So, y’all have heard of Dolly Parton, right? Mmmmm Hmmmm. Well, you may not know that she has a literacy campaign to help put books in the hands of children.
My mom quilted a blanket (#30 in the photos and shown to the right) in the Brown Bear, Brown Bear theme for the local Ionia County chapter of Imagination Library on March 31st. You could win an heirloom quilt! 36 tickets will be drawn and the winners get to pick the quilt of their choice (in the order their ticket was drawn).
If you’d like to buy tickets to enter, I’ll pick up the tickets in your name and you can paypal me or what-ev-ah. They are $5 a piece or $30 for 10. Here’s a link to the photos of all the quilts that will be available to the winners: Brown Bear Quilt Raffle

No telling 🙂 I mean, it could change… but I doubt it.
I will, however, open up the comments for name guesses- FIRST name for each guesser. If anyone guesses the correct first letter of the actual name given on March 11th, you shall win a TexasNorth organic market bag. Mmm Hmmm. Ties will be broken by drawing a name out of the hat. If anyone guesses the actual name, well, then I’ll just have to sign you up for the Psychic Network.
Just for good fun, let’s see where you stand on SuperKid’s gender:
