Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' today.
Most of you know I run an on-line Crocheting and Kntting Group called 'SIBOL'.
Throughout the year we make 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly in Nursing Homes.
At the moment we have a special Challenge running.
To make a special one-off Blanket to celebrate the Olympics London 2012 Games.
I need your help though.
Do you Knit or Crochet?
Would you like to make a 6" (15cms x 15cms) Square?
If you do pop over to our SIBOL CHALLENGES web-site.
Squares are invited with the Olympics in mind.
So why not make a Flag of your own Country?
Maybe a Square with an Event in mind. Cycling, Swimming, Running?
Or maybe the Olympic Circles, Olympic Flame, Olympic Logo?
Please join us and have fun.
Why not tell your Followers about our SIBOL project?
I would be pleased if you did.
I want to make a really big Blanket full of variety, and lots of colour!
Then hopefully we can raise money for the Alzheimers Society here in the UK.
Here are some of the Squares which I have received already.
Aren't they gorgeous?
I'm off to a Tropical island today where I can laze about on a deserted beach. What comes to mind on a Tropical island? Yes colourful birds, beautiful flowers, refreshing fruit and plenty more. Just take a look at SIBOL 85!
I would like to thank everyone for the Squares for this Challenge. Your imagination has run riot again and you have come up with the most magical Squares. I am truly blessed to receive them and I hope you like what I've managed to do with them. It's been an absolute pleasure to make this Blanket up.
Do you like it? Do you want to see more? Here is our 85th Slide Show!
Thank you once again Ladies for taking part, your Squares have been fantastic and I have loved each one.
I'm very happy to be showcasing our 84th 'Sunshine Blanket'. What fun we are having!
I would like to thank Jean Nock for assembling this Blanket for me. The Squares have been sitting waiting to be assembled and I'm really pleased how this Blanket has worked out now. Beautiful Squares, lovely colours in shades of Pink and Green. I think the white border finishes it off beautifully.
I do hope you like this Blanket, I know I do. It's so lightweight too and I'm sure one Elderly person is just going to love it.
If you'd like to see some beautiful Rowan yarn I bought yesterday please pop over to SIBOL and have a look.
Yes, another Ta - Dah! This one is the third Jan Eaton Blanket that we have put together. The Blocks have been chosen from Jan Eaton's 200 Block Book. We will be doing the next 25 Blocks, but not just yet. I have to get down my Challenges first.
I'm sure you will agree the Squares are beautiful.
Thanks to everyone that has taken part.
Maybe you would like to see the Olympic Squares which have come in. Please pop over to .SIBOL.
I am very happy to be showing you the latest Sunshine Blanket and this one was not assembled by me either. All the Squares were made by Jean Nock and the Blanket was then assembled and donated to our SIBOL project. Kindness from Flickr Ladies never fails to amaze me! I am just so touched by the kindness Jean Nock has shown. She has made each of these 25 Squares so beautifully, all wonderful colours. Lots of Granny Squares in numerous colour combinations! It's just fantastic how they have been made and put together. This Blanket is really lovely and I'm so grateful to you because you are donating it to our SIBOL project.
Thank you very much Jean Nock, it is very much appreciated.
Well lots of you know me as the 'Queen of SIBOL!' :) Well today I haven't got a hook in my hand which makes a change..... I had a completely 'hook free' day a few weeks ago when I went and had a Makeover/Photo Shoot with Little Miss Twins (1).
I've had the photos arrive at last today and I thought I would show you all!
I know another Ta - Dah! What fun! This is Number 79. I've had these Squares for quite a while. Are any yours? Do have a look, and if they are click on the photo and go through to Flickr where you can add note on your Square! Thank you to everyone that has very kindly contributed.
Busy days for me, but all good fun! Thank you to everyone once again!
A busy week with Blankets and Squares on SIBOL I'm having such fun and the Blankets are adding up.
Here's the latest one, Squares were donated from wiLDaBoUtCoLoR (USA). Such a pleasure to work with. I hope you like it.
I'm really pleased how it's turned out, thank you so much wiLDaBoUtCoLoR!
I am very happy to be showing you SIBOL 77! 'Rhapsody in Blue'. These SIBOLS are coming along so....fast lately!
SIBOL No.77 is a beautiful Blanket. It has been made by Coxabey over on RAV. How kind of her to make each Square, assemble them and send the Blanket all finished to SIBOL! She has been working on it very hard over the last few months. Now I have made the Butterflies it is ready to show you!
Thank you so much Coxabey. If you want any details about the Squares, I'm sure you would like to visit her RAV space. Here' the link.
It's so nice to receive a Blanket already made! The tones in this Blanket are just so cooling!
