'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.

The Heart in Hand Project/ SIBOL NEWS

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Thank you all so much for the recent comments, very much appreciated.

From time to time here on SIBOL, it is rather nice to publicise others charitable causes. Today I would like to tell you about Kelly's project. 'The Heart in Hand project'.  Kelly is over in the States. 

The project she is focusing on at the moment is making comfort blankets for the victims of the spring's tornado outbreak over in the States. She is making blankets out of Knitted and Crocheted Squares and if you would like to help please pop over and find out  more. She is collecting various sizes of Squares and I'm sure she could use your help.  There are guidelines to follow all information is written down clearly for you to follow.

On a lighter note my friend Melanie is telling me that SIBOL is in Knit Today this week.  I haven't seen a copy yet because Melanie subscribes and she gets her magazine 'super quick!'.  I can't wait to see it.  Thanks for informing me Melanie.

I am just finishing off the second Spring Blanket.  Doing those messey ends, so it won't be long before I can show you all.

In closing thank you all once again for the great comments. I'm so pleased that you like the Squares that have been coming in and indeed the latest blankets.

I think that's all for the moment,  have a lovely afternoon and don't forget to visit Kelly's blog. I wish her the very best with her new venture and I hope it is very successful for her.

  1. Sue - I can not thank you enough for your kindness and generosity in posting about The Heart in Hand Project. Your support means so much to me and those we are making blankets for. SIBOL is a shining star here in the blogland and your kindness reaches to the far edges of the Earth. I am hoping we can do a charity block challenge together - it would be fun to make a great game of it while collecting many squares. Let me know if you and your readers are up for it. With heart and great gratitude, Kelly
