Busy week and OPAM for April

The past week Iv'e been busy helping with different projects. 
Each year our town holds "The Biggest Morning Tea" to raise money for the Cancer Council.  A great group of ladies organise it. My friend Jenny and I 's job is to visit the local businesses to get orders for plates of morning tea for $5 which we will delivered on the day...

Also I've joined in to sew for " Days for Girls" .. Please click on the link to see the great work that's happening through this organisation...

These are the shields I've sewn .  

Wednesday after the parade and service for ANZAC Day  it was time to sew-a-long at  The Empty Bobbin  doing blocks for the Homeless Quilts Project.

Thursday was sewing at Patch and I 'm still working On Ringo Lake.  I feel like there is no end to that Mystery Quilt !!!!!

Fridays I'm off to Building Better Bones , Saturday was a 5th birthday party for my Great Grandson. 
And of course I still go for my morning bob while weather permits.... 

Sew I'm happy to have finished my "Holly Christmas Cottage " quilt  for OPAM

You can see my other finishes HERE  .... Thank you to both Peg and Kris for keeping us on track each month.....

Happy Stitching..
