The wonderful Liz Fox of BuBakes is hosting a fantastic event this Sunday 7th August at the Essex Cricket Ground in Chelmsford

Alongside the Depressed cake shop she is organising an event where people can come together to learn more about Mental Health and the challenges it can bring.  As well as lots and lots of great cakes there will be ‘Creation Stations’ so that you can get to feel how crafts and creativity can be used to help cope with anxiety and alleviate depression.

Beautiful Things will be there manning an Adult Colouring creation station and a crochet station.  You can pop along and spend time helping us create a fabulous granny square blanket which we will auction off when it’s complete to help raise further funds for Mind and Help for Heroes which are the events chosen charities.

If you can’t make the event, please feel free to make a granny square or 2.  Please start with 2 shades of grey and then add 7 rounds of rainbow colour to create a 9 round square.  These can be dropped in to BTHQ during the next couple of weeks so that we can join them together.  Please use a 4mm hook and DK weight yarn.  If you are coming and want to make a couple to bring with you then please feel free, the more squares the better!

We are also in need of grey yarn to join the blanket together with so if you have any scraps of DK in your stash that you would like to donate we would be very greatful.
