'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.

300 'Sunshine Blankets' - Thank you!

Thanks to everyone that has supported 'SIBOL' since January 2010. We have now made 300 'Sunshine Blankets!'.

Good Morning,

We have now made 300 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly and I would like to thank everyone that has helped me with the 'SIBOL' project.  Without your help we could have not been so...successful! I really appreciate your kindness.

Today I would like to thank Pamela for the beautiful Squares received today. 2 - Think Pinks and 1 - Daffodil Square. These Squares are amazing! I love the patterns on the Think Pinks and the Daffodil is so delicate looking.

I am grateful to you Pamela for knitting a border around the Square because I find it easier to join when there is a firm border. Let's take a look at the Squares now and a BIG THANK YOU!

Marie Curie Cancer Care Challenge.

Think Pink (5) Beautiful thank you!

Pamela (UK) Your Squares have arrived! Thank you!

Great for our Blankets Pamela, I love them!
