More Donations Thank You

Today I collected two parcels from the Post office both packed full with fabric.Thanks to Lindi and Linden, the fabric will soon be made into tops....Things are happening slowly at the moment we are making tops but we are waiting to hear if we are accepted for the grant if we aren't we will have to do some serious re thinking and fund raising....

Also I am handling a family tragedy at the moment my dear mother in law is dying so sewing is taking a back stage at the moment...

Give Away

We are applying for a grant to enable us to back these cot quilts with Minky dot fabric and to cover the postage... In that grant application I have to come up with a quirky name. Something that says in a few words what we want the money for and attracts the attention of the grant committee.

I have thought of a few and will list them in order of preference
Grannies Quilt Love
Love Spans the world
Grannies care
Because we care.

Now if you can come up with the ultimate quirky name I will award a prize to the one that I use.

Please leave a comment with the name or email me the name.


Postie arrives with good things

Today I collected four parcels from the post office.
