'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.

Daffodil Blanket 8/9

Good afternoon and welcome to 'SIBOL',

391 '8/9' Marie Curie Cancer Care Challenge.

I have had an exciting day today receiving two gorgeous blankets. One from Kianie which is on the post below so please scroll down and the other has been made up by Joannna.

Joanna very kindly offered to make up 25 Daffodil Squares for me. This is the 8th Daffodil Blanket that we have managed to make up so far. We only have one more to finish and then I can send them off to Marie Curie Cancer Care Hospices up and down the Country.

The Squares in this blanket once again are so pretty. We have Knitted and Crocheted ones and they are all superb.

Thanks to everyone who contributed Squares for this Challenge.

Joanna has used cream yarn to assemble the Squares and I think this makes them really stand out. 
I have had fun taking some photos this afternoon, so please have a look at our Slide Show now.

Created with flickr slideshow.

Let's take a look at the blankets so far now, all so different.

8/9 Marie Curie Cancer Care Challenge. Our Daffodil Blankets. Thank you!

Thank you Joanna, I'm extremely grateful to you for assembling this beauty!


I don’t know if you are all aware that postal charges have gone up quite drastically. 
Parcels are now priced by size instead of weight. Before a parcel weighing up to 750 grms was £2.20 second class standard rate. 

This is how they are charged now. 

Small parcels can measure up to 45cm lenght x 35cm width and 8cm depth. 2kg weight limit. 

Medium 61cm length x 46cm width 46cm depth 20kg weight limit. 

Standard rate price:- Small £2.60 up to 1 kg. £5.60 up to 2kg
                         Medium £5.20 up to 1kg  £8.00 up to 2kg
This is second class price. 1st class is a bit more. 
If when you pack your parcels they are more than the 8cm depth they will charge you for a medium parcel even if the width and length are ‘small’ size so beware and get your tape measure out!!

Of course parcels to go can give you very competitive prices. 
Here's the link,
thanks everyone!
