'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

We had such fun taking part in the 2012 'Jersey Textile Showcase 


'Your Local Landscape' Blanket has raised £95.00 for Jersey Mencap. Thank you!



when it raised £95.00 for Jersey Mencap.  I was wondering if you would like to help me make a Blanket for next years exhibition.

The theme is 'Festivals'. So I am inviting you to make a 6" Crocheted or Knitted Square with this in mind. 

Where-ever you live in the World each country holds it's own Festivals. If you 'Google' - 'Festivals' you will find lists of various ones held. You know the sort of thing 

Music, Wine, Book, Film, Steam, Religious, etc
Here's a link giving you some ideas.


REQUIREMENTS
6" Crocheted or Knitted Square.
Acrylic yarn.
Festival theme
Lots of colour!

With each Square please enclose a note enclosing details about the Square you have made so I can enclose a sheet with the Blanket.

Please send your Squares as soon as possible. Thank you! 

The Blanket will go on exhibition in the Gallery at the Harbour in Jersey for the duration of the show and then it will be sold to raise funds for Macmillan Nursing

http://www.macmillan.org.uk/HowWeCanHelp/Nurses/AboutMacmillanNurses.aspx

This will not be entered in to the Competition as it will be too big.
This is purely for exhibiting and fund-raising.
