We raised £102.00 for Breast Cancer Care! Thanks everyone!

Hi Everyone!

                                                              'UPDATE SATURDAY!'

I am extremely pleased to be telling you that our 'Think Pink' Blanket raised £102.00 for Breast Cancer Care. I am over the moon with the result!


Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 125

Hello Everyone!

Thank you very much for popping in to 'Mrs Twins'  today!

I am posting the same post on 'Mrs Twins' as I have on 'SIBOL.'
This is a very important post to the Crocheting and Knitting Group that I run.
Would you please help by 'Spreading The Word on your beautiful Blogs!
We are trying to raise as much money as we can for Breast Cancer Care.
This illness affects so many Ladies all over the World.
We need your help!
Thank you!

Towards the end of last year one of our 'SIBOLETTES' dear Lotti over on Ravelry made a suggestion to our Group. She suggested making a Blanket in aid of 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month'.  She thought it would be a really nice idea if we made a 'Think Pink' Blanket. What are we good at as a Group? Making Squares and of course Blankets! Our 'SIBOLETTES' were thrilled with this idea and soon after Squares started arriving at Lotti's home.

The Squares had to be made with 'Breast Cancer Awareness' in mind, so pink Squares of course were ideal. They came in all shades of pink and they all had the most wonderful designs. When the Squares were collected, Lotti set about assembling the Blanket.  Several days ago the Blanket arrived back at SIBOL HQ and then I added our famous 'SIBOL' trademark, 'our Butterflies!'.
Today I am very happy to be showcasing this beautiful Blanket and I'm sure you will agree Lotti has made a most wonderful job of it. Each Square has been lovingly made by our 'SIBOLETTES' and it has been an absolute joy to see these gorgeous Squares arrive. I'm absolutely thrilled with this Blanket.

Now the exciting part!  Today we are announcing that this beautiful 'Think Pink'  Blanket will be auctioned over on  EBAY.  This will be 'YOUR CHANCE TO WIN' this stunning Blanket by placing a bid! All proceeds will be sent off to this worthy cause which affects so many women all over the World. I'm sure everyone will agree this is a wonderful idea, but we need your help!

I'm sure you are eager to see the Blanket now.

A Ta - Dah for you! Our SIBOL 'Think Pink' Blanket made by SIBOLETTES from all over the World!

Thank you to Lotti on RAV for co-ordinating this special Challenge.

Would you like to help our Group? Please spread the World on your Blogs! You are most welcome to take a photo of our 'Think Pink' Blanket off our 'SIBOL' web site and give the EBAY link too.  Hopefully, between us all this Blanket can really raise a substantial amount of money. 

Once again may I thank Lotti for organising and assembling this Blanket. Also thanks to each 'SIBOLETTE' that has donated 'PINK' Squares for this particular Challenge. I am really most grateful to each and everyone of you!

  1. Sue, I am so thrilled with how this turned out! I supplied one of the squares and it was so therapeutic for me to be able to do so as I am a two time survivor of breast cancer and this is an issue very near and dear to my heart. Do you happen to know how many other survivors were involved in donating squares? Lotti did an AMAZING job! Thanks to ALL who were involved. I hope it brings about some sizable bids! I mentioned it and linked to it on my Facebook page as well...trying to get the word out! Hugs, Annette

  2. It's a lovely thing your doing :), I have shared your ebay listing on my FaceBook page to help, I hope it dose :). My Nan died of Cancer last November. xox

  3. Hello Annette! I don't actually know the answer to your question, but this is an interesting one! Maybe I will ask if it's not too personal on RAV. Thank you Annette. Also for publicising it for us.
