Well my SAGA chapter's annual auction was yesterday. It was a great time, we raised a lot of money, had some great food, laughed and caught up with old friends while meeting some new ones. One of the things our auction had to offer was this sweet receiving blanket made by one of our members. I just love it. The top photo shows three of the four corners at once. I wasn't clever enough to figure out how to take a photo of all four at one time. Maybe another day. Each of the four corners follow below.
Don't you wonder what this wee bear is thinking as he whiles away the afternoon watching the honeybees?
Oh and here he has followed the honeybee to the daisy patch. Careful wee bear, better not get too close!
He is a young wee bear and needed to rest again when he found this field of forget-me-knots. Taking in all he sees.
"Where did all the honeybees go?" he ponders.
This precious cotton receiving blanket may not ever be used, it just makes my heart sing, and that is enough for me. The member that stitched it is so lovely and does such beautiful work. She didn't think it was all that much, but I just love it. The sweet simplicity of it just makes me sigh.
And speaking of the auction dear readers, those who graciously bought raffle tickets for the beautiful doll dress quilt, sadly you did not win. Neither did I. The mom of one of member's quilted the quilt and dog gone it, if she didn't win it as well! Not sure what voodoo spell she was casting as she stitched, but it worked. If you met her though you would be glad. She gets so tickled and was as pleased as punch when she took that quilt home.
Thank you to so many who bought raffle tickets. Our chapter will use the proceeds to bring in teachers and advance our Wee Care project. Bless you.
