Quilt Auction Housekeeping
Gee, I wish I could say that I made this stunning, little beauty. But it was a gift from my sweet friend, Anne. Isn't it fantastic, and aren't I just the luckiest gal alive to be the recipient? And if you can believe it, the husband even approved it to be hung on the wall. A first! Even he must love it. Anyhow, just wanted to put that picture up as a teaser to more boring matters at hand...
Quilt Auction. It's usually this time of year that I am receiving quilts from all over the country, photographing them, and writing up posts to advertise. Unfortunately, while I do love to raise funds toward pediatric brain cancer research, I am unable to do the auction this year. My day-to-day life finds me super-busy with four little kiddos at home and the homeschooling that they require. So I have decided to take this year off.
I have been given two quilts, however, that were unsolicited by me but donated by sweet ladies who want to help. I plan to do a "mini-auction" for these two quilts this spring. Please contact me ASAP if you have a quilt that you had been planning to donate but haven't yet let me know. I would be happy to auction a few more quilts in addition to the two that I currently have, but I just cannot swing an auction of 20+ quilts this year.
I hope to be able to do a larger auction again in 2016. (Oh, it really is so much fun, isn't it?!) Thank you for your understanding and support of our cause.
