Lucky Me at Quilt Guild!

Well, first thing I'll admit is that I didn't want to sell tickets and planned on just writing a check for our guild's "Harlem Renaissance"-themed quilt this year. I'm just not one of those go out and sell things types. The raffle coordinator convinced me to go ahead and put in for it and put my stubs in anyway, bring the check next month. We only do these once a year at the big holiday party, so it's a pretty big deal. So, when the grandson of one the member's pulled my name, I leapt to my feet jumping. I never win anything at drawings, so this was amazing!!

The blocks are pretty cool and feature notables like Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston and places like the Savoy and the Cotton Club.

Look what went home with me!!!!!!!!! Lucky lucky me!!!
