Today I have been in to Geelong to do Guild stuff, we visited the local politician to see if we could get some financial help with the Rickie Tims event we have later in the year....we have more information to take back to the committee and decisions to make now. They made us very welcome though.
Later this afternoon Cheryl (Guild President) and I went to the Bluebird Foundation to drop off the Book Reading Quilts
Bron and Lucy were very happy to receive them...discussion was happening over which quilts were going where a they work at different venues.
They are lovely ladies and have invited us to go along to one of their sessions next term.
When I got home this amazing parcel was waiting for me on the kitchen bench
Love a surprise parcel, and isn't it beautifully decorated!
Lots of beautiful goodies inside from Julie of Threadbare Cottage. Handmade soap, Kiwiana fat quarters, hand knitted dish cloths, hand made card, tea towel with a beautiful message about dogs on it, a reminder list with a Chow on it and a lovely hand painted heart with the message "Life is a patchwork of Friendship". Julie helped me out by homing some of my mothers crystal and linen bits, I was so happy they were going to a loving home and this is Julie's thank you!.
Thank you very much Julie, you have spoilt me!
Love the Chowchow!! The lost on the cover here sound very familiar!!
I had better run, hubby is wanting dinner and I need to rescue it from the oven.
Cheers to wonderful friends.
