What's new?


Good afternoon,

Gill has been very busy indeed making these wonderful Sunshine Blankets for Homes near to where she lives. As you can see each one is so unique. Just look at the work that has gone in to them.
The Blankets are going to Sherwood House and the others to Sutton Manor Residential Home.
I think the Residents are going to be over the moon with their gifts Gill.
Thank you so very much for making them and also taking the time to take them in yourself.
Gill tells me that they have three other sites and 130 Residents so that should keep her busy for quite a while! It's so good that we can reach other areas.


Thanks Gill - Sutton Manor Residential Home. 1  2  3

Round and Round!

Good evening,

Joanna has very kindly made and sent to me a very pretty Sunshine Blanket made in the traditional Granny Square way. The colours are so nice and a great size too. Joanna always has a Granny Blanket on the go and I am honoured that you wanted to donate it to SIBOL.

Thank you Joanna.


Isn't it lovely?
Thank you Joanna.

It's nice to look back......

Good Morning,

Watching the Olympics on TV has reminded me of the stunning Blankets the 'SIBOL' Group made as a Challenge back in 2012. We had Squares arrive from all over the world and money raised went to Alzheimers UK.

This Blanket in particular 'Going for Gold' raised £1,000.00.

'Going For Gold!' Olympic Challenge. Thanks to everyone that sent me Squares! Truly amazing! Please 'add note' if you see your Square(s)!

Just found this photo.

100 Squares also flew in from akarapacha in the States.
This Blanket raised £250.00 for Alzheimers.


100 Squares flew in from 'akarapacha' (USA) Thank you so much. All 6


The work that went in to these Squares was unbelievable.
I thought you'd like to see them again.
