Another parcel of dresses, undies, pairs of shorts, t-shirts and quilts which took me more than a week of nights to sort ( a total of 8 parcels) from the ladies of Kapunda South Australia. The 30 quilts have been published and acknowledged separately and this time it is for the rest of the stuff I have received - You probably wont see it clearly in the picture (boxed images in red) but this batch actually had more than 300 undies -
I hope I get all of this correctly and dont missed anyone. The undies came from Liz Williams (most of them) and Di Fennell, t-shirts from Paisley Parish, dresses from Diane Cain, Deborah Parish, Julie Quast, Margaret Adair, Sally Giles, Loris Pullen and Shirley Bell. The shorts were donated by the Robertstown Senior Citizens.
