Excited plus babies.

Now to find time to sit and play... I have never been into computer games and sitting on the computer for hours on end seemed useless unless I was reading blogs to inspire my sewing adventures..Lol..
I receievd in the mail last week a software program for my computer that I was excited about. My friend Vicki had told me about the one she received so I asked my DH for a early birthday present and he agreed.... yippee
EQ7 for me to play with.
Excited am I,now I just need to find some spare time to play....
and I will.... soon.
But first I need to prepare some quilts that are going to be auctioned
tonight for Birthing Better Babies.
A charity that helps the women of Baseco.
I heart this great idea started by Cathy and her passion for mums that
have no means of support to give birth.
They give birth in the slums of Baseco.
No running water, not sanitation, no clean place to lay.
Through Cathy proceeds help support a mother through her preganancey to birth with
immunisation, health care, ultrasounds and birth packs.
And I have donated two of my quilts for silent auction at the venue.
The patterns are available for purchase ( see below)

'Blushed' single quilt PDF Pattern
Size: 50" x 66"
$2.50 USD

and 'Peep Po' baby quilt PDF Pattern
Size: 41" x 41"

For 1 week only the patterns are half price
with all proceeds going to Birthing Better Babies.

If you are going tonight, I look forward to meeting up.
Have a great day.
Happy stitching
Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs Dawn x x x
