Woo Hoo – only 80 more laundry bags and we will have sent 3000.

Greetings all!  Don’t forget it you are emailing me this weekend you might have to wait a little for a reply as I am away socialising for the weekend but the laptop and phone will be keeping me company so I will be keeping an eye on things.   I just may not be quite so prompt with me replies as you are used to.  

Some gorgeous quilts and laundry bags heading out this week.  Please don’t forget, if you are posting to HMAS Newcastle we REALLY want to get every last parcel in the mail NO LATER than Friday the 26th and the earlier the better.

So now on with the show.

Sarah and family have been sewing again.
