I'm back, until I forget again!

It's been so long and if I don't do something soon I may as well close the blog, except I like going back to see what I've been up to.
I have a few quilts that are leaving/left the house so I thought I'd record them for posterity.

This one was a raffle quilt for Launceston Patchworkers and Quilters "Girls Night In".
Members embroidered the panels, I made stars etc and assembled the quilt and Jane at Purrfectly Quilted quilted it for us.
Erica Davis was the delighted winner and we raised nearly $1500 on the night for Cancer Research.

The next one is a top I made many years ago when the first strip pieced designs came out using 60 degree rulers. It has to be about 18 years ago or earlier!
It languished in the UFO cupboard and finally completed. It will be given to my friend Lindy Lockhart who works at the LGH in Recovery. She wants a new thermometer and it costs about $500. I hope she raises enough money to buy it.

The next one I called "Blooms In The Valley" and donated to "Life Education Tasmania" to be auctioned at a Garden Party at Lalla this Saturday, 29 October 2012.
Graeme is on the board and it's a very good cause.
" Life Education is the largest non-government provider of health education to children and young people, Australia wide. Our Mission is to empower children and young people to make informed choices for a safe and healthy life. We work with and through schools."

That's enough for today. There is one more quilt to be given on Sunday to a nephew for his 18th birthday.
