'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.

Busy few days here at HQ.

Good evening!

I have peace here at HQ at the moment, so I'm determined to get these blankets loaded up on to SIBOL. Mr. Twins is on holiday this week and we have been out and about and I have found it difficult to get down to my normal routine with my SIBOL work. So please....forgive me. I do like to keep on top of our Blog posts, it's so difficult if I get behind.  Over the last few days I have had half a dozen arrive all so beautiful and I've been longing for you to see them.

The question has been how do I show you them? I decided to write a seperate Blog post for each person. So please.......go back a few posts and catch up with them.

Let's start with 'The Wool Stop'. Judith very kindly sent me some Charity yarn a few weeks ago, do you remember?

With thanks to 'The Wool Stop'.

Beautiful yarn thank you so much!  Judith also very kindly offered to make up a blanket for me so I sent her one of our 'take a bags'. A few days ago the blanket arrived and I would love you to see it. A lot of the squares for this blanket were made over in the States. They simply are so eye-catching! Judith you have done an amazing job on this blanket. I love it, great border too.

Thanks 'The Wool Stop' for assembling this blanket for me. Thanks everyone for contributing squares!

Isn't it nice? I love it.

Judith also sent me two other Crocheted blankets which she had put together herself and very kindly donated to SIBOL.

A gorgeous blanket thank you so much!

Trebles make up these squares, what a good idea! I love the blue and white colour combination. So striking Judith!

Let's take a look at the other one now.

A gorgeous blanket so different!

This one has definitely got to be for a Man! It is just so warm, I can imagine some Elderly Gentleman with this over his knees.  Look how Judith has placed the squares in this blanket. Love the brown squares with the lighter ones mixed in. The border really finishes it off so well too!  I have found some great ribbon to decorate them and also some pretty butterflies!

I have combined all three blankets in to a Slide Show Judith, thank you so much for helping me with 'take a bag' and also for donating these two other blankets. They are all absolutely superb!

Why not visit 'The Wool Stop?'

As I have said there are a lot of other blankets to see from Liz, Marilyn and Bev, so please go back and have a read. 'SIBOL' is a place where we can be creative, and I do hope you are inspired from what you see!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' this evening and thanks for being patient!
