A different winner - can you believe it???
Well, I've never seen this happen before - but there is a different winner for the quilt. Judith Waliston of North Carolina contacted me almost immediately after I posted the winning names in the previous post (it was quite late in N. Carolina but she was anxiously awaiting this post).
Judith turned down the prize - she said because of her living conditions changing so much recently (I agreed not to give details - it is an extremely private matter) that she wasn't in a position to be in possession of the quilt. She is such a gracious and generous lady, and this is such an unexpected turn of events - but we agreed, after several emails back and forth, that we would draw another name for the quilt. Judith picked the number for us, how very sweet of her. She is excited to learn who the new winner is.
So here is the name - another Judith - can you believe it ? But this one dropped the TH off her name and goes by Judi. That's right - Judi - ummmm, Judi who? Judi Shipley - of WA - # 1389.
Congrats Judi - I'll be shipping the quilt off as soon as possible - hope you enjoy it - we certainly have. It is Don's favorite quilt of all time - and I think mine too - since it helped us through this hard time.
Judith W. could use all the prayers and good thoughts you can send right now in her situation. It is not dangerous - but very serious and she has been so kind through all this.
Thanks again to all who donated - cash and prizes - we will always remember the joy and friendship you have all brought to us.
If you haven't seen the winners of the other prizes - please read the previous post. Thanks again.
