Last year I won big. I mean BIG! Like over 50% of the baskets and over $200! Jessie won the other half of the baskets but she was supporting a Quilting Husband as well. Frank won’t pick up a needle or rotary cutter. So it looked way worse for me.
I resolved not to win as much this year so my take was a bit smaller. But I did get a few interesting things.
At 2 of my 3 guilds we have a birthday table. During your birthday month you bring in a small item. They sell raffle tickets for 25 Cents each and I usually purchase $2 worth each month. So I never ever ever win anything!
At the Big Auction at River City last night I purchased 10 $1 tickets and dropped them into ten different baskets. Whereupon I won 5 of those items! I got two fabric shopping bags with two pkgs of batting each, A red/white/blue tin of FQs and a group of 13 FQs tied in a ribbon. And I won one of the red/white/blue baskets from the silent auction for $14. It has a pattern, about 6 yards of red and red stripe fabrics, and 2 yards of blue and white stripe fabric, and about 4 other red and blue fat quarters. The box is a thread box that will hold about 15 spools! Can't beat that with a stick!
The Remember Me Guild Auction will be when I am on the cruise! And I was so hoping to be able to go to that one.
