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.

Sewing Stuff.

The last laundry bag for the year.
 What I am working on now. Little gifts for my cloth doll club, ACDA

One of the things I do is decorating for the Christmas Party for ACDA, (I cannot do the food as I cannot cook) This year I am making quilted place mats. One for each person, It makes a great gift and decorates at the same time.

Making Labels.

The main package has all the ingredients on it but not on the individual lollies, I thought it would be a good idea to add them to the lollies. Folded in half around the stick and glue stick in place. I do this with any lollies that are split up and do not have the ingredients listed on them individually along with the use by date.

Spotlight Shopping.

 Yesterday at the Spotlight Christmas shopping night with two $10 Spotlight vouchers, (mine and my hubby's) I bought this lot of fabric at $2 per metre and with the discounts it came to $25. I am not sure of how many metres I have here, but it is a lot.
 Back into Spotlight today to get the ink for my stamp, I could not go past this bargain, 50 lollies per pack, all wrapped and use by date is 02.06.2018. I bought 5 packs. Great for the Aussie Hero packages. I will print out a label and stick it on to the lolly handles with the ingredients and use by date.
This is the stamp pad I went in to get today.
