As I have said in previous posts, our Jersey Textile Showcase 'Festivals Challenge' is ending in November. This is the last chance to make a Square and send it for our special Challenge. So all Squares need to be here by 30th November. Thank you. All details are on here. I am also collecting Squares with Bunting Knitted or Crocheted on to it. If possible the Bunting must be in these colours, purple, orange, fuchsia pink, lime green, red and turquoise. But please do not worry if you haven't got them all.
Today bonsall sent in two Squares for our Blanket. 'Festivals of Colour' why not indeed! A fantastic idea and these Squares are definitely very colourful bonsall. I love them thank you.
At 11.30 this morning I visited Irene our 90 year old Knitter.
We had a lovely chat and I came away with these colourful Squares that Pat and herself had Knitted for us.
We chatted about Knitting and as Irene had already started a Square
I asked her if she would show me how to Knit.
She showed me plain and purl and next time I visit she is going to show me how to
cast on. What fun we both had this morning!
I asked Irene if she would take a photo on my phone. I don't know
why this went to Black and White. But here it is.
Anyway I have come away with enough Squares for 4 Blankets at least.
So more Blankets for the Elderly!
Thank you Pat and Irene.
Just thought I would let you know too that yesterday I did this.
ITV’s ‘This Morning’ has been asking people to tell them about their ‘Moment of Kindness’. I thought it would be nice if I told them about what we did yesterday. For everyone filling out the form they will donate £5.00 to the Text Santa appeal.
Here’s the Link.
Here’s the Link.
So I told them about us making the Sunshine Blankets and delivering 18 to Stennards Care Home yesterday.
Thanks for visiting today!
