'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.

Think Pink (3) is for sale by 'Silent Auction' Are you interested? Your chance to own one of our SIBOL Blankets!

Good Afternoon,

As you know we work very hard all year round making 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly in Nursing Homes, but we do also make Blankets to raise money for various Charitites.

Well today I am holding a 'Silent Auction' on the SIBOL Blog.  This is your chance to own one of our 'Think Pink' Blankets. This is the 3rd of our Think Pinks.  All proceeds will go to Breast Cancer Care here in the UK.



‘THINK PINK’ (3)


Breast Cancer Care Challenge.

This lovely, one-of-a-kind item was knitted by members of the ‘Sunshine International Blankets of Love’ group, who make blankets for the elderly. Members of this world-wide group knit or crochet squares and send them to the project’s co-ordinator, who then sews them together and distributes the finished blankets to the elderly via nursing homes. This particular piece was made by group members from the UK, Wales, USA, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

All proceeds from this auction will be donated to Breast Cancer Care, an essential charity for anyone affected by breast cancer. Some of the contributions here were made by actual sufferers and survivors of this relentless illness.

Each of the 25 squares on this special blanket, lovingly nicknamed 'Think Pink!', relates to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, either depicting a cancer ribbon or simply having been made with pink shades of yarn. The blanket is 35 inches square, making it a typical ‘lapghan’ size. It will also arrive specially presented in the style of all SIBOL items and include a card detailing the names and nationalities of all contributors.

We have chosen to open the bidding at £100.00 to reflect the huge amount of time and effort involved in this project, and the fact that this unique blanket has been made for a very worthy cause.



PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A SILENT AUCTION.

ALL BIDS ARE CONFIDENTIAL.
