The've Done it Again

Those lovely ladies from the Pakenham Patchworkers and Quilters have once again presented the woodworkers with the quilts that we need to dress up our dolls beds and prams - 48 in all, if I've counted correctly. I've photographed just a few of them here. Each one is a tiny masterpiece of stitching executed with the same care and precision that would go into a quilt for a full size bed. These women are such a giving bunch who present their beautiful work unstintingly to several recipients. Apart from their patchwork they also knit and crochet scores of little garments, teddies and blankets for needy newborns and where these aren't suitable they hand out cheques to welfare organisations.
I'm so grateful for people who feel the need to give when there are so many who need to receive. They make the world a nicer place.
I hope yours was a good weekend and your week will be good too.
Bye for now until next time.
