Pears and Plates

I am very excited to be featured in the April issue of Homespun magazine with my quilt Pears and Plates. I really enjoyed all the components of making this quilt.
Talented friend FIONA from BubzRugz quilted it for me.....I was so thrilled with it.
It is  so nice to finally reveal it to you all now....and you thought I hadn't been doing anything lol!
I really hope you enjoy making it if you choose to as much as I did.
Before I close I just wanted to express how proud I am of our Son and family and friends who have helped Lucas exceed his fund raising goal in the Longest Melanoma March from $1,000 to $3,000. Thank you so much for your support.
On the weekend my Son and DIL travelled down to Sydney to once again walk with Jay Allen and accompany him on the last 17 kms of his 1200km journey in 29 days from Brisbane. 

Our very lovely DIL Cara....such an amazing and loving support to our Son.

Met other folks in the same situation. ....Luke Lewis...Cronulla Sharks footy player...Melanoma doesn't discriminate!
Lucas with the very inspirational Jay Allen....who raised an incredible  $217,000 from the March.
Without these crucial funds being raised our Son wouldn't have had access to life saving new drugs. 
So grateful!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
