I’m not part of a huge or even large quilting group, instead I’m part of a small group of like minded ladies that I really enjoy the company of. These ladies all have different talents and abilities and each one is very different in personality from the other but what these great ladies do have is a ‘can do’ attitude and a huge amount of empathy. So when I mentioned The Gum Tree Designers appeal for flood victims, New Beginnings, the girls didn’t hum and ha, instead they said “when are we going to do it?”
Today is Australia Day, what better day could we choose to start making a selection of sewing caddies as our contribution to the New Beginnings appeal. We were really lucky to gain another sewer when Rachel from ’A Patch Of Country’, in Kaikoura joined in to grow the number of finished caddies.
Only a few caddies got to the finished stage by the end of the day, the others have been taken to various homes to have the hand sewing done. By this time next week we should have a respectable amount to mail off to The Gum Tree ladies.
All in all a very Australian Day.
