Prize Two - The Triangle Quilt
Quilt size: 1300 x 1600mm
The first quilt that was started this year. Made by our original PP group. It was a very hard task I set them as each patch contained 64 triangles. That means that the whole quilt (not including the boarder) has 1250 little triangles, sewn on all 3 sides! What was I thinking?? But look at the very lovely job they all have done. I couldn't be prouder. Thank-you sewers! 
Prize Three - The Heart Quilt
Quilt size: 1250 x 1550mm
Made by many hands with much love, it was some sewers first time and some had their skills down pat. This quilt will not only keep you warm but add lots of happy love to any room or couch. 
Prize Four - Kitty Came Home Clutch
Donated by the very lovely Katrina Weber of Kitty Came Home. Whoever is lucky enough to be drawn out for prize four will take home this very gorgeous KCH Japanese Print Clutch. Cut from vintage tablecloth! Too cute! I hope my sister wins this so I can steal it! 
Prize Five - Not Today Milk Crate Cushions
Donated by no other then the generous Gemma Patford of Not Today. The winner of this prize will take home a set of four absolutely awesome Milk Crate Cushions. Perfect for perching on, with a cold drink in hand, on summer days in the back garden. Those hot days that we are all looking very fondly towards (especially on a cold rainy day like today!). 

Prize Six - Pink Snow Flakes Velvet Verity the Owl
Donated by Miss Laura Mah of Pink Snow Flakes. The lucky lady or gent who is drawn as the winner for prize six will take home little Velvet Verity the Owl to love and cherish. As her foster mother it will be hard to say goodbye, but i know she will find another nice cosy home to nest in. 
So far we have raised.... $2,245! That is so many little $2 tickets! Only four sleeps until the raffle night! Ohhhhhh my goodness!
