We ask for so much, we know, but please just have a look, sharing our FB post from last night.... xx

Great excitement and equal amounts of nervousness here!
Can you help us sustain and develop our projects?

As part of Mumsnet Giving Week, Woolly Hugs been chosen to be one of 5 charitable causes being promoted by MNHQ. They will match fund the money raised.

First though, we need to raise over £1,000 in a week!

Every little could help us achieve this.

We know that times are particularly hard at the moment so if you could help by spreading the word, we would be grateful for that too.

Thank you xxxx

Oooo Frances, I'll admit it wasn't actually my work, but I will find out for you xx

On the piste, I'm admiring your mother's day daffodil. Would you mind telling me how you did it? Are the crocheted petals sewn on or do you crochet them on top, catching them into the round below? Thanks.

Has anyone tried the Cascade wool that Wool Warehouse and Deramores have just started stocking? Wool Warehouse are selling it at such a good price for pure wool and it comes in SO many colours, but I want to know it isn't horrid and scratchy before trying it!

On a completely unrelated and non-woolly related note, but please excuse me, I'm excited, I've just booked my train tickets for my summer holiday to London at the beginning of July. I haven't been to London in over a year, I was starting to feel deprived.

Loving the pictures of Trinity's blanket and also those perfectly lovely amazing crib figures! Am in awe of talented crafty types on Mn [in awe emoticon].

When I went to the post office this afternoon there was NO queue.

Parcel posted. I had completely forgotten it was the last day of the month and every single motorist from my town was taxing their car this may be a slight exaggeration grin I need a lie down to recover.

On Mothers’ Day, we send our love to all families within our Woolly Hugs’ community, but particularly those for whom this will be a day touched with sadness.

Thinking of all our recipient families, and all our donors and crafters who are missing someone they love too.

Sending strength, love and huge hugs. Our thoughts are with you.

Pistey and Knotty X

Wonderful crib figures, woolly, that must have taken an age. I love the colours. Thank you for posting the photo, I'm sure it will help raise more for MIND to do that, especially with specialist/larger items like this.

Wow Woolly, just wow!!

That will have a new home come Christmas. We are so grateful to you. Thank you. Can't waIt to see it in the wool. smile

My parcel of various goodies will be posted on Monday. I have just finished sewing up my nativity and there will be squares and Easter stuff too.

Can I just share my nativity with you?

I have had wine - I don't usually show off blush

I've just read this on Pinterest 10 mins ago and thought of you:

"One day someone is going to hug you so tight that all of your broken pieces will stick back together"

love you
