'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.

'Going For Gold'

Hi Ladies,


'Going For Gold!' Olympic Challenge. Thanks to everyone that sent me Squares! Truly amazing! Please 'add note' if you see your Square(s)!



Our 'Going For Gold' Blanket is shown in the header picture.  I''m so proud of what we have achieved. Squares came in from as far as the States and Europe with Scotland, Wales and England too. Each and every Square has been made lovingly by members of our 'SIBOL' group and I would like to thank each and everyone of you!

We had such fun making this Blanket, it gave us the chance to design a Square, put our thinking caps on and rise to the Challenge. So whatever happens to our Blanket I know we did our very best with it. Fingers crossed we will have a successful outcome.

Just another photo....

Just my way of saying 'Thank you!'

Update - Lunchtime 30th May.

I have had two Squares arrive at lunchtime from 'beang' over on RAVELRY.  Thank you so much for these two Challenges Squares.

One is for 'One Heart Around The World'

'One Heart From Around The World' Challenge.

 and the other the 'Faces' Challenge.

Hi Ladies,

What a beautiful Knitted Blanket!


Time is running out to own these beautiful Blankets.  Why not pop over to our EBAY Links!

This lovely blanket was knitted by a member of the ‘Sunshine International Blankets of Love’ group, who make blankets for the Elderly. Members of this world-wide group make blankets and then the co-ordinator then distributes the finished blankets to Nursing Homes. This particular piece was made by a Lady here in the UK. All proceeds from this auction (excluding P & P costs) will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Society in the UK. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, affecting around 496,000 people in the UK.



Each of the 24 squares on this special blanket has been lovingly made by an Elderly lady in her 80’s who’s own mother suffered with Alzheimer’s. It is named after her mother ‘Mae’. The blanket measures 34” x 27” and is decorated beautifully with a red ribbon and has two gorgeous butterflies to represent ‘SIBOL’. The Blanket is made in Acrylic yarn and is machine washable.


Alzheimer’s is a cause very dear to her heart.

I love a good story and some pretty Squares!

Good evening everyone!

Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today. I do apologise I am very late posting on SIBOL. I have had a very busy few days with one thing and another and time has been very limited for me.

I would like to thank Violet at my Husband's office for the yarn she donated it is very nice of you and I know it will be terribly useful for our SIBOL project. Many thanks to you.

Thank you Violet for the yarn.


I would also like to thank Marilyn here in the UK for the gorgeous Flower Squares today. A wonderful selection of yarn make these Squares look so different. I am grateful to you Marilyn.

Marilyn G. (UK) Thank you for the Squares!


I love the centres very much indeed.


Now yesterday I had a surprise in the post. I received a parcel from Joanna here in the UK. Inside was a very pretty Granny Blanket and I would like to tell you the story behind the Blanket.

Joanna (UK) has made and donated 'Spring Day's in Memory of Bess. Thank you Joanna!


Joanna has a friend at work called Louise.  Louise always takes such an interest in Joanna's Knitting and Crocheting and in particular the Crocheted Squares she receives in the SIBOL Swaps.  Joanna has worked with Louise for over 15 years and she is a very close friend. Earlier this year Louise's Grandma sadly passed away and as her Grandma used to love to Knit and Crochet Joanna decided that her next blanket for SIBOL would be in memory of her. Her Grandma was called Bess.  Joanna asked Louise what her Grandma's favourite colours were and she set off making the blanket. 

Joanna has now finished the blanket and she took it into work to show Louise. As we love names for our blankets Joanna asked Louise if she would name the blanket. She decided to call it 'Spring Day's' as the colours reminded her of spring flowers and the green the new leaves unfurling on the trees.  She took it home to show her Mum  and they  both agreed that Grandma Bess would have loved it.

The name is absolutely perfect Joanna thank you. Louise's Grandma herself always Knitted for Charities like ourselves and Joanna tells me that Louise's Grandma would have loved the work that SIBOL is doing. When her eyesight got bad she continued Knitting but if she dropped a stitch she would put it to one side until Louise's Mum could go and pick the stitch up for her. She would then continue Knitting away! Amazing Lady!

Joanna also made two Butterflies for the blanket thank you and also some for our basket. Joanna tells me she has enjoyed making the Butterflies and it's a great idea for using those odd bits of yarn up!

SIBOL Butterfies for our Basket!


Would you please thank Louise for naming our Blanket and I love the fact that you have made it in her favourite colours. This Blanket will certainly give a lot of comfort to an Elderly person and how nice of you to make this in Memory of Bess. Thank you so very much to all of you!

Look at the Spring colours!


Pretty Butterflies adorn this wonderful Granny Blanket.




This is a gorgeous Blanket. You will be able to read the Story on SIBOL.


I am very pleased you are enjoying the SIBOL Swaps too Joanna. Thank you for taking part.

Well I think that's it for now.
Thank you for popping in to SIBOL today!

Pretty Crocheted Squares arrive today!

Hi Everyone!

Before we start. The Blanket at the top of the Blog is called 'Dorothy' and it was made and donated by Sara (UK). Beautiful isn't it? It's one of the 'mile-a-minute' Blankets and is found on 'You Tube!'.

I am very happy to be showing you these gorgeous Crocheted Squares which have arrived today!

Susanne here in the UK, has very kindly made them and sent them to SIBOL. Just take a look at these Squares I am sure you will love them. They are made beautifully in the most wonderful colour combinations and patterns! I am terribly grateful to you Susanne, thank you.

Susanne F. (UK) Your Squares arrived today! Thank you!


A closer look in the Slide Show now!




Created with flickr slideshow.


Wonderful aren't they? I love them. Thank you Susanna.

We seemed to have started a SIBOL Butterly Club over on RAVELRY, why not join us? There is a great video tutorial from Nettie in Australia and we also have a lovely pdf we would like to share!

We also seemed to have gone batty for 'yarnbombing'. Well it's getting us outside isn't it?  I went to Hatton Locks, nr Warwick on Monday and I left some SIBOL Butterflies hanging on the rail there. Can't think of the word. To my amazement this morning a Lady left a message on RAVELRY saying she had 'googled me!'. She found out who had left them. See you can't keep anything secret can you? What fun! Join us on SIBOL 'yarnbombing!'.  We're yarnbombing for the Diamond Jubilee!

Hatton Locks, Nr Warwick. Our 'SIBOL' Yarnbombing!'


Why not make a SIBOL Butterfly and leave it in a really unusual location? Thanks jenn1feranne for this idea! It's great. Maybe you could pack one or two in your holiday bag? Let's have some photos in Ladies!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' this afternoon and thank you Susanne for your pretty Squares!

It's all go this weekend!

Hi Everyone!

I haven't stopped all weekend doing our SIBOL work. First of all we had the SIBOL Giveaway which was very successful and Congratulations to all of the Winners! For details of who won please go back a couple of posts.

Then we had our Olympic Ta - Dah's. I'm so pleased you liked the Blankets once again please go back to the previous post. Your kind comments are very much appreciated. I am terribly grateful to you all for sending in such wonderful Squares. It was a joy to make the Blankets up to raise money for Alzheimer's here in the UK. I am in the process of organising EBAY for 'Rule Britannia', 'Jubilation', and 'Mae'. The large Blankets 'Going For Gold' and also 'Flying The Flag' will be auctioned nearer to the Olympics. I thought with the Diamond Jubilee coming up shortly it might be a good time to try and auction these Red, White and Blue Blankets more or less straight away. I'll keep you posted.

Then on Saturday morning I had three Blankets arrive from Sara H here on RAV. I am so grateful to Sara she has crocheted three amazing Blankets and she is donating them all to SIBOL!

The first one is called 'Joyce' This is such a pretty Blanket and I really think it has a 'vintage' feel to it. I love the colours she has used in this Blanket. Actually the yarn was donated to Sara by her aunt and Sara was telling me that her aunt's mother' recently passed away so she would like to name the Blanket 'Joyce' in her aunts' mother's memory. I will be most happy to do this for you Sara thank you very much.

Thank you Sara for Blanket 'Joyce'.


Beautiful isn't it? Let's take a look at the next Blanket that Sara donated. This one is a Large Granny Square and it's been named 'Fred'.

Thank you Sara, a beautiful Granny Square Blanket. Super colours!


I love the colour combinations Sara!

Then finally, I love them all but this Blanket is my favourite. It's called 'Dorothy' and it's a 'mile-a-minute' afghan. Don't you just love this one?

This is a 'mile-a-minute' afghan. This is just so pretty. I love the colours that Sara has used. It's superb! Thank you so much!


I have seen video tutorials on You Tube of someone making one of these. I'll put this on my 'to-do list!'.

Sara, you have been so busy. You are so very kind donating these beautiful Blankets of yours to SIBOL. Thank you so much! Let's take a look at your Slide Show now!






Created with flickr slideshow.



Wow! That's all I can say! Thank you very much!

Have you ever thought of joining our SIBOL RAV GROUP? We welcome new Members. We have monthly Swaps of Squares and small gifts, a SIBOL Butterfly Club, and we are also going to do some Diamond Jubilee 'yarnbombing'. Why not pop over!

Finally, there is always such a lot going on in our Group, I wouldn't want you to miss anything so please read previous posts!

 Thanks to everyone for your support.

Our Olympic Challenge is finished!

Hello Everyone!

We have been working extremely hard over the last year making and collecting Squares for the Olympic Challenge. My aim was to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society here in the UK. I invited you all to send in Squares to celebrate the Olympic Games coming to London 2012. You certainly put your thinking caps on because we've had over 300 Squares. Some in red, white and blue, and others showing Athletes, Flags, Olympic flame, Olympic rings etc.,  I can never thank you all enough for the wonderful work you have put into these Squares. You certainly have used your imagination.

I want to first of all show you a Blanket which shows 100 Flags, crocheted by 'akarapacha' (Santha) in Fort Myers, USA. Such a lot of work went into these Squares and I can never thank Santha enough for her dedication to our SIBOL Olympic Challenge!




The patience she must have had making all of these Squares. They are the Flags of some of the Countries taking part in the Olympic Games London 2012. Wonderful work Santha! Thank you so much for making them and sending them across the pond!

The Blanket comprises of 100 6" Flag Crocheted Squares.
The Blanket measures 63" Square.



The next Blanket comprises of 130 Squares, both Knitted and Crocheted. You all certainly rose to this Challenge making it so very interesting! As I said at the beginning of this post we have had everything included in this special Blanket. Athletes, Olympic Flame, Flags etc., You have sent in the most amazing Squares! I can never thank you all enough!

THIS PHOTO HAS TEMPORARILY BEEN REMOVED.


There will be lots more photos to follow I just wanted you to see the finished Blankets. 

I am very pleased also to be showing you our other smaller Blankets which have been made with the Olympic theme in mind.

First of all we have 'Rule Britannia'. 25 gorgeous Red, White and Blue Squares all in beautiful patterns. Thank you to everyone that has contributed these Squares. They really are so pretty!



Then we have 49 Squares mostly in Knitted, a few Crocheted! This one is called 'Jubilaton'.


These Blankets will be auctioned on EBAY to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society here in the UK. Let's hope we can raise a fair amount for them.

Thanks to everyone that very kindly took part in my Giveaway. If you remember we were chosen as 'Club of the Month' in the 'Knit Today' magazine.  If you would like to go back a post you will be able to read the Winners' names! Congratulations to you all!

I would also like to thank Sara for very kindly sending me in three gorgeous Blankets today. As I was taking photos of the Olympic Blankets this afternoon  I really didn't have time this afternoon to showcase her work. But please be assured I will do it as soon as possible. The Blankets that she sent in are absolutely gorgeous. She made a beautiful purple and green striped 'mile-a-minute' afghan, a Large Granny Square Blanket, and a pink, green, blue and cream squared Blanket which has a vintage feel to it, well I think so. I can't wait to show them to you so please stay tuned!

Once again thank you so very much for all your hard work with the Olympic Challenge. I have had great fun working with your Squares and I am so pleased you enjoyed this Challenge.

Thank you so much for popping in to SIBOL today! I am off to bed it's 1.55am!

Nitey nite....

Butterfly mania!

Good Afternoon!

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!

We seem to have started something over on RAVELRY, a bit of a Butterfly craze!
As you know Butterflies are rather like a 'trade mark' for our Group. Back in the early days
of SIBOL we started using a beautiful Butterfly tutorial over on Nettie's Blog in Australia. The idea
of putting Butterflies on to our Blankets for the Elderly really took off and as I mentioned the other day
to the Ladies on RAVELRY that my stock was near to the end, they very kindly started Crocheting for me!
It is so nice to have a good supply of Butterflies to hand this really saves me a lot of work.

Today I have received a really pretty selection from 'creativegranny' here in the UK. She has really got 'hooked' on making these Butterflies and so have the other Ladies. If you want to join our Butterfly Club please follow the link! These Butterflies are made in all sorts of yarn and I really love the sparkle in some of them too! Thank you so much 'creativegranny!'

Here's your Butterflies!

'creativegranny' (UK) Thank you for these gorgeous Butterflies!


I am visiting a Craft Group next year and I plan to take a basket of Butterflies with me. The idea of attaching a tag on to the Butterflies labelling your name and country is brilliant and Bev (baw1812) has very kindly offered to send a file over to any one interested  for the tags. So if you are interested, pop over to the RAVELRY link and send her a pm!

We are having such fun with these Butterflies please join us!

Two Olympic Ta - Dah's for you!

Good Afternoon everyone!

Welcome to 'SIBOL'.

I am very pleased to be showing you two finished Olympic blankets. The first is a 25 Square one which is Crocheted and Knitted. The Squares are all of different patterns and they really are so pretty! I really enjoyed making this blanket up.

Thanks to everyone that contributed squares for this Olympic Challenge!


Beverley over on RAVELRY has just named this blanket 'Rule Britannia'.

The other blanket today is a 49  Square one. The Squares have come in mainly from craft groups here in the UK, mostly Knitted with a few Crocheted ones. 

Knitted and Crocheted Squares.


There are two other blankets. One is finished the other I have the border to do. But it won't be long now before I can show you them. One is 100 Square and the other is 130!  A lot of work!

Thanks to everyone that contributed Squares for my Olympic Challenge. These blankets will be auctioned to raise money for Alzheimer's here in the UK!

I'll leave you with some more photos.

A beautiful day here in the UK, I've just been out for a drive in 'Mr T's' open roof car! We stopped at a Garden centre and had a cream tea! How lovely! I know I'm on my slimming plan but......one cream tea won't hurt will it? You won't tell will you?

Bye for now
