Cat sent in this message and a picture of her rolled quilt, before she filled the box with more treats!
I sent the crazy star quilt in the mail today. I found that folding the quilt to the width of the box and then rolling it up made fitting it in the box really easy and left plenty of room for some treats!
A lovely thank you came in last night from this fellow for a quilt that I posted off - the top was made by Heather T and it was quilted and completed by Carol, both Turramurra Quilters.
We also have some gorgeous young talent among us too
You may remember me referring to Angela of the Chatting Chooks.
Well, meet her daughter, Amy!
She is in Year 10 and when she wrote to me to ask if she could make some laundry bags for those on HMAS ANZAC she said in part -
I think what you do for these soldiers is great and something from home, which I am sure they miss when over there fighting, so thank you.
What a little gem! Well I like to encourage new sewers so of course I said she could sew for us and I asked her mum for some photos of her sewing to share!
Once she had finished the first one, according to her Mum she said "these are easy”! She whipped up a second then asked Mum if she had any more fabric? What a question to ask a quilter.
For those of you not on Facebook you will not be aware that we have had a huge growth in numbers in the last 24 hours - we have gone from less than 500 likers to 522 as I write this at 230pm and loads of lovely encouraging and supportive comments. If I get time........I will try and copy some of the comments on to the blog for you but that means re-typing all of them so that might take me some time unless someone has time to do that for me and email me then I can put it up on Thursday. (As at 8.30pm Central Aus time the info requested by Jan-Maree has now been sent)
Till next time..........keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
