Updates - for Destash for Malawi

I am so grateful and overwhelmed with the wonderful response so far, to our Destash for the kids in Malawi. I wanted to pass along a couple of updates that really cranked my tractor!!

First, Anita, the Kropfs' daughter-in-law, who is inventorying and packing the donated fabric and thread as it arrives, told me that she has received over 100 yards of fabric so far!! I think that ya'll definitely deserve a drum roll, or a trumpet fanfare, or . . . maybe some fireworks!!

I really feel honored to be a part of this awesome community of quilters, and to be able to help with this effort! I can't wait to see pictures from Malawi, can you?

Another update came from Julie, of the Intrepid Thread. She sent me pictures of the lovely fabrics that will go to new homes at the end of our challenge! We'll have a random giveaway, and all of these will be sent to generous quilters:

There's Lola's Posies, and Alphabet Soup (one bundle for a girl, and one for a boy project).  There are more bundles, too, of Prince Charming, Dazzle, and Hoo's in the Forest . . . I just didn't want to make you have to haul out the cleaner and the paper towels, after you added noseprints to your screens this morning!  :)

I'm so happy that our challenge is going well, and the kids in Malawi are going to have some great clothes for school! Thank you to each and every one of you that has donated so far.  We'll keep you updated on how it's going!  And if you want to be a part of this challenge, just click on the "Destash" button over on the right hand side of this blog!
