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..............

What a gorgeous quilt. I really feel for her. Losing everything. I just couldn't imagine. Mine are in the mail today.

Such a great post Chooky, good things can come out of these hard times. Also good that her hubby was included.

Makes my heart warm seeing this post. Such a wonderful thing you are doing Chooky!

Susan said...

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.

Wonderful thing you are organising Chooky. I need to look at my time schedule and staying power to get a quilt finished and off to you very soon!

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!

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!

So pleased you were able to give something to such deserving people. It is a small start, but a wonderful way to show that people care.

definitely a difficult road ahead, for that couple....but hopefully rebuilding will bring them much joy

How lovely :) I'm sure they are surely appreciating that people are thinking of them.
