More Warm Hugs Arrive.

 I think of every quilt as a warm hug which we are privileged to pass on to those in need of comfort. More fabulous quilts have arrived and Susan Iacuone made the first beautiful QAYG quilt as well as delivering another 14 quilts from Bendigo and District Quilters.

 Margaret Fleming called in with 9 lovely tops of varying sizes and designs as well as several extra blocks to match some I have on hand.

 I also unpacked the last box from Devon Patchworkers and Quilters from Devonport,  Tasmania, and there were 5 lovely large and cuddly crocheted blankets which will really be welcome as it's very cold in the highlands now.

I hope to finish distribution of quilts in the Corryong area in the first week of July and then concentrate on East Gippsland.  It will be great to be able to take the quilts out of storage and start distribution again and we will need another 131 quilts for primary school children and quilts for 170 households which were significantly affdcted by the fires in that area. I shoukd have a final number of what is needed very soon. Many thanks for your support everyone.
Hugs, Jan Mac
