'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.

Three Grannies to show you!

Good Afternoon and welcome!

I am very pleased to be showing you three lovely 'Sunshine Blankets'. They have been made and donated by June here in the UK. One a Large Granny Square Blanket and two others made out of Squares. Everything is perfect about these Blankets - they are all a nice size, so colourful and I know they are going to be very useful to the Elderly in the Homes I visit.

Let's take a look first at the colourful Granny Square Blanket.

659 June S. Thank you!


Isn't it lovely! So bright and cheerful.

Next we have some Granny Square ones.

658 June S. Thank you!


What a good way to use un-wanted yarn! 

657 June S. Thank you !


Wow! What stunners!

I am very grateful to you June. I know it takes quite a while to make a Blanket. It's time worth spent anyway because three Elderly people are going to receive a great deal of comfort from these.
Thank you very much indeed.

I also had some Squares arrive from Lovingly Made Knitting Group.
Thank you all very much. 

Lovingly Made thank you.

Thank you for popping in today.

  1. Hi Sue, I was looking at the challenges blog and wondering about the hosting of blanket challenges - I haven't seen anything on Ravelry yet so wondering when this will be starting?

  2. We now have a Challenge over on RAVELRY Melanie.
    Thanks for asking.
