Where has this week gone? I can't believe it's the 25th already. My auction for my Lemon Tree quilt will end in 24 hours - Saturday, 11pm EST.
Jojo has the master list for all the raffles/auctions, oh my the eye candy over there. Remember, donations can go to the charity of your choice, as long as they go to Japan! I saw on the news tonight that people are chopping up the furniture from their homes, to stay warm. Quilter's Newsletter is taking donations of actual quilts, you send them to Colorado and they will ship them to Japan from there...now, the post says to mark the box "quilts for Japan" but I have heard of many quilts going missing lately, so I would mark them as "fabric" then be SURE to put a note inside that it's a quilt for Japan. I read on someone's blog [I'm sorry I can't be sure which one] that that is acceptable. You can email Dana [editor] to be sure, her email is in the blog post.
Mum and I went to visit our friend Shirley last night. Shirley had Greta chained up, so that we could actually get in, get our coats off and sit down before we got licked to death. While she was still chained up, mum was starting to eat something and I called Greta's name so I could take her picture....
She looked at me like 'WHAT do you WANT? I'm BEGGING here!' She really gets some funny expressions.
And just for fun, here's mum.
She's my little Irish leprechaun.
I didn't make it to Joann's today for solids - but I did get to my lqs to stock up on the fusible interfacing I use on my stitcheries, Pellon's Shape-Flex. I really like it, it's like fusible muslin. They only had four yards so I took it all. I also picked up several spools of Guterman's hand quilting thread, .50 each! And some fat quarters on clearance for $1.30. That was a nice unexpected surprise.
I'm going to spend the rest of the evening working on my Sis Boom quilt - I really want to get this done. I have quite a ways to go, hand-quilting is wonderful but it's surely not quick. Have a great evening, I'll be back tomorrow to announce the winner of my auction!
