A quilt for our mum!

Our mum is going to Thailand for Christmas and New Year. She has some important stuff to do there so she is busy getting ready for her trip. Anyhow I chanced to find out that some people are having a fund-raising auction for her and another lady to raise the money they need to go and do this very important stuff.
Now here is me, just look at me for a moment. I am a stay at home mum with three children, I don't produce anything that Helen Clark would regard as helping the economy (except maybe Ezibuy's turnover) so what important stuff can I do??
Well I am going to make a wall-hanging type quilt to sell at the auction. I've planned it, and found the fabrics, I've cut it all out and I'm going to sew it carefully together. Then i'll back it and quilt it all over and then I will put a binding on it. It will look ok I think and maybe it will raise $50 for mum.
Now officially I'm not going to Thailand to work with the children there or help the helpers in the special work that they do, but just for tonight I am part of that work in Thailand even though I haven't left my house.
What do you think about that?
Jesus said, "If you give a glass of water to a little child because of Me, you will be rewarded." I think He'll like the quilt I'm making Him tonight.

Deb! With such a willing heart, so much motivation and the creative ability you have to make beautiful things you will have a great investment in anything I do in Thailand. Thank you so much! xx Mum

Can't wait to see it. I am dusting off some cards i made a while back (and wishing I had gotten organised sooner to do other stuff!)
