Tandy Court Care Home Delivery Day.

Good evening,

I'm very pleased to be telling you that yesterday I delivered 32 Sunshine Blankets to Tandy Court Care Home, Birmingham.  I think this will be the last of my deliveries for this year now. I would like to thank everyone who has donated Blankets and Shawls this year. Our work is always very much appreciated and the Staff of the Home would like me to thank you.

Each one of these Blankets is so....individual and I know that whoever receives them is certainly going to receive a great deal of comfort from them.

A big thank you to you all!

Deliveries begin.....



Good afternoon,

I'm very pleased to be telling you that this afternoon I am donating
29 Crocheted Shawls to Lady Katherine Leveson Care Home, Temple Balsall  area.

These Shawls have been made beautifully for Residents and I'm sure
they will be very useful to them - wonderful  colours and great designs.

Thanks to everyone!

I would like to thank Gill today for making and donating 14 Shawls which she posted on to Ashmere Care Home, Nottingham. Michelle telephoned me to thank us saying how grateful she was for them.
Our donations certainly do make a difference in Care Homes up and down the country.

I'm sure you would like to see these beautiful designs. All made in wonderful colours which will certainly bring lots of smiles.

Thank you Gill.

Just in time!

Good afternoon,

I would like to thank June very much indeed for the beautiful Granny Blankets received today.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to make these beauties and I can assure you I will be taking these out very soon indeed to a local Care Home.

May I remind you I am not accepting anymore Sunshine Blankets or Shawls after this Wednesday so please hurry up and get them to me.

I cannot guarantee on delivering your work this year if they arrive after this date.

I shall start collecting again after March 1st 2017.
A big thank you to the Lady who sent these Blankets today.

Such a miserable day here in the UK today. I think we need some pretty Blankets to cheer us up.

First I would like to show you some made by Angela.

Thank you Angela



1344 Thank you Angela


1343 Thank you Angela

Gorgeous Granny Blankets, a perfect size for Laps and beautiful colour combinations.
You're very kind Angela thank you so much.

This morning I received a Sunshine Blanket from Una.
This one is  called 'The Pink Shocker'.
I love the centre in this one Una and it's so bright and cheerful I know an older person is really going to admire this one.

Thank you so much for the Blanket and the useful Ribbons. Very much appreciated.


1345 The Pink Shocker made and donated by Una. Thank you.


Thank you Una



Thank you Una

Thank you both.

Please may I remind you my closing date is end of November for Shawls and Sunshine Blankets.
I cannot accept anymore after this date until March next year.

I have a box of Shawls upstairs which will be going to a local Home 
St. Katherines and two boxes of Sunshine Blankets which I will find a Home for.

They certainly add up and I'm always very grateful to you all.

Thank you

Shawls from Norway.

Good afternoon,

It is always so nice when our Blankets and Shawls can get to other parts of the Country and not just the Birmingham area.  Kim has decided to donate to her local Hospice St. Lukes at Basildon. She has made a beautiful Sunshine Blanket and Shawl and she tells me she would like to make more in the future. Decorated with pretty Butterflies these two items are surely going to bring some smiles.



 

I am adding these in to our totals Kim thank you.

Next we have four pretty Shawls from Isrose in Norway.
It is so nice that Ladies in Europe take part in our project and I am always so grateful for your contributions Isrose. Thank you.
Such pretty designs and made beautifully.

Thank you Hilde (Norway).

Two Sunshine Blankets also.
One called 'Spring Crocus' and the other 'Easter Egg'.

It's so nice that you have named your Blankets but I'm afraid the quality of the photos is not good today. The day is quite dull, we've had rain today!

1340 Spring Crocus - Thank you Hilde.

1339 Easter Egg - Thank you Hilde.


Thank you Hilde.

Isrose was very happy that she managed to make these in time for my end of year deliveries.
I'm very grateful to her too!

So thank you both very much indeed.

50 Blankets - Delivery Day!

Good afternoon,

I'm very pleased to be able to show you three Knitted Blankets that Brenda has made and donated.
I love the colours and designs in these Blankets which are a great size and will be so warm.  It was such a pleasure to meet Brenda this morning who lives locally to me. Like many of us she also enjoys various Charity Knitting. It's always so nice to help others at this time of year.

Let's take a look now.

I know Residents are going to find these Blankets very useful indeed Brenda,
thank you so much for making them.



I have also made enquiries at The Foundation of Lady Katherine Leveson at Temple Balsall to see if they would like donations of Knitted and Crocheted Blankets. I'm very pleased to say that Sharon who is the PA to the Reverend Kathy Lloyd Roberts emailed me this morning to say that they would find them very useful indeed.

I have arranged to call at her Mother's House this afternoon to drop the Blankets off and then Sharon will take them to the Care Home for me.

These are the Blankets I have ready for them. 50 in total all beautifully made in such wonderful designs and colours, perfect for this time of year. They will give a great deal of comfort to many older people.

Many thanks to everyone who has donated to the 'SIBOL' Project.
There is still a little time to get your donations to me.
End of November is my closing date for this year.

I do hope the Residents at Lady Katherine Leveson enjoy our
Blankets. I'm sure they will.

Grannies Galore!

Good afternoon,

More beautiful donations to show you this afternoon.

First we have a Knitted Blanket from MarilynJG.
This Blanket is a perfect size for snuggling under.
Great for an armchair or to throw over a bed.

A very pretty Shawl also arrived from Marilyn.
A beautiful design and once again a perfect size for throwing 
around shoulders.
I'm sure both items will be very comforting thank you Marilyn.
