A Big Thank You

To all those who blogged and or placed a bid on the knitted auction, many thanks! The winning bid was £113, which is all going to the Japanese Tsunami and Earthquake Fund. Well done to the lovely ladies who knitted and our fantastic co-ordinator who organised the whole project.

Your Invite To The Royal Wedding

Just a quick note to let you know that the ebay auction for the Royal Wedding party is now live. Please bid genorously as all monies raised will be going to the Japanese Relief Effort.

I would also really appreciate it if you would be kind enough to mention the auction on your blog/twitter etc so we can raise as much interest as possible. Thank you x

Why I (Don't) Blog

I sometimes wonder why I have a blog as I don't post very often. I would like to post more - I often see things that inspire me and I think would make great posts, but for some reason I find it difficult to actually put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard in this digital age). I don't know if this is due to a kind of 'creative dyslexia', or just my natural laziness.
Anyway, I have a few not-great things happening at the moment, which aren't encouraging blogging or frankly any other endeavours. Although none of them are on a par with the awful events going on in the wider world, they are significant to me. I seem to do a lot of posts along these lines, so apologies for my general blogging laziness and many thanks if you're still following me as I genuinely love hearing from other folks x

Bishop In Da House!

I'm finally back in the land of blogging! 
I have recreated the Archbishop of Canterbury from yarn in aid of the Japan Tsunami Relief fund. And he took friggin' ages!

Not sure I have done him justice, but hopefully he'll raise a smile (and some dosh). A group of us from a craft forum have knitted the key players from the upcoming Royal Wedding and they're being auctioned on ebay from thursday (I'll let you know when it goes live) in aid of the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Relief effort. The auction will be open to international bidders.
