Information about our Squares and Blankets.

Good evening and Welcome!

I have noticed on my Live Traffic Feed that we are getting a lot of visitors from Loving Hands. I would like to welcome you all to 'SIBOL'.

'SIBOL' was formed in January 2010 and we have now made 587 'Sunshine Blankets' for the Elderly. With the help of Ladies worldwide we have made some beautiful Blankets. If you have time why not scroll down and have a look at them.

I would just like to let you know if you are new to the Blog that I collect 6" Crocheted or Knitted Squares throughout the year. These are then made in to our Sunshine Blankets. However, if you would like to make a Blanket to donate to the project I would be happy to receive it too.

Blankets sizes should not be any smaller than 36" Square. Anything upwards is fine. Our usual Blankets comprise of 25 = 6" Squares Knitted or Crocheted with a 1 to 2" border. Of course the size depends on what joining method you use.

You can of course make a Large Granny Square using your odd scraps of yarn  or make a Blanket of any other design.  'SIBOL' is a place where you can try new skills, maybe you've seen something new on You Tube you'd like to try. Well please do.

Our 'Sunshine Blankets' have always been very well received in the Homes. Ideal to throw over an Elderly person's lap to give comfort and actually they have always been talking points in the Homes too.

You can be assured if you send Squares to myself here at 'SIBOL HQ', they will be definitely made into a Blanket by myself or one of our 'SIBOLETTE's'.  I never discard any, every Square is welcomed. I never sell any of our Blankets either only the special Charity ones which we make to raise for Charities. That is the same for a donated Blanket too. I hand deliver Blankets and I know where each one has found a Home.

We really have some talented Ladies in the UK and worldwide and with your help we have made a difference to an Elderly persons life. So please think of 'SIBOL' if you are thinking of Crocheting or Knittiing for a Charity.

In finishing I have to say that we have been really busy all year round and I just need a wee break due to Christmas etc., last date for accepting Squares this year is the 30th November. That is the same for accepting Blankets too. I shall be out delivering our Blankets first week of December so unfortunately I can't accept any more after that date. But there is nothing to stop you from making Squares and Blankets throughout November and December and sending them to me in the New Year. I'd be very happy to receive them.

If there is anything you'd like to discuss with me about our 'Sunshine Blankets'  please email Sue on

I thought I'd just put you in the picture. Many thanks ....Oh I've just thought why not join our RAVERLY Group here's the Link.

Many thanks for your support throughout the year.

Bye for now and thanks for visiting!
