I Made The Newsletter

A couple of months ago I stayed in Centenary House while Hubby spent a night in Hospital
Centenary House at Traralgon is a Rotary sponsored accommodation facility for patients and family to stay while receiving hospital treatment
I made two quilts for the new rooms and delivered them a month later
I had heard nothing back from them so hoped they were ok
Last week I received in the mail a copy of the news letter and was delighted to see my quilt on the bed

Recently I visited the Vietnam War Memorial Museum at Phillip Island
Amazing what is on our doorstep and we never visit 
I had never been to see the penguins until my pen pal came from the USA, quite a few years ago now and never been back
Any way this place was a fitting tribute to our soldiers who served over there
Some of the RSL clubs had made this memorial quilt

September FNSI

The lovely Wendy once again hosted cyber friends for Girls night in
I worked on my girls day out quilt

Then traced this block
Loving this quilt
Thank you all for the encouragement regarding my tracing
I know it is not great but the end result always seems to turn out ok so I guess that's the main thing

Also managed to get a page done for Sam's album

Happy Birthday to Me

Thursday was my birthday and I got to open my gifts from the girls in the Fat 1/4 swap
We are to send one fat 1/4 in the recipients colour of choice and a small gift beginning with the first letter of your name
Iam always amazed at what the girls come up with for I
I chose black and white
From Our lovely swap captain and organizer, pictured above, I received Iron on stabilizer and Ink pen

From Anthea a note pad with my initials on it and an infuser

Susan sent some Inch binding

Aster chose to use T and sent a coaster for my Tea cup and Twirls on the fabric

And my main gift came from Julie
She is so cute and beautifully made 
I have decided to call her Jewells
Julie sent me some of her black and white scraps from her stash along with my fat 1/4s Her I gift was an Ideas book and a beautiful handmade card

and a teddy bear bag

I love her Thank you Julie
I just realised I have forgotten to take one photo
A job for another day and a new post
Iam still to receive one parcel 
I was truly blessed by you all and I thank you so much
Will be in touch with you all soon
