Welcome to 'SIBOL'.
I have two beautiful SIBOL Blankets to show you today. They have been sent from Fiona in the Netherlands. These Blankets are just so pretty, I love them. A great choice of colours has been used in both Blankets and Fiona has even put her own little cards on which have Flowers and Butterflies! Fiona has incorporated the Wiggles Square in to both Blankets along with other patterns too. A lot of thought has gone in to these Blankets and also in to the parcel that she sent to me. Yarn, Butterflies, Ribbon , Hearts and even a little Lotus Flower a gift for me. Each tag tells me the name of the Blanket and why she called it that.
The first Blanket is called 'Beach Flowers'.
It reminds her of the sea and the beach in the Netherlands.
'I hope that it will bring some sunshine in to somebody's life'.
The second one which is called 'Jurgen's Sunshine'.
She says, " I called this Blanket ' Jurgen's Sunshine' in honour of my son Jurgen. (8). A boy full of joy and sunshine with blue eyes and that's why I made this Blanket, blue, orange (nl) and his favourite colour yellow.
I hope that it will bring joy and sunshine in to somebody's life"'.
These two Blankets are just so beautiful. I can tell Fiona is really loving SIBOL. It's giving her a chance to try her Squares out and to make something so worthwhile too. I'm terribly grateful for the parcel today Fiona and when I make my next delivery these Blankets will go at the top of the pile!.
Now lets' take a look at Fiona's Slide Show!
Today I had a phone call from Jennifer. Jennifer rang my home to tell me that the 'Afternoon Tea' SIBOL had reached it's destination. I am always happy to know that the Blankets have arrived safely if they are ones I can't personally deliver. This particular Blanket was going to a Lady at Barley Close Care Home, Axminster, Devon. She is unfortunately severely disabled and I have been told that she will love it.
Jennifer very kindly had her photo taken holding the Blanket.
It was so nice to speak to you Jennifer. Jennifer has recently left Barley Close and now works out in the Community but she found time to go back and give the Blanket to the Lady there. Thank you so much.
Well I think that's it for now. Two beautiful Blankets from Fiona 'thank you!' and one Blanket delivered to Devon.
I do hope these Blankets have inspired you to pick up your hook. There are indeed some wonderful Squares in books and the internet and although I have a 'SQUARE STOP' on at the moment, why not put them into a Blanket for SIBOL? All details are over on SIBOL CHALLENGES.
Thanks for visiting today!
