Thank you to all the lovely people who purchased one of my *Beauty Is Timeless* patterns over the last 10 days! We together have raised $160 so far, which will pay for 50 Clean Delivery Kits for mothers in Somalia! \o/\o/
But we're not finished yet - there is still $15 left over, which I will add to the amount I receive from the sale of the actual cushion, to purchase as many Clean Delivery Kits as possible!
From today, I am beginning a silent auction for the purchase of my *Beauty Is Timeless* cushion.
If you would like to own this cushion, handmade and designed by me, and sewn using the lovely Aster Manor fabrics from 3 Sisters, then all you need do is email me with your bid.
The bidding will be open until Monday, 17th May (Australian time), so go to my profile page HERE and click on the 'email me' link to send me your highest bid.
If you are the winning bidder you will need to pay me by Paypal (or direct bank deposit if you live in Australia) on Tuesday 18th May, and I will pay the postage to you anywhere in the world!
Would you spread the word on your blogs, please!?
I have decided to keep the BUY NOW link open HERE for the $4 pdf pattern purchase, until the bidding for the cushion is closed. The more funds we raise, the more mothers in Somalia will be given basic health and medical necessities with which to deliver their babies, thus increasing the survival rate for both mother and child.
(The pattern will no longer be available to purchase after Monday 17th.)
Everyone who has purchased a pattern already, and those who purchase before the close of the silent auction on May 17th, will be given 1 entry in the draw for a kit to make the cushion, and if you blog about it (with a link to this post) leave a comment here to tell me and you will have 2 entries! I will be checking your blogs so please tell your readers about this before you leave your comment. :-)
The kit contains all the fabrics, threads, and pearl beeds to make the cushion!
I will draw the winner of the kit on Monday 17th May.
