Return of the Mo'!

If you didn't read Danielle Coolbear's appeal for help over at Lily's Quilts last night, then I ask you to please take a look... it's OK, I'll wait here with the tissues until you come back.

Having possibly the most awesome real name ever, Danielle has asked for moustache blocks to contribute towards equally awesome Can't Grow A Mo', Sew A Mo' quilts for Movember and the Mary Potter Hospice in Wellington, NZ.

The comment I left there pretty much sums up my reason for helping; Prostate cancer will probably affect everyone of us in one way or another at some point in our lives, and doing anything that can either help research into this heartbreaking and prevalent disease, or care for those who are suffering, is a given in my book.

If you are in the UK or prepared to post here, Danielle is collecting blocks to make her quilt; her mother will be doing likewise in New Zealand, so if you are of the Australasian persuasion maybe you can help on that side of the world.

Both quilts, (although I think Danielle may have started something a little bigger than just a couple!) will then be auctioned off, so maybe you want to keep an eye out for those and place a bid.

I immediately pulled some fabrics I thought would do the business; Mama Said Sew scribble writing which looks like tangled 'tache hairs, and the Momo (geddit?) scissors which are a must for keeping everything neat and tidy!




My blocks are standard 12.5", but they can be smaller, or rectangles, whatever takes your fancy.

There is a flickr group and further information on Danielle's blog, so please have a think, and even if you can only manage a little pencil moustache, it will help!

And so, with this reality check, and bit of perspective, I think my mojo has returned xxx

  9. Well... As it happens I know the Mary potter hospice well. That's the hospice my Grandfather was in when he was in his final battle of lung cancer. Will make the relevant enquiries when I get back from holiday
