'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 today!

Good Morning and welcome!

I am very pleased to be telling you that this morning I delivered 24 Sunshine Blankets  to the Wythall Residential Home local to where I live.  I also gave them a few  Knitted and Crocheted Shawls which had been donated to our project.


Over the past few days I  have been getting the Blankets and Shawls ready for my delivery. It's always such fun decorating them with Butterflies and Ribbons. It still surprises me how quickly they arrive at my Home and I'm very grateful to everyone that spends time making them. They really are works of art and today the Home really appreciated them. Karen and the Staff admired your work and really was extremely grateful for these wonderful donations.  One of the Residents agreed to having her photograph taken too which was really really lovely.




They have asked for some copies of these photos so that they can put them on their notice board which I thought was a super idea.

The Staff told me that the Shawls especially would be very useful and if anyone would like to help me make some more please do.  The Shawl shown on the above photo is the 'Half Granny Square Shawl' and if you would like to try it please follow the  LINK.  If you can make a Granny Square you can make a Large Half Granny Shawl  it's so simple and very addictive too.

I think the Shawl shown really suits this Resident and I do hope she finds it useful. We always attach Butterflies it's rather like our 'SIBOL' trade mark.

So in closing may I thank you all on behalf of Wythall Residential Home the donations today were very well received. They were extremely grateful and couldn't get over how beautiful your work was!

If there is anything you would like to ask me please feel free to mail me.

Thank  you!
