a nienie auction

AUCTION OVER.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR BIDS AND YOUR GENEROSITY! I HAVE EMAILED THE WINNERS!

blogging is such a great thing. it has really changed a lot in the world. people can say things they wouldn't say otherwise. people are friends who aren't really friends. people are teachers without even knowing it. that's how i feel about this adorable blogger nienie. i've never met her, but i have been learning from her blog for almost a year. she is everything a mother should be. she loves life and she loves her family. about a week ago she was in a terrible plane crash. i've been anxiously following details of it with a heavy heart.
in appreciation for what nienie's blog has done for the world, thursday has been declared "nienie day" and in an effort to help, i am auctioning off these two little baby quilts. each made of 100% cotton fabrics- with sweet swirls of patchwork appliqued on front. machine quilted and hand finished for a timeless look. i love them and hope someone out there will too!
to bid just leave a comment saying which quilt you prefer and how much you will offer. the winner will be able to transfer money directly to a paypal account set up just for nienie. happy bidding!
details on nienie here
details on more auctions here
*Updated: these auctions will stay open until Monday Sep. 1. the quilts each measure about 36"x45". sorry for the not so great pictures...
following the close of the auction i will contact the winner (make sure to leave email in comments!) you can transfer the money dierctly to the nienie fund in paypal, then forward me your receipt and i'll send your quilt!

Oh my, this is so sad, and so glad of you to do this auction! I'm afraid the bidding has gone past my budget already, but the quilts are beautiful and I've always loved them on your Etsy store. Good luck, and prayers for Nienie and her hubby.
