Greetings cards to Connecticut and 200 crocheted flowers!

Custom flower order 
As mentioned in yesterday's Kelley McRae post, I am celebrating - and my fingers are slowly ceasing to ache! - after having completed a custom order for just over 200 little crocheted flowers this week. They were fun to make though and hopefully will be on their way to London shortly. My buyer sent all the different yarns that she wanted me to use and I particularly liked working with the pale pink one which was dyed with many colours to produce a beautiful textured effect. I have listed other crochet flowers and motifs in my Etsy shop.

I've also posted two of my handmade greetings cards to Connecticut, USA this week. Debby who lives there was the winner of my weekly Wednesday Literary Flits giveaway and you can see the cards she chose at the end of this paragraph. This week's giveaway is for a paperback copy of a short stories book called Refugee Tales. The stories are written by authors including Ali Smith, Marina Lewycka and Patience Agbabi and you can enter the giveaway through this link. It's open worldwide and your last chance to enter is midnight (UK time) tomorrow (26th Oct).

In other news, I finally got around to having my hair cut this week! It's not been cut since Westham back in July, but Imogen at e-Hair just down the road did a fantastic job and I'm very happy with my 'new hair'.

And I will finish with a big congratulations to Steve Royston who not only managed a whole night sleeping out in a cardboard box on Hastings seafront for this year's The Big Sleep, but also raised a fantastic £1500 for homelessness charity Seaview. Well done Steve!
