Time flies!

Hi Everyone!

It's not like me at all to let my blogs lag behind and for that I am truly sorry! Time flies doesn't it! I have to admit it took me quite a while to get back in to the swing of things after Christmas. We work so hard Knitting and Crocheting just before Christmas trying to get those last minute presents made up and then after Christmas we are totally exhausted.

I did actually take a wee break over Christmas from my SIBOL work. We have been running two years in February and every day I have been totally devoted to our Sunshine Blankets but I felt it was time to take a wee break as I said to do what I felt I wanted to do.  I felt the urge to make some Granny Blankets and this is what I made.

My Granny Blanket Experience over Christmas!

I felt the Granny Square Blanket experience was just so relaxing and these little beauties measure roughly 36" Square. The pastel one on the end is roughly 32".

Of course I have been carrying on with my SIBOL work during January although I haven't been posting on here, I have on SIBOL.

I was very happy to receive a great Blanket from Coxabey (UK)  'SIBOL 123' This one was called 'Fruit Bowl' and it is just so pretty. Coxabey after making the Blanket could not find a use for it and so she donated to SIBOL! That was extremely kind of her and I know that the Blanket will go a long way to keeping someone warm!

'Fruit Bowl'.

I also had another Blanket donated by Craftymizz. This one is a stunner too! She calls it 'One for the Guys!' and you will see by the colours that they are a mans colour! I am very happy to be accepting this Blanket from you Craftymizz and this one too will be ideal to give to an Elderly person.

This Blanket has very kindly been made and donated by Craftymizz (Steph) (UK)

This really is a gorgeous Blanket.

If you pop over to the SIBOL Blog you will read all the latest news but I will tell you on here that we are due to auction a 'Think Pink' Blanket very soon on EBAY and when the details are announced I would love everyone all over the World to write a post on your Blogs advertising this great event!

It will be your very own chance to own an official 'SIBOL' Blanket and all monies raised will go towards 'Breast Cancer Care'. I really am trying to raise as much money as we can for this special and worthy cause which has affected so many women all over the World. It is absolutely beautiful and I will be showcasing it on here and on SIBOL very very soon! So please look out for that special Blanket.

Well I think finally I have caught up with my news and I will try to post more regularly on 'Mrs Twins'. Thank you so much for your wonderful support.

  1. Always nice to hear from you Sue.
    Don't knock yourself out with the SIBOL blankets though I guess you have the pressure being buried under an avalanche of squares if you don't keep going.

  2. Happy new year Sue, long time no speak. You've done such a fantastic job with SIBOL, I think you deserve a break, but it looks like you have still been very busy.

    It's great that you are now doing something for breast cancer, I had a really big scare several years ago and really had to push to get early diagnosis, but, fortunately, everything is OK now, so it's always something that I really support.
    Sending kind regards,

  4. Sue,it can be hard to keep a blog going - I've found that too. You deserve a rest, and it makes sense to do whatever you enjoy doing. You've certainly been busy with your lovely granny blankets. Best wishes for youe 'think pink' challenge. I'll keep a lookout for it - it'll give me something to write a blog post about!

    Take care Janet x

  5. Thank goodness you took a rest... well, sort of, I would say. Love those grannies. You can actually take a rest when ever you like. You know it's good for the soul and mind to step away for a while. I have found that you all are still there. We don't go away.
