'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.

The blankets keep a comin' !

Good afternoon and welcome to 'SIBOL',

I would like to thank 'Divip' over on RAVELRY for a gorgeous Blanket received today!  It's called 'Grampy Lapghan'. It's been made in the Granny Square style and with the combination of colours used it is ideal for a man. We sometimes forget there are Elderly men in the homes but I can assure you there are plenty.

I am very grateful to you 'Divip' for the stash Squares too and also the ribbon.

I will be taking this one out on my next deliveries.  Let's take a look at it now.


Superb thank you!

Now the kids are back at school I would be very grateful if you could pick up your hooks and needles and make a Square for our Festivals Challenge. This special Blanket will be exhibited at the Jersey Textile Showcase next year and afterwards will be sold to raise money for Macmillan Nursing.

Here's the link to the Jersey Textile Showcase web site and here' the link to Macmillan Nursing.

Have a good day and thanks for visiting!
