    Default Shriners Award dinner tonight..You all did good

    The dinner honoring all the hard work we did was tonight and it was very nice. So nice to see all the people that make it happen. We, meaning all you forum members who contributed materials and finished quilts, were responsible for raising over $7K and we have a pile of quilts that they are taking to the hospital for the kids for Christmas. What an awesome feeling. You all were honored even though you weren't present to hear the kind words. This is a great group of old men and their wives. They did recruit two new members in their 60's so the benefit will continue. This makes 5 of them under 85 so hooray.
    As you all have been asking, yes they still want to do this next year so if you are feeling charitable, we, meaning me and the Shriners, are ready to make them into money for the hospital to keep doing all the good work. I do know how much the postage costs to get things to me so certainly understand when you feel you can't do any more.
    DH is holding me back on what he will let me spend but I still have lots of scraps and stash so I will continue to do what I can. And really, he's not a scrooge, he just knows that we have a long life to live on the money we have and need to be careful.
    So, thank you all for your support and your encouragement. Merry Christmas, Happy New year.

    That is great. I hope the good charitable work continues through the generosity of everyone who can.

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

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Super great news, Terry. I had a box of finished quilts ready to ship when you said it might not happen in 2019! I'll mail it soon.
    Thank you for continuing to support this great project.

    Yes thank to all who helped. Sorry I wasn't one of them.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Great News especially that the quilts are still needed for this year's auction. I'm already eyeing my UFO box but that's on Hold until the Holidays are over. Don't worry Terry about buying some fabric we'll keep you supplied.
