Quilt News
We have received word that Lewis C's quilt (Enchanted World) and Evie's quilt have been completed by our quilters Liz R and Alison. They will be on their way to Lewis and Evie very soon, so we hope to be able to show you photos in next week's News.


Scott
We have heard that Scott who received a quilt from us earlier this year, is poorly at the moment.

Scott's mum, Christine sent us this message: "Hi, my little man Scott received one of your quilts back in may and he is now a very poorly little guy. We are going to the Children's Hospital in Oxford tomorrow where he will have surgery on Tuesday. He never does well with anaesthetic and this surgery is his last chance before his care is switched to palliative.If you are religious please include him in your prayers and if you are not please just cross your fingers! Thank you x"

We will keep you and Scott in our thoughts, Christine.
