  1. I agree with you Linne, my philosophy is now (hasn’t always been mind you πŸ˜‰ ) that what is meant to happen to you (good or bad) is going to happen to you. If you are meant to win something, you will and no amount of knocking on wood or rubbing your right hand or any other supersicious stuff or buying 400 lottery tickets is going to make any difference. I no longer have to “get there first” or “QUICK I MIGHT MISS OUT”… if there is something there that I am meant to have, it will just “be” there for me :). I was secretly dreading winning this gorgeous quilt if I am honest. I could imagine Earl’s eyes lighting up and the quilt never seeing the light of day ever again just in case he decided to get up close and personal with that inquisitive little beak of his ;). Well done to Patti Gorman, to Pam Stahl for her wonderful generosity and to you for yours. Spreading the love around the world is an amazing thing Linne and you are most certainly doing your bit πŸ™‚

    • I completely agree on all fronts. It would have been a sore temptation for our piddling pussycat or muddy footed kids. Still, it would have been lovely.
      And yes, the universe will provide if she wants you to have something. πŸ™‚

      • I think the only solution for those of you with younger children would have been to suspend it on the ceiling of your bedroom for a few years . . .

      • Yeah, mine would have, too! And found a way to get it down! My oldest stood at 7 mo, walked at 8 mo, ran at 9 mo and was climbing quite well before he was a year old. My youngest did all that a month earlier . . . funny how I have always loved babies and sitting around with one snoozing on my chest. Not much chance for that with my boys! I used to say it felt like I’d always had boys, but not babies! But I walked at 9 mo (although the next sib waited ’til he was 18 mo!! go figure!), so I likely have only myself to blame . . .

      • Jas stood at 10m, crawled 3 days later (he had been commando crawling) walked 12.5m. Allegra was much later n didn’t walk til around 15m I think. My MIL had come to visit for her 1st birthday (Allegra’s birthday that is πŸ˜‰ ) and had walked everywhere with her holding her hands. She then expected me to do the same but I was 7 weeks pregnant at Allegra’s birthday and sick as a dog (virus) and with nausea and exhaustion I couldn’t walk everywhere with her. She’d lost her confidence. Orik walked before his 1st birthday. Jas was the most challenging though. I caught him 3 rows up climbing our wine rack once. He was about 11m I think. He climbed the couch then onto the kitchen bench once too whilst I sorted out a parcel delivery. Orik however grabbed the breadknife off the bench by the blade the other day. 😦 They are such cheeky devils into EVERYTHING!
        Orik has been the fall asleep on you bubba though.

    • No worries Fran, I would have gladly “looked after” it for you πŸ˜€
      Well done on this raffle, Linne, such an innovative idea, and for letting us in on helping.

      • It was lots of fun, Kym. I’m so glad the goal was reached! Nice to know we all played a wee part in getting it there, isn’t it? I never thought of offering to ‘look after it’ for any of you ‘down under’ . . . I could have offered to deliver it in person once the kidlets were grown . . . πŸ˜›

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading your comments. ~ Linne
