'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.

Wow!

Good Afternoon and thanks for popping into 'SIBOL' today!

Golly the Blankets and Shawls are certainly rolling in this week. It's always a pleasure to receive them. Often your work takes me by surprise and today I have received two very large parcels from Kersey and Linda and the North East Loving Hands Group. It's always like Christmas in my house when I open the parcels as you can imagine.

Let's start with the parcel from Kersey from Carmarthenshire.

Knitting in our Group is very popular and Kersey has Knitted us a  Shawl for the Elderly. A lovely girlie Shawl with a very pretty edging. The colours are just so perfect! Take a look now. There's a lot of sun about today so I'm sorry about the shadows. I do want to get these loaded up before the family come in for the weekend.

Kersey has also Knitted two 'Sunshine Blankets' You are clever these are simply beautiful.

As you can see this is a large Blanket which is folded over for photo purposes. I love the colours and I can tell you it will be so warm for someone.

Then we have a smaller one.

706 Kersey Thank you x

We have to think of names now for these wonderful Blankets.
With the help of the Ladies on RAVELRY it shouldn't be too difficult.
Here's the Link. 

Kersey I really appreciate your help thank you so much. You have made them so well.
I just love them. I shall take them to the Homes very soon.

Now I would like to thank Linda and the North East Group of Loving Hands. It's always so nice to involve other Knitting Groups and once again today I am really surprised at the amount of Blankets and Shawls included in the parcel.

Everything in the parcel has been made beautifully.
I would like to thank every one who has supported the SIBOL project.
I am going to do my best to tell you who's sent what but the bits of paper went flying everywhere. Let's see how we go.

Linda has made some Shawls for the Elderly.
What beautiful patterns and lovely colours!
