Thanks to each one of you who put in a bid for the necklace "Ludnie's Hope" in the spirit of generosity. The winning bid went to Jen Alderfer, who happens to be my sister-in-law who has a great big heart for orphans. Such a heart for orphans in fact, that she and her husband adopted three children from Russia several years ago!
To the Patchwork group...I will be sending the proceeds toward your project. Keep up the great work!
