'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.

Friday's donations.

Good Morning,

I would like to say a big thank you today to Gemma 'Woolly Pumpkin' who has sent me some wonderful donations for our 'SIBOL' project. These blankets are larger than our normal 'Lap' size but would be ideal to use on Single beds in Residents' rooms. The colours are bright and cheerful and  I know that all of them are going to bring lots of smiles. Made absolutely beautifully too thank you so much Gemma.

It was a pleasure to receive your letter too it's always lovely to find out what everyone is making at home. Gemma enjoys making Dog coats for Battersea and is in the process of making a Bridal Shawl and Baby Blanket.  So best of luck with those Gemma.

Let's take a look now at Gemma's work.

1222, 1221, 1220 Thanks Gemma.

1222 Pink Posh thanks Gemma.

1221 Thanks Gemma. Nautical.

1220 Thanks Gemma 'Woolly Pumpkin'.

I love your label Gemma and I've now added one of our 'SIBOL' Butterflies which is rather like our trademark.

It's a joy to receive your work today thank you Gemma.
