July’s Raffle for #amigurumicharityrun – WIN Captain America and Two Other Amazing Prizes!

Sorry we are late with July’s Raffle as it was the last thing we wanted to do, especially given we were late last month. As you might be aware July has been a really tough month as D had an injury when running which has kept him from running now for several weeks. He never truly realised till now how pain and lack of sleep can make you feel and this has meant he has been feeling ill every day. To cut a long story short this is why this raffle is late, especially as his health has affected mine as he is my full time carer so sadly anything that happens to him can have a huge impact on me too. We are both sorry it’s taken us longer than usual to get this raffle to you but hopefully this will be the last time they run this late again. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Now let’s get this raffle started! Continue reading

July’s Amigurumi Character for #amigurumicharityrun

I am really sorry I am late in introducing July’s Amigurumi Character with you all, as I usually like to share this with you within the first week. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing him via social media though and watching his daily adventures!

For those of you that voted in the poll and/or who follow the daily adventures over on social media you’ll know who this month’s character is but in case you don’t it’s Captain America! Continue reading

POLL: Which Amigurumi Character Would You Like To See For August’s #amigurumicharityrun Challenge?

Hello All,

Guess what time it is? it’s time to vote for the next Amigurumi character for August. It always seems to come around so quick although to be honest I should have got this up like a week ago but it’s here now and we can’t wait to see what you choose :-). Continue reading

Just thought I’d say a quick hello (update)

Hi there,

It’s been a while since I have done an update and I have been meaning to do one for a while so here I am. This will just be a short post today as I’m not having a good day and I still need to get another post up (the poll for August’s Amigurumi character) so I need to make sure I have enough energy left.

I’ll start with some happy news I received a few weeks ago, I got an email from the founder of Feedspot to tell me that my blog had been selected by their panelist as one of the top 5o Amigurumi blogs on the web. This was a lovely surprise and of course I had to check out the link they gave me to check it out. It was lovely to see a lot of other designers and bloggers that I love part of it as well and to think I was part of it as well, well that made my day. They gave me a badge to display on my website so I have added it to my sidebar, so do check it out if you like 🙂 and if you click on the badge it takes you to The Top 50 Amigurumi Blogs where I am sure you’ll find many you want to follow as I know I do!

June Raffle for #amigurumicharityrun – WIN Thor and his friend The Hulk!

We are really sorry that June’s Raffle is so late and we cannot apologise enough about this. As you might know my wife has been getting even worse with her health and I have had to have some time off as well due to injury and illness so overall it’s been a hard month. Anyway the Raffle is finally ready and all we can do is say sorry for the delay and that we’ll be working hard to make sure it’s never this late again! Continue reading

POLL: Which Amigurumi character would you like to see for June’s #amigurumicharityrun Challenge?

Hello Again 🙂

Firstly I know my blog needs a really good update and some catch up posts and I wish I’d been able to do them before this one, but time (or my health) hasn’t been on my side and I really need to look at starting the next character soon as last time it was way too close for my liking (i.e I wasn’t even able to have the character ready for the first day of the run). From now on I hope to run next month’s p0ll two weeks into each month as this way I have more time, if I am extra organised I might even do it earlier than this.

POLL: Which Amigurumi Character Would You Like To See For May’s #amigurumicharityrun Challenge?

Hi there,

It’s time again to choose the next Amigurumi Character for next month, in fact I am a bit later in doing this than I planned as my health has been even worse these past few weeks. So for this reason I am afraid we’ll have to run this poll for slightly less time than usual so I have enough time to create the winning character. I can’t believe how quickly this month is flying by, in my case I am loosing it to sleep most of the time.
