    Some wonderful folks here in town are holding a fundraising benefit for my nephew Levi, who was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgekins this past December.
    Our wonderful friends rein and jnebug helped in such a big way and a BIG THANKS to both of them. The fabric for the baby quilt was donated by jnebug and assembled and quilted by rein. rein did the smaller lap quilt, and sent them out to us to be auctioned at the fundraiser. Both of them are just beautiful :).
    The bigger blue bordered one I did, my mother and sister helped with purchasing the fabric. So, all around group efforts.
    I promise better pictures of the quilts with Levi at the benefit this coming Saturday the 26th, but wanted to get them posted since I need to turn them over to one of the gals organizing the auction. She wants to display them at her place of business for a the rest of the week.
    I want to thank sewbusy and Love2Quilt as well. Sewbusy has UPS'd a baby quilt for the auction that is scheduled to arrive Tuesday and Love2Quilt has sent a donation as well.
    Thank you all sooo much ladies, your kindness is overwhelming.
    Thanks also for all of the prayers and good thoughts from all the wonderful gals in chat, you are all soo appreciated and thanks just doesn't seem to say enough!!

    Thanks everyone. I'll update you after the fundraiser and let everyone know how it went. They're having a whole hog dinner, raffle, auction, one of our semi-professional musicians will be playing as well. Everything has been donated including the hogs for the dinner; so many kind people!! I can tell you that the tickets to the dinner are selling like hot cakes!!

    Barb sweetie, not to worry, prayers and good thoughts are worth gold :).

    Lisa...you know, all you have to do is ask...you will recieve!
    Heck, I'd even donate a boat with oars/paddles for a trip here to Guam! No gas necessary, muscle power! lol
    I hope the event is a success and you make TONS of money.
    Hugs to your family!

    Thanks Izy!! You're right about the generous open-hearted people here! It's amazing isn't it?

    Terri, I know sweetie, and thank you so very much. The benefit came about very quickly, with not a whole lot of time to prepare. I had asked in chat one night about "quickie quilts" because I only had about 3 weeks to get one ready. Our wonderful gals gave me all kinds of wonderful ideas, and then made quilts to donate to boot. See, you need to come chat with us more often girlfriend :D. I wonder if we get donations per linear mile on that row boat idea LOL. I paddle left, you paddle right :thumbup: :lol:
