Hello friends

A little while ago Belinda, a regular blog follower got in touch and 
offered to crochet a blanket to be donated to Ronald McDonald House.
When it arrived I was blown away - it is gorgeous! 
It measures approximately 70cm x 100cm and is an array of harmonising colours.
I'm sure you will agree how nice it is so I thought how about a raffle to 
own this piece of loveliness?
Much like previous raffles - please click to purchase through PayPal and I will email
through images of your tickets.
You can buy individual tickets at £1 each or 6 tickets for £5.

Ticket £1 each

Tickets £5 for 6

This way the proceeds can be split between the two charities - Royal Marsden
and Ronald McDonald House.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
We received an update last week from Ronald McDonald House that so far we
have enabled 53 nights of accommodation for families.

Other items:
Linda has kindly sent a photo of her finished April Charity Kit.
Just by placing the flowers at the top of the heart gives it a completely different look -
it is lovely, thank you Linda.

Because this kit featuring the wooden heart was so popular I've chosen to go along
similar lines with June's Kit - all will be revealed soon!

Stop by tomorrow for a special Bank Holiday website offer or if you are a 
Newsletter subscriber - please check your inbox!

Take care friends.

Hi Christine. Wow, Belindas blanket is gorgeous, what a clever and generous lady : ) Lindas heart is beautiful , it's so interesting to see how everyone has their own way of decorating them isn't it.
You must all feel very proud that you have helped so many people with a room at R M House : ) Have a great day. I am off to check my inbox now:) Take care.

Good morning Christine,
Wow Belinda your blanket is stunning, such beautiful colours, you are very talented!
Linda your heart is so pretty, it's amazing how you get such a range of results when you give different people the same ingredients!
53 nights is an amazing achievement , congratulations to both of you, it will make such a huge difference, I have been in the position of needing to stay with a child in hospital and there wasn't this kind of service, it would make a huge difference to how you cope with a poorly child! Well done once again, Elliott you are a star!
I hope the sun is shining. Wherever you are,
Sandra xxxx
