Quilts For Queensland
I dont know how many of you read the blog of Retro Mummy in Australia but her blog is amazing and I've followed it for over a year.
She has four beautiful children, runs a fabric web shop, bakes, goes to church, zumba classes, takes the children to dance classes and church groups and I get tired just reading about it all.
Queensland has suffered such devastation with the floods and there are so many sad stories of loss of life and homes that Corrie has set up an appeal.
She has launched a Quilts for Queensland appeal here , you dont have to make a quilt just a 12.5 inch square to be used for a quilt, she has a group of friends who are all going to put them together and she is asking her bloggy friends in the region for deserving families in their communities to send them to. Her husband has to fly to Queensland once a week so he will take them to save on postage (oh yes did I mention Retro Daddy works away for half every week as well - think I would be Nervous Breakdown Mummy not Retro Mummy.)
Please help out if you can, the link above contains all email addresses and information, appliques squares are just as welcome if you are unable to quilt and as Corrie herself said "this is not MasterQuilt !!!!!! just have fun.
We are having a go , I thought it would be a good DT project for the kids sometimes I do struggle with this home educating to think of things to do so hopefully I will be able to post some pictures of our attempts, hopefully they will be good enough to send.
