Marie Curie Cancer Care Daffodil Blankets are finished. Pop in and have a look at them!

Good Evening,

A very hot day here in the UK today and to be honest I have spent the whole day virtually on-line up-dating our 'SIBOL' Blog. There is always so much going on in our Group and I do like to keep everything up to date for you.

First of all I do hope you will scroll down to previous post and view the beautiful work from wilfi over in the Netherlands. It just can't be missed!

On Thursday September 13th I started a new Challenge off. I had the idea to make 9 Daffodil Blankets for the 9 Marie Curie Cancer Care Hospices here in the UK. I invited Ladies over on RAVERLY and in Blogland also on Flickr  to help me by making a Daffodil Square. The task actually was quite daunting and there was a time when I thought no...... we will never be able to complete this Challenge, but with the help of Ladies worldwide I am very happy to be telling you that it is now finished.

Yesterday the final Blanket was finished by wilfi and I send her my thanks.

We have now made 9 Blankets which will be donated to the 9 Hospices up and down the Country. Marie Curie Cancer Care have Hospices in Belfast Ireland, Bradford, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hampstead, Liverpool,  Newcastle and the West Midlands.

These are the Blankets which will be donated to the Hospices.

The 10th Blanket which we made will be auctioned on EBAY.

If you are interested in purchasing this Blanket yourself why not email me

All reasonable offers will be considered.

Marie Curie Cancer Care Blanket to be auctioned.

Now I will prepare the Blankets for sending off to the Hospices and I will do my best to ask them for some photographs of them receiving them.

I will let you know when the Blanket is ready for auction too if it hasn't been sold through a private sale.

All money raised will be given to the Marie Curie Cancer Care organisation.

I would like to thank everyone for their fantastic support with this Challenge.
Each Square has been lovingly created by Ladies worldwide and I can't thank you all enough!
