If you follow me on any social media site you will see that I have been posting lots of pictures about a design I have been making. This design is a cute butterfly brooch pin that I am selling to raise money for Pacreatic Cancer UK. I have been working closely with the charity and I am pleased to be able to try and make a small difference using my skills.
This is the butterfly
you can purchase the butterflies from my website which is here I would like to say a massive thank you to all the people that have purchased so far. We need to raise awareness and funding for this charity.
Some people may ask why am I raising money for this charity in particular? Well it is not only because of the storyline of Hayley from coronation street. It is a more personal one. One of my good friends has this cancer which is terminal and before I met him I wasnt even aware what it meant so raising awareness is a key point. If we can all just help a little and start talking and raising awareness of this cancer then if it just helps one person it would be fantastic.
I am also going to be releasing the pattern for knitters to make and sell their creations or for themselves and dontate to the charity too. As I have had alot of knitters asking if they can make them too and help in some way. Also keep a look out on @peggysyarns on twitter and on the website for specially dyed yarns and stitch markers to raise money Peggys Yarns Website
