First quilt hand delivered............

The gorgeous lady on the left is a fellow stitcher and she was thrilled to receive a quilt from the CWA "Caring with Quilts" project........
She is an embroidery and stitcher and lost everything................
They are not going anywhere and will rebuild there lives.......
.......their little patch of paradise will be paradise again...........
I gave one to her husband also since I know he would appreciate the time and effort involved (being married to a stitcher) and he was thrilled.............

Catch you later..............

  4. I am sure this and all the other quilts will be treasured by these poor people. But it seems you can't break their spirit.

  10. Now doesn't that restore one's faith in the generosity of our fellow humans - great work Donna! I'm tied up with donations to WA fire losses and that is going so well too!

  11. Wonderful! I listened to the radio online, but didn't hear the segment you mentioned. I probably gave up too soon. (Too much talk of drugs in sport. Why would you even want to take drugs for such a purpose? Professional sport pales into insignificance when you read stories of people who have lost everything in either fires or floods. Get it together sportsmen (cause the professionals are mostly men) make a quilt (or your equivalent) and help those who have lost everything!) Sorry for the ranting comment. Love your work in organising this Chookyblue!
