Here we go again - another year and we are now over 1600 members here at Loving Hands! Brilliant! There is going to be an article about my own experiences and Loving Hands in Yours magazine on the 25th January so hopefully that will trigger even more members to join us!
We now have groups in Kelty, Carrickfergus, Stonehaven, Portsmouth, Glasgow West, Cardiff, Peebles and Warwickshire! Who knows - this might be the year we get a group near you!
Sadly my last surgery failed as well. I went in and had the balloons fitted in october, they waited 3 weeks before they began filling them and did it ever so slowly but my stupid body wouldnt play ball and I got anothe rinfection and two of the balloons decided to burst through the skin again. Result was I ended up back in hospital having the balloons taken out again anSd IV antibiotics to clear up the infection. Never mind - once all these new wounds have healed we will hopefully try again - maybe third time lucky!
We are all looking forward to the new challenges being posted on Loving Hands forum on 30th January. Wonder what I will have in mind for everyone this time ;0)
Scotland's Knitting Only Show will be on May 14th from 10am to 4pm at Perth Racecourse again. This year we are trying to make it very much a Loving Hands get together. A lot of the ladies are planning to book into the Travel Lodge at Perth or the Huntingtower Lodges just along from there. We Iill arrange a block booking for dinner at the Glover Arms on Friday and Saturday nights so everyone can have some fun together as well. Looking forward to it already - I am planning to have nice new Loving Hands badges made before hand so we can all wear them to identify one another much easier ;0)
If you want to join us go to the Loving Hands website at www.charityknitters.org.uk and then click on the forum link at top of the page - if you register on the forum dont forget to send me an email to email@example.com giving me all of your details, full name, postal address and the name you have chosen to register on the forum with. Sadly I am having to pre approve members before they can fully join the forum now as we have been hit by really nasty spammers - not the sort of thing we need to see on a hand crafting forum I can tell you! I have to protect my lovely members from that sort of thing ;0)
Looking forward to welcoming you on board soon xxx
