I won for someone else!!!!

OMG I am so happy..........I just popped in this morning to see how Nicolette was going with her pink ribbon quilt.............the story behind this quilt is that she decided to make one and give away to someone with or healing from breast cancer...............
Now to decide who this was going to go to you had to nominate someone to receive the quilt and Nicolette would draw a winner (don't know how she did that - they would all be deserving)

Instantly a lady in my town who I have a little to do with and thought had amazing positive attitude to her situation came to mind and I nominated her.................anyway I have won the quilt and the bit I didn't realise is that I get a little prezzies also...........

Along the way Nicolette has taken suggestions and she has drawn all the applique for the quilt.........she is quilt (I mean quite) an artist I think they are the cutest little pics (and I told her this)........So yesterday when she had a post with some more material I thought she was getting closer to showing a finished top and today I wake up and find she has done the draw and it is coming all the way from the Netherlands to OZ as soon as Nicolette gets it quilts and bound (I could do the binding Nicolette)

You must go and see the quilt here it is gorgeous..........
THANKYOU Nicolette

....it was by Nicolette going pink that I also went pink for October................ go and check your breasts and make sure they are okay....

  1. Hi Donna, that is such a sweet post. How did I draw a winner? You wouldn’t believe. I had several people draw a name and 5 out of 5 times, your name was drawn! It’s meant to be!!!
