Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 84!
Good Afternoon Everyone!
My thoughts today are with my friends in the States, I am keeping my eye on the TV watching the awlful weather, and I'm hoping that you are not affected. We have rain here now, but it's nothing like what is expected over there. We are very lucky here in the UK. As I say my thoughts are with you all.
I am very happy this afternoon to be showing you our SIBOL No. 84! I am most grateful to 'Jean Nock' who very kindly assembled this Blanket for me. The Squares are so pretty, thank you to everyone that has sent me Squares for this Blanket.
I'm sure you will agree the Blanket has come together beautifully once again.
If you'd like to click on the Photo you will go over to Flickr where you can 'add note' to your Square.
I can't believe that this is our 84th ' Sunshine Blanket'. I am always most grateful for the Squares I receive and I get so many lovely emails from Ladies all over the World telling me how much they enjoy making Squares for our SIBOL project. So yes, we are working so hard for the Elderly in Nursing homes, but we are having fun as a group too.
I would like our SIBOLETTES to pop over to Ravelry, and have a read of the latest discusson board topic. Thank you.
Just to say also on Saturday I went into the House of Fraser where I met Erica from Rowan. It was lovely to sit with her and discuss Crocheting. I took along a simple Granny Square with me and I wanted advice on how I held my hook. She gave me some great advice and I came away with some beautiful yarn and a superb Crocheting Book which I'm going to have a go with.
The yarn I bought was Rowan 'purelife' which is 93% recycled wool 7% polyamide. Colours were 'Camper' and 'Garage'. The book 'Purelife home' has some great patterns inside including rugs, throws, cushions, table mats and pouffle cushions. It's nice to know that by using these yarns we are helping the Britsh hill farmers. If you'd like to visit the Rowan website follow the link.
Of course I gave Erica one of our SIBOL business cards so she could have a look at our SIBOL web-site and I also took my small photo album in to show her which includes over 80 'Sunshine Blankets'. She absolutely loved our Blankets Ladies and she said it was always nice to know what Ladies are getting up to with their Crocheting and Knitting. So Erica from Rowan, 'Hi!' and thanks for yesterday!
Well I think that's about all. Have a great Bank Holiday everyone and thanks again so much for the gorgeous Squares I receive.
