'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.

Delivery Day is here again!

Good Morning to you all,

Over the past few weeks I have been getting the 'Sunshine Blankets' ready for another delivery. I had 27 in total when I took the photo but late last night I managed to finish the Butterfly Blanket too so that was a total of 28.

I'm very pleased to be telling you that I took 28 'Sunshine Blankets' to Alexandra House, Olton this morning.

Here's some photos if you want to have a look at the home please  follow the link. They actually have 36 Residents in their main home but also have Residents in Sheltered accommodation too. It was a pleasure to be able to tell Jamiel - The Residental Care Home Manager  about our work and show her the beautiful Blankets. She loved them and thanks you all.



I would like to thank SnazzyB over on RAVELRY for the donation of yarn this morning, very kind of you to think of us!


Also a big thank you to 
Great Balls of Wool
for the donation of Ribbon and yarn.
Here's the link to her beautiful Blog.


The Ribbon will be  very useful thank you!

I would also like to thank MarilynJG for assembling two beautiful Blankets for me.
Unfortunately, they didn't quite make today's delivery.
I found them in the porch when I got back this morning.

Marilyn has used a beautiful joining method and it really gives both Blankets a delicate feminine feel to them I think. I love the Squares too in the Blankets thanks to everyone who sent in Squares for these Blankets. 



Superb thank you Marilyn for assembling them.

Thanks to everyone for supporting the 'SIBOL' project.
If you would like to ask me anything please contact me.
