'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.
I NO LONGER ACCEPT KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES. I DO HOWEVER ACCEPT MADE UP BLANKETS FOR THE ELDERLY IN CARE HOMES. I'D BE VERY HAPPY TO RECEIVE YOURS! THANK YOU!

Southbank Centre village fair London 24th & 25th August/Butterflies/Sunshine Blankets.

Good Afternoon,

I am very pleased to be showing you two stunning Blankets received from Anita here in the UK. How kind of you to make and donate them to SIBOL! Both Blankets are absolutely beautiful, really bright and cheerful just what we need for the Elderly in the Care Homes etc.,

If you haven't read about my visit to Victoria Lodge  Care Home please do scroll down and have a catch up. Our 'Sunshine Blankets' were received so well and the Staff and everyone loved them.

Getting back to Anita's Blankets here they are!

I do hope the Granny Squares are inspiring you to pick up your hook!  These two Blankets have been put together so well and I know they are going to be loved. There is a great need for Blankets in the Care Homes. Sometimes the ones they have are very old and tatty and what's  nicer than having a nice new one! They give a great deal of comfort to an Elderly person and certainly bring smiles to their faces! Definitely talking points in the Homes too especially the Challenge Blankets.

Thank you very much indeed Anita for putting these together, I really appreciate them. I shall make you a Slide Show so please scroll down to the end of the post.



I also received some SIBOL Butterflies this morning from 'Lynn' here in the UK. Lynn is a friend of our Fee. They both meet at a local Knit and Knatter Group. Lynn is new to crochet and she has really enjoyed making the Butterflies for us. Of course once she started making them she was addicted to them. I would like to thank Fee too because she actually taught Lynn to crochet.  Here they are.....

Lynn V Thank you for the SIBOL Butterflies!



If you would like to have a go at the Butterflies please follow this Link to Netties Blog in Australia.


Thank you both very much and now a  message from  one of our SIBOLETTE'S 'Maria-Jesus'.

Hello all,

There is a brilliant event going on over the bank holiday weekend at the Southbank Centre, a village fair with cake competition, dog show and…….. some knitting ;) Our group, the London Knaughty Knitters will have a stall, where we will teach people how to knit making squares for a SIBOL blanket. Everyone in the group has been knitting like crazy over the last few weeks and we already have enough squares for two blankets, and we are not at the event yet!!!

If anyone is around London the Bank Holiday weekend, we would love to see you, make a square together, a butterfly, or just have a chat ;)

Also if you would like to pop by with your squares, we would be very happy to add them to our blanket or send them on to Sue.

Where and when: Saturday 24th &  Sunday 25th August Southbank Centre
Our group will be in the Makers Market from 11-4pm, that will be in the Herb Garden at the Riverside Terrace.

Here is the link to the Southbank centre where you can see all the activities going on, it is going to be something else!!


Thanks Maria-Jesus!
