Race For Life

I've entered myself for the Race For Life which will be at Coombe Abbey on 9th July 2008.
As i've put on my fundraiser page i've been touched by cancer in my life several times. The first was the loss of my beloved Grandpa when i was 13 to Hodgkins Lymphoma. I lost my Taid (welsh granddad) to prostrate cancer when Alex was 1 and my friend Jane has had bowel cancer. I want to do this to help make it possible for people like my friend Jane to still be here and not be like my grandparents!

I did set a low fundraising target but i seem to of gone past that in my first day so let hope i can get many many more sponsors!!

If you can and would like to please sponsor me via the widget on the side of my blog or you can just let me know what you would like to sponsor me and i'll write it on my paper sponsor sheet. It doesn't matter if you can only afford 50p it all adds up in the end

thank you for sponsoring me
love and hugs

Not blogged for a while i know

but there has been a reason. I've had gangshow rehearsals and then the actual show. That actually went ok which really surprised me to be honest. Mind you i opened this weeks Hinckley Times ,whilst sitting in piggies hollow eating a salad, and was ok will i got to the entertainment pages and nearly spat my ham across my table. There is something rather hideous about seeing myself in print wearing a huge white tent type garment and being hit by a spotlight!!

During the same week as Gangshow i also had 2 nappy open days which were organised by LCC. And what a waste of space they were. The one on the Thursday at Loughborough Town hall was abysmal. No one knew we were in there and the advertisement had been poor to say the least. Brock's Hill was slightly better on the Sunday but not much. At least i managed to finish off a load of quick dry hybrids for Angeltots, which Sarah added to her site yesterday at 2pm and sold out in around 5 or 6 hours. Makes me realise just how much people want my nappies!!!

This past week has been fab. We went over to Sarahs on Monday for a get together which i really enjoyed. Miffy made some delicious cakes which i really shouldn't of eaten but i did lol.

On the knitting front i picked up this last wed

i tried to have a play with some fibre yesterday but need to practice my treadling a bit more first before i have another go. Once i've got it then i'll see if i can get Sarah to dye me some fibres specially for me.

Talking of Sarah . How much of a star is she. She has been dying yarn this week and has made a new colour way.

and this is the blurb she has put with it which i have to admit bought a tear to my eye.

" This colourway was inspired by one of my best friends :) The depth of colour represents her generous nature and her love of purple. Its called "LottieRu"

on that note i'm going to sign off and knit more of G's cardi which looks like this but in variegated pink (of course it has to be pink!)
