G'day all. I am doing things in a different order from normal tonight. I often wonder whether it is better to put the important stuff at the top of a post or at the end. Do you start from the top and read the important information and then skim and scan the rest, or do you read the post from top to bottom. Do you remember best the info that you read last? Who knows. I guess it depends on the reader. Anyway, tonight I would like you to read to the bottom, or at least make sure you read the very last piece in red because I think it is fundamental to why we all do what we do.
I don't like to go into details as I am not sure how much I am welcome to share publicly but for those who are not on Facebook, the lovely Old Bags and the Dag are doing it a little tough at the moment and would welcome your good wishes and prayers.
Here is the list of those who have sent off quilts and laundry bags so far this week. Because we have a sewing day tomorrow I may not be able to add pictures to tomorrow night's post that I receive after tonight but have no fear - they will be added to next week's post.
It is much appreciated.
Don't forget the social event of the year!
The Brisbane Dinner
Sometimes I don't just hear back from the recipient but the person who submitted a request gets in touch as well. That is the case here about a quilt made by Sandra.
She was so excited and loves the theme.
And a special note - this fellow made it home on leave in time to be present at the birth of his first child by with just hours to spare! Can you imagine how hard it was for him to leave his pregnant wife let along to leave again. That is sacrifice!
