'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.

Why not make a Butterfly for our Sunshine Blankets?

Good afternoon,

Butterflies are used to decorate our beautiful Sunshine Blankets and if anyone would like to make any Crocheted or Knitted please feel free. It's always nice to give our Blankets out with a Butterfly attached. They definitely are talking points in the Homes.

If you would like to have a go making Crocheted Butterflies I have a great video tutorial on Netspets Blog in Australia. Here's the LINK.  The Butterflies can be made in any yarn you like and in any colour you like too.  Whatever size you like!

Let's take a look at some of the beauties we have made over the years.

Thank you Val!

I warn you once you start making them they become very addictive but of course a great way to use un-wanted yarn up.

Thanks everyone!
