As you may be aware – Marie Curie provides nursing care to people with terminal illnesses across the UK, as well as support for family and friends.
Sarah’s slightly bonkers idea – which as it turns out, is a cracking idea, is to raise as much money as possible via The Flower Power Fund. Every month a talented indie yarn dyer will create a colourway based on a different flower each month. There will be lots of surprises along the way, so pop over and follow Sarah and join the mailing list so you’re the first to hear all the news.
The flower for January was a snowdrop – that beautiful, delicate but tough little flower that makes us smile when we catch the first glimpse. Tracy from @norahgeorgeyarns created the yarn for January and it is beautiful. If you were lucky enough to be able to buy one, then you’ll know how scrummy it is.
I was thrilled to be able to offer a snowdrop design knitting project bag as one of the prizes for January.
I am also currently selling a Lady’s Smock (Cuckoo flower) design project bag in my Etsy store for the next week only with £10 from every bag sold being donated to Marie Curie.
The lovely Beth of Beehive Yarns dyed up a beautiful Cuckoo flower yarn for the Flower Power Fund – the inspiration behind the bag.
The Cuckoo Flower is said to herald the beginning of spring alongside the sound of the first cuckoo – although spring feels a long way away at the moment here in the UK as many of us are under a pretty, but freezing blanket of snow. So if you would like to support a wonderful cause and have a sweet little hand embroidered bag for your knitting and crochet projects, here is a link to my Etsy store.
