Tea and Auction

The Orange Grove Quilter's Guild held their Tea and Auction today. And, it was a wonderful event. They had 87 quilts to auction (Lyn Mann was the auctioneer and a very good one at that), numerous baskets for rafle (yours truly won one) and a very tasteful guild boutique (I think some of it may have found its way home with me). In addition to the fun of out bidding each other for your favorite quilt, the "Tea" part of it was very nice: great small sandwiches, scones, and many small bite-size desserts. I didn't get an opportunity to bid because I worked in the pick up room and helped collect payments for the quilts. It sure seemed like a successful day for the guild to me.

Thanks for visiting. Hope to see you soon.
