We also received this lovely picture of the Special Kids in the UK group's summer camp. Many of these children have received a quilt from us and they sent us a photo of 12 quilts together!

Gaynor has spent many hours this month purchasing, washing and generally sorting out fabric and wadding for the next few months. She would like to thank her helpers (Mrs T and Boyfriend :) ).
