Introducing a 'special' SIBOL.

Hi Everyone!

Introducing SIBOL 151. 'Emmerdale'.

I am very happy today to be showcasing our 'Emmerdale' Blanket. This is a beautiful Blanket full of the most gorgeous Flower Squares!

I had the idea to send a Blanket up to ITV Studios, where the 'Emmerdale' programme is made. We often see Crocheted Blankets on the back of the sofa in the Dingle Household and I thought it was about time they saw one of ours!  I do hope they show it!

Thanks to everyone that has made these gorgeous Squares, it was such a fun Blanket to make.

Pop over to SIBOL to learn more!
Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' today!

Three donated blankets from the Netherlands.

Fiona (Netherlands) very kindly made and donated these blankets to SIBOL.

Hi everyone!

Such pretty blankets have arrived today. If you'd like to learn more please follow the link to SIBOL. The blankets have been made by Fiona in the Netherlands and they are superb! Each one is so individual and they certainly are a pleasure to look at. You must pop to SIBOL to view our Slide show thank you!

Inspiration for this blanket has come from the colours of the Netherlands Flag. Wow!


A beautiful Granny blanket made in the colours of pink, white and yellow! Stunning!

I think this blanket is so interesting with the centre square and border!

A beautiful Flower blanket for you to see!

Isn't this blanket so pretty!

Hello everyone!

It's lovely to be able to pop into 'Mrs Twins' today to show you a donated blanket which has arrived
from a Lady over on RAVELRY. 'creativegranny' has made a stunning blanket and she has been kind enough to donate it to our SIBOL project.  Once the Olympic work is finished I shall be going out to Nursing homes to deliver our beautiful blankets. 'creativegranny' also made some very pretty Flower squares for our blankets. I'm sure you would like to have a look at them.

Did you enjoy the close up photos of the blanket? Each square has been made in the most gorgeous colour combinations. I just love this blanket and I am extremely grateful to you 'creativegranny!'.

Thank you very much

A Catch up today!

Hi Everyone!

I have lots of new Blankets to show you and if you want to pop over to SIBOL you will see for yourself
how pretty they are! I have been  decorating the house over the last few weeks and helping my Daughter move
into her new home so things have been rather hectic for me here at 'Two Times'. But finally I think I have caught up with myself.

The new Blankets are donated ones, and I am very grateful to the Ladies who very kindly made them. All have been made with such love and care for our Elderly folk in Nursing Homes.

Thank you Katou! It's simply gorgeous!

Thank you so much Maralyn and Sheila. This Blanket is very much appreciated.

here in the UK, around the time of the Olympic Games.

Great Blankets and if you want to read about them please visit our SIBOL web site.
