'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.

Squares from the USA! Ribbon from Austria!

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Thank you so much for popping into 'SIBOL'.

First of all may I thank you all for the great comments and names on Sally's blankets yesterday. I had such fun making them and wasn't she good to make all those Squares!

Names chosen were

76 'Floral Fiesta' - by bienzfive
75 'Blue Lagoon' - by roomontheleft
74 'Blue Sky Over the Ocean' - roomontheleft

Thanks to everyone else that submitted names they were all brilliant.

Sally's SIBOLS. (Names please).

I do hope Sally will like the names.

May I today thank Abbiezbabie (USA) for the two Textured Squares she sent to me for our Challenge. They are in the gorgeous shade of Deep pink and I'm sure they would be great to touch in one of our 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly. Here they are.

Abbiezbabie (USA) Your 'Textured' Squares arrived today! Thank You!

Gorgeous Squares thank you so much!

I would also like to thank Stricksusi1 (Austria) for sending me some ribbon today for our 'Sunshine Blankets' this will be very useful to keep here for our Blankets. If anyone has ribbon hanging around not being used may be you would like to send for our SIBOL project.  It will always be so useful and as you have probably noticed I think the Blankets look particularly nice all wrapped up with ribbon and of course our SIBOL 'Butterflies'.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 75 (Story carried on). I piled the colours in to groups as I usually do......

I do try to use at least 1" width but even 1/2" widths  are useful. I use what I have available. Probably at least 3ft lengths enough to tie round a Blanket.  I'll show you Stricksusi1's ribbon now. Thank you so much for the package today Stricksusi1!

Stricksusi (Austria) Thank you for the 'SIBOL' Ribbon it will be very useful for our 'Sunshine Blankets'.

Things are moving along here I'm working on a Blanket but I'm not going to say which one. I'm just going to say it's 'challenging!'.

I'm going to leave you with some more photos of Sally's blankets. Thanks for visiting SIBOL today.

                                                               'Floral Fiesta'.
Where shall I start? There are so...many......

60 Squares, colourful ones and more what I call 'soothing' colours.......

                                                                'Blue Lagoon'.
Two down, one to go........

I just love these colours together.......

                                                     'Blue Sky Over The Ocean'.

I really think all these Squares go together so well!

Here is another 'soothing' Blanket, I love this one too......

Amazing aren't we? Each and every one of our 'Sunshine Blankets' are unique. Even now clocking up No 76 no two are the same. What fun we are having! I hope you are enjoying popping into SIBOL! Why not check out any Challenges!

Thanks Abbiezbabie and Stricksusi1! Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today!
