August Raffle for #amigurumicharityrun – WIN R2D2

Cross posted from my husband’s blog.

We are sorry this raffle is a little late but this time it was on purpose. We were aware that as the last raffle was late it wasn’t that long since it ended, if we did the usual start of the last week of the month. We also felt it was nice for you to see more daily photos of R2D2 before we started the raffle, because as you all know I am still recovering from a severe ankle injury and it meant the start of the month I wasn’t able to daily but as the month went on I was able to manage daily, and then back to the minimum 5K a day. I hope you have enjoyed seeing the daily photos again and it’s been great being able to run again so I can share them with you. So we hope you’ll forgive the reasons we are late but this is the last time we plan to do this as we want to get back on schedule. Thanks again for all your support ūüôā and now let’s get this raffle started. Continue reading

Pattern Testing Bubbles the Baby Giraffe for Melissa’s Crochet Patterns

Hello All,

I am sorry this post is a little later than I hoped but life has been pretty difficult lately, anyway I am not here to talk about that so let’s talk pattern testing :-). I was asked by Melissa’s Crochet Patterns if I would like to test her new pattern called Bubbles The Baby Giraffe and I jumped at it as it was an adorable pattern that I knew would look amazing in¬†cotton. This is my first time pattern testing for her and I was excited!

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

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

I am sorry I went quiet again – I got the flu!

Hello there,

I just wanted to do a quick post to give you all an update, as you may have noticed my blog has become quiet again and not had the posts you might have expected (and I promised). Unfortunately back in February I caught the Flu and this really hit me badly and I am only finally now recovered, although sadly it has had a knock on affect of my usual health so that is frustrating. Anyway…
