FLOOD RELIEF RAFFLE WINNER

Well I discussed it with Mr random.org and he came up with a number for me.

I had 108 tickets sold and I was so happy to be able to help in that small way along with donating myself of course.

So who is the winner you ask.

It was random number 22 who is Samelia's Mum.  I will be contacting her tonight to tell her the good news.  Go and check out her blog, she does the most amazing raw edge applique and has recently done a tutorial on a very cute mug rug.

A huge thank you to Toni of Make It Perfect who organised all the lists for Auctions and Raffles.  I can't wait to see how much money was raised.

And lastly a huge thank you to everyone who bid and donated and just got involved in this wonderful online event.

They still have a long way to go for recovery up in Queensland but hopefully our efforts helped a bit.

Please also spare a thought for the town in Victoria who are now suffering flooding.

Our wonderful country really is a mystery to us but it just goes to show, you cannot fight Mother Nature, you can prepare for what you think she may throw your way but you just never know what it's going to be.

Well done with your fundraising efforts. I am sure those needing help will appreciate it!

I sure know what you mean about preparing as much as you can. We have spent the whole Christmas holidays at home because of flooding. Lucky we have plenty to do LOL
