'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.

'Garden Trellis'

Good afternoon and welcome to 'SIBOL',

A busy day today here at 'SIBOL' HQ. I have received Squares and a blanket so I'm really pleased you have popped in.

The Squares have arrived from Richtje in the Netherlands and if you would like to scroll down you will see them. Fantastic Squares thank you so much for making them.



Today I have received 'Garden Trellis' from Gina here in the UK. What a stunning blanket this is! Gina has very kindly suggested this name because it reminds her of square trellis with flowers on.

'Garden Trellis' made and donated by Gina.

Just look at the Squares in this blanket all made in such wonderful co-ordinating colours. What a beautiful summery blanket. Gina also very kindly made three Butterflies which she very kindly attached and I have added some Ribbon from my stash too. Your work is so beautiful Gina and I am very grateful to you for donating it for the Elderly. Thank you so much, what a treat for someone.

What a stunner! Thank you so much!

I've made a Slide Show for you Gina, sit back and enjoy!

Created with flickr slideshow.


I do still need 3 more Squares for our Daffodil Challenge. We have enough now for the 9 Blankets for the Marie Curie Hospices but I would like to make one more Blanket to raise money for Marie Curie. So if you are interested then please let me know how many you want to make.

Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net  thank you!


Did you see the Thank you card from Solihull Craft Group? Please scroll down if you didn't. It's so pretty and hand made by Julia.


As always I am terribly grateful to you for Squares that I receive and indeed Blankets.
Please check out UK's Postal Rates because they have recently changed and I wouldn't want you to be caught out with the charges. It's madness now.

Perhaps you would like to use a courier to send your Blanket?
Why not use Parcel2Go?
Here's the link.


If anyone would like to make and donate Blankets 'Knitted or Crocheted'  to the 'SIBOL' project I am very pleased to receive them. 

My address is available from
Sue on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net

Thank you so much.

All Blankets are delivered by myself to local Homes in my area and I'm very pleased to say that Gina's Blanket is SIBOL 399! 

One more to 400!

Thanks as always for your support!
