Today I was so very proud of all you stitchers!
I went to the hospital oncology unit to give the next consignment of quilts to Eddie of CHICS and he and the staff were so thrilled to receive them.
Whilst we were there in the parent's room a lovely little 3 year old boy came to see what was happening and nabbed the kit bag, containing Janet's Yacht Quilt, so we told him all about the quilts just before his Mummy came over and told him to put it back. When we told her what they were for she was so thrilled especially when Eddie asked Toby on the spot if he'd like to keep it!
Toby's Mother especially wanted one of the cards too and was so very touched when she read inside.
Eddie has been asked by staff and parents if we make them to sell and everyone is amazed when he tells them why we do it and that they are given with good heart by caring crafters! All praise indeed to you all!
Doh! I forgot my camera but when we asked Toby's Mum to take a photo with Eddie's phone she asked if Toby could be in the pic! So cute! I'll post it just as soon as Eddie transfers it to his computer and sends it to me.
It was wonderful to see the joy you have all helped create.
BTW...Little Toby is doing well and has only 6 more months of treatment to go.
The first batch of letters will be in the post tomorrow in thanks from CHICS!
(Hope you've all grabbed a button and are displaying it with due pride)
Now catch up of one of the lovely quilts delivered today and this super bundle of Teds comes from Super Star Stitcher.... ta, dah!!!
I love the quirky layout of the pieces in the quilt and the bag and Ted made from the same fabric is a cute little extra popped in the pocket. The red satin edging finishes it all off so strikingly.
Thanks so much to Annie (Wipso)
