Thank you so, so much to all of you who bid and commented on my quilt auction for the Victorian bushfires. The response was really humbling: so many of you, from such disparate places, made such generous bids. Nettie was successful with a bid of $380 plus postage for a vintage sheet cot quilt. It’s made to order in blues, purples, and pinks.
Extra surprises came from Josie, who threw in $50 just because she’s a sweetheart, and Dan’s aunt Ange, who offered to donate $200 for a tiny scrap quilt she could use as a wall hanging or on the table. How could I say no?
And that’s how I managed to donate more than I earn in the average week — certainly not something I’d be in a position to do without your help.
Nettie and Ange’s quilts will be in the mail today, along with copies of the thank you letter sent by the Red Cross. Thanks again to all of you for your kindness.
