This Sunday the 31st August is Milo Sunday. We would appreciate some homemade bikkies from anyone who is able to bring them. This will probably be the last Milo Sunday. We will go back to icecream Sunday once Spring Springs.

This month on Thursday the 28th Aug. I have stake leadership training. That means we will not be able to have our Craft night on that night. I have decided to change it to Wednesday once again. So it will be Wednesday 27th at 7.30.  
To keep it consistant we will  have the daytime session on the same day (Wednesday)  at 10.00.  Please let me know if you will be comming.
We will be finishing (hopefully) the casserole carriers or you can bring anything else you would like to work on. If anyone wants to get started on a crosstitch for Phoebe Richardson  (See previous post) we could do that too.

Quilt for Phoebe Richardson

 Kirsten has nominated Phoebe Richardson (Kelly’s little girl) for a quilt on the website www.quilts4kids.com . They make quilts for very sick children. Phoebe is going to be featured as a child of 2008.  This means that cross stitch squares are going to be made by stitchers all over the world in her chosen theme.  If you want to be involved and make a square for Phoebe’s quilt go to the website. Phoebe will be featured soon on  “Kids of 2008”. When her photo appears you can click on it and follow the instructions. You will need to sign up.  You need to choose your own pattern and email quilts4kids to have it approved for the quilt.  Apparently there are lots of patterns online that you can use. Phoebe's theme is “Flowers and Fairies"

 Any questions just ask  Kirsten

It would be a good project to work on at our Needlework sessions. If you do not know how to do crosstitch we can teach you.



All sisters who are interested in participating in the book Club can you please give your suggestions and preferences regarding book choices.  I had the time set for the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm but I am unsure how suitable that is so we also need feedback regarding available times and places to meet.  Please can you contact Kirsten if you are interested and we will get going from there.

Thank you Chelsea for the pics. It seems we are getting quite a crowd these days.

Matthew Pawson has sent the following email:

The Sister missionaries are presently without a car.  I understand that it is getting fixed after a minor traffic incident (which wasn’t their fault).

President Lee has asked them not to be out of the flat after dark unless they have vehicle transport.

Therefore, I am asking whether there are any sisters available, as a short term solution, to transport the Sister missionaries in the evenings?

Can you please ask your wives (as the case may be), or yourselves, and also send this email far and wide, to see if we can arrange something to assist the Sisters to meet their evening appointments.

If there are any volunteers, can you please call me on 

0409 709 884, or reply to this email  matthew@pwl.com.au
