'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.

'Sweet Memories and Autumn Glory'.

Good Morning,

Thanks for visiting 'SIBOL' today!

I would like to thank 'tangled_web' for the beautiful Blankets received today.  A lot of thought has gone into both blankets but especially the first one. If you look closely you will see that each Square has a 'sweet theme' how exciting!

It's called 'Sweet Memories'. 'tangled_web' has enclosed a card for the person who receives this blanket and she writes what has inspired her to make this blanket.

'There's a little sweet shop stall in the Indoor Market where I live in Wales. My daughter and I are good friends with the lady who owns it and we recently made her a 'sweetie' blanket I thought I would make another for the wonderful 'SIBOL' project. I hope you like it!"

The 'loose' sweets are from 
top left hand corner:-

Gobstoppers, Pear drops, Strawberry Bootlace, Toffee Blocks (with hammer), Barley Sugars,
Lollipops, Licorice Allsorts, Everton Mints, Peppermint Creams, Parma Violets, Gingerbread Man and Licorice Sticks.

This blanket is amazing and I absolutely love it.
Well done!


This blanket of course is beautiful too! We certainly are churning out some wonderful blankets for the Elderly. This one is called 'Autumn Glory'. I have done my best with photos but I can assure you when you see these blankets in the flesh so to speak the colours just pop out at you. This is such a warm and cosy blanket too. A lovely size and perfect in every way.

If you want to pop over to her Blog please do! Here's the link.

The note from 'tangled_web' tells us once again what inspired her to make this blanket.

"My favourite time of year is the Autumn! I adore all the colours - the gorgeous shades of green and all the colours the leaves become. So I hope you like this 'seasonally inspired' blanket and that it keeps you warm when the days are chilly."


I have made a Slide Show for you now thanks so much 'tangled_web!'

  1. Thank you Sue-I'm really pleased with how they turned out :-)

  2. Oh Liz, they are wonderful! What a super gift to make x

  3. I admire anyone who can finish a blanket in these hot temperatures. They are both lovely blankets. My next blanket will have a theme and i'm looking forward to starting it just as soon as the weather cools down.

    1. Thankyou! The Autumn Glory one was finished in April (I wanted to wait until the Sweetie one was finished before posting them) but it certainly was challenging crocheting the border in this heat!

  4. Liz you've done such beautiful work - already loved the sweetie blanket but your autumn glory blanket is gorgeous too. Brilliant work!

    1. *hugs* Thanks babe-they turned out really pretty :-) x
