Just a quick update on the Charity Fundraiser Poppy. All the poppies that myself and my colleague have made over the last 10 days have now sold and we have a raised £75.00 which will be going to our chosen charity Help The Heroes. We have been absolutely amazed at the response and the demand for them. And thank all those who so generously bought them.
One thing we have learnt from this experience is that we need to make an earlier start making then next year instead of staying up to the wee small hours making them and who knows how much we will raise then.
I have never followed a crochet pattern before, give me anything to knit and I'm your women but I feel very proud of myself in the fact that not only did I follow and understand the pattern but they have turned out so well that people have been prepared to give up their hard earned cash to buy one to help such a worthy cause.
Have any of you made any of these either for your own personal use or to sell for charity I would love to hear your stories.
