'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.

Lilac Day

Good afternoon,

My postie has been very busy today - three beautiful Sunshine Blankets arriving for Residents in Care Homes. 

The first one arrived from juliesgems3 over on RAVELRY.   Here's the LINK to her page.

This Crocheted Blanket is so pretty. I've added a Butterfly too which we do on all of our Blankets.  If you'd like to have a go yourself they are very easy to do. Nettie's Blog in Australia has a great video tutorial. Here's the LINK. We are always in need of Butterflies so please feel free to make some. Decorated with Ribbon and a Butterfly this Blanket is going to be a wonderful Gift. Thank you very much juliesgems3.

1117 -'Granny Square Lap Blanket -  Thanks Julie C.


The centre really stands out and I love the variegated yarn used too.  What a treat thank you!

Next we have two Sunshine Blankets arriving from Linda. Linda has made the Sunshine Blankets in two shades of Lilac and I love the roses and frilly edging. It must be the day for Lilac! Both are great sizes for someone's lap thank you so much.

1119 - 1118 Thanks Linda - I love the colours in these two Sunshine Blankets.

1119 - Cute Roses Linda!
