...karen & I finally managed to get together wednesday evening to draw for the quilt. we really wanted to do it the old fashioned way.
with slips of paper in a bowl. each $25 donated for our walk got one slip of paper in the bowl. there were 102 slips in total, representing the 32 donors and $2,600 raised.
karen drew (I took the pictures!) we were nervous. but felt good that no matter who was selected, it would be someone special.
...and the winner is...
we've traded emails - since dawn lives nearby, we'd really like to present the quilt in person. (you can imagine the scheduling difficulties this might pose, but we're hopeful we can work it out!)
many, many, many thanks to our friends and family for your generosity and support. we love you! - mary & karen
