Sold For...A Lot of Money!

Once again the MCC Sale was fabulous--good food, great people, and quilts! After my tri-tip sandwich, tacos, pie, homemade ice cream, and fritters, I think I have had enough food to eat for the weekend. (Sadly, there was no borscht this year.) We had some new callers at the auction and some new auctioneers, but our group kept the same group of seats we've have for several years. I'm not entirely sure if I would be able to feel like I was at the MCC Auction from a different vantage point. My friend Cindy Wiens donated a beautiful quilt this year that went too far out of my price range for me to have any hope of getting it. Each block has so many tiny pieces that it's amazing to look at up close. I took enough pictures to enjoy even though the quilt went home with someone else.
I can't wait to hear how much the auction raised for charity. One of my other favorites was the highest priced quilt this year. I tried to bid, but the bidding was so fast and furious that I wasn't fast enough. The workmanship on it was wonderful--and much more intricate than I have time for right now! Another great MCC the date so you can come next year.

That was quite a diverse meal you had - LOL

I've never been to an auction ~ it sounds like a great time and for a good cause!

Wowza....when the food is listed out like that it seems almost gluttonous...But very exciting about the quilts and sorry you didn't get your favorites!
