I was referring to the new quilt I scored at our church's auction over the weekend - a fundraiser for our Senior High Groups Mission trip to Guatemala this summer.
Our senior high goes on a Mission trip every year, with a rotating service theme: rural, urban, Native American and International.
Truth be told, I coveted the quilt then and purchased more than one ticket (ok, maybe more like 10 raffle tickets) and, obviously didn't win it!
The woman who WAS the lucky winner- also a friend of mine - donated it back to the group this year so they could put it in the silent auction last night... and I FINALLY had my opportunity!
Despite a fierce competition, I emerged the victor - and the quilt is now home on my guest bed.
Kim (the quilter) also showed the kids and Leaders how to make a square and she then put together their offerings for this years quilt - -
I'm JUST fine with the one I got for a mere pittance - well, comparatively.
Total win/win -
for me and our kids
in Senior High!
