We had another fabulous trip to Yarndale at Skipton the last weekend of September, about a dozen of Loving Hands membersmet and had lunch there on the Saturday then spent the afternoon ooing and ahing and squishing wonderful yarn, This show is just such a brilliant showcase for all sorts of yarny things and well worth a visit. we are definitely planning to go again next year!

This year Julia and John once again set off from Shetland bringing a van packed to the roof with all sorts of items for Operation Orphan, as well as warm coats etc for children they also brough desks, chairs, storage boxes and school supples for the village in Sierra Leone where Julia had visited with OO earlier this year.
They called in here on the Saturday afternoon, along with my 'right hand person' Helen and her hubby John from Shropshire. We spent a lovely afternoon chattering, as well as a meal out in the evening, Next morning there was time for a quick cuppa here before they all headed home.
My hubby and I had spent two days in the previous weeks collecting at various places in Lancashire, Cheshire and Northamptonshire for OO (Operation Orphan) so hopefully there will be plenty of warm clothing heading out to Moldova again for the coming winter.
Here we are Helen (left) me (centre) and Julia (right)

We decided to ring the changes this time and instead of setting a few challenges we challenge the members to chose one charity from our list and make things that they need - most seem to have their favourite charity that they like to support :0)

Our new winter challenges were launched at the start of December, they are not obligatory just a few ideas if people need them!
The Sun on Sunday appeal has been fantastic, over 500 blankets have arrived at Operation Orphan and they are still coming in!
