Summer Begins!

Many thanks to anyone who bid on the Help For Heroes Knitted Heroes, and many thanks to the winner of the big ones - you know who you are, and you are a complete star!! We managed to raise nearly £90, which isn't a huge amount but every little bit helps right??

Right, back to business. Work is nearly over for the summer, last classes have taken place and now prep starts for the new ones in September. Kids have broken up from school - it's early days but the first couple of days have been okay so far - no major outbursts. You know it won't last, give them a couple of weeks and they will be fighting like cat and dog!

I am in a finishing mood - makes a change. My dear sister-in-law has only been waiting for a quilt for well over 10 years, okay maybe a lot more than 10 years! I have finally managed to do some thing for her. Nothing fancy and I am ashamed it has taken me so long. After long discussions with Martha about the colours I was using, she suggested this perfect thread for it. It looks great on the quilt.

A close up of the quilting:

I saw these at a friends house and knew I had to have a set - mission accomplished!

Coming out of hibernation at last - another computer virus!! Doomed we are.

Anyway, look at these:

How fantastic are these?? And they could be yours, and you could help raise money for Help for Heroes at the same time!! What more could you want???

These wonderful creations were made for our shop window to raise money - instead we are trying them on Ebay to try and raise a bit more. These are individual, and very unique items, you will not be able to find these in the shops. Hand knitted and the larger ones took over two months to complete.

Just go to Ebay and type in Knitted Heroes and they will come up. There is a Chelsea Pensioner, a sailor and also a RAF figure. So go on, please make a bid....... you know you want to.
If anyone out there would like to put it on their blog too, please do - the more exposure we can get for them, the better. It would be a shame for all the hard work that has gone into them to go to waste, and we want to raise lots of dosh for H4H!!

All proceeds will go to Help for Heroes.
