Quilts 4 Leukaemia

The first item on my list at the beginning of the week was mailing a quilt that was being donated as a part of Clare's Quilts 4 Leukaemia project. Today Clare sent me a link to a blog showing Tristan with his quilt. How great is that?

Clare's project is one that touched home for me - my father-in-law died 3 years ago of complications from the treatment of his Leukemia - we visited Arlington National Cemetery when we were in DC last week so the timing of donating this quilt was just perfect.

Awww, we don't always get to see where things we donate end up. This is nice.

Mary, you made my day by sharing Tristan's quilt. I'm going to invite a few friends to join the Heartstringers next month for the sew in & send the link to Tristan in my email to give them a flavor of what we do. Such a wonderful gift. Hugs.

That sweet boy looks very happy with his new "manly" quilt! Beautiful and priceless and I really understand why you donate so many quilts. How lucky that you are able to do so! Keep up the good work!!!
