'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.

'Sunshine Blankets arriving from Spain!'

Good Afternoon,

Welcome to 'SIBOL!'.

I have had 5 'Sunshine Blankets' arrive this morning from Sonieta and her Mummy in Spain and  I would like to thank you both very much indeed.

Sonieta and her Mummy just love making Granny Squares and how kind of you both to think of our 'SIBOL' project. These 'Sunshine Blankets' are perfect in every way for Residents in Care Homes and as the weather gets colder towards the end of the year I'm sure they will find them very useful indeed. All made in wonderful colours they certainly are a great way to use that un-wanted yarn up.

Absolutely gorgeous let's take a look at them now.


I love decorating with Ribbon and Butterflies. What a great gift for the Residents in Care Homes!






Thank you both!
