A lovely time

Yesterday was misty and grey here in Leicestershire, so what better to do than load up the car with quilts and drive up to meet Judy from Fostering Futures to deliver them!  We meet halfway between our homes and have a coffee and a catch up. Perfect! 

Here we are, Julie, Maria, Judy and myself in the cafe.  It was really busy, but we managed to get a table, and endured the envious glances of some customers who had to stand up.  Can you see I'm holding an envelope?  Judy had had a coffee morning for Project Linus and had raised enough money to pay our venue rent for the year, and two rolls of wadding!  Thank you so much all you generous people!  We were overwhelmed by your generosity! 

It was worth the trip for Judy too, as she took away 81 quilts for her looked after children.  

We managed to get a passer by to take a photo for us.  It was lovely to see Judy and hear all her news.  We were sad to hear that she may be moving away - well, sad for us, but happy for her.  Were determined not to lose touch though.  Good luck to her!
