'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.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 95 'Cupcake Challenge'. UPDATED SQUARES FRIDAY.

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 95!

Hello Everyone!

Thank you very much for visiting 'SIBOL' today.

I am very pleased to be showing your our latest 'SIBOL' or 'Sunshine Blanket' as we like to call them.  For all new Ladies who have just joined us this Blanket is made up from Squares received for the 'Cupcake' Challenge we recently collected Squares for.

Every now and then we set a group of Challenges, and amongst the last ones the 'Cupcake' Challenge was suggested. It has been a real pleasure to receive your Squares both Crocheted and Knitted for this particular Challenge. I love the pastel colours used and it's been a real pleasure to make the Blanket up.

Not only do we work very hard all year round making Blankets for the Elderly in Nursing Homes, but we have lots of fun as a group too. Sharing patterns, exchanging ideas, helping each other. We also have SIBOL Swaps too.  There is a lot going over on Ravelry too, we have a nice bunch of Ladies over there, why not join us?

This 'Sunshine Blanket' is the 95th Blanket we have made. Can you believe that? 25 Squares in each totalling 2,375 assembled Squares amazing! Thank you so much to everyone that has made a Square at one time or another. Your Squares are always very appreciated.

We certainly are brightening up the lives of the Elderly in Nursing Homes with these gorgeous Blankets and at the same time having fun as a Crocheting and Knitting Group.  So thank you all very much.

I'm sorry I'm keeping you waiting. Let's have a look at SIBOL 95.

Thank you to all the Ladies who have contributed to the 'Cupcake Blanket'. 'Please add note if you see your Square'. I love your Squares Thank You!

Do you like it? I hope so.

This is quite a fast moving web site and there is always something to see. I do hope you will scroll down and see previous posts. Steph desperately needs help to finish SIBOL 100 Blanket. She is making a special Blanket to celebrate our 100th Sunshine Blanket and we need Ladies to make Jan Eaton Squares. We are trying to get 25 different Ladies to join in each making a special Jan Eaton Block as per Stephs design. Can you help please?  Pop over to Ravelry  this evening and put your name down if you would like to help.

Also Amanda is making a 'Snowman SIBOL' while I'm busy making the Challenge Blankets up would you like to help? Have you a special Snowman Square you would like to Knit or Crochet into this Blanket? Please join us.  Pop over to Ravelry and put your name down if you are interested.


Wonderful Red,Blue and White Squares thank you very much ! I love them.

I have received Squares from 'Jean Nock' this morning. Thank you so much for these pretty Squares. They are all fantastic Squares with great colour combinations. I am very grateful to you for sending them to SIBOL.
