Happy Monday, everyone!
This post is being written a bit ahead as my connectivity may be interrupted over the next few days while I’m in the Wilds of Kentucky!
I’m staying with my friend Irene outside of Louisville until we leave for retreat in Cave City on Tuesday. Irene is just moving into a beautiful place out in the country and internet is not hooked up yet, and I don’t know what the situation will be until I get there and see what my cell reception will be as they won’t have internet until Tuesday.
So this is what is on my mind right now as I fly of to Kentucky.
I received the following email from Jo in Australia:
I know we are in different countries but you have followers worldwide..
We have someone in special need here. Just wondering if you could spread the word....
A well deserved quilting lady needs help.
Jan-Maree's house burnt down over night so we are trying to give her as much help as we can rally up...
This is what Jan-Maree does for so many serving Australians with Aussie Hero Quilts.
So far for 2016 we have sent off 1576 laundry bags
which brings us to a total of 9396 since we started...
We have also sent 690 quilts
bringing our total since we started to over 5955 quilts.
Now it's time to do something for her.
https://www.gofundme.com/28xyxwn2I am sending this up today instead of my regular chatty newsy quilty post because this has hit my heart. I can’t imagine my house burning down. I can’t imagine losing not only the fabric, machines and quilt stuff, but a whole life of living in photographs, momentos, objects of daily living that have been part of my life for as long as i have been making a home.
Any help would be appreciated...
Please spread the word any way you can....
Today I’m asking you to head over to the gofundme link above and do what you can to rally around this quilter who has done so much for others and who needs our help. Can you spare $5.00? Can you spare $10.00? What if this were your sister, your daughter, your friend, your mother, your neighbor?
Thank you for reaching deep and GIVING to someone you don’t know.

Keeping Jan-Maree in my heart and prayers, it so could well be any of us.
I’ll be in touch as soon as I find connectivity. Posts may not happen on schedule in the mornings, but they will appear!
