I had a wonderful time with people attending Solas Day Centre, family, carers, volunteers and staff at the Caberfeidh Hotel today for an incredible three course Christmas Lunch.
The food was wonderful, the company was brilliant and the joy that Santa brought to the occasion was a complete hoot! Everyone went away with a gift and I took the opportunity to say a few words about the Quilter in Residence Project with Chris Hammacott and how it will now continue through January to create quilts for the people who did not have an opportunity during November.
I took down the exhibition quilts from An Lanntair’s Mezzanine Gallery this morning and returned them to their owners at the Christmas lunch today. One gentleman expressed that he is keen to hang it on the wall, ready for when the family arrive for Christmas this week. One gentleman has said that the cat missed patting his face on his picture while the quilt was being exhibited so he will be glad to put it back on the sofa.
Many thanks to everyone who made this such a life-changing year in so many ways. Merry Christmas and I’m looking forward to working with you all in 2017.
