I do hope you go back a post and view the Squares that I have received. They are so lovely.
I was going to save this 'SIBOL' Friendship Blanket until the 28th February, the day that SIBOL went 'live' you might say, 'one year ago'. But you know I can't wait. I just can't wait any longer.......I have to show you all.
Do you remember in those early days when 'SIBOL' was created? Thanks to Ladies all over the World the name 'SIBOL' was thought of. It was a joint effort by everyone around the World. 'Sunshine' because we wanted to send some 'Sunshine' into the lives of the Elderly. 'International' because this was a joint effort. 'Blankets' that's of course what they are! The last Letter 'L' I wonder what that stands for 'Love'.
Yes 'Sunshine International Blankets of Love'. That's what we are managing to do between us all. Such beautiful Squares have come in to me and I am truly grateful.
But what's this 'SIBOL' Friendship Blanket? You maybe asking! Well do you remember in those early days, when everyone was saying, 'Sue, we think you ought to have your very own Blanket, one for you to keep for yourself''. Well in those early days I collected a Square from quite a few Ladies to put into my very own Blanket. Today I would like to show you the finished Blanket.
Now I have to say...... not everyone is in this Blanket. It would be massive if I did put everyone. So please don't be offended if you don't see your Square. This is not intentional by any means. I have had the majority of Squares sitting in a box just waiting until I could get to them. After I had finished the Black and Whites it was my aim to devote some time to 'me'. I had been doing a little on the Blanket throughout the year, so I was really pleased to be able to say I had finished it.
I am so pleased with the outcome and I will absolutely treasure it always. I do hope everyone will pop over to Flickr and 'add note', to your very own Square. It is rather larger than usual because dear Pilar sent me the centre Square, and I've had to work around that one. It is lovely but so are all the others too!
Without further a do......Please take a look at my very own 'SIBOL' Friendship Blanket and SIBOLETTES/My Friends 'Thank You' very, very much! I do hope you like it.
Why not my own Slide Show? Enjoy!
