I can tell you what some of the items will be, though:
I have made some more pencil rolls like these
Remember this? "I Spy" was lost and FOUND!!
Since I had given up on on getting it back, and that it's reappearance this week was a complete surprise, I have decided that fate has intervened :) I completed the last block and assembled the quilt top yesterday, and will start quilting it tomorrow.
I'll also have some patterns and other smaller items.
While I was sewing yesterday I was listening to ABC radio where they were having a special appeals day not just for the bushfire victims but also for those affected by the floods in Queensland. I was happy to hear about the opening of hearts and wallets all over Australia. The ingenious ways money is being raised by young and old. In times of great tragedy, despite difficult economic times, compassion and generosity prevail.

How to help? I have donated cash to the Australian Red Cross appeal, and will put the binding on this quilt
It was always intended as a charity quilt, but just hasn't found a cause yet - I think I just found one.
Next Fri (20th) Woolworths is having a special trading day where 100% of the profits will be donated to the Bushfire appeal.
Silent (quilty) auctions are cropping up:
Handmade Helps Out
Melly and Me
Maree (On my Verandah)
I will be adding to it so come back tomorrow to see my auction items. All proceeds will go to the Australian Red Cross Bushfire Appeal.
