I made this and mailed it to England, to Sue, who runs SIBOL (Sunshine International Blankets of Love). Sue has now put these owl crochet squares together and made the most beautiful owl blanket! And you may see this blanket here!
They are beautifully made squares, are they not? And I love how Sue has arranged and put them together with that lovely border around the blanket. Thanks, Sue, for allowing my little square to be in the same blanket with all these beautiful owl squares!
Sue takes these crocheted blankets, wraps them beautifully with ribbon and delivers them to nursing homes in England. These squares come to her from all over the world (even from Conyers, Georgia!) and that is why she calls her blog, Sunshine International Blankets of Love, or SIBOL. If you look at her site, you can also see the one that was made for charity for MENCAP and if you look closely at that one, you might spot the one that looks like Stone Mountain, or it looks a bit like Stone Mountain, after all, I am the one who made it!
Wait, didn't I say something about a giveaway? Yes! Now, you should really be excited about this giveway because it is not my giveaway but it is a FANTASTIC giveaway from Meike from Germany! (You would not be reading this blog if it had been for Meike since she is the one who started me on this blog journey so I am very thankful to her!) Meike's Mum is a wonderful knitter and makes the most beautiful and comfortable socks that you can imagine. I won a pair of these socks in a recent giveaway and I love them! LOVE them, I tell you, I would not lie to you! So, make sure you visit Meike and tell her that Georgia Girl With An English Heart sent you! Go now and leave a comment on Meike's blog, which she calls From My Mental Library which you will find right here!
Something hand-knitted from Germany! What do you think about that? Hoping that someone who reads this from my blog might be the one who wins the giveaway! Warm wishes to you all.
Meike's Mum also has an Etsy shop where she sells her hand knitted items. You may find her at the following link:
