'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.

Flower Power!

'creativegranny' has made and donated this beautfiful Granny Square blanket! Thank You!


Hi everyone!

It's Friday already I can't believe how quickly another week has flown by!  I am just popping in to show you a beautiful Flower blanket which has arrived from 'creativegranny' over on RAVELRY.  I only added 'creativegrany' as a friend a very short time ago and this morning I have received a beautiful Granny square blanket from her. This blanket is another 'stunner' and each square has been made in such interesting colours. Have a look at the centres in the squares on the close up photos I'm going to show you. 'creativegranny' also very kindly sent me some Flower squares which are the prettiest things too. If you look at the squares you will see a basket of Flowers this one is just so different.

I am extremely grateful to you 'creativegranny' and I know that your blanket will be very well received by our Nursing homes. I have taken some photos and put them into a Slide show for you so make yourself a cup of tea and have a look now at your beautiful blanket. As soon as my Olympic work is finished I shall be delivering our blankets to the Nursing Homes. 'creativegranny' you are now in our SIBOL 'Hall of Fame'. This is just a thread on RAVELRY, thanking you for your blanket. I do hope 'creativegranny' has inspired you to make a blanket for 'SIBOL'.

Did you enjoy the Slide show?  I hope so.

Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' and enjoy the weekend.
