There is a lot of good hearted energy coursing thro' blogland at the moment so I thought I'd share some local goodness with you.
Yesterday my postie delivered this -
Each year, just after Christmas, I challenge my ladies to make a Linus quilt for our local neo natal unit. At the Open Day, our local rep goes off with a pile of these wee quilts, they usually measure about 28" square.
The above quilt came in the post because its maker, Jackie, won't be able to make it on the day, but still took the trouble to get the quilt to me.........it has joined the others -
This year, our Open Day is expanding into a larger venue over a longer period and we will also be serving teas/coffees and home baking - imagine, an afternoon of Cakes & Quilts!! What could be better.
So, hopefully more dosh will be raised, and this year, we are supporting this local cause - The Vanessa Appeal..
Yes, for sure, quilters have generous hearts..........thank you ladies.
So, for those of you who know you are coming, this is a reminder. For anyone else out there who fancies a day out in sunny Ayr (yes, always sunny here), come along to Alloway Village Hall - opposite Burn's Cottage, Sunday 22 April from 11 - 3. You'll be made so welcome.x
