Caring with Quilts......+7.....-3......

Here are some of the CWA ladies at their meeting with the quilts earlier in the week..................They were amazed and can't wait to see more of the quilts...........they also thank you all for being so kind and generous........and are so excited about taking this project on board..............
I did tell them that I already knew my blogging quilt mates are amazing, kind generous people..........
Don't forget to let me know if you can make a quilt or get a couple of friends together to make one.........I will collect quilts over the next 4-6 weeks...........I know one sewing group is having a sewing day next Saturday to make quilt/s for this collection........
They can also be left with 
Anni @ The Home Patch Bathurst 
or
 Kerry @ Cottage on the Hill Nundle
&&&
The mail has been good this week so far..........
This gorgeous bundle of 7 quilts was pulled out of the parcels................
thanks so much  TeresaMaria and Maxine Vic
THE MOST EXCITING BIT IS...................
yesterday afternoon I gave 3 quilts to be delivered to a our first recipients..............
I made contact with a lady and she is going to visit her friend in the next day or so and has taken quilts for them and a neighbour.............she said her friend has been wanting to get into quilting and hasn't had a chance in the last few years but she knows she will be so pleased about the quilt......and the delivery friend was so amazed that you girls were so caring and generous.......passing on a HUGE THANKS on behalf of her friend who lost everything...........
&&&&
Please spread the word online................the more quilts we get the more people we can support.........

I can't imagine losing EVERYTHING.......
Catch you later..............
