Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl for Auction

An arty shot! Yes, it's another FCS! But this one's in good cause!

Yay! Just like the dear old Queen I am having a Golden Jubilee. Who would have thought that I would have made fifty blog posts since February. It just goes to show that what my teachers always suspected is really true - Joy talks too much!

In true bloggy style there will be a draw and a prize at the end of this month for everyone who has posted a comment during during September.

In the meantime, it appears that I am going into the mass production of Forest Canopy Shawls! In all seriousness, I have made this for a very special reason. My cyberfriend terri is running in the Great North Run on Sunday September 30th to fundrise for the Toby Henderson Trust and this is my final auction to help her fundraising efforts.

So this is it - another Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl - my favoutite so far - and if you would like it, it's yours! All you have to do is pop over to the Crafty Threads 'n' Yarns Forum or, if you would prefer, you can make bid here on my blog and I will put it on for you.

I will up-date daily on this page as to bidding progress. And the auction will end on Sunday September 30th at 7:30pm GMT.

Good luck terri!
