'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.

Good afternoon,

Today I would like to thank Susan for a very pretty Granny Square Blanket received today. It's absolutely stunning! Larger than what we normally receive but that doesn't matter at all. Sometimes the Homes find the larger ones very useful indeed. This one will fit perfectly on a single bed and it really will brighten up someone's room. Susan tells me it is made out of scraps of yarn that she had at home buying just a little yarn to finish it off.  I think this is a really good idea and I am very grateful to you indeed. It's so pretty!

When I opened the parcel the Blanket was already tied up in Ribbon and Susan had made one of our Butterflies too which was very thoughtful indeed. Thank you so much for donating this piece of work to our 'SIBOL' project it really was very nice of you.


Thank you Susan

Susan noticed the poem on the right hand side of the Blog about Scraps of Yarn have you had a read?

If anyone has any enquiries about our project. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

I'm Sue and can be reached on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net

Thank you to Carolyn today for Knitted Squares.
I have enough Squares to make nearly 7 Sunshine Blankets so  a Big Thank you.
They are all made so well and in such fantastic colours they certainly are going to
cheer a few Residents up.

Thanks Carolyn
