A Little Crafting Goes a Long Way

I'm sorry I'm late with this post.  I got an infection (like you do )..all is well though.

I have been crocheting and stitching but I really want to show you when there is more to show, if you get my meaning.

I've still be busy in other ways.  My fundraiser for the Mayo Roscommon Hospsice service has now officially started (officialy even though I already have three large bin bags full of baby clothes and blankets, ready to take in lol).

Sunflower Day is the day when the Hospice charities have their official fundraising day so today is when people in Ireland hear about it.

I gave an interview for Mid West Radio which was also filmed.  You can see it here. I explain why the Mayo Roscommon Hospice service is so important and why it isn't about dying but living.  It's disgusting that it is 50% paid for by charity and this is the ONLY palliative care help you will get in Mayo and Roscommon. There is no official state or HSA run support for people living with a terminal disease.

The filmed interview, released on the 9th of June for #SunflowerDays can be found by clicking HERE

We're hoping that some of the many numerous crafters in Ireland will now want to get involved. There are lots of crafting groups and if each member just donated one hand made baby item to the hospice shop, then we are a step closer to our Mother and Baby Event.

If you are interested, we are accepting anything brand new, hand made and baby safe.  If you could attach a little note and say where you are from, then that would be wonderful.  Whoever buys it can see that it has been made from the heart, for a very good cause.

It would be nice if crafters in Mayo and Roscommon could be as generous as the people outside Ireland who have sent me so many amazing baby things.

Aren't they all amazing?

You can send them or drop them off to me, or take them into the Hospice shop yourselves.  If every person in a Roscommon/Mayo crafting group made just one thing, well, it would be amazing wouldn't it?

The third part of M'Lady's Sweet Greenhouse has been released by Lakeside Needlecraft, and this time we have a rose.  Not just any rose, but a variegated rose and yes, it comes accompanied by the next part of M'Lady's story

Right, well that's me done for this week.  Happy crafting!
