Jacquie makes terrific tea cosies. She doesn't use a pattern she knits and knits and creates wonderful things.
Then Jacquie gave us all a gift. She gave us two mice each. Now these mice have a story... Jacquie gave four of her knitted mice to our cafe. We loved them and named them and then, when the cafe closed, we gave them to Jan. Jan is a magnet for creatures. She also has custody of our guinea pigs and some else's rabbit and the four knitted mice. Or at least she DID have the mice until the Duchess of Cornwall visited and rather fell in love with them. So of course, the Duchess was given them and in return she sent a generous donation to a charity chosen by the knitters. But the Duchess had five grandchildren and only had four mice, that is until Jacquie sent Her Royal Highness three more. I guess one each for Their Royal Highnesses too. So Jan lost her family of mice. But the tale ends well as the lovely Jacquie knitted two mice for Jan and two for me. Mine are guardians of the mantlepiece at the hub and are already much admired. They also had a trip to the playground where they were named by Fin and Felicity.

Then in the evening Lottie and I put up the Rate My Doodle display where anyone can create a postcard (supplied by us) and display it to be sold to raise funds. I will add photos of all the postcards to Rate My Doodle website for people to leave comments.

But to put up Sharon's display I had to get up the ladder. It doesn't look high from here but it certainly felt it. If you look up, you find you are a little too close to the ceiling figures who seem friendly from the ground. That lion has big teeth!
