Hello friends

Today I'm announcing the winning number from the December Charity Kit.
The lucky number is......

The prize this month is a special box of dies, papers, embellishments and more!

Please check your kit number and if you are the lucky winner please drop me an email -
I will send your prize out straight away but I'm afraid it will probably  not arrive 
in time for Christmas.  I am doing my best to contact Santa to see if he can 
pop an extra parcel on his sleigh but I keep being put on hold!

More wonderful squares have arrived for the Blanket of Love.  
One all the way from Canada!
A friend of mine who is very nifty with knitting needles and crochet hooks 
has offered to help Mum and I join them all together so we hope to get going on that 
after Christmas - I will keep you posted.  
When I sent out the plea for knitted squares I had no idea how brilliant the response 
would be - we feel very blessed.
Also such a treat to be receiving all your gorgeous cards and messages.
This beauty arrived at the shop....
This is a Carole Zorzo creation - you can see more on her blog here
It is wonderful and contains chocolates!! Heaven!
Thank you so much Carole.

Hope you are having a good weekend and keeping dry and warm,
my garden gate is held closed with a piece of string since the last storm -
I think I can assume it isn't going to last much longer....!

Going to ice my Christmas cake today...yes every element of the Last Minute 
Christmas Cake is...last minute!

Take care friends.

Hi Christine. I am delighted, but not surprised at the love squares arriving. I think you will get a lot more after Christmas too (sorry only on line 4 of my square, I did tell you that I struggle with knitting. Now you know I wasn't joking!) Thank goodness the other lovely ladies (and gentlemen?)knitters make up for me : ) Maybe you could auction off any surplus squares/blankets after you have made the blanket? Congratulations to the lucky no. winner. What a fab prize. Enjoy decorating the cake Christine. Take care.

Morning Christine, I think that you are going to have enough squares for several blankets! I have almost finished 1 and will try to make another but , like Mrs B I am a very slow knitter. I won't be able to post them until 10th January, will that be too late? Congrats to the lucky winner. Take care, love and hugs

Morning Christine,
What a great response you have had for the blanket squares, people are very generous and helpful, I expect you will have enough for more than one blanket.
Enjoy icing the cake.

Hello. What did we say. We'd help - well I have been knitting but a dress for my new granddaughter. When that's finished I could make a square but I have a feeling you have enough already. Enjoy the last few days till Christmas. xxMargaretxx
