Only Two

 It's been a  busy week of going through books to donate, paperwork to throw out and magazines to cull. We have one bedroom ready for painting so we are making progress but there is still a lot to do. I donated a large pile of books and patterns to my quilting group to be used for raffle prizes, gifts etc.
   I've been trying to quilt at night a couple of nights a week so I can get more tops finished and donated for Christmas and it will mean less for us to move later. At our Monday meeting of AQA we donated 20 quilts to Peter Mac Cancer Clinic and I brought home a lot more tops to quilt which should keep me busy.The first quilt top was made by Marg C., of AQA, and it will be going to a child in care.
The second top was another donation and it is a lovely soft and snuggly flannel one which I backed in flannel too. It will be going to Peter Mac as the volunteer I spoke with on Monday said that some children with solid tumours have an anaesthetic daily for 7 weeks while undergoing treatment and a quilt will comfort them as well as the parents who sit with them throughout the treatment. Sorry I can't remember who donated the top but be assured they are all going to be finished and donated on your behalf.
   Now I am back working nights again so I hope to get some more quilts finished after I recover as I have more basted and ready to go .
Hugs, Jan Mac
