Quilt News
This week, Gaynor has completed Freya's quilt (Rabbit theme) and it has been delivered:





Thank you to everyone who contributed a square for Freya and also mum Roberta for providing us with such cute photos!

Also this week we have received some photos of children with quilts which were delivered in previous weeks:

Aaron:

Elizabeth:

The last square finally arrived for Laura's quilt so Katherine has been working hard on it all week and is now at the binding stage.

The next quilt after Laura's will be Scott's quilt. We have heard that Scott is very poorly at the moment so have decided to move his quilt up. Luckily, all the squares are already in.


Stamps
We have received two large packages of stamps this week from anonymous benefactors - so if you are reading this, thank you very much!

Gaynor has been holding a second-hand book sale at her office in work and has raised £10 so far.

    Quilt News
    This week, Katherine has completed Aaron's quilt and it has been delivered but we have not received a photo. Pictures of the quilt can be seen on Aaron's page.

    Next, Katherine will work on Laura's quilt but the last square appears to be lost in the post.

    Gaynor has been working on Freya's quilt (Rabbits) and has made good progress and is currently on the final stage of hand-sewing the binding.

    Many of you will remember the Tatty Teddy quilt we completed recently for a little boy called Bradley. Bradley was in foster care at the time, so we couldn't put many details about him on his page. This week, the formal adoption came through, so we can now reveal that Bradley's real name is Brendan and we have also put a photo of him up on his page here. Brendan has been very poorly indeed recently, but he is a little more settled this week. Congratulations to Denise Currie and Karen Guy who have a new addition to their family! Katherine met Karen Guy in person this week too so we have put another face to a name :)


    Stamps
    Vic (Katherine's sister for those who don't know) has been sorting out the large number of stamps we have received in recent weeks and cutting 1/4 inch around them ready to be sent off to exchange for cash. Many thanks Vic, and here is an action shot:



    We have received stamps from Joanne Sudworth and Audrey Wright this week - thank you very much, ladies!


    American Fabric
    Gaynor met up with her friend Janette from Oregon last Sunday who has very kindly brought over a large amount of fabric for us while she holidayed in the UK with her family. We purchased the fabric for LoveQuiltsUK at the much cheaper American prices. Thank you Janette for going to the trouble of bringing a heavy package for us! Gaynor is already using some of this fabric on Freya's quilt.


    Sewing Machine
    Gaynor has had her mother's sewing machine on loan since she started quilting for LQUK five months ago. Her mother has decided to donate her sewing machine to LQUK from now on, so many thanks to Mrs Elaine Thomas for her generosity!

    Quilt News
    This week, Katherine has been working on Aaron's quilt (Cartoon characters) and is just finishing off the binding now. Next she will work on Laura's quilt (Butterflies).

    Gaynor finished Bradley's quilt (Tatty Teddy) this week. Bradley is currently in Sheffield Children's Hospital and was very poorly indeed in Intensive Care on Wednesday, so Gaynor took the quilt to the hospital in person. Here are Denise (Bradley's foster mother) and her daughter Karen with the quilt:



    Bradley is a little bit better now, but we are unable to show you photos of him due to his foster care status. Thank you very much to everyone who contributed towards this quilt :)
