Monday evening I was just sitting on my couch, half asleep when the phone rang. It was someone I didn't know, but I answered it anyway, and was glad I did. It was from Jennifer's guild, and I won the raffle quilt! I so needed a pick me up (working too many hours for too many days). I'll post pictures when it gets here. I'M SO EXCITED!!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that another Camp Cheerio person wins our Guild quilt - the drawing is in June.

My experience winning a quilt raffle was a little suspect to other members of the group. Several of us had put together a full sized quilt and had enough blocks left over for a lap-sized. On the day of the draw, I was asked to pull the ticket for the smaller quilt. How embarrassing was it that I drew my own name. But since I had bought several tickets, I figured I could keep it. Then a friend who also worked on the quilts drew for the big quilt. No, not me this time, but my daughter. There were some puzzled looks from the crowd!! But all legitimate and above board!!

Congratulations! What a wonderful surprise. Isn't it amazing how quilters, who have cranked out many of them, often do it for other people and are quite happy to win one for themselves. You appreciate the work a quilt takes. That tickles me.

Nannykins, my husband won a beautiful, intricately stitched by hand whole cloth quilt the last year his church's quilting circle raffled one off. Everyone was gushing how 'lucky' he was. Hah. I think he bought .........no, I KNOW he bought half of the tickets so they'd make their quota knowing it was going to a good cause and figuring even at the price he paid, if he won he would have gotten a quilt worth well more than his investment.
