Bit of a catch up.

It has been a while since my last post but the grass has not been growing under my feet.

The completed costume garment count now stands at over 80 pieces and it is good to see those items done and dusted. I spent last Thursday sewing on approximately 120 metres of red sequins onto four costumes.

I had not been out to the Lillico penguin platform for a few Saturday nights due to being unwell. All but 2 of the baby birds have gone and there are many adults on shore moulting. Once they have gone back to sea we will finish the guiding season for this part of year and will start again in September. The sunset was particularly breathtaking on Saturday night due to the soft colourful hues.

I have just boxed up 14 more Bridie's Blossoms packages for the main northern Tasmanian regional hospital and they will be delivered to the hospital this coming Friday.

 The new packages contain the new keepsake pin that I have put together with charms attached. The pin is presented in a little white organza bag.
At the request of the hospital I have changed the design of the 26-30 week gowns to make it easier for hospital staff to dress the little angel babies of that gestation. Similar to the 17-20 and 21-25 weeks sizes it is a little tabard type gown with a back opening . The sides are also open and closed with ribbons. This will now be the pattern for future packages of that size.

I have also just now sent out Block 1 of the BFC Yahoo 10 000 member BOM to those who are participating.

  1. Your Birdie Blossoms are so precious and I'm sure the parents must be so touched that you take the time to help with during this terrible time. I love the colours you've chosen for the new BFC block, I'm in awe of all that you do. Thank you for all your hard work, I so appreciate all you do for us.
