WELL, our Midnight Garden is gone.  BOOHOO!  Michelle Anderson of Wylie, TX was the winner and I'm sure she has THE special place for our beautiful quilt.   It was so much fun being involved with this raffle quilt and I just want to say one more BIG thank you to Cindy Tubb for everything she did with the ticket sales, bookkeeping, sitter sign-ups and just basically keeping track of everything.  Also one more shout of thanks to all the gals who stitched on the quilt and to Janet for a fantastic job of machine quilting.
