    Thanks Louise,

    This brought me to tears.  It's amazing the quilts and the girls survived.  It made me think of my mom's cousin in Montreal.  He was a member of the Canadian Riflemen who was captured in Hong Kong Christmas 1941 and spent the remainder of the war in a slave labour camp.  He was so brutally tortured and starved that a died not that long after the war.  The article is a  beautiful story of human perserverence and ingenuity.

    Jane
