Did'nt we do well!

Just a quick update on how my little dears Easter Party went. The tombola disappeared within 30 minutes, the cake stall took a little longer, but it had a bit of help from me! The Hook a Duck went down a treat with the kids, but poor Leanne who ran it got slightly wet and her nerves are tattered! The peg dolls, chocolate mold kits and sun catcher kits went really well all sold except one of the Robin Hood sets. I was really pleased with the Easter Egg treasure hunt, each child had to collect 4 egg shapes with their name on it out of 6 boxes scattered around the room and then take them to their teacher who then presented them with an Easter egg, kindly donated by my dad's company (thanks Dad). In all we managed to raise just short of £350 for the pre-school & a further £30 for Sport relief. Well chuffed, and the 3 teachers were really pleased as they did not have to lift a finger!

Forgot to take my camera! Sorry

Just had another thought if you leave me a comment, I will enter your name into my little dears Easter bonnet for the chance of winning the last Robin Hood peg doll and another little treat that I will make over the weekend. Please leave your comments by Monday Evening and I will do the draw then. This is a once in a life time opportunity as I may never make peg dolls again.

Have a good weekend!

Thats a really good amount to raise, you must be chuffed, your comment about never making another peg doll again made me laugh though - As they sold so well, you do know they will be asking you to make them again next year don't you!!!
Thanks again for the pinnies, and the lavendar/button hearts - they are all really lovely - Nat x

Hi Vanessa, thanks for stopping by my blog. I see you make some beautiful things too, your stall in your banner looks very inviting! Even though I've left a comment, please don't enter me in the draw. Not that I wouldn't love to win but I have won more than my fair share of giveaways lately and would rather give everyone else a better chance.
best wishes,
