Placemats

Ihave my three participants for the PIF
Thanks Lorralyn, Keeli and Jill You will all receive something from me in due course
Some of you may remember last year my 12 year old grandson wrote a poem for a school competion and he won first prize for his age group and $50.00
I decided unbeknown to Anthony to enter his poem in the Cancer Council Arts Awards
Yesterday he received a letter and a certificate to say his poem was Highly Commended (The letter said highly ,the certificate doesnt)
He is to be invited to the presentation in Melbourne next month
He was so excited one would have thought he won first prize
The poem read
Cancer is Evil
Auntie fighting for her life
Chemotherapy
Feelings crushed as hair falls out
Three months off to live her life
I finished the scrappy placemats for my sisters birthday Hope she likes them
My sister is not into craft of any sort, but usually apreciates what I make her
This weekend Iam off to a Scrapbooking Retreat
Iam so in need of some me time
Iam looking forward to it
