The week is certainly rolling by, but you still have plenty of time to bid on those auctions! While most auctions have reached extremely generous amounts or raffle entries, there are still plenty out there that need your love. Remember, the whole purpose of this project is to raise money for those who have been affected by the devastating floods in Queensland - winning an auction or a raffle is just a bonus!
You may, for example, come across a really cute skirt up for auction but not have a little girl yourself. Don't let that stop you from placing a bid - I'm sure you have a niece or granddaughter or friend with a little girl who would love it for their next birthday or Christmas. Same goes for all of the auctions...if you don't want to keep the prize for yourself, give it to a friend for their birthday!
Also, please don't underestimate the value of a quilt. Until you have actually made one for yourself, you have no idea how many hours it takes to put together. Seriously, it takes me about 6 months to finish a quilt ;) Not to mention the money involved, quilting is not a cheap craft (just don't tell your husband that!) These women who are so lovingly donating quilts for auction have spent days and days painstakingly cutting, piecing, quilting and binding these beauties.
Enjoy Thursday's Showcase...
