'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.

Christian's Star Appeal - Would you like to help?

Hi everyone!

Can you help please?

As a Group we have been making 'Sunshine Blankets' for Residents in Care Homes since January 2010. In total we have made and distributed 1059 which is an amazing achievement. Ladies all over the world have sent Squares and Blankets to me to help people in the UK and from time to time I think it's good to help others.


One of the Ladies in our 'SIBOL' Group 'Judith Hunter'  is fund-raising for her neighbour's little boy. He suffers with Cerebral Palsy and has now been given the opportunity to have an operation which could allow him to walk unaided and reach his full potential in life.

Unfortunately he will not receive funding due to the  limited funds in the NHS and friends and family are fund-raising for him.

Judith is asking whether any Ladies either in the UK or Worldwide would like to make and donate

A Crocheted 'Star Blanket' in any size  and colour.

 Her aim is to re-sell the Blanket at Byfleet Village 150th Parish Day mid-July.

All proceeds from the Blankets received  will go towards the Operation costs and everyone who donates a Blanket will be entered into a prize draw to win a bag of wool 'Care of the Wool Stop' /Judith.

If you would like to read Christian's Story please follow the https://www.justgiving.com/Dyeingtowalk/

For any enquiries please contact Judith Hunter
on Hunterjnn@aol.com

I'm waiting for her to join our RAV Group and then hopefully she will answer any questions you may have.

Thank you all!


Pattern for Star Blanket.

Here's the LINK to the Pattern.


A post on the side bar will remain until the Parish Day has taken place.
Thank you
Sue
