Our outside fire - which I am loving - nothing to do with the post...

I am always aiming to support local independent businesses/food growers and products.

But then this happens.

I need a certain product.  I look at my choices.  There are four.

The shops own brand for $2.00.  I look at the ingredients.  All recognisable and safe.  Nothing obscure or sus.

The other three...  only one was Australian owned but imported ingredients $7.00.  Obscure ingredients.  Other two from or owned by overseas companies.  Again $7.00 and obscure ingredients.

I choose the $2 one.  Even though it is owned by a huge money making company - totally against my buying ethics.  ALL ingredients were safe and it was value for money.  How could I justify more than three times the cost plus very obscure product list?

Can you tell it stumped me?  I feel the need to be sensible but I have not even began to scratch the surface on the effects this choice could result in.

What choice would you make?

Just one square?

Sally has initiated making a blanket for the Born to Knit Save the Children's blanket appeal.

Good stuff she is.

So why dont you go to her blog and sign yourself up.  
It is so easy and quick and for a good cause people.  
She has even given us ages to complete a block.

Go on!  Lets see who can make their square first?

You can breath a sigh of relief

I have finished it... It is the most wonky of wonky projects I have done.  Machined stitched the binding because lack of (cough cough) patience...

excuse the poor light photos.  I just had to take photos and post ASAP
