Updated Slideshow for 'Sunshine Blankets for the Elderly'. 'Show and Tell Friday'.

Hi Everyone, Especially because it's 'Show and Tell' Friday again, hosted by Cindy.

I was so excited this morning the Postie walked down my drive again! What did he bring with him? Another package this time from my friend Susanna in Austria. Susanna often reads my blog although she doesn't have a blog of her own and I'm very pleased she does because she's taking part in my project. 'Blankets for the Elderly 2010'.(New readers please see 14th Feb post). My email address is if you want to help.

I opened the package and inside found some beautiful squares,not just one! But 20! I know 20! I was amazed. I'm sure you will agree they are beautiful, the colours are so bright and cheerful I can see they are going to be a great addition to my blanket! Thank you Susanna.

Do you want to see? What a lovely pile of squares!

What a pile of wonderful colours! Thank you Susana!

Please visit I'm making Blankets for the Elderly. Would you like to join in the fun? These are squares from Austria, Susanna! Thank you :)

Just look at these beautiful squares! Thank you Susanna! All the way from Austria.

Beautiful coloured Squares make up a Blanket for the Elderly. My project for 2010. Do you want to help me? Please visit

I always sit on the floor by the fire. Just look at those beautiful squares!

I've had some wonderful comments off people and I want to thank everyone for them.

MOLLY from the USA suggested I call the Blankets 'Sunshine Blankets for the Elderly' because when people receive them it will be like a ray of sunshine into their dreary world. I think I'm going to take this idea on board. Do you think it's a good name?

I should have Blanket no2 ready next week. Until then here's my updated Slideshow with Susannas squares.

Have a good weekend everyone!


  1. Busy lady! Second blanket almost ready? Amazing! :-)

    Susanna's squares are beautiful, very bright matching colours indeed. What a happy blanket they will make!

    Hope you have a good weekend too. Hugs.

  2. I can't wait to see next weeks SUNSHINE 2. I want in, I want mine in, I want to be next to one of these beauties that just arrived. This must be sooooooo much fun to see all these charmers coming in. This has been a wonderful idea.

    Have a great weekend -
    Spring is coming

  3. The first blanket turned out wonderful. I still have mine here in Texas. Will send them when mine can be called a "stack."

    I love seeing all the new squares you have rolling in.

    And that's a great name -- perfect!

  4. I love granny blankets, especially the colorful ones. You are doing a great job here.

  5. I think the "flowers" on the birdcage was SO pretty. I also LOVE the quilt. Such bright, cheery colors. Thanks for sharing

  6. Thank you for Donauwalzer especially for me :-). It made me smile. I am happy the squares arrived so fast.

  7. Yes, I think that 'Sunshine Blankets' fit the bill perfectly as they are sooooooo cheerful and uplifting. Thanks for popping by Sue, I'm still thinking about the pink iron, lol! Have a great weekend.
