'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.

A busy week here at 'SIBOL'

Good morning to you all!

422 Liztelf made and donated thank you!

423 'Effin braids' by Liztelf

Thank you so much for taking the time to pop in to the 'SIBOL' Blog.

I have had a really busy week here at 'SIBOL' HQ, with lots to show you so I do hope you will scroll down and read the previous posts.

This morning I have received two beautiful Blankets from Liztelf who lives in Cumbria here in the UK.

423 'Effin Braids' (Right)  422 ?     'Liztelf' (UK) Thank you!

Liztelf is one of our members on RAVELRY and with the support of other 'SIBOLETTES' she is always trying new techniques. Flat braid joining has now been mastered and Liztelf has made a most beautiful Blanket which she has kindly donated to our 'SIBOL' project for the Elderly.


I'm really pleased Liztelf you have enjoyed making this Blanket using the method, it certainly is a stunning Blanket. What a difference this method makes.


Secondly, we have a beautiful Granny Square Blanket. The centre is made in variegated yarn and I just love the plain border around the edge. Butterflies from my SIBOL Stash finish the Blanket off along with some Ribbon I also had donated to our project.

A lot of time has gone in to the making of these Blankets, thank you so much for making them I am very grateful to you.
