http://www.tonicoward.blogspot.com/ Toni at Make It Perfect is coordinating this auction that's on Monday (some blogs are already taking bids). I have friends and relatives that live in, or close too, the flooded areas. Safe, thankfully.
The devastation there makes the flood we had here last May look minor in comparison.
If you want to help in other ways visit Robyn at http://daisyquilts.blogspot.com/ for a list. (14th January entry)
Also The Gumtree Designers are gathering items for "New Beginnings" sewing kits http://www.gumtree-designers.com/ (11 January entry). Items need to be to them BY the first week in February.
