I'm fundraising for the Henshaws Hundreds

I want to fundraise Henshaws for the support they have given me. 

My challenge is to crochet 100 linear inches around the edge of a blanket every day for 10 days.  Please sponsor me for a suggested 1p per inch.

Thank you in advance.


My Updates

The Completed Work

Sunday 11th Oct
Here is the full blanket, completed at last

Wednesday 30th Sep
Here we are at day 10 the last day of my challenge and I have completed the picture I had in my mind.  So imaginations at the ready_  I floated down through the rainbow zoomed around a clear blue sky popped over the horizon and sailed over a turquoise sea the surf carried me to a golden beach fringed by a tropical Forest.  All this encouraged by the sponsorship of my lovely family and friends including those who were new to me and the anonymous donations.  
Thank you all.  
This is not the end of this piece of work I shall continue with the pattern in reverse then it will form the centre panel for another bed throw which will be the fifth I have made while I have been housebound with the lockdown. 
Love to you all 
Cheers Barbara
