Woolly Sheep 

Meet LouBaalia*! Louby for short. 

She’s our donation to Yarndale 2016’s community project. All the sheep will be displayed at Yarndale in Skipton on the weekend of 25-26th September. The sheep with then be sold to raise money for Martin House Children’s Hospice. Any unsold sheep will be taken to one of the Martin House Charity Shops. 
A small gesture for RAK number 55 but one that is filled with love for those who use the services of Martin House.

A little crochet for 21

   I took up crochet as a hobby not that long ago, inspired by a few friends who were hooking. Since then I’ve managed to make a couple of things but I’m a notoriously slow crocheter. Last year we all made squares for a blanket for a poorly member of our group and we are making another at the moment. It’s taken me a long time to get organised and find the right colour wool but this week I finally did it. So, RAK 21 is a small gesture of a couple of squares I posted today to join the blanket. I will be attempting to make some more soon if I’m in time! I’m sure the recipient will love the blanket – so much thought and love is going into it.
