SIBOL BUTTERFLIES.

Butterflies are always needed for decorating our Sunshine Blankets and Shawls for the Elderly.
If you are interested in making any please follow the Link to Netties Blog in Australia. Thank you.




It is so important that email addresses and names are enclosed with your donations of Sunshine Blankets, Shawls and Butterflies please. Thank you!


'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.
I NO LONGER ACCEPT KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES. I DO HOWEVER ACCEPT MADE UP BLANKETS FOR THE ELDERLY IN CARE HOMES. I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO RECEIVE YOURS! THANK YOU! 'SIBOL' is a charitable outlet for your Crocheting and Knitting Skills why not join us? Together we are 'Sending a ray of Sunshine into the Lives of the Elderly.' All enquiries please contact Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net Thank you!

I'm up to date now! Pop in and look at our gorgeous Blankets!

Good Afternoon!

I'm very pleased to be now back with 'SIBOL' after a weeks break you might say. Due to 'family commitments' I have been unable to get the latest Squares and Blankets loaded up on Flickr and the 'SIBOL' Blog. I really have missed you all! 

May I ask you to keep scrolling down and read previous posts. There are a lot of new Blankets and Squares to see and I wouldn't want you to miss any.

I would like to thank the Ladies over on RAVELRY for keeping the threads going and I would like to thank everyone for contributing to 'SIBOL'.

There is quite a  lot going on with 'SIBOL'. We have a fantastic 'Freeform Challenge' taking place on RAVELRY. Would you like to take part? Please follow the Link!

We have 'SIBOL SWAPS'  Please follow the Link.

We collect 'Butterflies' in our Butterfly Club for our 'SIBOL' Blankets.

We  have a 'Daffodil Challenge' for Marie Curie Cancer Care. We are collecting 6" (15cms) Knitted or Crocheted Squares. Would you like to take part?  Please follow the Link.

We also need some Squares for our 'Faces Challenge' if you would like to take part.

I have all the other Challenges filled now I am just waiting for one 'Irish Rose' and one 'Snowman Square' to arrive.

In November I will be hand-delivering Blankets to homes locally and sending a few off to Dorset and Age Concern.

I would like to thank Sally very much indeed for the great help she has given me with 'take a bag'. She has made some beautiful Blankets and I have four which I would like to now show you.  These came in last week but I was unable to show them before now.

Thank you so much for helping me Sally.

Thanks to everyone for contributing Squares for this Blanket.

Thanks to everyone who contributed Squares for this Blanket. It's beautiful!

Aren't they wonderful? 

My SIBOL project started out in January 2010 and the Blanket today is Number 275.  We make and donate our Blankets to local Nursing Homes and to those people who are in need.  I originally wanted to make half a dozen Blankets and I'm absolutely over the moon that our 'SIBOL' project has been so very successful.

I know for a fact that when we deliver our Blankets they really are useful and  that they give a lot of comfort to the Elderly.  If you think you can help in any way please contact me
Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net

I shall leave you now with a Slide Show featuring the Blankets that Sally made up for us. Thanks again Sally.
