A Bunting Square arrives today.

Good Morning.

The SIBOL "Sunshine International Blankets of Love" Group will be making a blanket for the Jersey Textile Showcase to raise money for the Macmillan Nursing charity. SIBOL  is an online Crocheting and Knitting Group based in Birmingham, UK with members all over the World.
As the theme for 2014 is "Festivals", the group is inviting ladies to make a 6” crocheted or knitted square with this in mind, so that the Blanket can be auctioned with the proceeds going to Macmillan Nursing. Should you wish to take part, please contact: Sue McGorie -
The requirements for the project are:
 6” Crocheted or Knitted Square in Acrylic yarn with a Festival theme so this means lots of colour!
With each square please enclose a note enclosing details about the square you have made so it can be included on the info sheet to go with the blanket.
Since SIBOL was formed in January 2010, the group has made 558  blankets which have all been so well received by the elderly. The aim is to send a "ray of sunshine into their lives, hoping that one of the blankets will bring a smile to their face and will let them know that someone maybe thousands of miles away is thinking of them". The group also make Charity Blankets raising money for worthwhile causes such as the Alzheimer’s Society, Jersey Mencap, Breast Cancer Care and Prince William's Charity Gift Fund.
To pretty our Blanket up even more and continue the theme of Festivals, I am inviting you to make a Bunting Square. The Square must be 6" Knitted or Crocheted and made in the colours of purple, orange, fuchsia pink, lime green, red and turquoise.
joyce28 has helped me out on this one and has sent in a perfect Square. Let's take a look now.
This is a great Square thank you joyce28!
