Silent Auction Winners/Computer Problems

Hi guys...I am so sorry about not announcing who won our little silent auction until now. I had some major computer problems. My entire blog disappeared for a bit, then it came back, but completely messed up, so it took me some major time to figure out what happened...well, I still dont know what happened, but I redid everything, but it took every spare minute of my time the last 2 days, so no rug hooking lesson until tomorrow or Tuesday. I do have more wool to list and I promise that will be up tomorrow, unless there's a catastrophe.

OK, on to the silent auction winners. I am happy to announce that the winners of the wool for penny rugs are Marie from Old Lady Morgan Primitives who bid $21.00 and Sabrina from Fallining Leaf Woodworkers & Primitives who bid 15.00. Thanks for playing ladies.

I just love America where capilatism and the free markets really do work so well. I had NO idea how much to charge (if some of you hadn't asked, I wouldnt have even know anyone would want my wool scraps) and so by playing our little silent auction game, I let the market dictate the price ! Could there be a better example of how our system works...basic supply and demand. No stimulus needed !

Okay, okay, that's the last bit of any type of politics you will's just exciting to see it happen right in my own life. Hubby's the one who actually saw it that way...I was just doing the happy dance when he got home and said "You are never going to believe what those pieces of wool sold for honey"...He didnt think anyone would even place a bid, but I got several and was just dancing all over the house I was so excited. Of course, as much as I adore the hubs (and you all know I am over the moon for the man), it is so extremely rewarding to be RIGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!! Although I must admit, he is ALWAYS my biggest fan, but he IS right so often it gets annoying.

Okay, seriously, I will stop now. But you gotta admit, if you were me, you would have been dancing too.

So, thanks ladies. I will be emailing you soon.

Well, it is getting late, the hubs is coming to bed and I am going to relax...I had the inlaws over the game and the Steelers lost BIGTIME, so everyone was grumpy, but they were still hungry, so I am tired.

Until next time,
Grace to you,


  1. Glad your little auction-ma-thing worked out so well - and congrats to the lucky winners! (And gladder still you could be RIGHT!) ;o) Bummer 'bout the 'puter problems...argh - can't live with them and can't live without them! Hope you had a great day - I KNOW you had yummy eats!! Happy Tomorrow! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  2. Hi Margie, first of all thanks for coming up with the silent auction idea.It was fun and I'm glad it worked out so well for you. I'm certain the ladies will be happy with their new stash.
    Our neighbors are big time Steeler's fans and are none too happy either. Here in Cleveland we have The Browns and once again they found a way to lose! You have a good day :)
