Wood you believe it....?

....I've posted another parcel!

Another fun project found on the wonderful web!

This wiggly woody wonder is making its way to Sheffield University

All the details can be found here.

This started as a short foundation chain...

...I hooked 1htr in the first stitch, 2 htrs in the second, round....

...and round....

...and round until the variegated wool ran out!

I think there's about 25g wiggling around!

Looking forward to seeing other forest features and the whole hyperbolic happening!

Daisy Daisy

I love the way one thing on the internet blossoms into another....
I recently spotted a request for daisies to help two world record attempts to raise funds for Brain Tumour Research.....all the details including the pattern are here.
Ali at crazydazy was quickly hooking too and you can see her daisies and more information here.
I have just bundled these blooms into an envelope to add to the total.

The pattern is blooming quick and I love the rhythm of the pretty petals...

If any of you are around Bath on 4th of June you could join in with the fun....

Teddy Bear Puppet Appeal

Both Linda and Ali have been making teddies for OCC Barton upon Humber.
How could I resist such a cute and worthwhile stashbusting challenge?

I used variegated acrylic and did some hooking in back loops to create some texture in the body.

I also crocheted round the body rather than sewing the two parts together!
I quite like the patchwork effect - and the way that each one of the potential 15534 teddies will be completely unique, just like their recipients!

All the information can be found on Ali and Linda's posts or below!
