Here is your sneak peek at the two pink quilts I have been working on for the my High Tea fundraiser for the McGrath Foundation.
There will be more pics to come and I am very excited that they have turned out so pretty. I’m sure they will go to the home of a regular Alphabet Monkey supporter.
So they will be open for bidding on Thursday Oct 3rd at 8pm EST. I will have an album on my facebook page so that my facebook and blog friends can have first option. If they do not reach the min normal retail price (180) they will go onto etsy where I’m sure they will be snapped up by one of the many people who always ask if I can make something pink. I want to make sure we make the full amount possible as it is all going to a good cause and since they are one of a kind quilts I hope we may even get a bit more.
We will also have some bunting which has been generously donated by Jules and Gem of Bunting by Design in Perth. They heard about what we were doing and offered some gorgeous bunting to either auction or raffle off and are also lending us some bunting (like that pictured above) to use to decorate our High Tea party. They do offer a bunting rental service on Etsy which is such a great idea and they also make up custom bunting too. You can see their shop here
I’ve never really done any kind of fundraising event before but I must say I have been genuinely surprised by the offers of help and the unexpected generosity.
For example my father is involved with the local fishing club and they had an urn we could use for on the day. When he went to see about getting it and casually mentioned what it was for they immediately offered to add $100 to the collection. I thought that was lovely.
We have also had Kat of the ultra cool Chuck and Taz (coolest pram liners going) donate $100. And of course my own family ..thanks mum!!
My local Domayne store at Warrawong is kindly donating some high tea related goodies to raffle on the day.
And if you have been with me on Instagram you will also see the vintage tea cups I have collected up, we have Sharlene from Le Decorateur styling up a storm, family baking up a high tea feast..so I am hoping for a fantastic day.
I will keep you posted but if breast cancer has touched you in some way and you would like to contribute any amount at all, you can go to my online fundraising account here.
