I am so pleased that the 'Fruit and Vegetable' Challenge is popular and we are getting some great Squares in for it. Today I have received four Squares from moragtodd (RAV). I absolutely love the Squares she has sent. What wonderful ideas.
I really love the grey background on these Squares. It's the first time moragtodd has sent Squares in to SIBOL, and I'm pleased to welcome you to the 'SIBOL' Group. You are now a 'SIBOLETTE!'
Thanks so much for Crocheting them.
I put a Challenge out to the Ladies on RAVELRY a few weeks ago. A 'Poem Challenge'. These are some of the poems I have received.
It,s living live to the max,thats what it means for me
Building ,creating things for someone how needs
Oosh and aash on raverly when you put your creations on the web
Lovely to be a sibolette
Lovely blankets do appear, throughout each year…
Made with loving and caring, our blankets are for sharing
Say it out loud … “We are Sibolettes and PROUD” !!
I’ll tell you.
But without SIBOL it wouldn’t be the same
Run by a lady whose name is Sue
She finds us plenty of challenges to do
We like to make blankets for the elderly in homes
But we don’t make blankets for garden gnomes.
Has challenged the Sibolettes to
take a short time
to make up a rhyme
Which is just what I’m trying to do……..
Scissors and row counters, rulers and tapes,
Six inch squares and odd scrumble shapes,
Mrs Twins’ challenges, our birthday bus,
Blankets for Oldies with much love from us.
There was an old lady in Brum
Who needed a blanket to keep warm
Sue heard of her plight
The Sibolettes hooks took flight
And a cosy warm blanket was born
From manda's challenges. (UK)
So long as its been made with loving hands
They’ve been around a hell of a long time
And no we don’t tire of them
So if that’s all you can make that’s fine!
And we don’t mind one bit,
In fact we hold special challenges
To test your talented gift
If you can donate 1 square or 2 or 3
Your gift will be highly cherished
And loved by our elderly
You’re welcomed one and all
Help turn Sues legacy into reality
Let no elderly person be alone anymore
Let them know that they are loved,
Let them talk about the beautiful squares,
Let them be wrapped with warmth and blessings
Let them know that someone ,somewhere, cares xxx
Mrs. Twins, inspired by her sweet grandmum
Called on SIBOLETTES in every nation
To warm up the elderly with our creations.
Sending love and warmth out to the elderly
This big, beautiful SIBOL family
That’s come to mean a great deal to me!
Crochet hook in hand and yarn at my feet
I frog and rework to make the square neat
For there’s an old lady waiting across the sea
To cuddle in this giant granny, made by me.
That when she uses it, she gets a little lift
Because you see, into each and every square
I have carefully woven a smile and a prayer.
Ladies these poems are superb! Not only are you all so wonderfully talented with your Crocheting and Knitting, you are so good with words too! What fun we have had over the past few weeks. Thanks for taking the time to put pen to paper.
Thank you too moragtodd for sending the Squares to SIBOL.
Thanks for visiting today!
