I love all of this colour!

Good morning,

I would like to thank Mrs J Carney for her beautiful Knitted Blanket received for the 'SIBOL' project.
This is a wonderful donation. A great size and such pretty Squares. Thank you so much.


Today I received 4 Sunshine Blankets from Janet down in Devon. I am so pleased you have also come across our project and your Blankets will also be passed on as soon as possible. Colours and Squares are so bright and cheerful and a great way of using your Squares.

A delivery to Broomfield Hospital.

Good morning and welcome,

I have delivered such a lot of Sunshine Blankets to Care homes in the Birmingham area over the years that I am trying to encourage new Ladies to make and donate nearer to their own homes. Susan has taken me up on this Challenge. Yesterday she emailed me to tell me about her visit, I thought you'd be interested to read how she got on.

Susan is taking these Shawls and Blankets to Broomfield Hospital thank you!

" I took the blankets and shawls to Broomfield today. I had telephoned before my visit, and the ward Clark on the dementia ward was expecting me. She paged Julie the Dementia Nurse Specialist who wanted to come and meet me. Both she and the ward Clark we're delighted with all the blankets and shawls.
It was lovely to meet Julie as I had only spoken to her on the phone. She left two items with Baddow ward, and kept the rest to share around the hospital. She told me that giving one of my previous blankets to one lady had had a marked effect on her mood. She said it was lovely to see the change in her expression as she was given the blanket, and staff had said how much pleasure it had given her when Julie had followed up a few days later.
So here's to the next batch. I'm aiming on brighter colours, and textures. As well as the more simple Granny square patterns."

Susan this is a wonderful result I'm so pleased that everything went well.
Your Shawls and Sunshine Blankets were made beautifully and I'm sure your visit will be a talking point for many days to come.

If anyone would also like to deliver near to where they live please contact me for a pdf label. Then you can donate on behalf of SIBOL and I can count them in to our totals.

Thank you Susan.

Yarn Donation.

Good Morning,

I would just like to thank Orange Zoo over on Flickr for a very generous donation of yarn received today. I shall be making a Blanket with these beautiful colours for SIBOL.

I'm so pleased you have found a home for your un-wanted stash. We all have phases of crafting and at the moment Orange Zoo is sewing lots of beautiful items to raise money for animal charities here in the UK so the yarn is not needed.

Thank you Orange Zoo. Your donation of yarn to SIBOL is very much appreciated.

Thank you so much Orange Zoo.

Flowers and Butterflies.

Good afternoon,

I would like to show you some beautiful Shawls and Sunshine Blankets that Susan has made. She is taking them into Broomfield Hospital which is only a bus ride away from where she lives. This is a great way of getting our work further afield.

Let's take a look now.

Susan is taking these Shawls and Blankets to Broomfield Hospital thank you!


I have counted these Blankets into our totals Susan thank you.

If anyone else would like to make and donate Sunshine Blankets near to where they live. I can send a 'pdf' label which you could attach.  What a fantastic collection of Shawls and Blankets I'm sure they will be very useful. Thanks for doing this Susan.

Berryqueen has sent me a Shawl this morning. Decorated with a Butterfly and very pretty flowers this is going to be so very useful.  I'm sure one lucky Resident is going to be very proud wearing it.

Thank you Berryqueen

Thank you Berryqueen.
