'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 fly in from Switzerland!

Good Afternoon,


I would like to thank Bettina from Switzerland for these beautiful
'SIBOL' Butterflies.

Made in beautiful colours these really are going to brighten our
'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly.

The Residents in the Homes love our Butterflies and they really
are talking points for them.

So a Big Thank You to Bettina today!


Now I have another Shawl to show you.
This one was made by me!
I don't have much time to make anything myself for 'SIBOL' as
taking photos of your work and writing the Blog takes up a lot of my time.
But these Shawls are reasonably quick to make so I hope I can make a few more.
Plus the fact I've had my Daughter at home with her broken ankle.

I do hope tomorrow that cast comes off!!

Here's my attempt.


I do hope you will scroll down on previous posts there is always plenty to 
see here on the 'SIBOL' Blog.

If there is anything you would like to ask me please feel free to mail

I'm Sue 

Thanks for popping in today!

  1. It's been my pleasure. Regards, Bettina

  2. That's a lovely shawl you've made - well done. I wish I had more time too for crocheting!
