For a lovely lady

Dear Ank in the Netherlands has had a rough trot with her block swaps due to no fault of her own.
Firstly when I was updating the data base and cleaning it all up at the beginning of this year I accidently deleted her details, which meant she missed out on a swap and had to email me everything again. (Silly me), and then this month I partnered her with someone that she was paired with late last year and tells me that this person never honoured her swap.  Now this member has let a few people down and consequently she is what caused my firm email this month, and I have since suspended that persons membership.

Short end of that long story is that I have made Ank a block as an apology of losing her details, and to make up for the missing block that she never received in August.

As it turns out Ank's son lives one street away from me in Adelaide, and Ank has been over to holiday here - so we have virtually been neighbours.

Ank loves aboriginal prints, so I made her an Amish star as I could fussy cut all of the Aussie creatures in this print that I chose for her.  Its off on its journey to The Netherlands as I write this.
