'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.

Hello Everyone!
Thank you all so much for your comments on my last visit to St. Bernards. I am so pleased you enjoyed reading the post.  Zoe at Longmore Nursing Home has left a comment underneath my write up so I hope you will go back and have a read.

On Thursday I decided to deliver the last of our SIBOL Blankets to the Prince of Wales Nursing Home in Shirley.  So Thursday morning I got the Blankets ready.





I love putting the Blankets out ready for you to see they look so pretty



                                                   and the cards with your names printed on.......





                                                             Gorgeous coloured Squares




                                                                   Each one so different




                                                                 Once again a pretty pile..........






                                                   Don't you just love to see them like this?



                                                All piled up ready to go with Butterflies hanging!




                               I set off on a very wet day to The Prince of Wales Nursing Home in Shirley



where I met the Nursing Sister who very kindly had a word with me about our Crocheting and Knitting Group. I explained once again why I wanted to do the Project in Memory of my Grandmother, and how all of you kind Ladies have helped me by sending me 6" Squares.  I told her how all these Squares travel from all over the World and how very kind you have all been.

It was time to hand the last lot of  the Blankets out.



I spoke about our Challenges and showed the Blankets and was assured that the Blankets would go to Residents who needed them.  I'm sending my thanks to The Prince of Wales Nursing Home for accepting our Blankets and for the 'cup of tea!'.  Also for allowing me these photographs.

This was the last lot of Blankets to be given out. I've had a busy few weeks, but I'm so pleased
I finished my visits last week because today we have had bad snow. 

I want to thank each and everyone of you who have made and contributed Squares for my project. I initially wanted to make 6 I am just finishing of my 45th. 

Without you I wouldn't be able to make the Blankets. You have all been so kind and generous and I really hope all of our Blankets will be loved as much as we love our 'Crocheting' and it's so nice for me to be able to do the final part of the 'journey' so to speak, actually donating these Blankets to Nursing Homes for the Elderly.

Thank You 'The Prince of Wales Nursing Home'
Thank You Everyone!

Have a good evening everyone!
