'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.

Good News for SIBOL! Yarn Donation.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Wow!   That's all I can say! Do you know what exciting news I have just received from ATheeC (Flickr) Tinka/Martine in Belgium?

Well she has just mailed me with some exciting news that has recently happened to her. For the first time she ordered her yarn over the internet. When she ordered the yarn she mentioned our Crocheting and Knitting Group 'SIBOL' giving Links to my Flickr and Blog site.  Tinka (Martine) asked Gemma who she ordered the yarn with whether she had any 'left over yarn' that she would like to donate to our SIBOL project for the Elderly? Tinka promised her that if she had, I would put a link up on my web-site.

Well......dear 'SIBOLETTES!'  Guess what!!!! 

Today Tinka/Martine has received her order and Gemma has 'very kindly' put extra yarn into the box for SIBOL use.  She has sent 400gr - 16 skeins of 25 gram' beautiful yarn! Just look at this gorgeous yarn Ladies!!

This yarn has 'very kindly' been donated to SIBOL

By  http://www.remyhandwerken.nl/

Isn't this yarn just lovely! What wonderful colours!

I must 'personally'  thank them for this SIBOL donation it truly is so kind of you. I am so very pleased that you think our SIBOL project for the Elderly is a worthwhile cause.  We as SIBOLETTES work extremely hard all year round making Crocheted and Knitted Squares.  These in turn are assembled by myself and made in to 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly in the UK. I have hand-delivered 'personally' 44 of our 'Sunshine Blankets' to Elderly Ladies and Men in the Nursing Homes.  A lot of these people do not have visitors and sit for hours alone.  It is so nice to know that a gift of a  'Sunshine Blanket  brings a smile to their face and sends Love and Warmth to them knowing that someone cares and thinks about them.

Thank you so much to Gemma and her company for thinking of the Elderly in this way.  Every one that belongs to SIBOL, myself and my 'SIBOLETTES' are very grateful to you, Thank You!

I do hope everyone will pop over to the web-site. http://www.remyhandwerken.nl/
It is my absolute pleasure to link you.

    I am manager of an elderly/disability homesite and would like to teach some women how to crochet. As my income is limited (I am a senior as well) I only have a few crochet needles and little yarn. If anyone would be willing to donate a few needles and/or yarn please write me at trilbyrental@yahoo.com and thanks for reading this.
