For Carlos Fund Auction, Please Bid

For Carlos Fund Auction
Originally uploaded by Green Kitchen.
Claire from Greenjewls is organizing a benefit auction for a young boy who lost his family in a fiery car wreck. Please visit her preview site in anticipation of the eBay auction, which will take place the last week of February. One of my mini quilts will be auctioned off, so I'll be posting reminders.

In addition to organizing the benefit, Claire has made at least two of her very special felted sweater blankies for the auction. I know they are very special because she made one for me right after our baby was born. She didn't even know me at the time. She was just a a person who read my blog. She's amazing! I rave about our blankie all the time because it's so great to use — big, soft, washable, colorful, full of love. So go bid on one of her blankets when the time comes, or find something else. I was just over there. I saw some letterpress notecards; vintage button and bead bracelets for grown ups and kids; and some nice art pieces.

Here's a blurb about the piece that I'm donating:
Dream — A mini quilt (approx: 8 by 16 inches) designed and hand-crafted by Michelle Russell of Green Kitchen using recycled and thrifted materials, including: vintage buttons, felted wool sweater, and a screen-printed napkin. A white cat sleeps amongst a button flower garden under a whimsical orange tree. The word *Dream* rests below.

You're nice. And my "word verification" today, that allows me to make a comment, is "wrossga," which sounds like something from Norse Mythology, I think. Like Ragnarok, or something.

This quilt is blowing me away everytime I look at it. Your artistic sense really comes through here I'd say. Incredible!

michelle, this mini quilt is such a work of art! It really is incredible and I am so honored you wanted to participate! I love how you continued the graphic from the textile with your embroidery onto the surrounding felt.

thanks from the bottom of my heart!

It's really beautiful! I absolutely love it. The auction is starting right about the time I'll be getting my tax return. Hmmm....

Michelle- thanks for posting about the auction- I emailed with a request to donate the Alice thimble cupboard that I made.[My brother is a fireman and also suffered from a burning accident when he was in 3rd grade- a bunson burner exploded in his class room. It was only his leg but he went through years of therapy and skin grafts.] I hope I can help.

Geez, I like up here in the 'Whine' Country and I didn't even know about this auction.

I'd love to help if there's anything else going on for Christian and his family. Is there something we can do if we missed the Ebay auction?
