Well it's been quite an exciting day here at HQ It felt like that Christmas Day feeling all over again! I went to my porch this morning and there on the floor I found this.
A large parcel for Squares I thought to myself. I thought maybe someone has donated 'SIBOL' some yarn. I had a feel and a prod....Then started opening it...... To my amazement I saw a Blanket, I could not believe my eyes. It was not just one Blanket, there was a 2nd and a 3rd and a 4th! and two Squares! Tears literally came to my eyes this morning. Then I found a card it was from Chalky's World.
If you click on it you will be able to read it better.
Linda at Chalky's World had collected Squares from Ladies at the MSE thread. Now if you don't know this thread it is well worth a visit. The Ladies are just a wonderful bunch, they have very regularly donated Squares to SIBOL for various Challenges and not only do they Crochet and Knit for me, they do it for other Charitites such as Loving Hands. They work very hard all year round. Linda has put their Squares together just so beautifully I cannot thank her enough, I was just so tearful this morning. I'm amazed to be honest because it was only the other day that I was reading her blog and she was showing all the beautiful things that she had made for Charities little did I know that the Blankets were coming our way! Secret Chalky!
The kindness shown to me by Linda and the Ladies at MSE is just so lovely. The Squares and Blankets are all so superb! Thank you all so much.
I went out into the Garden to take some photographs this morning, I couldn't wait to share them with you.
So we have four Ta - Dah's! I know that takes us up to 94 now. Golly 6 more. You know each one of our Sunshine Blankets is 'unique'. This is one of my Husbands favourite words on finishing a Blanket. He always says there is not one that is the same. 'Each one is unique!'. Our Elderly folk are going to have a lot of pretty Blankets over their knees this Winter don't you think? We certainly will be brightening up some Nursing Homes. I can't wait to deliver them in October/November.
Now let's have a look at these MSE Blankets.
I'm sure you will agree these Blankets are just the prettiest things. They even came with Crocheted chains to wrap them up and one of them SIBOL 91 even had two Butterflies with it. I have to say I have a 'Butterfly Stash' as well as 'Square Stash' so I found some Butterflies already made to help me. I just couldn't wait to load these photos up.
Today we will have four Ta - Dah's in our Slide Show. Sit back Linda and the Ladies on MSE and have a look at your Squares. Can you spot your own?
I have been doing SIBOL work all day today. Not only did I have Blankets delivered but I also had such lovely Squares. They are from Carol in the UK. Carol is a new 'SIBOLETTE' welcome to our Group! I do hope you enjoyed making the Squares for SIBOL. It's a really lovely set of Squares and I have been outside to take some photos for you. I was also telling Carol how pretty her Granny Squares looked, they have wonderful colour combinations. .
I do hope you enjoyed your Slide Show Carol, thank you for sending the Squares.
Tonight I hope to continue with our Cupcake Blanket, so I'll keep you posted on that one.
Thanks to the Ladies over on RAV for keeping a couple of Challenges going for me. If you are interested in
helping please pop over to RAV our SIBOL Group. The link is over on the right hand side of this blog. I can't get signed in at the moment.
