'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 Thank you from Grove Care Home.

Good Morning,

I would never have imagined that we would still be making 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly. Our 'SIBOL' Project was started in January 2010 and to-date we have now made 548 Blankets.  Our 'Sunshine Blankets' have always been so well received and today I have received a lovely letter from a Home I recently visited.

This isn't a scanned copy just a photo so I hope you can read it okay.

It is from Grove Care Home which is in Solihull.


I would like to say a Big Thank You to Grove Care Home because this letter will mean such a lot to the Ladies who Knit and Crochet for us. Thank You!

Thanks also to everyone who supports the Group.

I will be back in a short while I have had some amazing Blankets come in just now. I need to take photos of them for you.

It's nearly 6.00pm  now and I have been trying to load up Blankets all afternoon.. It is so frustrating when Flickr is slow. Now I'm very pleased to be showing you the latest Blankets that have arrived.

Three from Sally. Now mostly the Squares have been made by Irene and Pat. Sally has assembled these Blankets absolutely beautifully. I love the colour combinations on all three Blankets. The joining and the Borders are superb! A lovely size too and I know will give a lot of comfort. Thank you so much Sally I am very grateful to you.

Here they are.




The fourth Blanket has arrived from Lesley. Another stunner. There is nothing like the Granny Square Blanket and what a good idea to use your un-wanted yarn!

You have made it beautifully Lesley thank you so much. I will take it out to the Homes as soon as possible.
Here it is.


I love the striking border. Perfect.

Well it's been a very busy day at SIBOL HQ.
If there is anything you would like to know about our 'Sunshine Blankets'
please do not hesitate to contact me.
