Mum's been here for a couple of days, so yesterday, we shopped and chatted and cooked. Today we have cut and stitched a few more love quilts. Which made me realise I had an old post from earlier in the year that I hadn't shared with a couple more love quilts which takes our tally from last December to 10 quilts of Love.
These two was donated to the palliative Care Unit at Camden Hospital back in March this year.
This next quilt is for a special little girl "princess" Lexie Nonenmacher. Lexi is 6, and is battling stage four neuroblastoma - a cancer which has spread from her stomach to bones. She had a tumour removed from her stomach recently and will soon undergo stem cell harvesting and further chemo.
This is one of the quilts we have cut, stitched and sandwiched ready to be quilted today. I have loved working with mum on this quilt, and it's amazing how 20 or so ladies, random hearts can come together so amazingly.
This is the quilt that I had cut the binding for earlier in the week, it is ready for me to sit and hand stitch its binding down tonight. This quilt is going to be donated to the "Princess Lexie's Benefit Night", which will be held at Campbelltown RSL Club on November 10. TICKETS will go on sale shortly for this fundraiser. Wollondilly shire residents are urged to consider attending the benefit night to support the youngster in her fight against cancer. For further details call 0412 505 432, 0411 573 040 or search "Princess Lexie's Benefit Night" on Facebook.
And finally this is the other completed quilt top that we have cut, stitched and sandwiched ready for quilting. This quilt is for a another special little girl Kosher-Love. Kosher-Love is 2, and currently undergoing treatment for stage 3 neuroblastoma of the stomach. Kosher-Love was diagnosed in February 2012. Kosher has completed her 6 stages of chemotherapy and has had the mass/tumour removed. She has had her cell transplant and 7th chemotherapy and was thought to slowly recovering well but has now contracted V.O.D ~ Veno-Occlusive Disease a side effect of the 7th high dose chemotherapy. Currently she is undergoing separate treament. Radiation has been confirmed for October the 1st which consists of 4 weeks 5 days a week treatment and then she will be undergoing Antibodies treatment for 6 months. She has had many procedures, transfusions and operations already, yet still has the energy to make those visiting her laugh and feel comforted. We hope that this quilt helps brighten her day, when it fly's on its way to New Zealand to Kosher-Love in October.
