Here's the car packed full with quilts before we set off for Kinglake. I managed to get 180 quilts in and they have all gone to good homes so now we're back to sewing and quilting madly to get the next lot done so we can spread some more cheer to the bush fire affected areas. You could see the strain the people are under as they try to rebuild their communities and hopefully the quilts have brought some comfort. The kids were very happy to hug a quilt and there were smiles on all their faces as they made their way home. The mums who came to pick them up from school were also happy to see the kids' smiles and they thanked us too. Now we want to get more quilts out to the older kids and parents and older members of those communities.
On a different note, DH's biopsy result wasn't what we'd hoped for and we are now waiting for more results so we can discuss treatment options. Seeing the kids at Kinglake was a life-affirming day for us as we focused on others.
Please keep us in your prayers as we face the challenges ahead. I have a quilter's convention to attend after Easter and I did plan to cancel going but he wants me to go off and catch up with my quilting friends. I've put everything into place with the Dr's appointments etc so we'll can't do any more until we hear from them.
