'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.
I NO LONGER ACCEPT KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES. I DO HOWEVER ACCEPT MADE UP BLANKETS FOR THE ELDERLY IN CARE HOMES. I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO RECEIVE YOURS! THANK YOU!

Thank you Kathryn. (D)

Good Evening Everyone!

Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today! 

First of all I would like to say many thanks to Crochet Concupiscence who has very kindly given 'SIBOL' a December Blog Award for 'Best Charity Crochet Blog!'.

 Wow! Thank you so much!  That's very nice of you indeed to recognise our work and also Congratulations to the other two Blogs who received an Award also! Why not pop over to Kathryns' Blog and say hello!


Today our Blankets were received safely in Dorset.

18 'Sunshine Blankets' ready to go to Dorset.

Yes we've been busy lately. This was my 'train of blankets'.

Amazing when you see them all lined up like this!

Bye for now and thank you!

  1. Congratulations Sue - you certainly deserve this award. :)

  2. Dear Sue,
    Awesome Crochet Blog Award...good for you!
    What a nice letter to receive, along with the photos of the nice folks with the big smiles!
    Thanks so much for sharing this!

  3. I congratulate you dear Sue,
    all the best have a good week,

  4. Great email and lovely to see the happy smiling faces of the staff receiving the blankets in Dorset but I bet their smiles aren't as wide as the recipients when they receive their very own blanket. They will appreciate not only the hard work and the beautiful creations but also know that people are thinking of them and others in need.
    Well done Sue and all Sibolettes, no wonder the blog received the " Best Charity Craft blog award" Well deserved.

  5. Thank you all very much for your comments. I am most grateful to Tracy and her Colleages for allowing me these photos.
    It is very important to me that you see where your Blankets have been delivered to.

  6. Great news Sue. Congratulations!
    Respect for all the work you do!
