Well I've had quite a delivery today over on SIBOL - three parcels full of wonderful goodies for Residents in our Care Homes. I would like to thank 'jessiebonbon' and also 'Liztelf' for sending in some superb work.
First of all let's take a look at two pretty Sunshine Blankets sent in by Liztelf.
The first one is called 'Eight Pointed Flower Power'. The pattern is by Julie Yeager.
Liztelf this is such a pretty Sunshine Blanket. The Squares are really very interesting and each one is made in a different coloured yarn which is Stylecraft. I just love the flat braid joining method you have used and I know this Blanket is going to be loved by a very lucky Resident. The Blanket measures roughly 38" Square which is a great size for someone and it is going to be so warm.
If you would like more information on this Blanket please follow the LINK.
and a close up of the Squares now. Superb work! I love it thank you.
The next one is called 'Let it Snow!' Details are on this LINK.
Another pretty Square used in this Blanket and once again a beautiful selection of colours used. I'm ever so grateful to you Liztelf. I know how much time goes in to the making of just one Blanket but to make two well I think that's very kind of you.
A pretty Square and this Blanket is so.....colourful!
Thank you very much!
Not only did Liztelf make two Sunshine Blankets for Residents she also made a Shawl.
I love this Shawl - a simple Half Granny Shawl made in lovely shades of Grey.
I am so grateful to you Liztelf thank you so much for all your hard work.
'jessiebonbon' has also sent in three pairs of Gloves for Residents in Care Homes. If you remember I have been asking if anyone would like to make a small Knitted or Crocheted item which we can give out at Christmas time. Items such as Gloves, Scarves, Bed Socks, Warm Hats, Crocheted or Knitted Slippers, Bed Jackets etc. would be very much appreciated thank you.
'jessiebonbon' has sent in these wonderful Gloves. The Brown ones would be great for a Man. Thank you so much. She also sent in some pretty Butterflies for our Blankets. I'm grateful to you too 'jessiebonbon'. I will be sure to give them out at Christmas time.
'SIBOL' is a place where we can be creative but at the same time doing something worthwhile for the Elderly and if you think you can support us in any way please do not hesitate to contact me.
