'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!

'Ta - Dah! 'One for The Guys!'

Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 124. 'One for the Guys!'

Hello Everyone!

Thank you very much for visiting SIBOL today! 

I'm very happy to be showcasing a beautiful Blanket which was donated to SIBOL yesterday. It has been made by Craftymizz (Steph) and it's absolutely gorgeous!  This really is a wonderful pattern and the colours co-ordinate so well together.

I have made some of our usual Butterflies to go with the Blanket and I have added some ribbon too.  I'm very grateful to you Steph.

If you would like to have a go at the Butterflies then please follow the link to Netties' Blog over in Australia!

It's really very kind of you to donate this Blanket to SIBOL and I know for a fact that it will give someone a lot of warmth and comfort knowing that someone has lovingly made it.

Let's have a look at Stephs' Blanket now!

This Blanket has very kindly been made and donated by Craftymizz (Steph) (UK)

Created with flickr slideshow.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at Steph's Blanket!Thank you Steph.

Thanks to everyone that has donated Squares to the 'Your Local Landscape' Challenge, I am in the process of finishing the Blanket off now.

I do hope everyone has a great weekend and please stay tuned to SIBOL, our 'Think Pink' Blanket will have it's Ta - Dah! very soon indeed! You will have a chance to bid for the Blanket on EBAY! This will raise money for 'Breast Awareness'.

Bye for now!
