Your kidding me...... RIGHT?

Align Center Wow I'm not even sure if I can put into word's how I am feeling at this moment, disappointment to say the least. Wow!!!! I can't believe people can be so stupid!! Here's the story... we donated this quilt to a local cancer institute They held a women's golf outing and a silent auction I put a tag on this quilt before it went out the door pinned it to the quilt and put it in a zippered bag. It was to go for NO LESS than $400 yes that is four Hundred dollars. I got an email today saying that it went for forty dollars, YES that is $40 dollars. I emailed the lady back and ask her if that was a typo cause it had to be Right? LOL NO it only went for forty dollars. HMMMMM. Wow!! You are kidding me right? Because you did not just sale a quilt that several woman from a quilt group put lots of time and money into this quilt, the back fabric alone was more a
than forty dollars. WOW! I'm very impressed with the idiotsy not sure if that is a word but.... oh well . Well one thing is for sure the next quilt we donate WILL NOT be going to this foundation again. Not worth my time or money. If we would have just give them the money that we all put into it it would have been a lot more of a donation and NO time involved, None, Nada, zero, zilch. get the picture. Hell I would have givin them forty for it and kept it for me. Wow! I still am having trouble wrapping my brain around this.

Piggy Purse

This is a purse I made for my sister's 30th birthday! She really loves PIG"S and apparently she likes CHICK'S too, because when I gave it to her she went Ga Ga over the chicks as well as the pig's. I guess I should have thrown some little Lamb's in there as well.
It did not turn out quite like I hoped but all in all it was OK. Not bad for my first one, I guess I will get better at it. Any way there is another thing off of my to do list. I just keep adding to the to do list."sigh"
