Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments about our 'Going For Gold' Blanket. I'll be up-dating with any news on it.
As you can see from the header photo I am in the process now of getting our Blankets ready for deliveries. My first batch will be once again going to Dorset County Council, Tracy is very happy to receive some for the Elderly out in the Community. She was extremely pleased with the Blankets we sent down before and I will be using a courier to deliver them once again. I have been sorting out some darker ones for the Men because she found them very useful the last time. These Blankets go out to people in the rural areas of Dorset and I know our Blankets were very well received. It may be a few weeks before I can get them all sent out, but I will be keeping you informed.
The other Blanket I want to show you is called 'Afternoon Tea'. I would like to thank everyone for the Squares that were donated for this Blanket. I have showed you this Blanket before but it has left me now and should be arriving Wednesday at Barley Close Care Home in Axminster. It is a gift for a Lady with severe disabilities. Jennifer over on RAVELRY looks after the Lady and she tells me that the gift will make her day. Some time ago Tinka sent me some Squares for our SIBOL Stash and I have used these to make a small bag. I tied some purple ribbon through the holes and made a short handle. Inside I enclosed a couple of small gifts a bar of soap and some smellies for the bath. I do hope she likes it. She should do purple is her favourite colour. I do like to tell you where our Blankets are going.
I would like to thank Ladies over on RAVELRY for offering to 'take a bag' of Squares. After I announced that I wanted to put a stop on Squares until next January I have had offers of help to make Blankets up. This is quite a fun thing to do within our Group and it is indeed a 'Challenge' in itself! It gives our 'SIBOLETTES' the chance to personally have the experience of making a Blanket up. As I have said many times before I have always felt so priviledged to be able to work with your Squares.
So thanks everyone! Enjoy your Squares!
I think that's all for now. I'm very late going to bed it's early 2.00am! So goodnight, sleep tight!

My 'SIBOL' post continues because I have just had a Blanket arrive from Liztelf here in the UK. Liztelf has just sent in a beautiful 'Giant Granny!'. The combination of colours have worked so well in this Blanket and I think it is really very eye-catching! As I was saying to Liztelf there is something about just hooking away on a large Granny Square I think it is terribly relaxing! It doesn't need that much concentration and can be done while watching TV!
Liztelf has sent in some Butterflies which are just so...pretty!
Have a go! Here's the link!
Let's take a look now at the beautiful Giant Granny!
Another gorgeous donated Blanket thank you very much Liztelf!
Thank you for visiting today! x
