Huge sad sigh from the European bunch, just as the apron was about to travel across over here...

But we are so grateful to Jkath to come up with such a wonderful idea, make it happen and worked so hard to keep it going. We should give a big big hooray to our one and only brilliant Jkath!!



Maybe we will think of some other idea to have another virtual joint venture!!

Jkath's efforts were my first thought, I gave her karma straight away. As well as coming up with the great idea she put so much effort into finding it again. I hope she knows how grateful we are.

Oh jkath, I am so sorry to hear about this. You put so much work into this, and all the signatures from those that participated. How very disappointing and mean spirited

Well, crap and half. Erik is a real worm!!! And a petty thief.

Kuddos to you, jkath, for all you hard work. You deserve a standing ovation from all of us here at DC.

Okay, everyone...for jkath!

Vera, if I remember correctly, money was put in by members from time to time to help defray the cost of shipping.

Even though ERIK emailed me and promised the apron was being sent,

I am so incredibly sorry to all of those who weren't able to participate.

Thank you to everyone for teaming up on this wonderful adventure.
All things considered, it enjoyed quite a long life. I guess I missed something. I didn't realize there was money being transferred as well. Well, I'm disappointed that I didn't get to participate, but I could donate a Le Cordon Bleu apron if you would like to start anew.

I guess Erik won't be hanging around here much any more, huh???

Three cheers to you, jkath, for the idea and the effort!
