Purl and Ashford request a moment of your time

But first, a message from me. I left the house for a bike ride about two hours ago and came home to find that we've gone over $2,000 raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation! Thank you to everyone who has donated!

And now I'll introduce the girls. For those of you who are new to my blog, Purl and Ashford are my three year old "kittens" who are my constant companions. Throughout this fundraising effort, they have been my support team, making sure my lap is warm while I spin the handspun prizes, inspecting the packages as the amazing prizes my friends have donated arrive at my house and celebrating with me as each donation comes in.

They wanted to say a few words. Ladies...

Hello Friends,

Three years ago, our wish came true when our mom adopted us in Oklahoma from the shelter. We have lots of warm places to sleep, more sparkle balls than you can imagine, yummy treats and an older sister who we absolutely adore. We know how awesome it is to have a wish come true.

We are so excited to have been a part of raising more than $2,000 that will help even more wishes come true. Thank you to everyone who has donated! If you haven't had a chance to give yet, please consider making a donation now. We're ready to celebrate your donation with kitty treats for everyone.

Purl & Ashford
