I was going to show you what I’ve been up to for the past week or so … but thought I might share what I did yesterday with you all instead.
I belong to a quilting group – Star Sea Quilters – a great bunch of really wonderful ladies. Each year we have a chosen charity, and for 2011 it was Sinnamon Park Enhanced Care Respite centre. This is a place where disabled youngsters can go for a few days or so, so that their parents can ‘recharge their batteries’ so to speak. After meeting the staff and a couple of the guests it was plain to see that there’s a lot of love and deep friendship there, and we were so chuffed to be able to present quilts to the 11 young people who spend some time there. One of our members, Marilyn, embroidered their names on their particular quilts for them too :o). This was especially dear to our hearts as our President Karen’s son Sam was one of the recipients of the quilts :o).
