Recently I made a bid on Raggedy Ann over at Bluebird quilts blog, in aid of the Queensland floods
I was lucky enough to be the winning bidder
Also included was a mystery gift
Lyn sent me some lovely goodies as well as Ann in the hope I will get motivated
Included was some gorgeous fat quarters, two patterns I hope to get on to making the needle case real soon
Also there were some cute buttons as well as a note pad and pen and a brooch
Thankyou Lyn
you are very generous
Today is going to be very hot
I may just stay inside with the air conditioner on and hopefully get some sewing done
I finished the charity quilt and will post a photo sometime soon
Was up very early this morning to take my Grandson to Trade school He doesnt have a drivers license as yet and his Mum is working
After eight weeks I will be used to being an early riser
He started an aprenticship as a boiler maker just prior to christmas
He loves it
