    A Huggle sorely needed.

    Over the years that I have been a quilter I have given so many quilts away, many to Project Linus but many more to friends, families and other people in need, I call them my "Huggles". Last night I gave this to Sam my Sewing machine man, it is made completely from Quilting Flannels so it is exceptionally cosy.

    What is amazing that this wonderful man has fought Leukaemia for over 13 years! Without telling us he carried on giving TLC to our loved but old and tired antique and vintage machines and with his wonderful wife by his side he keeps bees and makes the most wonderful Honey.

    If you haven't noticed I admire this man so much, I went through my Cancer fight nearly 50 years ago and I hope I did it with the dignity and courage that he shows, GO SAM GO.

    TOP TIP: Go through your UFOs and make a Huggle ready, just in case.

    That is a great idea to have a comfort quilt waiting in the wings. You never know when an occasion will arise where you don't have time to construct one.

    A beautiful quilt for a beautiful man, made by a beautiful person! Such a sweet thing to do and I'm sure he'll love it as much as you love him!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    What a generous soul you are. I bet Sam was overwhelmed or will be if he doesn't have the quilt yet. He sounds like a real gem.

    So very true, it is such a simple and easy thing for us quilters to do but believe me the blessing it gives to people is wonderful, so is the feeling and love you get in return, so dig out those UFOs.

    BTW It was Hurricane Katrina that made me realise what a wonderful gift of a quilt is and how precious those UFOs can be.

    I'm sure he will not only enjoy the warmth of the quilt, but the warmth of your thoughtfulness as well.
