'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 Blanket 652

Good Afternoon to you!

With many thanks to 'creativegranny' we have another beautiful 'Sunshine Blanket' for the Elderly. A combination of Knitted and Crocheted Squares make this Blanket really interesting. I love the colour combinations!



I am most happy to receive donated Blankets from you, however I'm sorry I can't accept Squares. It's become far too expensive to send out to our 'SIBOLETTE'S' for assembling.

Any queries please contact me on

Thank you!

A new Shawl to show you!

Good Afternoon everyone!

I have some pretty Sunshine Blankets to show you today. Sally has very kindly assembled Squares from Irene our 90 year old SIBOLETTE. I'm sure you will agree they have come out really well. 




Not only has she assembled 'Sunshine Blankets' she also made up a Shawl for us.
The Knitted Squares look a treat.

Let's take a look at it.


Thank you very much Irene and Sally. Gorgeous work!

I Love Granny Squares.

Good Morning,

Two gorgeous Blankets arrived a couple of days ago from Denise and with everything going on here I haven't had chance to post photos of them. I do apologise for the quality of the photos as you know I am in a 'mess' here. If at all possible could you send Blankets after the 1st of April that would help me tremendously.

Denise has made two gorgeous Blankets for the Elderly and I would like to thank her very much indeed. Made in the traditional Granny Square style I know they are going to be loved. Let's take a look at them.



What fantastic colours in this Blanket Denise! So bright and cheerful. You all know Granny Squares are my favourite.

Then we have this one.....

647 With thanks to Denise a gorgeous Blanket.


Two beautiful colours co-ordinating together.

Superb work Denise. You are terribly kind thank you so much.

Thank you for visiting today!

An update for you!

Good Morning to you all!

 Just popping in to tell you that I will be accepting your beautiful Sunshine Blankets any time after the 1st April. I'm so sorry this seems like a long time but I have been held up with things at home. Our 'dream Kitchen' has turned in to a bit of an on-going nightmare! 

Thank you

Una has left a comment for us.

Did you know postal charges are going up on March 31st? People might save a bit of money if they post on March 30th and they probably won’t reach you until after April 1st.

I think this is a really good idea Una thank you for sharing this information with us.
