Not long to go till the start of the Ration Challenge for me, I start on Monday 6th June!
After creating a video for making Post-Mastectomy Drain Bags I kinda wanted to do the same for the pacha pads, and this year I was going to make the flying saucer variation of their patterns as apparently it’s generally regarded as more secure, so I had to give the pattern a go first!
It’s coming up to the Ration Challenge time of year, in fact I’m taking part next week! between the 6th June till the 12th of June, the official dates this year are about two weeks later but we decided this week we’d chosen worked better for myself and Charlotte to take part.
So you may have have read my previous entry on taking part in Concern’s Ration Challenge, and if you didn’t, please go give it a read as it explains in more detail on what I’m not really discussing today!
You may, or may not know that last year I took part in Concern’s Ration Challenge with my twin sister Charlotte to help raise money and awareness of the refugee crisis going on in the world.
Why hello there fellow readers. As you may have guessed if you’d come to my blog over the last decade, you would think you were still in 2011!
2011 was a pretty jam packed and busy year and after looking back at 2009 and kinda ignoring 2010 I thought I'd do a small recap for those who don't really want to look through 365 days’ worth of blog entries.
With Bethan's bunny finished I wanted to take on a new crochet project, and I've had what I'm making decided for some time now. My new house can be rather cold at times so I knew I wanted to make a nice warm afghan style throw.
This morning in the post I received a t-shirt I'd totally forgotten about as it was from shirt.woot which can take some time in getting to you.
After moving away from Charlotte I've found myself asking her constantly for recipes that I was used to eating, however now she's given me the most lovely Christmas present meaning I don't have to bug her anymore for all the lovely meals we used to eat.
I hadn't had the chance to write about what I picked up on Christmas eve as I was busy writing other blog posts that were slightly more themed, however I have the time now and I thought I'd just show off what I picked up the day before I visited my family.
Some readers may have noticed a lack of crochet related updates on my blog, well that's firstly because I'd been working on a Christmas present for my niece since my last update and actually that last update was indeed my working on my niece’s present.
Sadly there hasn't been any snow this year, so a picture from the snow and our snowman from last year will have to do for now!
