A year has gone by (on 4th April,2014) so I am no longer taking orders for cushions.
Amazingly, 91 were requested and I’m still finishing off the last few, and a lotto be auctioned or raffled until after this date so there will be updates for a while.
What WAS the 60 Cushions Challenge?
April 2013, I was 60 and felt I needed to do something to mark it, but what?
Inspired by a BBC Radio Solent listener who said doing something for charity doesn’t have to be about running marathons (phew) or giving time when your day is fairly erratic – you can make things!
So I thought I’d have a go at making 60 cushions for 60 charities. I didn’t think anyone would be that interested in applying for a cushion, and hoped to make about £1,000. It seemed a bonkers idea!
I’ve delivered cushions to people who work so hard as volunteers. Some have made astonishing amounts of money, but every penny, no matter how (relatively) little, or how much is precious.
Thank you to all you amazing people who care for others and do so much.
Oh – and I haven’t just made cushions….this is the wedding dress I made for my daughter…
And this is the detail from the front of the wedding dress I made for my Daughter-in-Law…..
