Kat
Kat has now had her fourth round of chemotherapy, so just over half-way now :)

Some of the LQUK stitchers have been conspiring secretly to make a quilt for Kat, which was delivered today :)

Kat sent us this message:

Dear all the amazing stitchers and quilters who have continued to support LoveQuiltsUK whilst I have been absent I would like to personally thank you all.

I had a very very pleasant surprise today. I received my very own LoveQuilt! A big thank you to Gaynor and Jan for secretly organising it - which I had absolutely no idea what you were up to! Also a HUGE thank you to the lovely stitchers who sent in squares of my favourite things! Michele, Jan, Sandra (Oggy!!!!) Sue, Kate, Gilly, Carol, Caroline, Liz, Chris, Karen, Freda, Magda, Gaynor and Kaye. A heartwarming thank you to Melanie for the beautiful quilting it too. I burst out crying when I saw the quilt! I had round 4 of chemotherapy yesterday and I haven't been feeling too good - so the quilt will be well used and I can feel the Love! xxxxxx
