Thank you for popping over to SIBOL this evening. I'm just re-capping tonight on our Picture Square Blankets. I have posted some photos of the ones we have made in our SIBOL Challenges. I had an enquiry the other day. A Lady was asking me 'Is there a book? How can I learn how to make a Picture Square?'
I basically told her a Picture Square can have a very basic background, maybe a Granny Square or even just a Square in Double Crochet, or Trebles. You then Crochet 'shapes' and perhaps sew them on or of course you can Crochet them in to make your Picture.
The Ladies who send in Squares to SIBOL, are using their imagination and making the Picture Squares up as they go. I sometimes go on to Google to get ideas. For instance, when we had the Sun theme. I found a picture on Google which I then tried to copy. 'Little Miss Sunshine'. 'Fun In the Sun'.
Our 'Farmyard Blanket'.
Our 'Royal Wedding' Blanket.
Our 'Young At Heart' Blanket.
Our 'Beach Picnic' Blanket.
The Elderly Residents really love looking at the Picture Square Blankets. When I took the 'Sunshine Blankets' in to the Home a few weeks ago, Alice particularly liked the 'Young At Heart' Blanket. It
brought back so many memories to her of her Childhood. I think that was really nice, it gave her such a
lot of pleasure. These 'Picture Square' Blankets are a real talking point in the homes. I really enjoy
putting them together after you have sent me the Squares, thank you so much.
Why not join us? We are collecting Squares for a special Olympic Blanket which we are making next year. The details are over on SIBOL CHALLENGES. When the Blanket is completed we are going to auction on EBAY and all proceeds are going to be given to the Alzheimers Society here in the UK.
This is a special Blanket and I need your help, why not join us?
Thank you all for your support.
