Crochetathon #daisiesforvicky

Yesterday was such a fantastic day! Lisa and I arrived at Hobbycraft Warrington just before the store opened to set the table up for the #daisiesforvicky crochetathon!

I had the fun job of joining all the squares as everyone else was adding to the daisy pile (that’s not me being sarcastic, I love joining!!) I almost managed to join one blanket between 9 and 6 so I still have quite a bit to do! Lisa is going to be adding the borders so once I’ve joined the squares that’s my job done 🙂

We had a lot of people stop by to see us, I especially loved meeting some of Vickys family and two people from the charity we were fundraising for (Victim Support). They sat with us for a while which was lovely! They also added to our chocolate stash which was so kind. It was such a fun positive day and we all had such a laugh, both Lisa and I are so grateful for everyone that has donated or sent us squares, for the ladies that came on the day and the staff at Hobbycraft Warrington for allowing us to be there the whole day. We had several people thank us for organising the event which felt a bit weird as we spent a whole day doing something we love! I can guarantee we will be doing another!

Whilst we were all sat around the table with out daisies Lisas gorgeous daughter Abby was wandering around the store collecting more donations, she did such a fantastic job. She also posed with the blanket for us as myself and Lisa really hate having our photos taken lol.

We still don’t have a full daisy count as I know there are still some on the way, once all of the blankets are done I’ll post again with pics, the final daisy amount and how much we have raised.

Thanks for stopping by

#daisiesforvicky

ds

On Saturday 21st October myself and Lisa from The Wee House of Crochet are holding a crochetathon at Hobbycraft Warrington to raise money for Victim Support, in memory of Vicky Wynne-Jones.

Victim Support is a charity that supports people affected by crime and traumatic events in many different ways. Hopefully the crochetathon will raise a lot of money for such a worthwhile cause!

At least one big daisy square blanket will be constructed using squares that are crocheted on the day and squares that have been sent through the post from the lovely people who would like to take part but are sadly too far away. Ideally squares will need to be received by Friday 20th October to be used at the crochetathon. However, any squares arriving after this date will still be used.

If you would like to be the proud owner of the #daisiesforvicky blanket all you need to do is donate to Lisas Just Giving page, every £1 donated gives you a chance to win!

If you would like to make some daisy squares you will find the pattern pdf below, it includes all the information you need, including where to post your squares. We are grateful for help from anyone that has tie to take part!

Daisies for Vicky
