Sewing with Others for Others
It was a beautiful drive to the Mingenew, 45 kms away, with the sun shining driving past the new crops growing in the huge paddocks.
I was met by Kym, who organised the day and runs the local craft shop. I was shown into the pub’s dining room were we set up our machine’s and introduced to the other ladies.
Shelly Hubon from HD Streetwise came form Perth to tell us about how the Shaggy Quilts will make a difference to the homeless she helps.
We had a great day,sewing madly, chatting, eating yummy scones for morning tea and making friends with a new group of lovely ladies. We completed 8 quilts in 6 hours by 8 ladies.
Look forward to doing it again next year but for two days and then we can make many more quilts Kym and Shelly...

Some Me Time!!!
For the past few days DH was in the big smoke for an appointment and to spend some time with our DD and family. Sew I had a bit of “Me time”.
The first day it was wet and cold sew I worked on some secret sewing…
Also decided to re pot my plant that lived on the fridge. When I went to lift it down this happened…Grrrrrrrrrrrrr…
After cleaning up the mess it was re potted. Looks great on my pretty table runner Teresa made for me..
Day two and the sun was shining. Great time to do some mowing on the block..
It was challenging to find the ride on which was tucked away to the left of all DH’s toys.
Hmmmm Messy Shed…….
Today I sat on the patio and tried to work on some more secret stuff but someone wanted to play…..
Have a great weekend and I hope you get to stitch.
Pssst I have also signed up again for Cheryll's "Santa Sack Swap"
You can go over HERE to join in the fun……
