'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.

'Your Chance to Win a SIBOL Blanket! 'Spread the Word on your Blogs!



'THINK PINK' BLANKET



Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 125


Hello Everyone!

Thank you very much for popping in to 'SIBOL' today!

Towards the end of last year one of our 'SIBOLETTES' dear Lotti over on Ravelry made a suggestion to our Group. She suggested making a Blanket in aid of 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month'.  She thought it would be a really nice idea if we made a 'Think Pink' Blanket. What are we good at as a Group? Making Squares and of course Blankets! Our 'SIBOLETTES' were thrilled with this idea and soon after Squares started arriving at Lotti's home.


The Squares had to be made with 'Breast Cancer Awareness' in mind, so pink Squares of course were ideal. They came in all shades of pink and they all had the most wonderful designs. When the Squares were collected, Lotti set about assembling the Blanket.  Several days ago the Blanket arrived back at SIBOL HQ and then I added our famous 'SIBOL' trademark, 'our Butterflies!'.

Today I am very happy to be showcasing this beautiful Blanket and I'm sure you will agree Lotti has made a most wonderful job of it. Each Square has been lovingly made by our 'SIBOLETTES' and it has been an absolute joy to see these gorgeous Squares arrive. I'm absolutely thrilled with this Blanket.

Now the exciting part!  Today we are announcing that this beautiful 'Think Pink'  Blanket will be auctioned over on  EBAY.  This will be 'YOUR CHANCE TO WIN' this stunning Blanket by placing a bid! All proceeds will be sent off to this worthy cause which affects so many women all over the World. I'm sure everyone will agree this is a wonderful idea, but we need your help!

I'm sure you are eager to see the Blanket now.

A Ta - Dah for you! Our SIBOL 'Think Pink' Blanket made by SIBOLETTES from all over the World!


Thank you to Lotti on RAV for co-ordinating this special Challenge.


'Think Pink' Breast Awareness Blanket.


This is a stunning Blanket and I'm very proud of you all! Thank you Lotti!

Would you like to help our Group? Please spread the World on your Blogs! You are most welcome to take a photo of our 'Think Pink' Blanket off our 'SIBOL' web site and give the EBAY link too.  Hopefully, between us all this Blanket can really raise a substantial amount of money. 

Once again may I thank Lotti for organising and assembling this Blanket. Also thanks to each 'SIBOLETTE' that has donated 'PINK' Squares for this particular Challenge. I am really most grateful to each and everyone of you!
