Hi Sara,

What sweet little flowers! What a great idea to use up old odds and ends of yarn.

I work at Significant Seams, a social enterprise that aims to support the vulnerable and disadvantaged through textile craft(http://significantseams.org.uk), where we've found a similar way to use up our odds and ends; we're asking people to create knitted and crocheted flowers which will become a "Yarnscape" of spring flowers adorning a soft sculpture Wishing Well we are making as an art installation and fundraising initiative: http://significantseams.wordpress.com/2013/01/24/make-a-wish/

The Wishing Well and Yarnscape will take pride of place in our new premises (the refurbishment and upkeep of which the funds are being raised for).

We were wondering if you would be able to recruit more knitters and crocheters to the Yarnscape cause by giving us a "shout out" in your Inside Crochet column? I realise this is a big ask, but nothing ventured, nothing gained! The founder of Significant Seams is a keen crocheter and a big fan of Inside Crochet and your blog, so couldn't resist the ask!

Hi Kate,
What a fantastic project you have up there in Walthamstow - more communities would benefit from your expertise I am sure! I would be only too happy to support your Wishing Well campaign and will be spreading the word wherever possible - we all have stash bits and bobs that can be transformed into floral delights!!!
Good luck, Sara
