Welcome to 'SIBOL'. Well I could certainly do with a Raspberry Sundae today. The weather here in the UK today has definitely improved but I'm not sure how long for! What could be nicer than to experience a 'Raspberry Sundae' today!
I know ..........it's not the usual Raspberry Sundae, this one is even better!
I have today received a Blanket from 'jenn1feranne' on RAVELRY. 'jenn1feranne' has very kind 'made and donated' this stunning Blanket. Do you know when I write these posts I'm using the same words over and over again, 'wonderful, beautiful, gorgeous, stunning' but to tell you the truth all of our Blankets lately are all of these words!
How kind of 'jenn1feranne' to once again make and donate a .......'wonderful' Blanket to 'SIBOL'. Tears came to my eyes this lunchtime as they always do when I receive a donated Blanket. To think that 'jenn1feranne' has sat down and made another Blanket is just so touching. For new Ladies visiting 'SIBOL' today 'making your own Blanket' is one of our optional Challenges. If you are interested then please pop over to our other Blog 'SIBOL CHALLENGES'. If you like making Squares and don't mind sewing or crocheting them together then this Challenge is for you!
As I have said many times before I am busy making the Olympic Blanket(s) and while I am doing so I can't be making our usual Blankets, and the donated Blankets are really helping me keep the numbers up. As soon as I have finished the Olympic work I shall be going out to Nursing Homes to take these gorgeous Blankets in to them.
Its' nice for the Elderly to throw a Blanket over their knees while sitting out in the garden. Maybe they have a wheelchair? Maybe they would like to simply put it on to their beds to admire while sitting in their rooms! Our Blankets have been accepted so well by all of the Nursing Homes and we really have a lot to be proud of Ladies. We have now between us made 151 'Sunshine Blankets'. Thanks to everyone that has helped our Group!
'jenn1feranne' has made this Blanket 'Raspberry Sundae' in lovely summery colours I think. The combinations of the three colours just work so well together. Why not take a look at the Squares in the Slide Show coming up now! The Blanket is her own design and she made it so well. Thank you very much once again 'jenn1feranne!'.
Isn't it lovely? I think 'SIBOL' must have the prettiest Blankets ever made don't you! We certainly are turning out some beauties!
I would also like you to see a gorgeous Square sent in by 'jenn1feranne'. This Square is called 'Croco-dahlia!'. Yes 'jenn1feranne' it is pretty! Very pretty indeed! Isn't it unusual?
I'm very grateful to you 'jenn1feranne'. Thank you!
I would like to thank everyone for the kind comments on the 'Emmerdale' Blanket. I have sent it off now so fingers crossed they will show it. That was another beautiful Blanket!
It took me ages to load this Flower Square up. I had trouble with my camera so I tried my iphone that didn't want to sync either, so problems, problems! Still I hope it's worth it in the end! I hope you have enjoyed looking at 'jenn1ferannes' beautiful work. Thanks for stopping by again!
