*ETA I have uploaded a photo of the charms that will be auctioned off! I am planning on thursday evening for the auction launch. I will announce the winner of this contest and give you all the details for the auction then. I will also post the info to flickr. Thanks for all the support and help with this. In my latest blog post I talk a bit more about it. Please let me know if you have any questions!
**Elizabeth of Oh Fransson was kind enough to donate some more freckles coins! I have included a picture of them underneath the other coins. Thanks Elizabeth!
Well, I finally did it. I managed to gather all the Flea Market Fancy prints. It was fun and frustrating and everything in between. I am so glad to be done with that part and to move onto making the quilt. There were so many people who were so kind to me and sent me fabrics, showed me where to buy them, bought them for me, looked at every shop in London…the list goes on. It meant so much to me and touched my heart. It made this quilt so much more meaningful than it had been before.
I want to pay it forward. There are a couple of things I want to do. First, I want to do a giveaway here on my blog. Second, I want to do a charm pack on ebay as a charity listing for Somaly Mam. If you don’t know about this cause already, please click the link and find out more. I feel like I have to do something as a human being to this cause. I am looking into how to run a charity auction and will keep everyone updated on the details. It will not be for another week or so.
This giveaway is pretty great I think. It is a coin from every single piece in the whole Flea Market Fancy line, including two freckles prints in red and aqua. It is over 40 coins, I am too tired to count them all out right now. They measure 2.5″x5″ each. This is the perfect way to get every print in the line 🙂
To enter is simple. Leave me a comment. Then I want you to do something on your honor. I want you to go and do something nice for someone else. It doesn’t have to be big, it can be a compliment to someone who seems down, smiling at someone….you get the picture. Make sure in your comment that you leave a way for me to get a hold of you (i.e. blog, email, etc)
The contest will end on Wed. Sept. 9th. That should give everyone ample time to enter if they want to.
Thanks for all of your kindness. It has changed me and given me new perspective. I love when that happens. Thank you.
p.s. Some of the coins have been pre-washed. Just FYI 🙂
