'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.

A busy day at 'SIBOL'.

Good evening to you all!

I do hope you will scroll down and see two beautiful Granny Blankets that arrived this morning from 'StaceyStoke' they are so nice.

I would now like to show you two 'Sunshine Blankets' that have been made beautifully by 'Dulcatis' over on RAVELRY. Here's the LINK to her page. The first one is called 'Banana Sundae' just take a look at it.

1023 - 'Dulcatis' - 'Banana Sundae' thank you


'Dulcatis' has a knack of choosing names for her Blankets. So appropriate I think. The next one is called 'Forest Walk'. I love both of these Blankets.

1024 - 'Dulcatis' -'Forest Walk'. Thank you.


'Dulcatis' very kindly attaches Butterflies to her Blankets as we all do and she also ties them up with Ribbon and presents them in white carrier bags. I think this is a really good idea and I'm so pleased
that you enjoy the 'SIBOL' experience 'Dulcatis'.  The Blankets are then given to her Manager at work who takes them into the 'Oaklands Residential' Home in Bridgend, Wales where her Father lives. I think this is so nice of both of you to do this for the Elderly. It is certainly  a way we can
get our Blankets further afield.

I have to say all of the Blankets you have made are superb!  Here's the other two that 'Dulcatis' has made on behalf of 'SIBOL'.

'Mother's Fancy'.

1010 'Mothers Fancy' - Dulcatis 'RAV'.  Thank you.


'Midnight Flowers'.

980 'Midnight Flowers' -  Dulcatis thank you.


I do hope 'Dulcatis' has inspired you to make a Blanket for 'SIBOL'.

This afternoon I had notification to say a parcel was ready to be picked up at the local convenience store. So off I went. Thank you Joyce very much for everything that was enclosed. Three gorgeous Blankets which are so...colourful and a pretty Cream Shawl.

Let's take a look at them now.


A great Shawl.......

'Tropical Delight'.



'Sophie's Garden'


'Sophie's Universe'.


I'll give you a LINK to joyce28 over on RAVELRY if you click on her projects you will be able to obtain more details.

I'm over the moon with all of the Blankets received today. Do scroll down to see other work that has arrived. Once again I am very grateful to everyone who visits our 'SIBOL' Blog and who donates Sunshine Blankets for this very worthy project.

Each and everyone of our Blankets are delivered to the Elderly in Care Homes and they really are appreciated.

Thanks again to joyce28, Dulcatis and Stacey 'scroll down'.
