A “thank you” morning tea - with a breakfast flavour

Our St Mark’s Quilters morning tea/breakfast on a Sunday morning a few weeks ago was an opportunity to say “thank you” to everyone who has supported us this year, both materially and with encouragement and prayer, and to show them what we’ve been up to. 

It was also the last time our Blankets of Love would be displayed before being handed over to Royal Prince Alfred Newborn Care, so we made the most of it, hanging them everywhere we could.

And everywhere we could possibly peg them in the hall…




Where St Mark’s Quilters are involved you’ll know by now there’s usually a bountiful spread of delicious food, and since our morning tea was slotted into the Sunday morning program at church, between the 8.00am and 10.00am services we tried to keep it reasonably breakfast-friendly.

St Mark's Quilters 2011 Morning Tea-1



For the foodies who want to know, there were finger sandwiches filled with ham or egg, strawberry mini-muffins, a platter of fresh fruit (watermelon, honeydew, strawberries, apple, pineapple, rockmelon etc), olive and rosemary mini-muffins, smoked salmon tartlets, and sticky date and chocolate and macadamia cookies(for those who just couldn’t help help themselves!).


Di B and I are just a little proud of the fantastic work done by our St Mark’s Quilters. Does it show? Winking smile



  1. Ooooo yum.....the little quilts are so lovely, I'm sure they will bring comfort to the families of those wee ones.

  2. You should be proud - what a wonderful collection.

  3. You both make me so proud! ...of your dedication to keeping people quilting through all your planning and preparations, for your can-do spirits and servant-hearts for others, and for being two Di's I'm blessed to call my friends. You've brought tears to my eyes with all your generous goodness. You're amazing. Thank you God!

  4. I love your blog. So much love going out into the world.


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
