AAQI Charity Donation and Gonk
Here's a picture of my charity quilt with a Gonk. I thought they matched with their plaid character!
My Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) charity quilt has now been given a number, and is in their internet listing of quilts for sale at the website:
There are lots of beautiful quilts for sale there, all for a great cause. This one is named "Homespun Triangles" and is #10405. I see several quilts there that I want to buy. They put a price of $40 on this one.
Do you know what a Gonk is? Gonks are egg-shaped toys from the 1960's.
I visited my friend Dee recently, and her brother had brought his Gonk over to her for eye repairs. Her older brother Harry, used to cruise around his neighborhood in the 60's with this Gonk strapped in the back seat of his ultra cool 1957 silver Chevy convertible!
Now he keeps his Gonk on his houseboat, where his children and grandchildren can enjoy him. Anyone else have a Gonk about 50 years ago?
I'm posting this small quilt on the pieceful life blog with the other posts for Little Quilt Monday. I like to see what other little projects people are working on there.
I'm in Michigan in the middle of a forest, so I have to go to the nearest town to get internet service, so please forgive me if I don't respond to your posts very quickly. I am on vacation from internet service, and it is showing me how much I miss it.
