...since my last post! How terrible :( Well, here I am again! Today was the beginning of the Christmas Pageants in South Australia, and for those of you that don't know, we hold the biggest one in the world! Speaking of Christmas, one of the ladies that goes to Thursday craft, entered her Christmas waistcoat into the local show and won a prize! Well done, Mary :)YWCA Encore Adelaide were successful in securing a decent grant for 2012-13, which has enabled us to be able to run several programs, so that's part of what I have been up to :) Below is two lovely ladies, Marilyn on the left is a volunteer ambassador in SA for The Otis Foundation ( they provide retreats free of charge for people who have had breast cancer to go and have a holiday with family, friends or supporters) and Ruth, my colleague on the right :) We were at the St Andrews Breast Cancer Luncheon which is held every year. People (and I say people, because breast cancer is applicable to both men and women) who have had BC surgery at St Andrews get to come along for two years after their treatment and can invite a friend to come along. There are guest speakers and a lovely lunch too!
Ricky Tims at the AMQ Festival :) :) What a fab day we all had (well, I think we all did!) Exhausting, lots of woo hooing and light bulbs going on during the course of the day. The venue was at the Adelaide Convention Centre and I have to say I was impressed - staff were great, food (gluten free!!!) was provided and it was EDIBLE!!!! and delicious :)
Lyndoch Lavender Farm with SW and the Fossils for a lovely morning tea. We then headed up to Tanunda for lunch (ice cream really), had a mooch around and then headed back home. Believe it or not that took the whole day up! Was my birthday so it was nice to do nothing much.
Quilty Gal holding a baby - two reasons for the pic....1) She doesn't often like to hold babies 2) The baby is only 3 weeks old, but look at that hair!!!!!!!!!!!
Tara and Lizzy for winning a prize with the Farmers Granddaughter quilt - just beautiful!
Well....that's about it for now folks, probably bored you enough at one time! Till later, I better go and do some more work!
