Update on the Thousand Colours for Abruzzo project.

You may remember reading about this wonderful project some time ago. I was lucky enough to take part.

All we had to do was make a brightly coloured quilt suitable for young children. This was then going to be given to the young children affected by the dreadful earthquake which devastated the Abruzzo area of Italy. I was very fortunate to have a good friend, Jude, helping me with the quilting. She has a long-arm quilting machine and her kindness in quilting this for me meant that I could send the quilt off to Italy in good time.

It was really exciting to hear from Roberta the other day, and to hear that the quilts had been delivered to the children.
Please go to Roberta's Blog to read all about this amazing project and to see photographs of some of the children's faces. It sounds from Roberta's descriptions as if it was a really emotional time. Be prepared to take some time to read all of the posts, so get yourself a cup of tea (or whatever you prefer) and settle down to the full story. It is truly delightful.

I do hope that you have had a really lovely Christmas. My best wishes to you and your families.
