This year’s raffle quilt
Every year we raffle off a quilt that we made in order to raise money for the Historical Village. This year’s is a beauty but than I probably always think that. But no – truly – this year’s is amazing. Not just the colors but the amount of stitching. We like taking it out from the cupboard to show visitors. Even though we made it, we still marvel at the quality and quantity of the work. So now we are selling raffle tickets for this quilt and next summer at the Lincoln County Fair someone will win it. It could be you. Perhaps it seems too early in the game to be buying raffle tickets though for something that you might not own until next summer but think of it as an installment plan. If every month between now and late August you bought ten tickets, you would have one hundred chances to win. One hundred! And you wouldn’t hardly think about the money because its just $10/month and really that’s about three of those fancy coffee drinks. Wouldn’t you rather be snuggled up beneath this wondrous quilt than buzzed out on caffeine?
