Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Quilt Giveaway Winners!!!!!

Hi, all!

Hooray, it's finally Friday!!!!  Time to do some whooping!!!  I am completely exhausted - it's been a very long two weeks - but all of the fundraising events are over now, so things will slow down a little bit (ha!).  I know you are all anxious to know how the bunco party went last night.  (ha! but you are a captive audience!)  We raised $625 and had a whole lot of fun, and of course, I forgot to take any pictures!  But that's a great big whoop for my daughter and I, and I think we'll be doing it again sometime.

So now, let's get on to the important stuff!  The Christmas in Juy quilt giveaway/raffle was a complete and total success - by 5 pm last night, we had raised a total of….


Isn't that amazing???  When we started this, we couldn't imagine raising that much money.  As the donations rose, we added another quilt at every $500 mark.  Around 9 am Thursday, we were at $1500.  By 3 pm we were at $2000…. and by 5 pm we had passed $2500!  And you know what that means - it's no longer just four winners, it's six!!!  Two of those quilts still need to be made, but I promise to have them done in the next week or so.  

Before we announce the winners, though, I want to tell you how very much I appreciate each and every one of you! You have all supported this effort tirelessly in so many ways, and I wish I had a quilt to give every one of you, or could at least see you in person and give you a huge hug!!  Thank you so very much!!

And now, without further ado, here are the winners!!

Kim Taylor is the winner of Nathanael's Ladder!

Selina Kidney is the winner of A Quick Trick Block Stack!!

Robin Landes is the winner of Criss Cross Applesauce!!!

  10. I am so glad that you were able to raise that much money!!! If you wouldn't mind sharing, how much does your daughter's family have left to raise? If and when they raise the remainder, can they get Nathaniel, or are there other things they're waiting for? It's been a wonderful excitement for me to follow along with your family; don't ever worry that you are boring us with it!
