Charity Auction

Several people have expressed an interest in having some of my mother's crafts.  While I am very attached to anything that she made, she was such a prolific artist that she did leave literal rooms full of quilts, paintings, and other hand crafts to me.  I've pulled out items that had special significance to me, and am planning on putting the rest of her items into a charity auction with all the proceeds going towards the Colon Cancer Alliance (http://www.ccalliance.org).

I'm still doing preliminary research, but hope to sell the items in an online auction opening the first week of March.  As I finalize the plans, I'll keep you posted.

It's a great thing to do and we will be looking for your next post.
Hope you are doing well and please know you have my continued prayers.

The Calico Cat said...

Great idea. Your miles may vary, but I find ebay to be the easiest way to handle this sort of auction. Just put your links here so all of her friends know when & where to go on ebay.

Libby said...

Such a loving way to honor the work of you mom. Her beautiful handworks are sure to land in the hearts and homes of folks who will cherish each piece. Please, keep every single thing you 'think' you might want at a future time. Plenty of time later for a charitable contribution should you change your mind.

Michele Bilyeu said...

This is such a loving and wonderful thing to do. All of us who read here think of you every day, Tim. We all loved your mom and we loved her strength, her talent, and her passion for quilting and being positive. I think you do her proud.

Meredith said...

Great idea, I will be on the look out to see what becomes available. Your mother was a talented lady. I am so glad you will be keeping what speaks to you.

Thank you Tim for sharing Karen's talent with the world. I would love to have one/all of her Suffrage blocks...they are so amazing. Will watch for your notice.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

What a great way to be sure your Mom's beautiful work will go to those that will love and appreciate whatever you can bear to part with. And to help others as well! I'll keep an eye out for your links.

Pierro said...

God Bless you, Tim
I just found your mother's blog. I have never been here. What an amazing woman.
I am so sorry for your loss. She had a phenomenal life. She is safe now.
This is a great act of you to auction your mother's creations

Pat said...

Tim,

I completely agree with Libby's comment. You don't need to rush. Enjoy every thread that she touched and cherished.

MARCIE said...

Oh wow, she has so many wonderful things that I would cherish. I will watch for your notice. Good thinking Tim!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Tim, I haven't been checking blogs regularly and just saw where you had posted. I think your Mom would be so pleased (and proud).
