My friend Carla said that you don't really get an understand of just how many boxes I have in my house until you come over and actually SEE them in my house! Well, the big day is tomorrow and Fed Ex will be here around noon to pick them up and take them away! Maybe this picture will give you a little perspective of just how many boxes of wonderful handmade quilts you all have helped me make and collect in the last 3 months. I am overwhelmed and just how much we have accomplished together!

Each box contains love from someone out there who took time to make a quilt or blanket to send to a person half a world away and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! I will probably cry a little bit tomorrow when the truck drives away.

And then I will take a nap :) I will also post a final count on the total number of quilts we sent. I am still working on finishing up as many as I can and I have several people bringing more tomorrow! THANK YOU! You all are the best! God Bless each and every one of you for the big and little parts you played in making this all possible!

What a difference you have made Marilyn. These quilts will certainly be appreciated by those in Japan that have been impacted by the earthquake, tsunami, and more! Thank you and thanks to all that have helped.

You need a very long much needed nap!
