New Venture for SIBOL
I have a very important announcment for you, some of you may already know.
On Friday SIBOL went 'live' over on Ravelry. Yes, Ravelry!
During the last week I had an email from Aishwarya (arien 156 Flickr). She was asking me whether I had thought about going on Ravelry. I explained to her that Ladies had already asked me before, and I wasn't that keen on the idea. I think the reason why I said no before was that I had not long set up SIBOL, I was just getting it off the ground. Aishwarya very kindly offered to set the Group up for me. She said she would
take responsibility for me, the daily running etc., Well this time I said yes. The actual SIBOL web-site is a year old on February 28th and I thought maybe it was time to venture out into new ground.
Aishwarya is such a sweet lady, she has worked so hard for the SIBOL Group. She has studied hard my Flickr photostream and she has taken from there all the 44 'Sunshine Blankets' and loaded them all up on to Ravelry. She has even put all the names with them. Nothing has been too much trouble for her, she has enjoyed the whole process. She communicates with me every step of the way and keeps me in touch with everything.
When we receive Squares in 2011, all these Squares from you will be loaded up on to Ravelry so others can see them and I think the really nice thing about Ravelry is that we can all get on-line and have a chat over there! It's going to be such fun! I do hope you will check it out.
I'm sure we would all like to thank Aishwarya for her help in doing this wonderful thing for our Group. It is her way of helping us she said. It's absolutely amazing how the internet can bring us all together don't you think? She's in Singapore and I'm here in the UK! Yet, we can do things like this. Wonderful! Thank you so much Aishwarya!
Thanks to everyone that has already been over to Ravelry. If you haven't checked us out yet, please pop over and tell us how you found SIBOL and how you are enjoying the Group. We'd all be very pleased to say hello to you, don't be shy!
Blanket wise, I've been working on the Black and White theme. I hope it's not too long before I can show you on Flickr and SIBOL.
I hope you are all having a good weekend, until next time thanks for visiting.!
