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.

Hand Made Decorations.

The tree will be covered with my hand made decorations.

ACDA Christmas Party Preparations.

 This is the fabric I bought from Savers in Greensborough. I have cut it to fit the tables. Great value.
 Gifts, cards, mats table cloths and decorations ready packed.
I even bought a tree for the princely sum of $1 from the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Now that is a bargain. Meggie in the picture.

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.















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.
