'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.

Celebrating our blankets today!

Good morning to you today!

I'm just letting you know that I have made a Slide Show of all our Sunshine Blankets.
If you pop over to Flickr you will be able to see what we have achieved since January

Such a lot of gorgeous blankets. These squares have come in from all over the world and as we
reached our 200th blanket I thought it was worth celebrating!


I would like to thank everyone that supports 'SIBOL' by sending squares and indeed donating blankets too.
These blankets have been very well received in Nursing homes in the UK. We certainly are bringing a few smiles to the faces of the Elderly.

I am so proud of everyone and also because we have now raised as a Group the following

1,250.00   --      Alzheimer's (UK)
   102.00   --      Breast Cancer Care
   112.00   --      Prince William & Kate Middletons Charity Gift Fund
     95.00   --      Mencap


I think that is absolutely amazing. Thanks to everyone that contributes to 'SIBOL'.  Well done!

  1. Lindo o gesto. Parabéns a todos que participaram, o mundo fica bem melhor com ações assim. Bjs.

  2. I found your blog through netmums and I was really touched by what you guys are doing.

    Keep up the great work.

    P.S. I've tried to do granny squares and always end up lost...I can only do straight lines with crochet. LOL ;)
