'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.

Our 'SIBOL' Blanket Train and a Ta - Dah!

Good Evening Everyone!

I am very pleased to be telling you that all of our 'Sunshine Blankets' have now left me. The other day I had fun in my Lounge making my 'SIBOL Blanket Train!'. Do you want to see it?

'Our SIBOL train of Blankets'

On the 15th November I went to St. Michaels Home for the Elderly in Olton, Solihull to deliver our Blankets. If you follow the link you will see the photos once again.


On the 16th November I visited St. George's Home for the Elderly in Solihull.


Our Blankets were received very well indeed.

Today finally I sent 18 of our Sunshine Blankets to Tracy at Dorset C.C. The Blankets should have left me two days ago but the courier 'Hermes' failed to turn up. I waited two days for them. Finally I had to rebook with City Link who I must say were brilliant. They arrived around lunchtime today, so I'm pleased to say they are now on their way. They should arrive Friday.

Where is this large box going to?

I have made three Blankets which will have to go forward for next year now. This is the third one which you haven't seen yet. So I have a new Ta - Dah for you! This is SIBOL 121!

Thanks to everyone that has contributed Squares for this Blanket. I loved them!

Another pretty Blanekt. Thank you to the Ladies who have sent me Squares for this one too. So pretty!

Here's a Slide Show for you!

Created with flickr slideshow.

I'm sure you will agree we've had a terrific number of Squares come in to make all of these Blankets! I really appreciate each one thank you!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' this evening.

  1. Dear Sue,
    Your SIBOL train! I love the way you laid them end to end turned up like that and photographed them.
    And #121 has such pretty colors.
    You see, you're on the way to 200!!!

  2. Congratulations on another year "under your belt". I'm sure the blankets will be well received and appreciated. You do a wonderful job Sue. Best wishes for a great year in 2012!

  3. Wow. Just look at all those squares. What a great year you/we have had.

  4. Amazing photo Sue, what an achievement.

  5. Gosh - don't the blankets look wonderful in your train. Tracy is going to get such a lovely surprise when the courier arrives! So exciting. Well done Sue!
