Yesterday was fabulous! We had an amazing turnout for the crochet along-most of the ladies who came last time came again and we had some new faces as well! We had a great time chatting away, talking about the cause, swapping crafting stories and it's been wonderful for me to make friends of a like mind :-D
Two ladies have made a blanket each already! Bonnie has made this gorgeous piece in a lovely chunky yarn.
Claire has made this fantastic blanket-it is her very first one! She's done a brilliant job with it :-) Well done sweetie!
These two gorgeous squares were sent in all the way from the Netherlands by Fiona from the SIBOL ravelry group-thank you darling, they are wonderful!
By the end of the evening I brought home a lovely bundle of squares :-)
Great work ladies!
This morning, I bumped into Lisa-she came to the last crochet along but was working last night so she handed me these lovely three squares today! Great work Lisa!
This is the pile so far-
143 so far!
Would you like to get involved?
Here's what it's all about-
'Cwtch of Comfort' requests blankets to donate towards bereavement
boxes for the '2Wish Upon A Star' charity that supports families
suffering the loss of a child. I have been inspired by the amazing SIBOL
project to ask people to send me squares as many find the thought of
making a whole blanket a tad overwhelming! So with your help, I'm
hoping to have a whole big pile of squares to work with by the end of
this month. Could you help?
Here's what I need you to do:
Make a square!
It can be either knitted or crocheted
It must be approx 6" (knitted can be a little bit smaller)
Pale pastel gender neutral colours or White only please
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you my address :-)
deadline for squares is the end of May 2015-I'd really like to have
lots and lots of squares to put together and any help would be so
appreciated. Even a share on your blog would be a massive help!
