A Week of Finishes.

 I'm trying to downsize as well as getting some of the donated tops finished so they can be donated and bring comfort and warmth. These three tops have now been finished and will be donated to Peter Mac, the hospital which treats cancer patients in Melbourne. Many of them were donated for the brushfire quilt drive in 2009 and I had so many donations that I didn't get them all quilted at the time. Luckily we had so many donations that everyone received a quilt.
   I thought Peter Mac is another worthy cause and I want to use up some of my fabric for backings and bindings so it's good to clear some space on the shelves.
   I finished a crocheted blanket the night before we left on our trip and then crocheted enough squares for two more blankets while we were away. I've finished the 3 off now and they will be donated to a group which helps homeless teens.
  I'd better get back to the sewing machine as I have 3 baby quilts to make by mid June and I have 2 more nieces having babies later in the year, so it's a busy time in the family.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Lovely bright crochet blankets. I am intruiged by the name of the place you are donating the quilt to - Peter Mac. Is that a relation of yours?

No Peter Mac is no connection. It is the Peter McCallum hospital but always known as the Peter Mac. They do great work there.
