Jenni Omand from Victoria has been very busy using up her stash during lockdown and she donated an incredible 20 fabulous quilts. The pandemic has lead to an increase in domestic violence, financial hardship and homelessness, and organisations which support people in need are seeking assistance to provide basic necessities such as bedding, food and clothing. The demand for their services has increased by 30 to 40 % recently and I have spent the last two days sorting and packing quilts, blankets , baby play mats etc. I still have many quilts in store for the bushfire areas but I am not able to visit those areas attending moment.
Gill Wright from NSW has very kindly sent another parcel and this one contained a huge quilt, backing and binding, and it will make a fabulous gift quilt when finished. I'm also busy making more baby play mats as requested by 2 different groups and the QAYG blocks are ideal as they are well padded and the variety of fabrics will give the babies plenty to focus on. Many thanks for sending so many varied QAYG blocks as well as other donations to help those in need.
Hugs, Jan Mac
