Crochet a rainbow
I signed up to Crochet a Rainbow following the devastating floods in Queensland. Sarah London decided it would be a great idea to collect crochet granny squares, which will be made into blankets, for donation to those that have lost everything. It is important to remember that there is always a rainbow after the storm.
It is hard to believe that since the Queensland floods, the state faced Cyclone Yasi. My current home state Victoria has also been affected by flooding.
Wendy, Liz and I have made 35 crochet granny squares which are ready to be posted. The latest count shows that there are 398 people participating in Crochet a Rainbow from all over the world. You can see some of the other squares here if you are interested.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Wendy and Liz for helping me create for such a worthy cause. I feel connected to the people of Queensland as I grew up there and I am warmed at the thought that a little of our time will bring a smile to a Queenslander's face. Thanks also to Sarah for organising this wonderful project!
Happy crocheting! Ames xo
