Recently I have been working on a "Block of the Month" called Sunshine & Sunflowers. Late in 2008 Ian was sent across to the other side of Australia and had to do a weeks work in Townsville Queensland. He enjoyed his work there of course he was put up in a lovely hotel right beside the water with three course meals each night and fully cooked breakfast each day. I sent him of to Tinker's Cart to purchase a book for me. The one I wanted wasn't available but he chose this one for me. I even went out and purchased the material not long after he got home. I have peeked into the bag of goodies every now and again. I was even tempted several times to use the material in other projects. Well I have decided to bite the bullet and start it.
Dawn Heese. I love this project because I am raiding my stash and using it up. Plus I am doing it with "Button hole" stitch which I just love.
Nat for recommending some of these. There is certainly lots of inspiration here. I have a confession to make though, I have been wondering where my Tupperware containers have disappeared to over the years. I found out the other day. I was tidying up and re-arranging my sewing room. They were in there full of "projects on the go'. I found I had started a project from the Blue and White cross stitch book and hopefully that will be a project I will finish not just leave there to be done sometime soon!!!
Love and prayers go to people across Australia involved in the recent bush fires who lost there homes in Lake Clifton south of Perth and to everyone who have had to endure horrendous times with the floods in Queensland. Thoughts especially to those who lost loved ones. Lets hope the recovery process is taking shape and your futures will be bright. I was amazed at how well processes were put in place to help people.
I know there are lots of appeals going on. I think the main thing people need is money. Please make sure you make a donation either directly to the flood appeal or to one of the service organisations like Red Cross etc.
