This is the current state of my strippy blocks, and I think I'll make another 20 or so , to make a large single bed size.
I've been involved with a little fundraiser of my own, with the computerised quilting lists that I'm on, and we have raised nearly $3000, which is absolutely fabulous. It's good to be able to make a contribution, no matter how small. I 'd like to echo Bonnie's sentiments in this post, about how you can give to the Premier's Appeal. A lot of the places under flood are places I've lived, including the Lockyer valley where I went to Agricultural College. It hurts to see such devestation wreaked on an area of beautiful, productive farmland.
I haven't had a lot of free time, so not much more sewing has taken place, but for my own sanilty I need to get back to my machine. Dolly and Pippi know the antidote for stress; a comfy bed in a patch of sunlight, and a quilt to snuggle on.
