'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 new Sunshine Blanket from Scotland.

Good Evening and Welcome!

I have another Ta - Dah for you today! This Blanket arrived at SIBOL HQ this morning and I just can't wait to show you all. It has been made and donated by 'jenn1feranne' over on RAVELRY. She saw the pattern on RAVELRY and just couldn't wait to put that hook to work and start making it! It is made in such striking colours and definitely is very unusual.  'jenn1feranne' worked the Blanket up so quickly and I am very grateful to her for donating it to our Group for the Elderly.  I will be very pleased to take it along to Grove Care Home fairly soon. It is absolutely beautiful, such wonderful colours and I can imagine there was a lot of counting involved in this Blanket 'jenn1feranne'.

We are at present trying to think of a good name for it. Here it is.....


Perfect in every way, thank you so much. I've made a Slide Show for you, sit back and enjoy!

Created with flickr slideshow.

Have a good evening and thanks for visiting today!
