'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.

Butterflies, Shawls and 'Sunshine Blankets' arriving today!

Good Morning and Welcome!

I'm very pleased to be showing you pretty Butterflies, Shawls and Blankets today so thank you for popping in!

First of all we have had some Butterflies fly in all the way from France.

'Roamin in the Gloamin' over on the MSE Knitting forum thank you very much indeed!
These will certainly be very useful over the next few weeks. Made in wonderful colours we definitely have
a great variety!

Butterflies from France 'Roamin in the Gloamin' thank you! 'Jean'. MSE.


Then we have Butterflies and two Shawls from Jayne here in the UK.

Once again such beautiful Butterflies and I'm really pleased you have enjoyed making two Shawls for the Elderly.  Let's take a look at them now.

Jayne thank you for the Butterflies!




Aren't they pretty! I love them thank you so much Jayne!

I recently had Squares and halves from Irene and Sally has been very busy assembling them for us.
She has put together two wonderful Shawls. I love the pastel colours very much.

Sally thank you for making these Squares & Half ones up. Beautiful Shawl I love it.


So delicate and feminine thank you!

Also Sally assembled a 'Sunshine Blanket' for us. Once again the Squares were from our 90 year old 'SIBOLETTE' Irene.

763 Thank you Sally for assembling Irene's Squares.


Reminds me of the Sea and Sand.

Not only has Sally assembled these Squares for me she has also made a beautiful Patchwork Blanket and a Knitted Shawl. How kind of you thank you so much. 



The border finishes it off beautifully Sally. A complete surprise thanks very much!

A Knitted Shawl for the Elderly too. I love the button on this Shawl,  it finishes it off so well and look at the striking edging! What a wonderful gift for an Elderly person. I'm very grateful to you Sally. Thank you.



Also some Butterflies were enclosed in the parcel. Thanks for making them Sally.

Sally thank you for the Butterflies.

Well what a bumper delivery today once again!
Thank you all for the wonderful Butterflies, Shawls and Blankets.

Here are the Shawls we have made.


We definitely are sending some Sunshine into the Lives of the Elderly!

Thanks for visiting today!

  1. Beautiful blankets :-) I'm sure they will all be loved!

    My work slows down over the Summer-I was wondering whether you needed any squares putting together into blankets? I'd be happy to help! x
