I've been a bit snowed under with silent auction sewing and helping organise or kindergarten trivia night.
So while I got to enjoy some sewing time, there is nothing much to show for it as it is now all in new homes.
There were three paired lots of boys T's with stencilled robots and appliqued stars with detachable capes on them.
A new hula hoop skirt that matched the swinging girl T you see below that made a cute little set.
Sweetly it went to one of Miss G's little kinder buddies and she was delighted that they will have the same skirt (albeit in different colours) to wear together.
I also did a few of these 'formal' T's and they were a bit hit, in small sizes and large.
Then there was also a ruffle joy skirt with a matching appliqued T sold as a set.
Thankfully the bidding on the lots was quite competitive and they all went for great prices, which is nice...
People's generosity is really heartening sometimes.
The night was a big success - and now I have my evenings back, for a while at least!
Being part of the kindergarten community is important to me - I believe strongly in volunteering for roles within groups such as this as I believe this is what keeps them rolling along.
But it does take a substantial investment in time, energy and emotion depending on the role you take on.
I am thinking I might have a year off from kinder committee next year - though there is one lovely member of our committee trying to convince me to stay on in a smaller role.
Her arguments are quite convincing.... just not sure if my family would disown me!!
I find it hard to say no to such things as I feel there are far too few people prepared to put their hands up and make a commitment. Then having made such, some people almost need to be dragged along in order to get things done or to voice an opinion or to offer support/feedback...
What about you, are you part of a committee?
How do you manage your time and involvement in such things?
Do you ever feel disappointed with the lack of commitment from people who form part of communities such as this??
