Don't you just love colour!

Good Afternoon and thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!

This morning I received a parcel from joyce28.  joyce28 had very kindly offered to help me out with an Owl Square which I desperately needed  to finish the Challenge. I'm sure you will agree this Owl is so lovely.

joyce 28 'Owl Challenge' - many thanks!

I took him outside and sat him on my tree stump out in the garden. I thought he looked quite happy there.  I think he looks so feathery with his beautiful variegated yarn. Love his big eyes too! Thank you very much for sending him on to me joyce28.

But it wasn't just an Owl I received!  It was quite a large parcel and I kept having a feel. Could it be Squares? Could it be a Blanket? I couldn't wait to find out. To my amazement was a beautiful coloured Granny Square Blanket. I wanted to take photos earlier but I had to meet Little Miss Twins at lunchtime. I couldn't wait to play with this wonderful piece of art.

Now I'm keeping you in suspense!  Here goes. I am very pleased to be showing you a beautiful Granny Square Blanket made by joyce28 and I know you are just going to love it.


Isn't it absolutely gorgeous|? I love the bright colours. When I have visited the Homes the Residents have told  me how they love bright colours. This Blanket is going to be ideal for an Elderly person and what a complete surprise! I had no idea joyce28 was going to send a Blanket with her beautiful Owl.

I have made a Slide Show for you joyce28! Sit back and enjoy. Thank you so much for this fantastic Blanket.

Another beautiful Blanket made and donated to 'SIBOL',  how kind of joyce28. Thank you so much!

I had a letter today from Breast Cancer Care thanking us for our 'Think Pink' (2) donation for £200.00.

It read:-

Dear Sue,

On behalf of Breast Cancer Care, I would like to say a big thank you for the £200.00 that has been raised through the sale of a Think Pink  blanket. Please do pass on our appreciation to the ladies of the SIBOL group for their kindness in supporting our work.

Nothing like a letter! I did put the payment through on-line but I requested a Letter to confirm. If you would like a copy please mail me.

I am busy finishing off the Owl Blanket and the Snowman Blanket. I hope it's not too long before I can show you.

Thank you joyce28 and thanks everyone for stopping by!
