Blogger seems to be playing up and although I format the post and get all the font and layout looking just the way I want it and then SAVE it - when I come back to it things are not as I left them! So if things look a little wonky, no I did not have too much vino with lunch - but maybe Blogger did!
I did actually go out to lunch today though. Actually I was treated to lunch by a new Aussie Hero Friend called Sue F. Sue's husband, Vince, heard me on 2GB a couple of weeks ago and passed the details over to his wife. As they are proud Army parents what we are doing resonated with them. Sue went fabric shopping before she rang me (LOL) and today we met for the first time.
Look what she brought with her!
Three gorgeous quilts and three gorgeous matching laundry bags! Sue pieced the quilts and her good friend Joanne quilted them. You make a great team girls! Love your work.
Each of her laundry bags has a plain back and look at the patch for the name!
It was great to meet you today Sue. I expect you will be seeing a lot more from Sue F and her merry band of quilting buddies before long.
I always try to answer emails straight away so that I don't get behind. Sometimes however if I get interrupted it is easy to forget to get back to your email or whatever I was doing beforehand. If you email me or PM me on facebook and don't hear from me on the same day or at the very worst the next day, please contact me again and remind me. I regularly check over my old emails to make sure that I don't miss anything but your help would be great.
So, if there are any Sydney ladies who can give me a hand please let me know. I need to cut batting for quilts to go to quilters, need to cut backings for the same. Some of those backings will need piecing. I need to get the cut and sew the binding on two quilts, one needs applique before it gets sent away. I need to pin some quilts read for quilting that I will have to quilt as there are not enough quilters. There will also be some quilts to be photographed and boxed ready to send when the need arises.
I am hoping to have a working day at my home on Wednesday the 3rd of April - that is the next full day I have at home without exams being on. Additionally if anyone is free for a couple of hours from 1 to 3 on Monday the 25th of March or Tuesday the 26th of March from 2pm till pm please let me know.
Normally a couple of good days at home and I would be able to knock over a heap of these things but I won't have a full day at home till the 3rd and that means things sitting there for two weeks longer. I also have quilts that I am making and need to continue on with those.
I live in the Hills District of Sydney so if you are able to give me a hand and that is not too far for you to travel, please email me on friendsofAHQ@gmail.com or PM me on facebook.
The following ladies have sent quilts or laundry bags off this week. If you have also sent a bundle of this week and you are not on this list please let me know.
Additionally if you need to email me pictures of something you have posted I need the pictures by ten pm tonight as I will be out most of the day tomorrow and will not be home in time to add them to the post for tomorrow night.
Annette, Carol and Lynn V
Till next time................keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
