Good on ya Sandy
This quilt arrived in the post
It is big enough to fit a queen bed and go over the sides.... HUGE
with beautiful quilting
It came with a beautiful card which read:-
"Our son was based at Cabarlah last year and when we visited him in May, he drove us around and through Murphy's Creek to show us how pretty his new location was.
Living in SA we cannot help physically, however, I made this quilt for our bed a couple of years ago and would love to think it will go to someone special as they rebuild their lives"
It is wonderful to be part of a group that is participating in making these quilts.... it is so encouraging to see the fabric that has been donated.... whilst I was there today one young girl came in with her baby and dropped off a beautiful complet quilt kit (Robert Kaufman) - with thread and said she would like to pay for enough batting to finish it..... Outstanding.
~ It's stories like this that just make my day ~
