'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.

Would you like to make a Crocheted 'Sunshine' Granny Square?

Good evening to you all!




I have a very exciting Challenge for you today.
Would you like to take part?
If so, please read the following.


‘theemuts’ over on RAVELRY has designed a gorgeous Square. It’s called ‘Sunshine Granny Square’ and I thought that this Square would be ideal to celebrate our 1,000th Sunshine Blanket.
I am inviting you all to take part. If anyone is interested could you please leave your name on the  thread over on RAVELRY. Here's the LINK. You must leave your name. 
We are collecting 24 ‘Sunshine Granny Squares’ for this Blanket and 1 'centre Square' with ‘1,000’ in numbers Crocheted on.
So if you would like to make a ‘Sunshine Square’ or a ‘Centre’ Square let us know.

Any remaining Squares will be sent to ‘theemuts’ for her special project over in Belgium.
 She makes Lapghans for *“Zorghuis Oostende a small project where single cancer patients can stay during or after their chemotherapy. This home runs on 2 halftime care takers and volonteers 24/24.
Here’s a LINK

It would be fantastic to reach our 1,000th Sunshine Blanket but at the same time helping ‘Zorghuis Oostende’. So please help us.

If you live in Europe maybe you would like to send your Sunshine Square directly to ‘theemuts’ to save on Postage. She lives in Belgium.
Just let us know thank you.
Here’s a LINK to the pattern. ‘theemuts’ is offering it free to everyone that wants to make it. She will send you a pdf.
REQUIREMENTS.
6” Crocheted Square 
Made in 4mm Hook 
Acrylic yarn. 
Any Bright ‘Sunshine’ colours e.g. Reds, Oranges, Yellows, etc.,

REMEMBER TO JOIN IN PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO RAVELRY. YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR NAME. 
CLOSING DATE END MARCH 2015.

I know 'theemuts' is very excited and I am too. I can't thank you all enough for your support over the years.
Together we are making a difference to the lives of Elderly Residents in Care Homes.

Any other enquiries please feel free to contact me
I'm Sue and you will be able to contact me on

This is an up-dated post now 21/03/2015

I have received a lovely Blanket this morning from Philipa here in the UK.
A beautifully Knitted piece of work measuring 48 x 72" made from 12 rows of 8 - 6" Squares.
The Squares are Knitted so well and it's so colourful.
Although this Blanket is larger than our normal ones it will be ideal for a Single Bed in a Care Home. I am often told that they sometimes need larger Blankets to put on the beds when someone isn't feeling too well.

So thank you Philipa. Let's take a look now at this gorgeous Blanket.





Decorated with Butterflies I know it will be accepted so well. Many thanks to you Philipa for thinking of the 'SIBOL' project.
