Charity Yarn Bombing – The first contribution gifts come in!

WOW, is what I have to say today, thank you to my blogging friends. There is too much to include in one post but here is a start. First to arrive was this gorgeous parcel from who has sent all these wonderful bunting creations……………………




a host of beatiful flowers…………………….Elisabethandreeflowersand some really beatiful colourful cotton yarn along with 7 balls of baby pink that I am sure can be transformed into pink fishes, flowers or even a few little piggies for us to add to our project.

Of course the piggies will need wings if they are to fit the fantasy theme!


Then there was another bag with pink and peach cotton which I have started to make some flowers with.


They are not quite finished yet I need to add the stamens and another layer to the front to add a bit more dimension, a bit cinderellaish at the moment but they will be transformed over the next few days. Time permitting I will share the finished items later.

Right now to write the next few thank you posts so see you again soon.

      Yes we are very honoured to receive such lovely pieces. No rush about getting yours here, we are asking to receive finished pieces by 1 August just so we have time to sew them all into place. Hope that is going to be ok for you.

      Just wanted to let you know that I received the prettiest thing ever, not in a box but in an envelope. Your gorgeous garland has arrived safely, thank you so much. I love all the bright coloured flowers and the little pearl centres are fab. I have taken pics today so will get on with the text and post about it this week. Thank you again, we really appreciate it so much.

    So glad to see donations coming in. I’m also glad you’ve mentioned ‘early August’ as I wasn’t sure of the deadline.

    what great work from your supporters I wish the cost wasn’t so high to send out from WI to you I would of loved joining in, Love the flowers you are working on look great even without being finished. And yes the little piggy’s would need wings but would look so cute! 🙂

      It spurs me on just to know that you would like to join us, your spiritual support is good to have. We will share lots of photos of the project once we get it all set up. I love the idea of flying piggies I will try to find a pattern, I can see how I would like them to look in my mind I just hope I can find the right pattern.

      Too true, the mail has never been so exciting, it feels like everyday something new arrives. I don’t know how I am going to keep up with all the thank you posts, I won’t have time to crochet!

      You are so kind, I will share lots of photos of the finished project with you all. My friend is a photographer so you won’t have to make do with my amateur efforts!


  9. MollyBean June 29, 2014 / 09:13

    Aaaah, lovely 🙂 I’ll contact you in the next couple of days. I’ve made a few things but didn’t want to promise them until I’d actually made them, they might’ve turned out disastrous and I’d be panicking 😀


    • June 29, 2014 / 09:28

      Thank you, I am sure they will be beautiful, we have asked to have donation in by early August so don’t worry about timing yet. We will be so pleased to receive them when you are ready.


I would love to hear from you
