So. Normally I try to keep this blog pretty much solely about my artwork and related issues, but occasionally, there must be exceptions... A bunch of us from the school where I work are running or walking the Race for Life to raise money for Cancer Research UK. I have created a fundraising page in order to, well, raise funds! It goes without saying this is a worthy cause, and I would be very grateful to anyone who felt compelled to give, even if only a few pounds.

However, to further (perhaps) provide an incentive, I have decided to have a little giveaway to go with the fundraising. This top (above), which isn't quite finished yet, is one of the tops I'm supposed to be making for my Stay at Home Robin. I am going to finish it (obviously) and offer it as a prize, to someone who has donated to my fundraising efforts - it will work kind of like a raffle. Virtual raffle tickets will cost £5; for each £5 you donate, you will get one chance in the draw for this little quilt (it's 16"x18"). Although I may add some applique to it and will of course quilt and bind it, it will not get any bigger in size. I promise to have it finished and sent to the winner by the end of July (the Race for Life date is 26th June).

Right. So that's enough of that - back to our regularly scheduled programming!
