Waiting for EARL

A quick note to say the BASICS QUILT FUNDRAISER was a great success!
The Quilts alone raised around $16-17,000!!

Thank You to everyone who helped and sent in the BASIC HOUSE BLOCKS for these quilts
and all the other supplies!  Without your help, This could not have happened.

I so appreciate each and everyone of you!

Here is a picture of (L to R) Caryn, 
who brought home a quilt, and friend of mine,
and Andrea, from the Little collection, Who also took home a quilt!
Thanks Andrea!  I dragged her up with me to help hold quilts up during the auction... ;-)
