'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.

I am inviting you to make a Sunshine Blanket for 'SIBOL'.

Good afternoon,

Our beautiful Sunshine Blankets are great gifts for the elderly. Making now well over 1,000 we certainly have made a difference to Care Homes.  Many residents often feel the cold probably because they are on medication or maybe it's just the sitting around and not moving about so much.
Making a Sunshine Blanket  for them is a really lovely idea. A great way for us to keep our hands busy while watching tv and our thoughts on others. What a great way to use those odd scraps of yarn up. The Residents in the Homes are always so thrilled that someone has thought of them and our Blankets really brighten up dreary rooms.

Today I have received two very pretty Sunshine Blankets from pippa's friend Joan.
Made beautifully and both in great sizes these surely are going to be well received in the Homes.



Both made in the basic Granny Square design the Squares really do make stunning Blankets.

I love them. Thank you pippa for bringing them to my home this morning and thanks to Joan too for making them so beautifully.

If you are interested in helping our 'SIBOL' project we have a Group over on RAVELRY. Why not join us? Here's the LINK.

If you'd like more information about our project please pop over to SIBOL CHALLENGES.

Of course you can contact me on sueatpigsty@talktalk.net for any other enquiries you may have.

I hope you can find some odd scraps of yarn and sit down and make a Blanket for us. I am very happy to received Knitted and Crocheted Blankets of any colour ideally in Acrylic yarn.

Thank you so much.
