Phew!

What a month its been! Well we had fabulous sunshine for the day, and the scarf went up the hill, no problems, there was even enough left over to carry on up to the trig point at the top of Titterstone Clee!

Now the scarf is on show in Ludlow Library, until early January 2013.

Blankets made from the squares will be available in 2013, and you can also buy a strip of the scarf,”own a peice of history” for just £1 per square, all money to charity.

So here;s some pics for you! (on the next page!)

thanks for supporting the project, and thanks to all the fabulous people who helped on the day and all those who helped to make it happen!

Tomorrows the day!!!

Hello! well it’s nearly time for bed, just collecting together the things I need for tomorrow, needles and thread to sew the 8 sections together. check list checked, panics panicked and details detailed!

So we should be all ready.  Just waiting for the rain to stop, which I’m sure it will, and then it’ll be the day! One of the biggest days of my life. A dream becoming reality.

In the Shropshire Star and South Shropshire Journal tonight, and rumoured to be on Radio Shropshire’s breakfast show in the morning! It’s been a fabulously busy week.

It will work, and this time tomorrow, it will have happened and I’ll have watched the first episode of the new series of Merlin, and will be relaxing with a cup of tea and erm, some crochet! So many other projects have waited patiently for this to be done.  Blankets, dolls and random woolly creations, all starting to peep out of their bags and boxes, and whisper “chain 4, and slip stitch……”

See you there tomorrow if you can make it!

Love from Suzanne

It’s Time!!!

this weekend Saturday 6th October to be exact, the scarf is going up the Hill!

All 1749 squares have been gathered in and sewn together, and all are ready in 8 wondrously woolly rolls to be taken up the hill, where they will be joined as one. and there’s enough left over to make a bobble hat for the trig point too!

Meet at St Peters Church, Clee Hill (A4117 Ludlow road) at Midday to have cuppa while we sort out the logistics!

Many thanks to all the fabulous women who knitted, crocheted and sewed together the squares!

So very nearly almost there!
