Caring with Quilts update.............

Caring with quilts is going very's been getting some other media coverage as well as what we have all shared online and I am getting people contact me about more quilts.............
Quilters are amazing people there is no doubt about that............
Nicky (New Zealand) and Maree sent these yesterday
Last weeks mail was from
Yvonne, Brenda, Margaret, Patrizia, Marc, unknown lady, and Lynda sent 7.............
Someone else arrived the other day - Peg and Dale.................they now have a passport and travel bag......these girls have luggage - probably since they went to Japan as they did come back with some serious luggage.............of course they had to check out the quilts............
And when I add all those to the pile I have 
50 quilts.........
this is an amazing pile............
The Googy Girl has organised the Traditional Nine Patch Swap..... 14 blocks for February are done....I had to start with blue........... 
OK crawling back into my hole until we get some rain................proper rain....
.....I could be gone for awhile........they keep forecasting it and we get nothing........that's worse then when they don't forecast any rain - you don' t get your hopes up..........
Catch you later..............


  1. Fantastic effort with the quilts, such a great response. Gorgeous blocks. Hope you get some rain soon.

  2. WOW - NZ Post/Australia Post have done themselves proud.... I only posted the parcel on Friday! Was going to email you today to say keep an eye out for it lol
    What a fantastic bundle of quilts, I'm sure they will be appreciated.
    Love the nine patches, and I really hope you get some rain soon...

  3. well done ladies a lovely lot of quilts there,lots of lovely people to be wrapped in love and comfort.xx

  4. I so, so wish I could send you some of our rain. We get so much that summer has been lost to some hazy humid weather that won't even dry the towels properly. Maybe in March we could do a bit of swap - we'll send you our rain if you send us your dry? Congratulations on the great number of quilts. Are you still wanting more? I made a start on one but will not be likely to finish it for a couple of months due to my slow health. Cherrie

  18. I'm a quiet reader and observer of your blog!!! I just posted on my blog and mentioned the Stich-A-Long, although I'm not participating, nor have the books being used, I'm busy stitching up other things I like and want to make from various magazines.

  19. Have you got any decent rain out of this lot? Wish I could send some over the mountains to you. I hear Tamworth got some, it must be your turn next.
