'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.

Butterflies are always needed !

Hi everyone!

This 'SIBOL' Blog is red hot! We have had such a lot to show you lately!

Please go back previous posts as we have a lot of blankets to show you.

Can I remind you if you have spare yarn in your stash, why not make some  Butterflies for 'SIBOL'. We use Butterflies to decorate our blankets and with the amount of blankets we are making and giving out to the Elderly we need to keep our Stash up. 

Here's the link to my friend Nettie in Australia.  A couple of years ago she made this great video tutorial and we started making them for our blankets. They really are easy peasy! It's a great way to use those odd bits of yarn up.

Let's take a look at 'creativegranny's' Butterflies received today!

Butterflies for our Stash! Thank you!

You can label your Butterflies if you want to. Your name and where you live. The Elderly in the homes  loved choosing their favourite coloured Butterfly and they certainly were talking points for them.

  1. Thanks for the link Sue. I had a quick go and although I made one or two minor miscalculations!!! I think my first butterfly is indeed a success. I will try and do a few for you and send them along. xx
