I often complain that I don't win anything. And I guess that I have to take that back. However, I will tell you that I put more money in the blank pots at the raffle table than the others did so that may have skewed the odds a bit.
We had a wonderful program on the different types of applique. Connie had a lot f samples and fun stuff that she had appliqued. It was a really nice overview of the ways to do the stitches, samples of the stitches and the stabilizers available.
Someone had donated a ton (maybe 15) of these very simple applique patterns. And I had my eye on a couple. So I brought out the big guns; my five dollar bill!
I usually donate $2 at each meeting to the raffle table. Just to give the guild some money each month. And I go to 4 guilds, so that can add up. But when there is a special thing I want, I add dollars!
So out of the 15 patterns, I came home with 4 of them!!!! Can you believe that????? Me???
I can see the Safari pattern as a baby quilt for Carrie's baby should she ever have one. And for some reason I thought of my cousin Karen when I saw those fabulous Cows!
And the Horses, well, they are horses after all! And maybe my sister in law, if I decide do quilts for them again, the Farmyard. She has a pot bellied pig and i always give her a pig of some sort.
I guess I can't complain for a while! And I will be busy pulling backgrounds for a million quilt blocks.
