You may have noticed a couple of new buttons popping up on my side bar recently. I know I'm busy -- really busy but I wanted to do something for Queensland families who have gone through so much lately.
There are quilting block drives and auctions - people are so generous! but I don't want to get myself into a position of over promising, so when I heard Sarah London was calling for granny squares to make into blankets and she was accepting donations for a whole year I knew this was a way I can help. You see, crochet is my chill out craft, the thing I do to still me brain at the end of a full-on day.
I have one problem though - I need more yarn! Can you help? I need 8 ply (double knitting) in wool or acrylic in any colour - just odds and ends are great - granny squares are perfect for using up the last of things (perhaps that's why I love granny squares so much). If you live in Christchurch and can make it to Stitch, 27a Colombo Street they will gladly save up your donations for me. If you can't get there, but have a pile of yarn you want to donation please email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what I can organise.
If you want to make up some granny squares and donate them yourself I know Sarah would be really appreciative - just click on the "Crochet a Rainbow" button on the top left of this page to get all the ins and outs.
