A super quilt from Annie Wipso in primary colours with lots of tiny Easter chicks
Quilt No 34
Here you can see the detail of this cute fabric and also the gorgeous beautifully knitted little duck that Annie made to pop in the pocket of this tote bag as a surprise.
Recently Annie made around 30 Tiny Teds (sorry I missed the head count) and sent them with instructions to use as I wished. They were immediately pounced on by friends and neighbours who gave generous donations for several of them raising £40 for CHICS. The rest have gone to the hospital unit and Eddie will give some to the children and any remaining will soon sell on the reception desk.
Each comes with this special poem written by the talented LillyBo Poet Laureate, Annie's sister Jo Twiglet.
I know personally that these are very special little bears having carried one with me everywhere I've travelled over the last couple of years. It was sent to me by Annie when our little one was first going through her treatment and I keep it with a very special curl. She is now doing so well and has a beautiful head of curly hair again.
This little bear really helped me through!
This project is not all about making money, it is to make special comfort quilts for the children who are going through their treatments on their journeys to health. However as we've gone along I have received several generous donations ... gifts from customers at the demonstration day I did for Card-io in Wigan in return for my templates and samples, a generous cheque later in the post from Kathy in Ormskirk who had enjoyed the day so much, some money from Sue H to pay for something I didn't want paying for and now the £40 for the Tiny Teds from Annie. This totalled a big fat £123 which has gone to the CHICS funds and will be put to good use to help provide treats and days out during the Summer for the children.
Huge thanks to everyone for being so very kind.
