Congratulations, Happy Hookers!
It is with great pride that I announce that the S & B fund raising group, The Happy Hookers, have reached the total of £2060 for the Beatson! This is more than double the target that they had hoped to achieve. A big well done to all concerned. it is a fitting tribute to Margaret and Yvonne's husband.
I sewed a couple of injection driver bags for the Beatson this week.
Elaine crocheted some squares for Lisa's charity make of blankets and woolly hats for the Sick Kids at Yorkhill (now based at the new Southern General) undergoing treatment for cancer etc.
Donna had some of this yarn left over from another project and crocheted two mini cowls as the weather was limping into autumn. I love these colours!
Morag has been busy knitting for her new great grandson. She has been trying to use up some of her stash with these three makes. This wee boy will be well turned out!
Kat has completed a second star blanket. in this one she has reversed the order of the colours. It is stunning!
Lyn has been working on this beautiful blanket using King Cole Melody DK. The colours are amazing!
Janice has knitted another Twiddle Muff. We took some along to the quilting group and kicked up a storm of interest. Everyone who handles one is taken by tactile nature of the muff. Maybe we should do one for ourselves and set aside for later. Just saying.
Stephanie prefers to knit than sew. This week she completed a little hooded jacket and hat for her box. This looks so cozy.
Elaine has asked that all deposits for Gartmore 2016 should be paid soon.
The charity makes that we are supporting just now are;-
Injection driver bags for the Beatson.
Knitted or crocheted Twiddle Muffs for dementia sufferers.
Yorkhill has asked for little cardigans, bigger sized hats for older children undergoing treatment and woolly blankets for these children because they feel the cold as a result of their treatment.
Now is the time to begin gathering up for The Shoe Box Charity. We support this each year and Linda will remind us of what can be included shortly.
We have a large group with very different talents. Just do what you can. It will be appreciated.
