Nothing wrong with it at all, just a little dusty. A quick wipe over and it is done. Now I can have a maximum of 3 people sewing in my sewing room at a time. How cool is that!

I will then join the 3 rows together and add the binding. This will be finished so that I can post it on Monday.

I went to their engagement party too and met some fabulous young ladies then who have been following me on facebook since that time and because of that I will be having an adult Crafternooners day on the 3rd Sunday of each month! They want to learn do lots of things! This is going to be so much fun! Just another way of paying it forward for the next generation, we will be making dresses for Dress a girl around the world, making laundry bags and quilt blocks for Aussie Heroes and capes for Angels for the Forgotten and with that comes skills to make things for themselves. They too have made the promise of making something for themselves, something for a gift box and something for charity.
I will keep you posted!

Today I am transforming plain blank cards into hand made cards for Aussie Heroes and each laundry bag gets a little package from me along with their laundry bag (and now quilts too).
Plenty of printing happens here, (my hand writing is atrocious) although I did purchase my own handwriting font which I love!
First I wrote a blurb about myself and why I make the bags, then I have a page of my e-mail address and my postal address. All will have them cut and glued inside the card along with a couple of jokes from the books bought from Savers and an Aussie flag sticker for colour and on the front is either a word search or a crossword with the answers on the back of the card. Just now I came up with the idea of scanning the answers to the crosswords so that now I can use more of the puzzles! I wish I thought of that before!
What are you doing today?
