Whilst preparations are in full swing for our Mystery Marathon on the 5th September, our day made it to the Homespun Blog yesterday. How exciting, go take a look.
I have been busy organising some little extras, Molly is planning the menu and all of her donations whilst trying to have her first pattern ready to release… We have about 4 almost ready to go with fabric to make one more. She has decided to name them after her close friends so the first one will be Bronnie’s Bundles. It can be made with 80 5” charm squares and Miss M made it in one afternoon quite easily..
Of course Mum has to help with the pattern writing and layout – what are mum’s for? They are being taught to make use of the skills and networks of those around them where they can – I think she is getting good use out of me so far!
She has also been busy completing her first ever painting as an entry into the Young Archies awards. Fingers crossed it makes it to the final four and is hung in the exhibition as she has worked very hard on it for several weeks.
hugs for today
Hi Wendy, she is still a typical teenager and being pushed all the way by
mum! But she is trying. We shall see at the end if she makes her target or
she is threatened with paying us back for 20 years!
The online version will be available for two weeks after the 5th if you
don't think you can do it on the day.

Miss Molly certainly is a talented young lady and has captured a younger sister beautifully...I can imagine the face-pulling, as this is what I did to my brothers!!!! Haven't seen any others but I think it's a winner!! She certainly is working hard towards fundraising for her trip....looks like you've brought her up well - my 14 yr old son did some fundraising for a Brisbane trip for Science and Engineering but I couldn't imagine it going further than that!!
Congrats on the Homespun article..certainly the message is going far. Still tossing up about the online version....many things on the go.

Thanks Annette, only 4 from each school get chosen so we will see, either
way she has done very well I think.

Hi, I thought she did really well with really no painting lessons to speak
of - she was over it by the end but I think happy with her efforts. now they
start portraiture and painting in art..

Painting captures Tilly so well! I love it!! Quilt looks fab too, can't wait to see her other designs.
Great article on Homespun's blog!

Fingers crossed for Miss M that her, way cool, painting makes it to the top 4. Very lovely quilt. We'll be on the look up for the pattern!
All the best on the 5th. I'm so disappointed that a previous engagement precludes me from participating. Hopefully there will be a next time!!! ;)
