Day 4 - crafty auction for Sands

Good morning crafters. We are nearing the end of my auction, and I wish to thank everyone again for their kind messages and donations. I apologise if I haven't replied to everyone - work has been so busy, so I haven't had a great deal of spare time. Today I'm off doing my first workshop in sometime, with the fabulous Phill Martin. Very excited. I will try and keep tabs on the messages and emails, and keep everyone updated.

Please do not feel large bids are necessary. Every penny counts and is gratefully received.

The auction will run until 8pm this evening, and the winning bid will be matched by me. I will frame the art work, making sure we pick a suitable colour to match the winners colour scheme.

I will open a Just Giving page as well, so we can pay the money in there and see how much we have all raised. I am touched you value my artwork, but it is really the memory of Jacob and the knowledge the money raised is being donated to such a deserving charity that makes me happy.

The work I would like to auction today is this stamped project:


I loved this piece, and the verse is quite poignant. Sometimes in life we have to reflect, and hold dear, to the joy and happiness we have had on a certain life journey - as the outcome may fall gravely short of how we imagined or desired. 

Good luck everyone, and please share xxx

Hi Leonie I've been out of it for a couple of days since my chemo but bounced back again as usual. I'm glad to see the auctions have been doing so well. I can raise the bidding to £40.

I thought I'd left a comment but it disappeared if I did! I'd like to raise the bid to £50 after a small win on the football this weekend. Lovely colour in this project and a good cause. Xx
