'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.

Shawls and Sunshine Blankets arrive from Norway today!


Good afternoon,

A parcel arrived all the way from Norway today.
How kind of Isrose (Ravelry Norway) to send such
beautiful donations for SIBOL.

Your work is always such a pleasure to receive. I love the colours and patterns used in these Shawls and the Sunshine Blankets are a perfect size for Laps too!


Thank you Hilde Norway.


Isrose  tells me,

"The blue blanket is named ‘Lapis Lazuli’ and the purple/stripy one is named ‘Thulite’. (Both are named after crystals, and Thulite is the national stone of Norway)."

Thank you Hilde Norway.


Thank you Hilde Norway.


Thank you Hilde Norway.



                                               I love them thank you so much!

Saturday's donations.

Good afternoon,

I've had some beautiful Sunshine Blankets arrive this week and I hope you enjoy looking at them.

The first one is from 'Annetjehh' over in the Netherlands. How kind of you to make and donate the Blanket called 'To Father's Cabin'.

"The song of Amorphis kept popping up in my head while working on it and the blanket reminds me of a cabin of a boat so I think it is suitable for a gent." Annetjehh tells me in her email.

I'm sure you will agree it's going to be a very warm Blanket which I know is very soft and a gent in one of our Care Homes is going to find it very useful indeed.

Thank you so much for sending all this way Annejehh it's very kind of you.

Thank you Anne - Netherlands   -   To Fathers Cabin.


Thank you Anne - Netherlands   -   To Fathers Cabin.

Thank you Philippa.
