Matt Baker's Rickshaw Challenge

Tonight we have been out and about to support Matt Baker on his rickshaw challenge for Children in Need.

Matt and Pudsey cycled into Hexham at 7pm almost 3 hours late after cycling from Hawick in the borders today.The journey of 484 miles started in Edinburgh yesterday and will finish on Friday in London for the live show of the 2011 Children in Need appeal.Matt said he was late because he kept stopping to chat to his many supporters along the way, and at Hexham's Wentworth stadium he spent ages chatting to everyone , young and old.If you want to support him too Text 'MATT' to 70705 - follow him on line here or just follow him down the road like we did and drop your donation into his bucket.

I have been sewing too, trying out some little stitcheries from Mandy Shaw's book Stitch with Love.
And learning to do Colonial knots for a cushion project from Sandie Lush Pattern.And the latest knitting project to be finished are these chunky mittens which are now packed up and posted to Manchester to Jenny.
And finally the scenic shot is a wildlife shot this week - This magnificent Eagle owl - I wouldn't like to get too close to that beak!!

Happy Quilting xx
