Welcome to my blog

Hi, I'm Sue .Please see my profile to read more about me and my meanderings !

I hope you enjoy reading my musings, and please feel free to comment.

About Me

My photo
I'm a recently retired Midwife living in rural Nottinghamshire with my husband . I have 2 grown up children (a Daughter and son,) and a grandson. Knitting and crochet have been a passion of mine since childhood - living in the country made other forms of entertainment hard to come by ! Now I find it very relaxing and rewarding, the choice of colours and textures available is just amazing.

Sunflowers for Laura

Those of you who have been following my ramblings on Folksy forums will be aware of my pledge to raise funds and awareness fo Cardiac Risk in the Young.
This is an account, written by a very close friend, of the day his daughter, Laura died. It's beautifully written and still makes me cry when I read it !
To raise awareness of this tragic event, and funds for research, I have been creating various sunflower accessories - sunflowers were Laura's favourite. These are all available to buy in my Folksy shop and a proportion from every sale is donated to this worthy cause. Details of the work done by CRY is available on their website - when you've read Tony's story feel free to browse further.
I hope my next blog post iappears sooner than this one - I WILL attempt a Folksy Friday very soon !
