'Flying The Flag' and 'Vintage, Vintage, Vintage!'.

Good Evening!


For my records.
 

Thank you so much 'akarapacha'.



Can we raise some money for Alzheimer's here in the UK? I do hope so. We have made a 63" Square Crocheted Flag Blanket and it is on EBAY   I would be most grateful if you could write about our Blanket on your Blogs and Facebook pages and please, please link us! We are trying to raise as much money as we can. The Blanket comprises of 100 Crocheted Flag Squares made by Group members in the States and UK and was part of our recent Challenge on SIBOL.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TAKE PHOTOS! Thank you!

I have received three beautiful Crocheted Blankets which have a real 'vintage' feel to them. Why not pop over to SIBOL and read the story!

They have come in from Joanna here in the UK, she has worked so hard with these Blankets and I know you are going to love them!

Your last chance to own a SIBOL! Why not help Alzheimers!

Hello Everyone!

My EBAY auction runs out today! I am auctioning three Blankets to raise money for Alzheimer's here in the UK which effects so many people in this country and worldwide!  Why not support this worthwhile Charity!

All details are over on SIBOL, please pop over!

I am also extremely pleased to be showcasing two fantastic Blankets which have been sent in by Joyce here in the UK.

What wonderful ideas Joyce has had! The first a mouthwatering 'Fruit' Blanket. 'Nice and Fruity!'.

Look at the fruit on this Blanket! Makes your mouth water! Thank you very much Joyce!


Aren't the Squares beautiful! But that's not all. Joyce has made a Blanket to celebrate the 'Diamond Jubilee'. Such a lot of thought has once again gone in to this Blanket. I am over the moon that Joyce has been kind enough to donate both Blankets to SIBOL. I will be delivering them to Nursing Homes very soon indeed!

This Blanket is called 'Celebrations!'.

This is a special 'Diamond Jubilee' Blanket made by joyce28. Thank you so much Joyce! Wonderful!


I told you they were nice, thanks so much Joyce I am terribly grateful to you.

'Molly' SIBOL 169.

Welcome to 'Mrs Twins'

I have had great fun putting together SIBOL 169. Not only are they all beautiful Squares, happy memories started flooding back too! Do you remember 'Molly?' Yes I know you do. A lovely friend over in the States who sadly passed away sometime ago. The middle Square in this Blanket was made by Molly and so I want to name this Blanket in her Memory. Molly was a lovely person, who gave me lots of advice with SIBOL at the very start over two years ago. She also helped me put my SIBOL button on my Blog. She loved her Crafts as we all do. I hope you enjoy looking at the Squares in this Blanket and I know the Blanket will be giving a lot of comfort to our Elderly folk here in the UK.
I'll leave you now with our Blanket 'Molly'.

Thanks to everyone who contributed Squares for this Blanket.
