has had a wonderful response to its re-
quest for knitted, quilted or crocheted
knee rugs, with over 70 donated.

areas in our district, and the auxiliary
ladies would like to thank everyone
who made them.
The rugs are being distributed to
the lung disease wards at the hospital.

LADIES, do you have items in
your wardrobe that you don’t wear
I’m sure everyone has at least a
few things kept hidden away.
We often think we’ll keep some-
thing, just in case “that fashion comes
back in” or we say “one day I’ll fit
into that again.”
Well, here’s a chance to make a
clean sweep of those clothes, and
swap them for some you will wear.
A“Swap don’t Shop” night will be
held on Friday, March 15, at Mallala
Items are to be taken to the hall at
6pm so organisers can sort out and
hang them up.All items must be clean
and in good repair.
Any items left over will be donated
to the Salvos in Gawler.

A LOCAL lady, a regular in this
space, thought she’d try a new hobby
in the holidays.
She though mosaics would be
good, so popped into a shop and
bought a pot, tiles, glue and other
necessary items. Back to the shack
she went, and started about sticking
her nice colourful tiles onto the pot.
About halfway through, she took
the pot back to the shop to check she
was doing the right thing.
“Very nice,” the lady said, “except
you’ve put the tiles on backwards!”
OMG! She didn’t notice the pot
was looking very white, or should
that be blonde, just like her hair!
Maybe she should just stick to
