'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.

Good Morning and Welcome to 'SIBOL!'.

I am inviting you to join our RAVELRY SIBOL GROUP.

 'SIBOL' is a very active Blog, I know because I spend hours up-dating it. I really enjoy showing you the new Blankets that have been made either by myself or other 'SIBOLETTES' but I have to load them up as soon as they are available. If I don't I get muddled...... So please scroll down and see what's new!

If you scroll down below this post you will  see two beautiful 'Sunshine Blankets' that have arrived today. They have been assembled by 'The Wool Stop' and she has made a fantastic job of them. So thank you very much! Below that we have 'Fireworks Surprise' made by 'jenn1feranne' a most wonderful 'Sunshine Blanket' that she has kindly made and donated herself. Thank you!

I am very pleased to be showing you 'Twit-Twoo!' - Owl Challenge. I am very grateful for all of the Squares that I have received for this particular Blanket.  The Owls that have flown in from all corners of the World are absolutely beautiful. Our friends in the States, Europe and the UK have once again used their creativity to make these wonderful Squares.  That's what I like about SIBOL - It's a place to show our creativity off. We work very hard for the Elderly making these 'unique Sunshine Blankets' and I know they are all so well received but it's also the fun that we have putting them together. Sharing ideas, showing photos of what we have achieved and most importantly the friendship that we share amongst ourselves.  I always welcome new members to our Group too, so please don't be shy pop over on the link at the top of the page. We really want lots of new members to join us, so that when we start our Challenges very soon we will have lots of new friends to share the fun.

I particularly like the 'picture Square' Sunshine Blankets. Yes it is interesting to see what we can come up with, but the Elderly in the Homes really enjoy receiving them too. It's a talking point for them. Last Christmas I delivered around 20 picture Square Blankets to a Home in Olton near to where I live. Each one of the Residents received one on Christmas Day. Can you imagine what they spoke about all day long? Yes our Blankets. They  really are beautiful when finished.

I have two Challenge Blankets left now, the Musical and Irish Rose. I hope to get these finished 'very soon!'.

Let's take a look at our cute Owls now!
Thanks everyone for sending them across the miles!
