As you know we work very hard all year making 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly in Nursing Homes, but on occasions it's nice to make our 'Charity Blankets' and our 'specials'.
While watching 'Emmerdale' a TV soap opera a few weeks ago, I noticed as usual the Crocheted Blankets on the backs of the sofa in the 'Dingle Household'. Well I thought it was about time they had one of our 'SIBOL' Blankets! So I quickly got to work asking Ladies on RAVELRY if they wanted to help me. Well any excuse to get those Crocheting Hooks and Knitting Needles out! They jumped at the chance to make a Flower Square in really bright 'noticeable' colours. The Squares started pouring in and today I have great pleasure in showing you our 'Emmerdale' Blanket.
I would like to thank everyone for taking part. This really was such a fun Blanket to make. I do hope we get to see our Blanket on TV. There is no guarantee they will show it, but I'm going to do my best!
I am going to send it to 'Jane Cox' who play 'Lisa Dingle'. I have the address so all I have to do is to type the letter and tell her about our Group and send it off to them.
I hope you like it, thanks everyone!
Thanks to annlynncraft over on RAV, I have today received these gorgeous Squares. All made in beautiful colours and great designs. She also made some Stars for our Blankets to hang on with the Butterflies.
I am always 'extremely grateful' for embellishments! She has sent in a selection of Hearts, Flowers, Butterflies before and now Stars! I think we ought to call her our 'Embellisment Co-Ordinator'. If anyone else wants to send in Butterflies, or anything else then please do they are always so useful!.
I'm off to pack this parcel up! Thanks everyone!
