Ta - Dah! Introducing SIBOL 168!

A striking blanket.

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for popping in to 'Mrs Twins' today.

I'm very happy to be showcasing SIBOL 168. I would like to thank everyone that sent in Squares for this Blanket and I would also like to thank 'jean nock' for assembling this one for me! We certainly are making a lot of Sunshine Blankets for the Elderly and it's a joy to work with your beautiful Squares. Thank you all so much!

The good ol' Granny has been used a lot in this particular Blanket and I'm sure you agree it's another nice one.

I think 'jean nock' has put this one together so well, thank you for your help!

Fred, Dorothy and Joyce!

Hello Everyone!

I am sure you are wondering what these names have to do with me. Well they are all names of Blankets made and donated by Sara here in the UK for SIBOL. She has been very busy over the past few weeks making these Blankets up and on Saturday I received them in the post, how very kind. I'm sure you would like to take a look at them all now.

I've made a Slide Show for you! Sit back and enjoy! What super Blankets! They are all so pretty, cozy and warm. I love them all. These Blankets will be hand-delivered to the Nursing Homes I visit in the next few weeks.

Which is your favourite? I think mine has to be the 'mile-a-minute afghan called 'Dorothy'. Read more about them at SIBOL. They all have names!

Thanks for visiting 'Mrs Twins' today!

Eight donated Blankets Today!

Good Evening to you all!

Eight Blankets were donated to 'SIBOL' today from the Ladies on MSE Knitting Forum. I am extremely grateful to you all. Thank you!

I have felt quite overwhelmed today because in the post this morning I received 8 donated Blankets from the MSE Knitting Forum. Squares have been sent in to Chalky (Linda) and she has very kindly assembled them in to Blankets 'Lappycuddlyghan's' and sent them to 'SIBOL'.

These Blankets are just the prettiest things. The Squares are really interesting, both Knitted and Crocheted. They are all in a variety of colours and the borders are great too.

I can never thank Linda enough for assembling these Blankets and my thanks also go to the Ladies on MSE.

Now if you would like to see these Blankets in more detail, why not pop over to 'SIBOL!'. I have made a Slide Show for you all!

Thanks so much.The Elderly are going to love these Blankets!
