What a day!

There is really no way to put into words how I am feeling about yesterday, the hugeness of it all hasn’t settled in me yet – it was beyond amazing, pink and beautiful! The skies were blue (a window in a weekend of torrential rain) and everyone just smiled and shone as we rolled out a truly beautiful symbol of our need for Peace, for change, for Love without boundary or border. 

Thank you to everyone who has supported me and Wool Against Weapons – whether you made it there to Aldermaston and Burghfield by hook or by crook, or whether you have knitted a piece of our scarf – I am truly, putting my hand on my heart, and saying “I couldn’t have done it without you”. 

The BBC South news featured us (scroll down for a link to this, its up for another day), and there are many, many pictures rolling in.

There is a great little film here to give you a flavour of the day, made by Action AWE:

There will be more photos, more films and also a speeded up film of the whole 7 miles of scarf to make you smile even more widely, so keep checking in with us. Soon the fantastic and big job of making our scarf into a blanket will begin, and any donations to help us with the transportion of these blankety beauties would be so gratefully received. Donate button on the right!

Big hugs and love to you awesome woolly activists out there…..am in awe of you all!

WE DID IT!!!

Yahoodie amigos….just swinging by quickly, from the Aldermaston Women’s Peace Camp to break the news – we did it – all seven glorious pink miles of rewoolution! Will be back soon, I promise, but until then, here’s a little taster…..

 

One Day left……

Well, we are packed and ready to go……the weather looks like it may be kind (thank you for special prayers and spells, yay!) and so we shall see you at Aldermaston….I will try and post up pics during the day if I can, or swing by Sunday night to tune in to the madness….

this is Jaine Rose, Princess Pink (although not for much longer) saying “OVER AND OUT”…..

2 Days and Counting….

Well this is our final countdown day, as tomorrow we will be off to Aldermaston  

So today’s pinup person is Catrin from Lush in Chester – with massive big hugs to you for your fabulousness – and a great big cheer for Lush Campaigns and all the other Lush shops, for supporting us, arranging knit-ins, storing scarf, and of course for making our scarf pieces smell gorgeous  We love you….

3 Days and Counting….

A big thank you to Rebecca Johnson – she has many hats to wear being part of Action AWE and CND, and other brilliant organisations – for all her hard work with our campaign and being the Milestone Co-ordinator for the big day You rock sister….

4 Days and Counting…..

A countdown wouldn’t be a countdown without CND’s super cute office assistant – Che – seen here fashioning a poster and sombrero. When not answering calls on the switchboard, he is rather natty at filing and cooking a mean vegetarian paella….go Che, go… 

5 Days and Counting…..

These three Drywood boys – Charlie, Seb and Jonah have each been fab in their own ways – they have sold homemade candyfloss and given Wool Against Weapons a donation, I have a homemade pink bracelet that I’m wearing and pom poms (how are they coming along Charlie?) and of course Jonah’s massive donation from everyone when he was born. Rock on little woolly dudes…..

6 Days and Counting……

Our pinup today is Rodda from the Crown and Septre, our very fabulous local (that has just won the Cotswold Community Pub of the Year, bit like the Oscars…) – I have the most brilliant and supportive community here in Stroud – big hugs and cheering to you all xxx
