'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.

Please make us a Daffodil Square 'Knitted or Crocheted'.

Good Evening,

I just thought I would remind everyone visiting 'SIBOL' that we still need 'Daffodil Squares' for our Marie Curie Cancer Challenge. We aim to make 9 Daffodil Blankets which will be donated to the 9 Marie Curie Cancer Care  Hospices up and down the Country.

Over the last few days I have had enquiries from Knitting Groups asking whether the Challenge is still running. Yes it is. So far we have made these Daffodil Blankets.

Thanks to everyone who sent in Squares.


Thanks to everyone who sent in Squares.


A gorgeous Daffodil Blanket mandas challenges. Thank you so much!




Aren't they all lovely?  We also have 50 Daffodil Squares out to Ladies at the moment for assembling and we have at SIBOL HQ 13 Daffodil Squares waiting for others.

So we have collected so far 163 Daffodil Squares. I would like to thank everyone who has already sent in a Daffodil Square for this special Challenge.

The Challenge will end when we have completed the 9 Blankets. These Blankets will be given to the Hospices for either exhibiting in their reception areas or for their fund raising. I have been told from a member of Staff that it's a really lovely idea. I do hope you will find the time to join in the fun. It's so nice to
see the variation of Daffodil patterns. Once again all of our SIBOL Blankets are 'unique' no too are the same.

So if you are a Knitting Group why not pass the word on to the members in your Group? We accept Knitted and Crocheted Squares but they must be 6" Square please of course with a Daffodil Design.

I would like the Daffodils made in either Yellow, Orange or White but the background colour can be anything you like.. 

Two of our SIBOLETTES over in the States have very kindly designed us some Daffodil Patterns.
Would you like to try them?

I'll give you a link to  SIBOL - THE ARCHIVE.  You will find links on there for Luna and Debi.

They are both great Patterns.

Thanks for stopping by this evening.
Any queries please contact me
