In case you somehow missed it, I am going to the Philippines in August (read all about it here). Not for a holiday, but to help with things in the aftermath of the typhoon. And as part of that, I’m raising pennies to help those that really need it over there. And as part of that I have a stall at a village fair on Monday.
Those of you that have read this for a while know I used to do that a lot when I had my little company of makingness. This is the first one for a while though, and the intention is to sell off the very last bits of stock and some things I’ve been making and give all the pennies to the charity.
In usual Pog style, the recent makingness hasn’t been terribly sensible. I have the owl keyrings I mentioned on my last post. And you know those cards I made for Mum and Little Pea, where I said I wouldn’t be going into production any time soon doe to the fact that I really can’t draw? Well, um, I have:

If you could all do a sundance for me that would be lovely, but rain or shine, this bank holiday Monday I will be at a real country bumpkinsville fair raising pennies and hopefully a few smiles. :o)
