I’m Wendy Carr from Windy Pike in Malhamdale. During lockdown I’ve been lucky to be able to walk regularly from home and cycle with Gordon. The garden has received far more attention than normal and I have continued to cater for us and two sons living at home. When I do sit down for the late evening news I’ve been crocheting premature
baby hats and pairs of hearts for Airedale hospital. The ladies of Malhamdale have
knitted and crocheted these hearts for the nurses in ICU to be able to comfort families whose relatives sadly have passed away without family members being with them. One heart is given to the loved one and the duplicate is given to the family. I’ve also crocheted a couple of dish cloths to go into the Yarndale exhibition if the event is able to take place in September. And granddaughter Isabel’s doll has received a new hat and scarf!
My 87 year-old husband Gordon, as well as cycling and enjoying jig-saws, volunteered to exploit his retirement hobby and has hand-carved house signs for anyone interested in the community. So far, in various fonts and sizes he has pleased fifteen different families, and now has
only two more signs pending.
 

This patchwork bedcover made from reused fabrics from my past (the 80’s!) has filled in this time at home during ‘lockdown’! Great feeling to have finally done it!
