One Wednesday In March...

when the weather was wonderfully warm...
{the fans were on at 7 am this morning}
i gathered another package to theodore together.

another 6 cushions for the new dongas..caravans..
being built for flood affected peeps.

there are 5 more required.


8 for the primary school there...
the little and prep,
they need 35 in all so the littlies can rest on them
..and sit on them..and play with them!

there are 27 more to make.

here are a few of the kiddie ones that were sent to the school this morning...

i finally figured that all the elephants stand the same way up...
and all the other animals have right way up and upside down figures!

i just used a trio of mismatched buttons on this back.

this will probably appeal to the girls mostly...
but i thought it would be cute for kids.

we're helping them learn to count!

sewing in the selvedge with the little buttons to come off and be swallowed!

a multitude of coloured raindrops and tiny spots on the backs.

a radically different acid yellow...bright botany prints...

a variety of white buttons...all my ducks are in that line!
{i only had two}

the other ones that went to the school are

the spangler's denim cushion


the polka dotted patch cushion.

there are more goodies to share tomorrow...
i didn't get a thing cut out yesterday,
'cos at the last moment i realised i needed some food in the house...
and shopping takes time.

i love that life dishes out the unexpected...
and the unknown...
each challenge encourages us to learn..
and to overcome.

take on today's challenges
with faith and hope in your heart!
