For Sue

A couple of weeks ago we had a working bee at the house to assemble this quilt top:
We couldn't mention it until now, as it is a gift for the retiring manager of the house, Sue Harris. Her official farewell was yesterday afternoon, so now we can reveal the quilt.

Sue's 21 years of tireless service have touched a lot of people, and some of them contributed blocks for this quilt. Blocks include personal messages, fabrics with special meanings, and Neighbourhood House logos used during Sue's time as manager. I wasn't able to be at the farewell, but I'm told a few tears were shed during the proceedings.

At some point the top will be retrieved and turned into a quilted wall-hanging. But in the meantime, thank you Sue for being manager for the House's first 21 years, and we wish you a very happy retirement.
