Sharing across the miles

A quick news update. some of our blankets and toys along with items made by the ladies of Yarn Alive from Shichigahama were distributed to residents who have suffered either from the trauma of the tsuanami or domestic violence which, post the earthquake, seems to be on the increase in Japan.

For the full story Just look here.

Nice one ladies, it's good to see something we can easily do in some small way helps with the lives of these women

Lovely Lady - Threads through my life - this one is still in progress.

I have toys waiting to go with these blankets, I've just looked outside the window and it is snowing - what better reminder than that to think about needing to be warm x

Thank you ladies xxx
