Yesterday I attended a regional meeting of SAQA.  At the last couple of meetings we have had a raffle of items that members have contributed from their stash. I bought three tickets for a whopping three dollars and I was one of the lucky winners.  Each winner got to choose from what had been assembled into groups.  The pink and red of the buttons appealed to me and I took the rest of the bundle without really examining it until I got home and was so pleasantly surprised by what was in it.

First those pink and red buttons.  Not sure what I will do with them, but they just made me smile.

These three beautiful hand made cards were made by Barbara Adams.  Each one was quilted and sewn onto the card with a button hole stitch and came with a matching envelope.  The one on the far right is made of hand dyed fabric from Ghana.  They will be very hard to part with.

These lovely Thank You cards, a whole box of them, are made from an original work of art, Blood Iris, by Kate Themel.

And lastly this fun collection of sequins and a cute pink polka dot scarf.
