Just a reminder that the bidding’s going to end next week at Brenda Novak’s Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes. I’m delighted to say my offering of all five of my quilt pattern books (autographed, of course), plus a copy of Sister’s Choice, and a $25 gift certificate for fabric at Connecting Threads, an online quilt shop, has nine bids, but the prize is still worth a bit more than the latest one. So now’s your chance to get something fun for yourself AND help raise funds for diabetes research. Quilters, wouldn’t these pattern books make great Christmas gifts for quilting buddies?
Plus, if the winner of my auction offering emails to tell me they saw this post and bid because they did, there will be a little something extra in the package.
Finally, remember The Ride to Beat Hunger? Scott arrived back in Vero Beach yesterday after thirty long days riding his bike across country. He set out to raise $50,000, and by all accounts he even raised more. Now the money will be put to good use feeding children and assisting families. I call that a good month’s work, don’t you?
Thank you, Brenda and Scott, for seeing a need and saying, “I can do something about that.” You’re both inspirations to me.
