My Charity Donations

Posted on Leave a comment

I have been busy setting up my charity page, it’s not the usual donation type page, it is just me raising money to give to our two local care homes.

The money that is raised doesn’t go towards a cure because I think these people need a good time now and that’s the intent of my donations, to give them days out, things that will keep them occupied like:

  1. flower arranging
  2. days out
  3. money for a Christmas party for them
  4. any other special occasion

Sometimes they go out on little visits to other care homes and have ice cream and cake, there are lots of things that they can do.

So have a look at my charity page where you can read all about what I am doing, you can find it along the top menu or just click right here…

Summer In the Garden

Posted on Leave a comment

What a lovely day, the sun is shining and there is a gentle breeze, it is glorious.

I am sitting in the garden crocheting a blanket for my mum and I thought I would share my lovely perfumed roses with you.

The plants in the tub are tomatoes, love Tom’s straight from the Bush they taste so good.

Here is the shaded area, there is a fountain right in the corner and the hanging tree is around 30ft high and its branches all sway in the breeze, beautiful.

I am so glad summer is here at last, it felt like we had a long winter.

Twiddle Muff Update

Posted on Leave a comment

I’ve done some more on my twiddle muff and I think it’s turning out ok, there are so many ends to finish off, it’s going to take me ages, never mind.

The white area will be the inside of the muff and I have added bits to twiddle and a fluffy pom pom.

I have added on the outside, a line of chain with some beads that can be moved up and down, then in yellow there are some different stitches and three hoops to play around with, I might add some buttons to those.

This is all chunky yarn so far, the white that will be on the inside is so soft I love working with it, can’t wait to add more pieces on the outside will update soon…
