Sunshine Blankets arrive from The Netherlands and the UK!

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.


Wrapped up in one of the Butterflies will make it a perfect gift.

Thank you Anne - Netherlands   -   To Fathers Cabin.



Annetjehh also sent me some yarn and Butterflies which will be very useful.

Thank you very much indeed!

Next we have two Sunshine Blankets from Philippa.  Once again these two Blankets will be perfect for two lucky gents!  I love the colours in these Knitted Blankets and once again perfect to throw over while sitting in a chair.

Thank you Philippa.


Thank you Philippa.

14 Sunshine Blankets to Rothsay Grange, Andover.

Good afternoon,

I would like to thank Jan today for donating 14 Sunshine Blankets to a local Care Home to where she lives.  As you will be able to see her work is absolutely beautiful and I am honoured that she wanted to do this in our 'SIBOL' name. Jan must have spent many, many hours on these Blankets and as you will be able to see from the photos they truly are works of art!

14 Sunshine Blankets delivered to Rothsay Grange, Andover thank you.  Jan you're brilliant.

"I wrote to you at the start of the year to say that I wanted to make some SIBOL blankets to take to a local residential care home to give to the residents at Christmas.  I have crocheted fourteen blankets this year and took them to the Rothsay Grange care home in Andover this afternoon.  The residents were delighted with them and couldn't believe I wasn't charging the. for the blankets.

Names of the blankets from the collage photo I sent you starting at the top from L - R:

Jan's Garden
Emma's Legacy (named after my Great Aunt who taught me to crochet when I was 8 years old)
Lavender's Blue
Rippling Brook
Rainbow Delight
Kingsclere Harlequin
Ocean Blue
Crazy Kites
English Country Garden
Flowers In The Snow
Rose Garden
Fields of Gold
Summer Song



14 Sunshine Blankets delivered to Rothsay Grange, Andover thank you.

Stunning Blankets and some great names too Jan.

We now have some photos of the Residents receiving the Blankets.
This is especially nice as they gave permission to us using them.

I can see the Blankets are going to give a great deal of comfort to them.

14 Sunshine Blankets delivered to Rothsay Grange, Andover thank you.

I can't thank you enough Jan.

Next year I will be trying to encourage Ladies to do the same as I feel we need to get our Sunshine Blankets further afield.

We need Ladies like you Jan!

Thank you so much,

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.
