First of all I do hope you will visit the last post. I only wrote earlier today when Renee's Squares arrived. I wouldn't want you to miss them.
When I first started this project back in January 2010, I asked my on-line friends if they wanted to help me make Blankets for the Elderly. To this day, it still amazes me how everyone has helped me. I am truly grateful for every Square received into my home, whether it be one or more! We are all miles apart, but SIBOL has brought us all together and we have a common interest 'making 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly. The Squares I receive are coming in from Ladies from all walks of life and it's a pleasure to meet you all.
On July 1st I received a fairly large package. Inside were 60 Squares for SIBOL. Dear Sally from the UK had made all of them for my project. I was absolutely amazed at the amount she had made and indeed the colours and the patterns.
I set all the Squares on my outside step to take photos because I honestly didn't know where to put them all. It turned out to be a great place for them.
Sally had made such wonderful Squares, all so different.
Well a couple of weeks ago, I decided to start on them. But how should I go about it. There were such wonderful Squares, all fantastic patterns and indeed colours!
I decided to put all the bright colours together first, and then a pile of the 'soothing' colours I called them.
This SIBOL No. 76 was the first of Sally's Squares I put together. I showed my Mother and she thought this one has a 'Caribean feel' to it. Any names Ladies? Do you like it?
Then this one
SIBOL No. 77
Any names for this one Ladies?
So that was 50 of Sally's Squares used up. It was time to sort the others out. But this time I needed some help from my SIBOLETTES!
Let's raid the 'SIBOL STASH BOX'.
and this is what I came up with.
I do hope you like it.
So this is SIBOL No. 74.
Now the Numbers are a bit muddled my end, but you don't have to worry about that. It's just the order gone a bit funny when loading.
Now if you click on the photo you'll go through to Flickr and then you can find your Square!
Do you like the Blankets?
Do you think Sally has made a superb job of her Squares?
Sally I am truly, truly grateful to you. You are such a sweet Lady to sit and make all these Squares for SIBOL. I can't thank you enough and be assured that your Blankets will go to a local Nursing Home where three Elderly people will sit and admire your beautiful Squares!. What a joy to receive one of these Blankets.
It must have took you simply ages to make the Squares, not to mention finding the right colour to go with each Square.
You certainly have a fantastic talent, well done to you!
Let's have a look now at the Blankets again!
Thank you so much Sally and also the other SIBOLETTES that have their Squares in this third Blanket.
I love them all.
I thought it was may be too soon to write a seperate post so I'm carrying on here.
Today I received Squares from Steph (UK).
Of course I have been out amongst my plants taking photographs.
The Squares that came in this morning are once again lovely. I'd like you to see them.
How lovely, thank you very much for sending them to me Steph.
