What a difference a chair would make

What Difference a chair would make.

Hi all, i am not the best of writers but i wanted to let you know a little bit more about how the campaign and money raising, would help and change my life.

So in the picture is a picture of the type of chair i would like once the funds have been raised, this chair will be able to be used in my home and also out and about. This chair is also perfect as everything is also customisable so will be built specifically to my needs. This will be measured to my perfect fit and with customisation it also means if i am having a really bad with weakness in my arms then i can have dual controls so my husband will be able to use the gear stick to make the chair move too.

With this chair it would open up so many possibilities to me, things i took for granted before i became disabled.

The main thing would be that i would not have bruises all over my legs from the chair, currently now when i go out in my chair i have even a 10 minute outing leaves the sides of my thighs covered in black and blue bruises.

I would be able to do longer outings such as go to look at shops in the town centre, go on day trips when invited by my parents something i currently have to say no too. I love visiting stately homes, going to places such as Matlock and Bakewell, day trips to the sea side. I would even be able to go out to the local park to feed the squirrels and ducks, be able to take a trip to the library.

The independence it would bring would allow me to be involved with things again, without having to have people being worried to rush if i am in pain, or leaving early because things are too painful for me.

All the little things gathered mean so much to me and would make such a huge impact on my life.

I want to thank everyone that has made a creation for the campaign, has re-blogged it, has made a donation, who has contacted me and you are all amazing and i am making some amazing friends along the way too

Thank you

<3 Hayley

RSPCA blanket and catnip fish toy drop off

Last Monday I dropped of  6 large crochet blankets and a pile of Catnip Fish to my local RSPCA :)

The day was extremely cold, wet and windy hence the face I am pulling.

While there I was actually in tears as there were so many cats there and hardly any of them have toys at all and it really gave me a huge boost to make more and more catnip toys and since then I have made a further 20.

I can not donate money, or food but I feel donating the toys and my time and love to make them would make a tiny difference for the animals while they wait for their forever home :)

Some of you may know the Simmer LoubyLou1985 from the EA forum, where she has a number of Simmies, patterns and Lots available for download.

Amongst LoubyLou’s other activities, she knits for Cats Protection (the Cats Protection League) and the RSPCA – making quilts and catnip bags for our nation’s little purr monsters.

Which undergo the most rigourous testing and quality control.

That she is a primary pusher of the Holy Sacrament of Catnip means her place in paradise at the right hand of Bastet-Pasht is guaranteed for all eternity (Blessed Be Bastet, Blessed Be Her Holy Purr) – but on this plain matters are more difficult.

She’s been wheelchair bound the last three years thanks to her Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder (NEAD) getting worse to the extent her leg muscles have wasted – a mere two years prior…

Starburst inspired Crochet Blanket (Work in progress)

I am a huge fan of The Big Bang Theory and love Amy’s crochet blanket, however I am not a huge fan of the design of it more the colours with the black edging.

So browsing the internet I saw so many different designs of blankets and fell in love with the starburst design.

So I have been busy making the inner parts of the squares as I plan to do something I have never done as join-as-I-go, a scary though but not that scary compared to knitting as I am finding with crochet if you make a mistake so much easier to fix,as long as you notice as you are going of course.

So I have calculated to make one that will be the size of a double bed approx. 408 square will be needed. Sounds a lot I think it is probably too many and my maths is probably completely off!

So here are circle colour combinations I have been working on

cab24d89-11c5-49f3-9a8e-92dcb48275bf[1]

So far I have 20 of each so 240 I plan on just doubling this amount and then get busy joining them all.

I also love the colours and have used Stylecraft Special DK, I can not wait to show you the end result
