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

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!)
