Sadly, early this morning Janet left us due to cancer.
This tatting quilt block that I made was for her.
When Nik (the owner of the NNC craft group) realised that Janet's health was detriorating, she decided that the members should do something for her to cheer her up. The idea was mooted late last year where it was decided that we should make a quilt. So, a number of us agreed to prepare a block each for the quilt using our own craft ideas.
The assembly of the quilt was not without some anxious moments since the blocks are coming from all over the place, including from Switzerland and the US, with the one from the US held by customs for quite a number of days. But, thankfully, the higher powers know what and why we are doing this, and the quilt was finally done last week.
Nik, Rose, Paul and Radha hand-delivered the quilt to Janet at the hospital on Saturday and today, four days later, we received the sad news of her passing.
I will always remember Janet for her beautiful smile, and will cherish the gifts that she made for me.
My condolences to her family.
