'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.

Delivery Day to St. George's Home for the Elderly, Shirley.


Good Morning and welcome!

I am  very pleased to be telling you that over the last few days I have been getting our Sunshine Blankets ready for delivery.

20 Sunshine Blankets to be delivered to St. Georges Home for the Elderly 20/02/2015


Once again it is surprising how quickly our Blankets add up, we have 20 beauties here and they are ready to find them new home at St. George's Home for the Elderly in Shirley.


St. Georges Home for the Elderly.

I went along with pippa and her Husband this morning  and we were met by Magda who is in charge of the Home. I  first of all met Magda when I visted back in 2010 and it was nice to see her again.

Magda accepted our Blankets so well she absolutely loved them and wants me to thank everyone 
for making them for her Home.

After we handed over the Blankets we went to see pippa's Mother who is a Resident of the Home. It was nice to see her  again and I was pleased to see  she had settled in  so well. 
We were invited to have tea and biscuits while talking to pippa's Mother and it was nice to see our Blankets from years ago still in  use around the room.

I would like to thank Magda and the Staff for making us so welcome and I have promised to go back and take some Shawls to her.

I'm always so proud of everyone that has made and donated Sunshine Blankets to our 'SIBOL' project. Thank you.


I would like to thank  pippa today for her Sunshine Granny Square for our special 1,000th Sunshine Blanket. I love it.

pippa thank you. 1,000th Square.

Before I go I would like to draw your attention to a video I came across.
'I wish!'
