  11. 1/5 This is a great cause. I just donated 5 dollars. Hope you'll get loads of money for the birth center. I am in the UK so only fabric for me in case I win. (ideally some Heather Ross, but that's down to the goddess of fate, Moira, what a great name for a baby :)

    Good luck to you.

  97. It's funny you're obsessed with featherweights.. after my husband's Grandmother died, my inlaws dug up quite a few she had, and stupid me not realizing their value at the time told them I didn't want them, so they got TOSSED OUT IN THE GARBAGE. I'm going to be kicking myself in the behind for the rest of my life. Oh well, live and learn I guess. 4/5
