'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.

Good afternoon,

Today I would like to thank Susan for a very pretty Granny Square Blanket received today. It's absolutely stunning! Larger than what we normally receive but that doesn't matter at all. Sometimes the Homes find the larger ones very useful indeed. This one will fit perfectly on a single bed and it really will brighten up someone's room. Susan tells me it is made out of scraps of yarn that she had at home buying just a little yarn to finish it off.  I think this is a really good idea and I am very grateful to you indeed. It's so pretty!

When I opened the parcel the Blanket was already tied up in Ribbon and Susan had made one of our Butterflies too which was very thoughtful indeed. Thank you so much for donating this piece of work to our 'SIBOL' project it really was very nice of you.


Thank you Susan

Susan noticed the poem on the right hand side of the Blog about Scraps of Yarn have you had a read?

If anyone has any enquiries about our project. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

I'm Sue and can be reached on

Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope Susan's Blanket has given you some ideas!

'Summer Sunshine' and 'Spring Greens'

Good afternoon,

'BigBlue' over on RAVELRY has been very busy assembling Blankets for the 'SIBOL' project. I am so excited to be showing you some new ones that she has put together with the help from our friends.

The first one is called 'Spring Greens' it's so pretty!

Spring Greens

The next one 'Summer Sunshine' that's what we are having here right now it's outside.

BigBlue thank you for Summer Sunshine.

Once again these are beautiful Sunshine Blankets and they will be delivered to a Home near to 'BigBlue'. This is a great idea because she has put them together in the name of 'SIBOL' but suggested giving them out by her to save postage. This is also a way of getting our work further afield. Thank you BigBlue and to everyone else also who has helped her.

If you would like more information about our project please follow this LINK.
Or of course you are most welcome to contact me on

Thank you for popping into our Blog today!

A Sunshine Blanket, Shawls and Butterflies to show you today!

Good afternoon and welcome!

I would like to thank Anne today for two beautiful Shawls received  and some very pretty Butterflies.
As you know we decorate our Sunshine Blankets and Shawls  with Butterflies and we get through quite a lot so these will certainly be very useful. It's so very kind of you thank you Anne.



I had another parcel this morning and inside was a Crocheted Blanket from a Lady called Louise who is 93 in August. What an amazing age and how fantastic that she can still see to Crochet! This Blanket will be so useful in one of our Homes. It's a great size and very warm indeed. So thank you Louise.


Prettily decorated it will be a wonderful Gift for someone. A beautiful pattern too.


Thank you both!

'Still waters' from Singapore.

Good evening to you all!

Thank you for visiting the 'SIBOL' Blog today.

A Big thank you to PinkLemons today for sending a Sunshine Blanket all the way from Singapore.
How kind of her!  PinkLemons has called her Blanket 'Still Waters' and I must say I think this is a perfect name for such a relaxing Blanket.  I love the colours of the Squares and I think the joining colour really makes the Squares stand out. It's a great size too and I know it will give a lot of comfort to an Elderly person.

PinkLemons I would also like to thank you for the very kind card you attached to the Blanket I'm sure the person who receives it will appreciate that very much.  What a thoughtful thing to do.

I love your Sunshine Blanket thank you PinkLemons for your kindness.


'Still Waters' made and donated by PinkLemons (Singapore). Thank you!

Good afternoon,

Thank you for visiting the 'SIBOL' Blog today.   I am very pleased to be showing you what was inside Gill's parcel today. Some beautiful Chunky Blankets which will be fantastic for male Residents and a gorgeous Shawl too. It must be the week for anything chunky!

Thank you so very much Gill once again you have sent in some really useful donations for our 'SIBOL' project.

Thank you Gill for the Shawl

Thank you Gill

Thank you Gill

Thank you Gill

Our 'SIBOL' Project has certainly used some of your yarn up!

Thank you very much!

I would also like to tell you that I have recently sent off 18 Sunshine Blankets to a Home in Hemel Hempstead called 'High View Lodge'.  One of our SIBOLETTE's asked me to arrange it for her.
They are the last 18 Sunshine Blankets on our Blog posts.
I'm really sorry I forgot to take any photos this time I have things going on at home and I completely forgot to take any before parcelling them up.

18 Sunshine Blankets up to the 21st May.
