Sad news this week, the little boy who received the Quilt for Leukeumia quilt back in September passed away. I have been fortunate to be a part of his family's struggles since September by way of Facebook, and I can only pray that it is never anything that I have to face first hand.I am also very thankful that I could help to bring comfort and support to this great little boy. Cancer is a terrible thing, and medical research in this country needs to be gaining more money, not potentially be cut in half as is currently suggested. No-one should have to watch their little boy suffer like that. As they say, what a wonderful thing it will be when we need to have cake stalls to fund a war and hospitals and schools get all they need.
On a lighter note, and mainly because I don't want to leave all sad and political, fruit's in!! I have made my first batch of Clare's fig and walnut chutney (with home grown figs and walnuts)....looked BAD prior to cooking...slightly offputting, but beautiful after, haven't got a pic, I'll take one the next batch. I did it in the slowcooker, worked a treat!
