Sewing and Bushfire Appeal.
This weeks return to school has been a busy one and our three years is up, so an Ofstead Inspection is due to take place in the next 12 months. At home this week there was a lot of excitment for Emily as she started her Electric Guitar lessons on Thursday. She loved her teacher and enjoyed the lesson, which was a relief. On the crafting front I have been making pincushions and needlecases; both sets are going out to Australia. I sent one set in a zippered pouch with the books to Jarryd, the other is going to the quilter who lost everything along with a couple of fat quarters. I have continued to knit more of my shawl and it is slowly growing, the rows are so long it takes me nearly ten minutes per row! I had to frog my sock as it was too big, so once I need a rest from ten minute rows I'll start again with a smaller size sock. On Friday at work, we had a coffee morning to raise money for the Australian Red Cross Bushfire Appeal. We raised £60. 86 which is approximately $135.00 which was wonderful and several people bought / made cakes too. I made the one in the middle with the white icing and Thank You written in blue, lots more delicious cakes arrived after I had taken the photo which I'm sure helped us raise so much money. I'm off to knit some more of my shawl now, I hope you have a good week. Jane. Oh and this pretty and clever young lady is celebrating her birthday tomorrow. Happy Birthday Ali from Mum, Dad and Em x
