Update from Houston!

I just recieved this post from Quilts, Inc. They report:

"Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from quilters worldwide, the Quilters Comfort America project has received more than enough quilts to place with evacuees. If you were planning on sending us a quilt but have not yet, we urge you to find use for it to help those within your own community. Thank you for your efforts."

Wahooooo!! This is just OUTSTANDING! And I'm oh, so glad that I decided to donate my quilts here locally. On Sunday my massage school is having an open house kind of thing, we are doing massages for 'donation' and anything that comes in will be donated to the relief effort here locally since we have had busloads of transplantees from the disaster. I'm glad to help that way too!

That's so wonderful! Mine are still piled up, waiting to be mailed, so perhaps I will take them to the 1,000 local evacuees we have in my town... Thanks for putting me into Quilt Mavericks, BTW. I am so excited to be joining such a great group.

I still have to finish the backing and quilt my quilt for the evacuees from Katrina. I'll have to find a new place to send it! Thanks for keeping us up to date!
