We have a SIBOL blanket for Sale please pop in!

Good afternoon to you all and thanks for visiting 'SIBOL',

Some months ago Chalky of 'Chalky's World' suggested a Challenge for the SIBOL Group. Waiting for her cataract removal operation here in the UK, it got her thinking how fortunate we are here in the UK to be able to have these operations. But can you imagine what it would be like if we lived somewhere else where these operations were not available. She suggested a Challenge for us inspired by the words of 'All things bright and beautiful' and I invited Ladies worldwide to send a design on a  6" Crocheted or Knitted Square with the words from this hymn in mind. We also took inspiration from Louis Armstrongs 'What a Wonderful World'. We have had some amazing Squares and I would like to thank everyone for taking part.

This blanket is going to be auctioned on EBAY and I will let you know when this is organised but I will accept offers privately. So if you are interested in purchasing this wonderful blanket please contact me Sue on

All of our SIBOL blankets are so unique and this is a one-off piece of work. Perhaps you know someone who has recently had a cataract operation and they too are grateful for the help of the Doctors. All proceeds from this blanket will go to 'Sight Savers', where the money will go towards helping others abroad.

Here's the 'Sight Savers' Link. 

Thanks to jessiebonbon for assembling 'What a Wonderful World' Thanks everyone!
