Donations And Next Quilt.

 Thank you to the 3 ladies involved for sending me all this lovely stuff. This morning I received 2 large postbags with batting and fabric for Aussie Hero makes.
Things were quiet here last week, I took a few days off from sewing as I was not feeling that great and rest and sleep was the order of the week. Feeling much better now and started my next Aussie Hero quilt request.The blocks will be part applique part paint.

Aussie Hero Quilt Started.

The quilt I was working on has been put aside, Not needed at the moment, on the plus side all the fabrics are ready for whoever needs it next. This one is soft /light blue with ducks, bears, German Shepherds and Cattle dogs. The light coloured fabric has ducks all over it and will have the dogs appliqued on it. The ducks will be appliqued on the top and bottom blocks. and the bear appliqued on the centre block. a small flag will be put into the top right hand corner.

This is a quilt that has to be done quickly and fnished and posted by the end of the week. Purple is the request. The pinky purple is the backing the rest will be free motion stitched blocks. I made a quick dash to Spotlight for this as I had no purples in my stash!

Aussie Heroes Shopping.

Posted a parcel this morning, and as usual since I was already out, we went to Spotlight. I am always looking for bargains to put into the care packages to go with the quilts and laundry bags. Got a really good bargain today, Lip balm, Terra Firma brand natural lip balms. Usually they are $5 each but today they were on special for 50c each. I bought the lot, 89 lip balms for $44.50 saving me $400.

Laundry Bag.

 I am always looking for things to use to individualize the laundry bags and quilts and so when i saw these shoe laces on sale in Spotlight I knew they were right for the Aussie Hero I was making for right now, He is proud of his English heritage.
 Using it for the cord for the laundry bag I cut the pair to fit and sewed them together.
