Quilt News
Alice B's quilt has been delivered, but we have not yet received a photo.

Here is a photo Katherine took before posting the quilt off:



Gaynor and Carol have been working on Alfred O's quilt (Penguins) and McKenzie M's quilt (Jungle Animals) respectively, and both quilts will be posted off this coming week :)

Anna has started working on Bradley's quilt and Katherine has started working on Blisse's quilt.

As the busy Christmas period is coming up, Bradley and Blisse's will be the last quilts of 2011, making 45 quilts in total :)

    Quilt News
    Two quilts were delivered this week!

    Faith L's quilt:



    Ollie K's quilt:



    We also had a large train square from Sue in Birmingham that was too big for a quilt, so Katherine made it into a pillow-case for Ollie's twin brother Louis, so he wouldn't feel too left out:



    With many thanks to all the stitchers and Melanie and Janet respectively for assembling the cross stitch squares into blocks :)


    Magazine stardom!
    We are appearing in two magazines this month! Firstly we are appearing in Cross Stitch Crazy magazine Issue 159 (January 2012) with photos of Freya and Evan:



    We are also appearing in the December 2011 issue of Craft Seller magazine with a photo of Freya and Brendan with his Tatty Teddy quilt :)



    We thanks both magazines for their exposure of LQUK and welcome anyone joining us from either publication. :)


    Children in Hospital
    Freya and Caitlin have recently been in hospital, but are now home. :)

    Scott has been in hospital for an operation in hospital, but is doing a little better now, although he has developed a line infection :(

    We have also heard that Seraphina is rather poorly at the moment.

    We are keeping all the kids in our thoughts and hope they will be on the mend soon. :)
