Our Federation Lunch 2018

This is why I belong to the WI. Hartburn do many interesting things and I enjoyed reading this.
The WI started in Anglesey, where I live and each area are part of a Federation. A bit like a mother and all her kittens really!
Putting on a lunch with a speaker is a lovely idea. And if you read the original post, very enjoyable too!

Hartburn Village Women's Institute

Once again our annual Federation lunch did not disappoint ! Heading off to the beautiful Wynyard Hall in glorious Spring sunshine, 22 of our ladies had the opportunity for a little retail therapy before sitting down to a sumptuous three-course lunch. We were spoilt for choice with jewellery made from hand-painted silk, chocolates, hand-made cards, stained glass sculptures and hand-sewn goods to name but a few, and we all enjoyed chatting to youngsters from Egglescliffe School who were selling goods to fund a trip to Borneo !

Lunch included a colourful fruit salad starter, roast chicken breast with mushroom and seasonal vegetables and a vanilla cheesecake with Summer berries. Yum !

The highlight of the afternoon was the entertaining speech from former British diplomat and author Jean Harrod. Having joined the Foreign Office at the tender age of 18, Jean went on to travel the world and become one…

Love Quilts UK Number Two

I had another email this morning, two in a short space of time, and it was so exciting to receive. If you have read my first post entitled Love Quilts UK you will understand what these quilts are and why they are so extraordinary.

This is the quilt, and each cross stitch square is an work of of art. My square is the red boat at the bottom. I stitched it in 2012 and remember it well, simply because it was supposed to be a harbour scene. As I was stitching, I reaslised I wasn’t enjoying it. Although it looked nice, it was very fiddly and would take forever. So decided to just stitch the boat and send it in as an ‘Any Child Square.‘ We never know when these are going to be used and as time went on I forgot about it.

It’s well worth the wait for it to be put together withrsuch lovely pictures.

Love Quilts UK

It’s been a while since I stitched anything for Love Quilts and when an email dropped into my mail box recently thanking for me my contribution, I was suprised, and delighted. That was when I remembered how much I loved cross stitching fo them.

Love Quilts UK makes quilts for children under the age of nineteen who suffer from life threatening or life long illnesses.

I started stitching for them in 2012 when I applied for one for my sister. Each quilt contains twelve cross stitch squares and the child or parent chooses the theme.

As a stitcher, you would check the website regularly to see if any quilts were opening up and failing that, you can stitch an ‘Any Child’ square. These are usually used to make up emergency quilts, or to fill an incomplete quilt.

So the email I received was an ‘Any Child’ square I had stitched in May 2013. So no wonder I had forgoten! In the email, we usually get a message from the family. and in this one we received the following:

“Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing quilt, we as a family are completely in love with it. The detail and quality is completely incredible.”

It makes it so worthwhile seeing this messages and having been on the receiving end, I really don’t know which is more of a thrill – receiving the quilt or seeing a quilt I have contributed to.

You can see all the squares I’ve stiched here.

All these quilts are simply stunning, don’t you think?
