It is a nice coolish day today so I feel I should be out in the garden tidying it up a little but then I also want to crochet. TOO MANY CHOICES! So instead I thought I would write a 'quick' blog about my crazy week.
The last week has flown by in a poppy frenzy! The Facebook 5000 Poppies NZ group has exploded to 138 members. Which is just fantastic. I did however spend a lot of time on Facebook welcoming everyone to the group...Now I sit and wait for the poppies to start arriving.
Then I managed to get myself into the local paper. Which was surprisingly fun. I was nervous and a bit scared to be doing it at first as it was way out of my comfort zone. I kept telling myself though that it is for a really good cause and the word about what we are doing needed to get out there so more wonderful people could be involved. So a lovely reporter came over and we chatted and took some photos and on Friday last week there I was on the front cover! Unbelievable really.
I was also emailing information to a graphic designer who is making us flyers so we can spread the word even more. RSA's are also now involved. This project has exploded!!
My next step is to sort the venue for displaying our project and organise a little craft afternoon tea where people can come along for a cuppa, cake and poppy making. The latter will be fun as I will be able to meet some of the crafters who have chosen to get involved. OH and eat cake and crochet. Bliss!
My big reveal of what I have made lately is still waiting to be finished but here is a little peak...
Happy crafting everyone,
