Money raised - auction winner and giveaway winner announced!

Thank you everybody who helped in the Worlds Biggest Mothers Day Package fundraiser! 
Many of you bought patterns for ~Beauty Is Timeless~, and I know many more donated directly to the relief fund yourselves. Thank you!!
The winner of the kit to make a ~Beauty Is Timeless~ cushion was chosen by the random generator, and it is one of Dawn's Tuesday ladies!!
Dawn bought 4 patterns on behalf of her Tuesday ladies sewing group, so they may have to have their own 'mini-draw' tomorrow! :-) 

The silent auction for my cushion was won by Fiona, from Peaceful Threads blog.  She bid $100! I'll be posting the cushion off to her this week. Thank you so much, Fiona!!

The total raised was $286!! This bought us 11 bundles of Clean Delivery Kits - in total 110 pregnant women in Somalia will be given a Clean Delivery Kit, ensuring their babies a healthier start in life, and themselves a greatly reduced risk of infection after delivery.

 May God bless those mothers and their infants.
