'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.

A donated Blanket called 'Mary'.

Good Morning and thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!

I am very happy to be showing you a pretty Blanket which arrived in my porch this morning. It surely is a stunner!  Sarah over on RAV has been very busy indeed these last few weeks making and donating two Blankets to 'SIBOL'.

The first one if you remember had an 'autumny feel' to it. I'll show you.

Sarah (UK) has very kindly made and donated this beautiful Blanket to SIBOL.

Sarah asked if we could call this one 'Arthur' in Memory of her Grandfather-in-Law. A great name for a man's Blanket!

Then this morning this beauty arrived!

Sarah (UK) (RAV() 'Mary' made and donated to 'SIBOL'.

Yes tied up in beautiful ribbon and I went along to my Butterfly stash where I found two perfect Butterflies to add to the Blanket!

I walked outside to take some photos and I'm sure you would like see some more of the Blanket.

This 2nd Blanket is going to be called 'Mary'. Mary was the wife of Arthur.
Sarah said 'It's hard to think of one without the other so it would be nice if Blankets 1 and 2 were named after them.'

These Squares are so beautiful!

Your kindness is very much appreciated Sarah. Thank you so much! I love both Blankets and what a lovely thing to do in Memory of Arthur and Mary.

Sarah also sent along two green Squares for our 'SIBOL Stash'. She certainly makes pretty Squares! Thank you.

Sarah (RAV) Your Squares arrived today with the beautiful Blanket! Thank you very much!

If anyone would like to make and donate a Blanket to 'SIBOL' you are most welcome to help.  This is a great way of sharing our passion for Crocheting, and it's also helping me get more Blankets out to our Elderly folk.

All details about making a Blanket are on 'SIBOL CHALLENGES'.  There are other Challenges too listed if you would like to join our group.

I think that is all for now. You never know there might be a second post!

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Dear Sue,
    Arthur and Mary, what a wonderful way to remember loved ones. Those blankets are beautiful. How nice for you to have entire blankets like that sent to you, all perfectly made and all you have to do is find matching butterflies and photograph them! Fantastic!

  2. Those charity blankets are divine and so unique with the crocheted charms on, I love them. I've just crocheted a little owl cell phone cover for my niece for her Tracfone LG800G smart prepaid phone, it cost her $50 and because it's got a big touch screen she wants to protect the glass from scratches or from cracking from a fall. I hope you don't mind if I use your butterfly idea for my mom's ipad cover which I want to do next. I can't crochet beautiful butterflies like your's but I'll take some pretty cotton material or felt to sew on for the wings.
    I love your cheerful blankets and the way you wrapped them up so beautifully.
