Hi All,

I am home from Pigeon Forge, and found 3 boxes of wonderful goodies for Merryman House.

Quiltmom/Sherry sent 9 really special coloring books, 2 'Doodle Pads' - blank sheets for the kids to make their own pictures and 6 big boxes of crayons.

Maryq sent an adorable small quilt and 12 cute pillowcases.

Oasis/Linda sent 6 cozy, huggable FLANNEL pillowcases. I know my granddaughter used to LOVE flannel sheets and pillow
cases, and I'm sure the kids at Merryman House will love them, too!

All 3 kind ladies sent me nice notes along with their contributions.

I am so appreciative. I think Merryman House looks forward to hearing from me during Quilt Week in Paducah!

I will copy this message and post also on the Projects from the Heart and Chit Chat sections. I want everyone to see what great things are done by our forum members.

I am home from Paducah and want to report on the wonderful donation of quilts, pillowcases, coloring books and crayons to Merryman House. It was a bigger donation than we have had for a few years. In addition to the quilts and pillowcases, coloring books and crayons I had received here at home from Quiltmom, Oasis, zfatcat, and Maryq, I was met by kho, homegirl, xteacher, Sharon (her forum name escapes me just now, Dory, and Linda the day I arrived in Paducah. They had wonderful quilts and pillowcases (lots of them!) to add to those I brought from home. The back seat of my van was piled high! I called Tina, the lady from Merryman House on the day the quilt show opened, and she came and collected what I had. Then Jaykay arrived with another beautiful quilt and on the last day of the show, bland50 and her grandson, Gavin, came with another quilt and a bag of crayons. Gavin donated a quilt to Merryman House the first time when he was 9 years old! He is now a very handsome 15 year old, and still quilting. He even brought a friend with him who wants to learn to quilt! Gavin's picture is in Eleanor's new book, and she asked him to help sign books after her show that morning. He brought a quilt he had made using fabric he bought last spring (Harry Potter fabric) for Eleanor to see, and she invited him on stage to show it off! I didn't have my book (Forty Fabulous Years with Eleanor) yet, so I had to go without his autograph. After the show was over, I called Tina again, and made arrangements to deliver the quilts to Merryman House. It's an eye opener to have to ring in and be admitted though the gate. Increases my knowledge that we are doing a kind thing for the women and children who are safely inside.
Thanks to everyone for their contributions and for their friendship to me and to the unknown woman and children at Merryman House. You are THE BEST!
