    Had a quilt sale today

    Today I was invited to show and sell quilts at a buffet dinner of bus loads of tourists from NJ, WI, & NC. We (all of you forum donaters) sold a bunch. 3000 plus in about 5 hours. Thankyou all for your generous donations and the Shriners Project feels a lot less depressed. I feel renewed energy. Thank you all so much. We had so many lovely comments about all the beautiful work that was represented.
    Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.

    Congratulations! How exciting!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

                          That is terrific, and sounds like a massive undertaking and lots of planning. It's for such a good cause, hope it did well.

                          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                            The invitation came last Saturday as I was at a picnic BBQ with the old Shriners and one of the wives was there and introduced herself. She said I looked familiar and I told her I was the woman who wrote down the auction tickets at the annual auction. Then SHE said was I also the one with the quilts and how was that going. I bemoaned the fact that without the restaurant I had no venue for the sales. She called over another Shriner and said, don't you do those tour meals out at the Land o Sky and he said they only had one more this year until Sept but I was welcome to come and set up the quilts there and see if anyone wanted one. So, that's how it evolved. They said I could come again in the fall.
                            Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.
