BCI donations (late posting, was done ages ago!)

Completely forgot to upload this. I'm not good at blogging!  I will attempt to do better in 2018. As I'm prepping the spreadsheet to see how much to send to Breast Cancer International again, I realised I hadn't posted the other donation last year!  So here it is.. This makes a total of £225.59 donated, with Gift Aid, it adds up to £281.99. Thanks to all of you who bought Holmsey Hare  - you are stars, and he is gorgeous!

Shawls are fun to knit (or crochet - I do that too - I'm bi-stitchual!)…

Tiger Experience at Linton Zoo

I know it's nothing to do with cross-stitch, but I've always loved tigers. My husband also loves all big cats and so last Christmas, we bought ourselves a "Tiger Feeding Experience" at Linton Zoo, in Cambridgeshire, UK. We just completed it. I'm still on a high! We arrived at the zoo at midday, and were greeted and asked to fill out a health & safety form (including things like Next of Kin, just in case...) We were met by John and Kim at the coffee shop, and John took us on a tour around the big cat enclosures. He was…
