I saved posting this until today being the Fourth of July and American Independence Day.
This was an unexpected surprise raffle that was bought over by one of the people attending the festival having been previously put together by some generous, kind and very thoughtful Sasha Collectors (includimg many that couldn’t make it to the festival.)
The following photos show Cora, now named Amelia, with her truly fabulous wardrobe to cover every occassion, eventuality and need.
Wishing mine was as versitile!
On one of the corners of the display there was a map on which was written the names of these contributers and where they live. I have tried to make a list here (but there might be one or two wrongly spelt names and for which I apologise in advance.)
Jean Jenson and Sally Christopher from Washington. Monica Jarpog from Minnesota. Tina Gross from Michigan. Charla McQuirre-Neal and Izzy Sanucci from Ilinois. Karen Warnake. Carmen Murphy, Ann Chandler, Phyllis Godeke, Carolyn Campbell and Meg Richardson. Linda Hord from Texas. Pat Pellerito. Erica Mcleod from New Zealand. Holly Marano, Jackie Kraemer, Laura Linberg, Karen Watson, Marti Murphy and Judy Pike all from Arizona and Millie Dingham who travels so no fixed abode.
I can see a pair of Jean Jenson’s superb shoes here plus a delightful dress by Tina Gross with her accompanying trade mark of a soft toy.
Super cowboy outfit for those Rodeos and Square Dances.
These white boots look to me like another of JJ’s contributions.
Very smart best navy wool coat and hat outfit and knitted skirt and top and more JJ shoes to compliment these clothes.
I’m pretty certain that the white smocked blouse and gingham skirt is by Millie Dingham.
Fabulous barbeque. (I have a black one but mine is slightly taller in height.)
Great Tommy Hilfiger track suit and the more formal and dressy white dress with the red /white trim.
Super named tote bag. Love the ‘squared’ dress that she is wearing.
Three pairs of beautifully knitted socks!
Great beach set and very trendy necklace.
Fantastic quilt. Super blazer and skirt set too. Gosh, yet more of JJ’s shoes and handknitted socks.
This marvellous raffle was won by Laura Horner from Devon. Lucky, lucky her!
Our thanks to everyone involved for this superb raffle.
(Have left some letters in above the photos so that I can easily add any info. that comes in afterwards.)
