I have been seeing lots of acts of love in Blogland and recently found Mrs Twins. Such a lovely person who is making blankets for charity. Sunshine International Blankets of Love or SIBOL for short.
Mrs Twins is collecting Granny Squares from all over the world and then hooking them together to make lovely blankets that are given with love to elderly residents in numerous locations in the UK.
This idea struck a chord with me as my Grandma was a resident in a home in the UK for a number of years after suffering a stroke which left her unable to look after herself. I would have liked to know that someone who cared had shared a gift of warmth and love, such a heartfelt gesture that I am sure is most welcome and appreciated by the receiver.
Mrs Twins has a few themes/challenges on the go so you have plenty of inspiration. I had some camouflage wool left over from knitting the boys a 'camouflage bunny' so I thought it would suit the 'Gentlemans Blanket' theme.
Pop over and visit the SIBOL page and see the lovely blankets that Mrs Twins has made and she has even dedicated a slide show to my little squares! They look quite impressive with a bit of professional photography :-)
What a lovely idea and such an inspiration to us all Mrs Twins, Thank you xx
