First blanket


Well can you see your square here? Kerrie and I spent ages sewing them together on Saturday and this is the result so far. I'm hopeless with a crochet hook so Kerrie very stoically offered to crochet a border for me. Bet you're regretting that rash promise now eh?!
It's going to be backed and bordered and will then be raffled off for some lucky person to win. Would you like it? I know I would. Tickets are priced at a mere £1 or $2US - send cash or Cheque (payable to Emma Magnago Prime) or Paypal via Emma's blog . All money will go towards Oliver's new wheel chair. Whoever wins this fabulous blanket won't even have to pay postage. I will pay that for you, so for just £1 you could be nice and warm this Christmas....
We still need more squares! Just because this blanket is finished doesn't mean that the dead line is over. You have 3 weeks left! We need more! The hope is to make another blanket to raffle in the New Year - all tickets will remain in the hat until such time as there are no more prizes left. And on the subject of prizes, I'll be delving into the Stash Basket to offer something else up. Anyone else out there feel like donating a raffle prize? Not that I want to pressurise any of you, I hate scrounging, but it is all for a good cause.

Thank you so much for working so hard sewing together all those squares. I really do wish I was close enough to come and sew up with you.
It looks lovely.

I'm sure that I can find a raffle prize for you as well. Will have a rummage in the shop today. x

Sorry - missed this post earlier today so just commenting now; I happen to have a nice sock weight skein from Dancing Leaf Farm that would love to represent Maryland. Will send it soon!
