Ovarian Cancer: Taking Flight

People can be extraordinarily generous.

Sue of From the Magpie’s Nest recently asked if I’d like a quilt top she’d made, for the benefit of Ovarian Cancer. It’s the most gorgeous thing!

As you can see, it’s predominantly teal, so perfect for the purpose, and that lovely dark orange flying geese border really makes it pop. She’s called it Taking Flight.

Well, I said yes, of course. She’s even sent matching fabric to make the binding once I have it quilted. I’m more than happy to provide batting, backing and quilting, particularly as it kept the postage costs down to merely ridiculous instead of outrageous!

My quilting skills are nowhere near as advanced as her son James’, who’s a professional, but I’ll do a simple but respectable job and do justice to her lovely creation.

So the Trudy Crowley Foundation are receiving a double whammy this year, which I feel they totally deserve after the fundraising desert of the past couple of years.

Thank you, Sue. You’re a star, and I’m sending you a big teal hug!
