As many of you know, readers of this blog have been contributing for a while to help my neighbor out. (If you're not sure what I'm talking about, go here.) She came by Rancho Lake tonight to give me copies of some poetry the younger granddaughter has been writing, which I will read tomorrow. She also expressed her thanks to you guys who've been giving, from all over the world. I don't have a direct comment, because she began stammering and became very self-conscious, but she kept saying what a blessing the gifts have been. Another gift is going next week, and she will be receiving one of the_child's Christmas Wreaths courtesy of a reader here.

I'll also be running a mini charity auction here soon. An artist here in the Northwest is donating a handmade Christmas ornament to be sold to support the Neighbor fund. I'll throw one or two things in as well -- maybe an original drawing of the_child's, or a signed print of one of my recent photos (the doll's head?). If anyone else would like to donate to the auctionlet, please let me know.

I can whip up a necklace in about an hour for the cause.

I'll be doing some serious crafting soon to try and bring a little $ in my door, but I'll be glad to donate something as well. Not sure what yet, but I promise it'll be groovy.

Also, if we can time it right, Dave could make and donate one of his killer triple chocolate mousse cakes. Assuming it doesn't have to be shipped to the winner, of course. :-)

That would be rocking. Maybe we'll auction the option of sponsoring the cake for the Neighbor and her granddaughters to enjoy.

I wonder if they'd miss my piece...

You will be receiving something from us shortly--general money and the other stuff for the gift I mentioned. chilperic is off to the US this week where his new check book is waiting for him, and he has an envelope made out.)

I'm afraid I don't do crafts work.

Thank you. You were one of the prime movers behind this continuing effort, as it happens.

Jay,

I have some tatted bookmarks I made on my last tatting binge. Happy to contribute them. I'll bring them to Orycon.

Thank you.

(Though I confess, I first read that as "tattooed" bookmarks...)

I could also donate a photo--something Irish, from kitsnaps, if people wanted. Maybe this, which is one of my favorites...?

I was also thinking...well, let me talk to my husband about it briefly before I discuss it here. :)

I's be happy to contribute one of my LE prints, and if you/people have a suggestion about which one, I can bring it to Orycon...

Wow. Those are amazing. Personally, "Flail" is probably my favorite, but for auction purposes something like "Floral System 2" or "Cherry Bomb" is likely more apropos. When convenient, could you send me a .jpg which I can use to promote the image, along with whatever descriptive text you'd like to include?

Thank you!

Um. Or, as they say here in Ireland, em. I've been embroidering Celtic knots on tea towels. I'd be happy to donate a hand embroidered tea towel to the cause.
Photo to follow before 1 December.
