Kitties and Crafting.

 This is one of my daughters cats, Too Cute!
 Wet felting in my daughters wet room laundry .
 different colour combinations.
 Love those colours.
 What we actually made was a cat door stop. wet felted body, needle felted muzzle and inner ears.
 To show you the size.
We wired the tail to fit and hold at the back of the door. It was a great fun project.

Happy New Year.

 It has been a while between posts, I needed a break. We have been to visit our daughter and son in law in Bathurst NSW and my daughter drove us back and stayed a while and drove back.
We did some crafting up there and finished it off here, ( pictures of all that later).
 This is the kitty that came to stay with us mid December and we have been unable to find his owner, Face booked him in the Lost and Found Mill Park and surrounds, sent his picture to all the local vets, and cat shelters, He has not been neutered and we door knocked in my area with is photo. We hope to get a special permit to have a 3 kitty household. Meanwhile we are calling him Sandy.
 Tilli and Meggie.
 Masters closed down, I bought this massive roll of cord for Aussie Hero laundry bags a whopping 90% off price.
 My first block of free motion quilting for this year. I don't have a quilt request at the moment but are doing random blocks ready to incorporate into quilts as I go. I used variegated threads bought in Bathurst for 50 cents each, Usually they are between $9 and $10 each.
 This was not bought all at once, We went back 3 times, I wanted other people to have a chance of getting some. Are they not wonderful? They will give the blocks a bit of pop for no extra work.
Lastly for this blog post, just like last year, I went to the Brotherhood of St Lawrence Opp shop and found 2017 pens, I bought 110 of them, 10 for a $1 and each gift pack for Aussie Heroes will get one. My plan is to make 110 gift packs.
I hope all of you will have a great 2017.

ACDA Christmas Party.

Today we had our ACDA Christmas party and it was just fantastic. Everyone has a good time. I will post pictures when I have some. I unfortunately with everything I had to carry forgot my bag sitting on the chair at home. Jill, a lovely lady bought me 4 raffle tickets, what a sweety, I won a prize! How wonderful is this, a sewing machine trolly. I will be taking my sewing machine to club each month now. I have just the best friends. Thank you so much Jill.

Christmas Gifts Continued.

 Two table runners for my daughter, They will have table mats and coasters, not pictured so that something is a surprise.
 Gifts for the lovely staff at the post office.
There are 5 of them at my local post office that I see every week I post my parcels and they always greet with a smile. Hand made mug mat, hand made bag to put them in, (easier than trying to wrap them), and a cake in a cup sachet.

Table Mats.

 This is 30 table mats for the ACDA Christmas party. Zig zag around the edges so that they can add binding if they wish, I realised I won't have time to do it myself, but the fabric will be provided for them if they want to do it.
This is the start of my daughters Christmas table mats. My daughter loves crochet. The crochet rope mat is sitting on a pizza tray, the size that they will be when finished. I will be making 8 of these and a table runner too. The table runner will be a quilted one.

2016 Charity Makes.

 It may be a little bit early to do a run down on 2016, but I have a very busy month ahead of me and will not be blogging so much, (I need a break!)
 So I have done a run down on my makes this year.
 Just a few of the quilts and laundry bags I have made,
 The total number of Aussie Hero quilts is 66 and the laundry bags is 72.
 Busy making Christmas gifts at the moment.
 I wanted to make a collage but my computer is not cooperating at the moment so the pictures are just laid out.
 I want to give all my friends and family a lovely Thank you.
 I could not do what I do without all your support.
 Thank you too to Spotlight and Savers and the lovely staff at the post office.
 Keep well and best wishes to all of you.
