block Number
email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I will see if the number has been taken.
Make the Square
Then send it to me
and I will make a Blanket for the Elderly.
