Thank you so much for stopping by today. I was really thrilled with the response to last week's raffle, especially after taking a short break over Christmas. While everything in the world is in chaos, at least we have yarn to enjoy. It definitely improves my mental health both crafting and holding these weekly fundraising raffles, so I plan to continue throughout this third lockdown in the UK. I can post things quite safely as we are fortunate to have a mobile post office van which comes to the village once a week, and I don't even get into the van - the lady comes to collect my post while I'm all masked up.
This week's prize is a real beauty! The prize includes a pretty floral print project bag with coordinating lining and a lampwork glass bead on the zipper pull, made by my friend Michele across the Pond. Her Etsy shop is ThreeBagsFull and definitely worth a visit. There is a skein of the luxurious superwash merino, cashmere and nylon yarn in the colourway Sweet Dreams which has been donated by Ellie from Craft House Magic. Ellie has also donated a pair of Hiya Hiya sharps 2.5mm circular needles. Stevie from the Curated Yarn Co. has donated a skein of her merino nylon yarn in the colourway Mulberry Jam - it looks almost good enough to eat! There is also a ball of Opal sock yarn in shades of pink and purple. Fiona from Scarlet Stitchcraft has donated a set of pretty stitch markers and there is also some tea to enjoy, courtesy of both Stevie and Yorkshire Tea. Thank you so much to everyone for your kind donations.

Hello and Happy New Year to you! I'm hoping that 2021 is going to be a much better year all round! I decided to have a break from my raffles over Christmas, but am back for the start of what I hope will be another amazing year of fundraising. You helped me to reach my target of £10,000 last year so I'm being ambitious and have increased my target to £20,000. I hope that the money that you help me raise will be enough to fund a particular project in its entirety. Fingers crossed!
This week's prize is a riot of colour. The prize includes 6 balls of Stylecraft Special DK yarn, 3 balls of Stylecraft Bellissima DK yarn, 2 balls of Stylecraft Monet yarn, 2 balls of Stylecraft Batik yarn, 1 ball of Stylecraft Head over Heels yarn, a Stylecraft Dreamcatcher yarn cake, a Stylecraft tote bag, key ring and 10 gift tags and a limited edition booklet of crochet patterns. Thank you to Julia Marsh, Elphyn Rose and Stylecraft for the donations.
