I was at Winchester House, (owned and run by the Cancer Society) this week for a meeting and as usual, I always check out what quilt is currently displayed for the month. This time, it was a vision of whimsical creatures portrayed in watery blues, greens, and lilacs. This lovely little quilt, Sea Angels, was stitched by Yvonne Symonds, who kindly loaned her quilt to brighten up the surroundings at Winchester House.

After the meeting, Cancer Society Volunteer Sharon had something special to show me. Her friend had purchased an afghan and pattern sheet from the Op Shop for $5, and Sharon had offered to do the cross stitch designs for her. Stitching friends have all donated threads for the project – a wonderful collaboration between a group of ladies who all wanted to help out on this project. Once completed, this beautiful afghan will be backed with something cuddly, and donated to the Ronald McDonald House for a sick child to enjoy.
