"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

The Sale

The Peach Cobbler Mennonite Relief Sale is being held this weekend in Perry, Georgia. My dad just sent me a photo of the display of my donated items.

You may notice that not all the ornaments I made are there; my mom kept 10 of them back to buy herself. Also, a few items are left over from last year.

And here is this year's feature quilt to be auctioned:


  1. What a fabulous display, Miranda! It is a wonderful example of beautiful tatted things.
    Fox : )

  2. Wonderful tatting display! Very eye-appealing jewelry and ornaments! Such a worthy cause!

    Breathtaking quilt! Just spectacular!!

  3. I love the display. I hope your tatting sells well and the sale overall does well.
