Didn't make it last week. 😕 How it goes. Only just made it this.
Sorry Julia if my post is not in true spirit of WOYWW this week.
I finished the cards I featured last time, the ladies loved their Strawberry ones.
Like many I was so shocked to hear about the death of the Queen, I was more upset than I ever imagined I would be. Like many she was such a constant in my life and somehow I thought she would be there forever. Her death also made me think of recent losses.
I watched the television avidly on Monday ( lots at other times) .
I held a class last Saturday. I did tell the ladies I was happy to postpone but they all wanted to carry on.
I had chosen to use a kit from SU. Part of the cost was donated, by SU to Food Scarcity charities.
I also put out some of my stash, no longer needed and asked people to take what they wanted, and if able to, make a small donation to Action For Medical Research. Our eldest Matthew had taken part in an event to raise funds for the charity. He cycled 40 miles, canoed 2 miles on Derwent Water and then hiked up Skiddaw. It all had to be completed between dawn to Dusk. He and his team were successful and raised £4000.
The research is all for babies children and young people.
The ladies were very generous and donated £101 in total.
Matthew's reward - he tested positive for covid the day afterwards!
After crafting we had lunch. In memory of the Queen we had coronation chicken, some jam sandwiches, cake and biscuits that the Queen liked. We also drank a toast to Her and the New King. There were crowns and horses on the cakes.
Everyone said that it was lovely to be together and talk about the Queen and memories we have.
So no desk, I'm sorry. I hope the photos are OK to share here.
