'Love Quilts' Needs You & Me

Last week as I was browsing on the EMS Cross Stitch Board I discovered 'Love Quilts'. These internet stitchers from around the globe, cross-stitch quilt squares for children who are either critically ill or have a lifelong illness. The squares are then made into quilts for these children who we all know can use some extra love. Between 1999 & 2004 'Love Quilts' made 160 quilts. On their site you can see pictures of many happy children who were comforted by the fact that others cared enough to make something special for them.

Maybe all of us who enjoy cross-stitching can take this wonderful opportunity to make a difference in a child's life. Personally I was so impressed and moved that I signed up that same day and am now working on a square entitled "Sea View" for a young girl named Erica.

Please take the time to visit 'Love Quilts' at: They are in need of loving stitchers as there are many kids out their waiting and hoping for a quilt.

This is a great project.
I would like to participate on it, but maybe in next autumn, when I begin to work again.
