    We have LUCKY winner in our group

    Remember those raffle tickets I was selling while we were together? We had the drawing today and I got to tell a story about the quilt and how I sold tickets all over the place. Our speaker today was Elizabeth Burns, the "blind quilter". She lost her vision following a near fatal car accident in 1988. Got married in 1998 and started quilting in 2000. First by hand and then by machine. She pulled 2 tickets out and I made her take them apart and give me just one. I had a smile on my face when she handed it to because I recognized it as one that I sold while I was with you. After we had cleaned up the room we were meeting in I got my phone and had the privilege of calling Texas. After I explained who I was when she answered the phone I got to tell Mary Willyerd that she was our winner and the quilt will go out by Fed Ex this coming week.

    Thank you to all that did buy tickets. Our final dollar count is over $2400.

      In the group you have to go to the main group page to upload pcs, you can't add them in the group threads (at least not easily).

      Before you speak,
      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?
