Update on Quilt Give-Away

All you out there in blog-land have been so very generous!!!! Our hearts are touched by the wonderful donations and the great stories you have sent us.

Several have asked for our snail mail a second time - and mentioned that you felt bad because you misplaced the first email. Don't feel bad - I've done that several time - intended to keep an email and answer it - and then searched for hours and with no results - so frustrating! Oh the fun of email - sometimes it works so great - and sometimes - well, maybe it is just me.

For those who are new - here are the links about Don's upcoming open heart surgery - and the quilt give-away.

So - for those that need my snail mail for sending donations and a chance a winning the quilt - or the other great prizes - here it is. I'm not worried about it being in public - I'm in the phone book and white pages. com will give you my address day and night. :-)

We cannot tell you how grateful we are for the many generous donations - and we both wish you all the best of luck in the drawings. And what generous blog-land friends we have who have donated more items to the drawing. Hand spun alpaca yarn,a table runner, jelly roll of fabrics, a sweet koozie to keep you bottle of water cold in the summer - such generosity astounds us!!! Thank you each and every one. And a big thank you for all the good wishes and prayers - those are just as treasured. I've kept a list and sometimes when this whole open heart surgery gets us down a little we review the list of names and feel your love for us. Thank you seems so inadequate at this time - but thank you - so very much!!!!

Being able to help...even in a tiny way is a gift to US, in my opinion...and we have the internet to thank for this. Keep your chin up.........soon this will all be a distant memory and you'll have a very healthy husband and will both get a new lease on life!
