MRS TWINS/SIBOL 'Sunshine International Blankets ADMIN February 19, 2010
Welcome Everyone!
If you require any information on my 'Sunshine Blankets for the Elderly'
Please visit (14th Feb) post.

I'm making Blankets for the Elderly and you are most welcome to join in the fun!
6" Knitted or Crocheted Squares are needed to help in this worthwhile project.
Thank you.

Group Description

Back in January 2010 I had an idea. I wanted to make Blankets for the Elderly. In Memory of my Grandmother who lived to the most wonderful age of 103.

I asked my on-line Friends on Flickr and my blog 'Mrs Twins' if they wanted to donate 6" x 6" Crocheted or Knitted Squares. I was amazed because everyone seemed so interested. Soon after Squares from America arrived, and then other Countries.

I realised I needed to start an on-line Crocheting and Knitting Group Blog purely for the Blankets. This I did and with the on-line help from my Friends we decided on a name 'SIBOL' - Sunshine International Blankets of Love.

Then I decided to make a Group on Flickr.
'SIBOL' - Sunshine International Blankets of Love - Blankets for the Elderly in the UK.
This is for you to send the pictures of your Squares once you have made them so others can see.

All Squares will be assembled into Blankets and delivered to Nursing Homes. My Grandmother was very lucky she didn't have to go in a Nursing Home, she lived on her own very independently in good health and had lots of visitors. But I realise there are many people who aren't so lucky and they don't have visitors either. It is to these people our 'Sunshine Blankets' would be aimed at..

If you are interested in helping me
Email me (main blog) (Challenges 2011) (Patterns of Squares for you to try).
Thank you.

Group Rules

I will only accept photos of your squares which are to be donated to 'Sunshine Blankets for the Elderly' my 2010 project. This is where you can upload your photos before sending the squares off to me, so others can see. It's nice to put them on 'Slideshow' for a better viewing.
Thank you.,
