time to sew

 Jenny from is a blog that I enjoy reading daily she has wonderful ideas, tutorials and patterns that you can purchase.  Jenny is also a very generous lady and has many free patterns.
I printed out her sheets above to help me organise my house... I have said it before I love doing lists!
 Jenny's newest pattern giveaway is for her sparrow block to help an organisation called sparrow ministries.
I scored a box at Christmas time and have been putting my current project inside it to keep it together and away from my thieving cat who also loves to leave a ton of fur on everything.

 If you go to Jenny's  blog (link above and on my blog list) you will find all the information you need to get started.  This year I'm aiming to sew a bit more not just for myself but for good causes.

 I went into my stash and found some nice fabrics which will suit the applique block nicely.
 The other group that I am going to become active with this year is Aussie hero quilts.  My guild has started making tops during January.
 They have block of the month and the one just finishing is a poppy block, which was perfect for me to get started with.
 The instructions were clear and easy to follow, I started them just before I went away and today I had spare time and got them finished.
 go to and you can read all about this amazing group.  Even if you aren't a quilter you can help out with donations.
Tomorrow is my annual triathlon with my bestie down at Albert Park Lake.  I am so under prepared this year so have decided to enjoy the journey rather than trying to achieve a time in the top ten of my age group.
 I will be running for my friend Lynne as I did last year and I will also ride for Nicola who also passed away early last year from cancer.  I will take time to remember those close to me who have lost their battle with cancer.
