I am very happy to be showing you our 122nd SIBOL. Thanks to everyone that has contributed Squares for this Blanket. I am very pleased how it's turned out! A lot of the Squares have come across from the States our friend Luna. Thank you!
Yes I'm very pleased to be telling you that we have now assembled 3,000 Squares (120 Sunshine Blankets) and I would like to thank each and everyone of you for donating your Squares to SIBOL.
I have three new SIBOLS today for you to look at.
The first one SIBOL 118 called 'Pastels in a Paintbox'. Squares were donated by Jean B and Emily both Ladies in the UK. Thank you both very much indeed. I'm sure you will agree this Blanket is lovely. Such pretty Granny Squares!
The next one is a Flower Blanket. Such pretty Flower Squares! Flower Squares and Grannies are my absolute musts! I love them.
Do you like it? Gorgeous isn't it?
The last Blanket I have to show you has been assembled by 'Jean Nock' and she has made a wonderful job for SIBOL. The border is simply gorgeous. Thank you Jean Nock!
Thanks so much to everyone that has sent me Squares for these Blankets I am most grateful to you.
I have a Slide Show now for you. Let's take a look at these gorgeous Blankets.
I'm sure you will love to see my latest Ta - Dah! It's come all the way from up North 'Edinburgh in Scotland'. A very kind lady 'jenniferane' over on RAV has very kindly designed, made and donated to my
She has given me a lot of details about the Squares and yarn used. So if you would like to know more then please follow this link to SIBOL.
This Blanket is called 'Carols in the Cathedral' and it's superb.
I am very happy to be showcasing SIBOL 116! This is a pretty Blanket with Squares donated by Jean B. (UK) I have had these Squares a few months and it was time to put them together. Don't you just love Grannies?. I think Granny Squares are simply the best! You can do so much with them using a very basic Square.
Let's take a look at how the Blanket turned out, I hope you like it as much as I do!
I've made a Slide Show for you Jean, thank you so much for sending SIBOL the beautiful Squares!
It is always nice to make and finish a new SIBOL, but the one I am showing you today I have not had to work on, because it has been donated by 'jean nock'. jean nock not only sent me another SIBOL but she also made some gorgeous Squares and Butterflies too.
So this is a Ta - Dah for SIBOL 115. Can you believe that already?

I have made a Slide Show for you to look at, sit back and enjoy now!

Thanks to everyone that has contributed Squares for SIBOL 114. The Blanket was assembled by jean nock and she has made a brilliant job of it. So thank you to jean nock too! The Squares are all so lovely.
While I am getting our 'Sunshine Blankets' ready for the Nursing Homes, Ladies over on Ravelry have been doing a few Challenges on my behalf. One of the Ladies 'Amanda' of mandas' challenges has very kindly suggested a 'Snowman theme'.
The Squares have been arriving for this Challenge and Amanda very kindly assembled the Squares together using the 'flat braiding' method. I'm sure you will agree the Blanket is beautiful. Thanks to everyone that has sent in Squares for this Challenge. Thanks to Amanda for making the Blanket up for us. This Blanket along with the others will be going to Nursing Homes.
Here's the 'Snowman Blanket' and I think Amanda should think of a name now.
Each Square has been lovingly made with SIBOL in mind. Each Square is just so different, a joy to look at!
It's very nice to be popping in to 'Mrs Twins' to show you our latest SIBOL. This is the 109th already. Gosh it doesn't seem five minutes since our 100th!

It has been one of those 'very exciting' SIBOL days! You know when that word 'WOW!' comes to mind. In the post this morning I received four, yes four Sunshine Blankets! They were assembled by Linda of Chalky's World and the Squares were donated by the Ladies on the MSE thread.
I just could not believe my eyes when I opened the large parcel. How very kind! The Ladies on the MSE thread work hard all year round for various Charities. They are such a kind bunch. I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your Squares. These Blankets will be delivered with the rest October/November time. As I said on SIBOL, the Elderly are going to have some really beautiful Blankets covering their knees throughout the Winter.
Well done Linda 'Chalky' for assembling them so beautifully and well done to the Ladies on MSE too. Thank you all so much.
Let's have a look now at the Blankets.
I've made a Slide Show for you to showcase your beautiful Blankets thank you all so much! I love them.
Have a good evening everyone, thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins'
