Auction prep.

Armed with my 3.5mm hook, a rainbow of wool generously discounted by Andy at Purl's Palace (who are having a massive closing down sale right now) and the most gorgeous cushion pattern donated by Michelle @ TheRoyalSisters (thanks so much Michelle), I am about to get started on my item to be auctioned for the Queensland Flood Relief.

The auction for my cushion cover will kick off next Monday morning.

My auction will be part of a long list of blogger auctions and raffles that will go up on Toni's blog next Monday.

To all those affected by floods or fires, we are thinking of you and wishing you safety, dryness and relief from it all.

Gosh, let's hope I remember how to crochet.


  1. Oh, I can see some scrummy rainbow goodness ahead! Look forward to seeing what it becomes...if you remember how to crochet, that is ;)

  2. Loving the colours - looking forward to the auction too.

  3. Closing down, what do you mean, closing down. Purl's Palace can't close, OMGosh guess I've got a trip to Daylesford now....sigh, I love Purl's Palace..

    I've been really worried as my best mate emigrated to 5 years ago. I emailed her again last night to let me know they're all ok. Thankfully not as bad as it could be where they are.
