A NeW MoNTh

has begun in my cubbyhole... & with it a quilt was finished... YiPPee...
I'm donating this child SB size quilt  called "Cats in the Picture" to
"The Puzzle House"... Autism-Friendly House Association Inc...
of which my friend "Julie" is the founding President.
The quilt will be a raffle prize so hopefully it will raise lots of money for this very worthwhile & much needed project.
This was such a fun quilt to make... & can you see the "puzzle" shape that the quilting makes? I thought it was appropriate as "the puzzle" is the logo for "Autism". It's quite effective & easy to achieve on a domestic machine. I used Gutermann SULKY #4041 variegated quilting thread.
The quilt measures 52 inch x 73 inch

A box of "comfort pillows" & "drainage bags" was delivered to the Breast Cancer Unit at the Mater Hospital here in Newcastle. They were all gratefully accepted too.

Please accept this as my personal THANK YOU to all the ladies who donated... Sue P, Daisy Jayne, Maria W, Carol & Jo. (If I've forgotten anyone PLeASe let me know)... & I was told that all the items will HeLP immensely.
The box contained 25 bags & 9 cushions.

More secret sewing going on too... sshh don't tell... but here's a sneak peek to tease...

I hope the STarT to your month was gOOd too!
