May Biggest Morning Tea

As there was so much happening this month, we decided to forgo a meeting. 

We had a lovely visit from Teresa from

Women's & Children's Hospital Foundation as our guest for the BMT.

  She was absolutely delighted to receive 60 quilts for the Foundation, and told us a little more about how the quilts are dispersed.


 Our BMT spread, lots of yummy goodies to choose
 Some of the 60 odd quilts we gave to Teresa
Teresa and Sandy explaining how they get the children getting treatment having to find things on their quilt, to take their mind off the procedure they are about to undergo.
The busier the quilt, the easier it is to distract them!

Adding labels to the five quilts that Ronda's friend Bronwyn donated

 Merlyn and Joan busy sewing

Nearly finished

Woodpatch ladies and the donated quilts

(apologies to the participants, no one recorded who did what
with the quilts for me, so I had to guess!)
