Di Ford Hall and Alzheimers

Thing's happen that prompt me to be writing on my blog again.
I hear from dear Lori at Humble Quilts her mum has passed away after her long struggle with Alzheimer's. It's such a cruel disease that not only robs someone of their mind but robs a family of the person they once knew. 

Recently an unbelievable thing happened with Di Ford Hall contacting me to ask if I would like her Rotherfield  Grey quilt to raffle to raise funds for The Alzheimers Society. I cannot tell you how overwhelmed I am with this generous donation. 

Those of you who in my early blog days followed my journey with my own husband's Alzheimers illness know what this offer of raising  some funds for the charity means to me. 
This horrible illness dosen't discriminate when it comes to age as my husbands begain at the age of 52. 
 If you think you would like to buy tickets for this worthy cause please email me. 
Tickets are 1.00 each or 5.00 a book of 5. It will be drawn on the 19th November at Cowslip Workshops by Christine Butler from BBC Spotlight and Radio Cornwall.

I can receive money through PayPal for overseas participants but would have to send you a photo of your ticket numbers through email. 
Di has kindly offered to pay for the shipping too so please support us in our bid to raise as much as we can for the beautiful quilt for the benefit of The Alzheimers Society. 

Here is Rotherfield Grey quilt that is featured in Di's book Primarily Quilts published by Quiltmania.
Thank you all and please keep Lori in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time for her.
