A Quilt {made by me} that YOU can own!

We are busy trying to raise money for a bunch of children (including Reuben)
to go to Timaru to compete in the Independence Games.
The Independence Games are for young people with disabilites
to develop their sporting abilities. It's awesome, really it is.

I've made this quilt and Shenleigh has quilted it and we are accepting donations
for a chance to win it. It's $2 an entry and I'll put a paypal link at the bottom for you.

I know that lots of you read my blog because you like seeing what I make,
and I'm hoping you will support me by making a donation.


It's a really lovely quilt and it measures 175 x 175 cm.


The colours are probably just a little bit brighter than the pictures show.

Can you see the beautiful birds that Shenleigh quilted on it?

Please support Reuben and his friends,
and donate $2 for an opportunity to win this quilt.
 You can enter as many times as you like.


{edited: now closed. Thanks so much for all your generous donations. We have to collated the tickets sold by other families and then I will contact the winner} 

(Ps My friend Nin is collecting the donations for me because I don't have a merchant account)
