They are a lovely group of passionate women who sew and make whatever is needed for the animal rescue carers of South East Queensland.
Unlike the previous sewing day where we made gauntlets (long fingerless gloves) for the bat handlers, this day was filled with pouches and bags and cuddle cups of every different size. They are made from cotton, flannelette and polar fleece and are lovely and soft and warm as well as protective. These ones were for gliders and possums and joeys, so there were lots of different sizes.
As always, the lovely Madelaine opened up her gorgeous house to us and kept us full of delicious food and coffees.
The view here is incredible too!
The glider pouches were our first priority.
But luckily we were on fire today and managed a stack of macropod pouches as well. We actually needed one that day.
The RSPCA dropped off an orphan joey on the day to one of the carers. The carer, Susan, named the little joey Madelaine after our host and I just love this photo of the two Madelaines together.
