Spotlight Shopping.

 Went to Spotlight today at South Morang and bought these cotton tablecloths, 150cm x 300cm for $5 each. They will be quilt backs and laundry bags for Aussie Hero quilts.
 I also bought the faux suede for the hobby horses with 40% off.
Also this quilting cotton fabric at $4 per metre for the Aussie Hero quilts.
 I bought the steel tubing rods for the hobby horses from Bunnings at $1 each and some stoppers for the ends that I will add the wheels that I have left over from a previous project.
A good day indeed.

 The Mary Frances Project blog. has a free hobby horse pattern. I think I will make some of these too.

I Bought A Pony Pattern.

 After the amazing Hobby dragon I found the other day, How excited I was to find it I can only imagine how excited a kid would be to get something like this, especially if they have so little to start with.
I looked on line for a hobby horse pattern and found this one.
This is her blog.

I bought her pony pattern and I am very excited to make it. Hopefully I can do it justice, My plans are to make some to put under the K Mart Wishing Tree at the end of the year and a couple for the Angels for the Forgotten charity too.
