The Ladies on RAVELRY are having fun making Butterflies for a visit to a Craft Group I am doing next year and also for our 'SIBOL Butterfly Stash!'. It's always great to have any kind of embellishment and Ann has already been very kind in sending me quite a selection Stars, Flowers, Hearts and Butterflies. They get used up so quickly though so I am always very grateful for more. These are attached to our SIBOL Blankets!
I'm sitting here thinking how far afield can our Butterflies fly from? So where ever you are in the world why not pick up your Hook and make a Butterfly! Beverley (baw1812) has very kindly made some tags for the Butterflies and if you RAV mail her I'm almost positive she would send the file over to you on normal email as an attachment! You can then put your name and country on the tag and attach it to your Butterfly!
Her RAV name is baw1812
If you want to 'Knit a Butterfly' then please do!
I'm going to give you a link to Nettie's Blog over in Australia. She very kindly put up a video tutorial some time ago for a Crocheted Butterfly. They are so easy to make and they are so beautiful! It would be really interesting to see how far our SIBOL Butterflies can fly!
Here are some that have been made already by the Ladies on RAVELRY.
These ones have been made by Nik. Nik is a new Member to our SIBOL RAV Group, I'm pleased you've joined us and your Butterflies are super!
Beverley has been busy! Aren't they gorgeous!
Carol has made these ones and she gave me the link for the yarn which is really nice. 'Penny's Cotton Club' I'm going to treat myself one of these days!
Of course you don't have to follow Netties tutorial. Please feel free to make your own Butterfly. You may have a different pattern you would like to share. Please email me on email@example.com

I haven't any Squares today nor Blankets and I have been busy at the printer's today getting our SIBOL Labels ready for the Blankets. There are about 40 upstairs waiting to be delivered in a few months time.
Here they are!
We work terribly hard all year round making Squares and indeed Blankets for the Elderly in Nursing Homes and it's nice this week that we can have a bit of fun making Butterflies! I am really enjoying the SIBOL RAV Group why not join us!
I'm going to leave you with some pretty paperweights now I have been making! This one is from the Emmerdale Blanket we sent off to Emmerdale Production Studios.
This one is from 'Flower Garden' - 'creativegranny'.
'On Target!' - 'joyce 28'.
Thank you to everyone visiting 'SIBOL' today I hope you have enjoyed what you have seen!
