'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.

Time is running out Ladies! Your chance to bid for a SIBOL 'Think Pink' Blanket.

Hello Everyone!

                                                              EBAY LINK!!


Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 125


This lovely, one-of-a-kind item was knitted by members of the ‘Sunshine International Blankets of Love’ group, who make blankets for the elderly. Members of this world-wide group knit or crochet squares and send them to the project’s co-ordinator, who then sews them together and distributes the finished blankets to the elderly via nursing homes. This particular piece was made by group members from the UK, USA, Belgium, the Netherlands and Australia. All proceeds from this auction (excluding P&P costs) will be donated to Breast Cancer Care, an essential charity for anyone affected by breast cancer. Some of the contributions here were made by actual sufferers and survivors of this relentless illness.

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


Each of the 25 squares on this special blanket, lovingly nicknamed 'Think Pink!', relates to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, either depicting a cancer ribbon or simply having been made with pink shades of yarn. The border has even been designed with a particular part of the anatomy in mind! The blanket is 35 inches square, making it a typical ‘lapghan’ size. It will also arrive specially presented in the style of all SIBOL items and include a card detailing the names and nationalities of all contributors.

'Think Pink' Breast Awareness Blanket.


We have chosen to open the bidding at £50.00, to reflect the huge amount of time and effort involved in this project, and the fact that this unique blanket has been made for a very worthy cause.

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

This beautiful Blanket was organised by Lotti on Ravelry and made by Ladies of our 'SIBOL' Group 'Thanks to everyone who took part!'


PLEASE POP OVER TO EBAY AND PLACE YOUR BID FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL BLANKET. IT IS SUCH A WORTHY CAUSE AND WE REALLY ARE TRYING TO RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS WE CAN FOR BREAST CANCER CARE  THANK YOU!
