This very striking ATC was made by Joni of South Carolina. Thank you to both girls.
My daughter in law Nikki has just had a birthday so I made her these two little containers for her MP3 player and the earphones. I had to put a hole in the bottom of the smaller container to allow the cord to plug in. Took a while to work out what I would do, but suddenly remembered I have an eyelet kit for my Bernina - did the job brilliantly. Now I have remembered it I shall have to use it more. I remember seeing some beautiful creations done by making lots of different sized and coloured eyelets. I am not certain I will have the patience to make a whole page of eyelets, but we shall see.
Yesterday was our 41st wedding anniversary and today is Dougal and Nikki's 9th so we all went out to dinner tonight to one of the local steakhouses - we had all the family with us so had to be family friendly. Lovely to celebrate together as a family though - we all came back to our house for icecream and coffee to finish up - and watched the end of an exciting one day cricket match, which the Australians won!
The cricketers all gave their day's earnings to the bushfire appeal. There was an appeal conducted around the grounds during the day and sponsors kept ringing in with donations as well. I think over $3million dollars was raised today - what a wonderful achievement for such a worthy cause. The whole nation is in mourning over the tragedy. The floods in North Queensland pale in comparison.
