We checked our mailbox after returning home from a recent trip and found this interesting package.
While we didn’t win the Grand prize trip to Alaska or one of the twenty $100 shop hop gift certificates for completing all of the shops on the 2016 Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop or any of the regional drawings from several of the sections, we did get this prize for finishing the state. Just in case you missed it, click here and then click here to read about our adventurous last day on the hop.
My husband and I were among the 99 people who traveled around the entire state of Minnesota July 29-August 14, 2016 visiting ALL of the 72 participating shops. Those were pretty good odds to win the big trip but just not good enough for us. My husband reminded me that winning wasn’t the focus of the trip. He was right but it sure would have been fun.
What I Learned Today:
- The 2017 Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop is only about 9 months away (July 28-August 18, 2017).
- I better start sewing faster to justify needing to go on it again.
- Winning is fun but losing is disappointing.
- I have many good memories from our 2016 Quilt MN Shop Hop trip and that’s the best prize of all.
Question: What have you won or lost recently?
