'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.

St. Bernards Residental Care Home 6.

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for stopping by 'SIBOL' today.

Over the past few weeks I have been getting the Blankets ready to deliver to St. Bernards Residential Care Home near to where I live.  I have to thank you for the most beautiful Squares I have received over the months which have enabled me to make really pretty Blankets

When our 'Sunshine Blankets' were first thought of way back in January 2010 I never thought then that I would be making so many. My first target was 6, We have now made 68.

So over the last few weeks I have been getting the Blankets ready, piling them up, putting their ribbons on and  making the Gift Cards.




Today was the day to deliver our 'Sunshine Blankets'.




                                            To  St. Bernards Residential Care Home in Solihull




Where I met Gwen and one of the other assistants . My husband is off work this week and so I asked him to come along. We met Staff and some of the lovely Residents.  I must tell you how everyone loved our Blankets. They thought all the Blankets were so beautifully made. They loved the Squares and I showed them in particular the themed Blankets.




 The Ladies took such an interest in the Blankets especially the 'Young At Heart' Blanket, with beautiful Squares depicting things from our childhood, they also loved the Flower Blankets too.





Of course I asked if we could take a few photographs! My Husband was Photographer for the afternoon! Gwen was only too happy to oblige.









I would like to thank Gwen and her Staff for hospitality shown to myself and Colin. We were offered tea and biscuits and it was lovely to have a chat with the Residents.  It's so nice to know that our 'Sunshine Blankets' have gone to a home where they will be appreciated and the Residents will enjoy having them beside them.
I also told Gwen and her Residents that I have made these Blankets in Memory of my own Grandmother who lived to the age of 103.

Thank you so much 'SIBOLETTES' and thank you also to St. Bernards Residential Care Home.
Thank you for visiting 'SIBOL' today!
