Bittersweet




Today is the day that Ruby leaves for good. Yesterday, I went to the event venue where she'll be auctioned to someone who appreciates her (I hope). Tonight, the opening bid for the shawl begins at $400. Let's hope there's a fight!

Me, too! Take a hankie...it'll be sad to see her go - even to a good home.

Definitely a bittersweet moment. It will be interesting to see how much she raises

Ruby is just so beautiful. It's nice that you can send her out into the world and do good at the same time.

I had to read that twice! $400! Rudee that's wonderful. I don't know about a ruby - you're a diamond!!

A sad time but a good time...for a worthy cause.

Now that you've done one, just whip up another! Kidding.

Well, I have to add my WOW! Very impressive indeed, Rudee! But then, Ruby is an impressive beauty. I hope she goes for a bundle.

Happy weekend!

What a wonderful gift you have given. I hope the new owner knows how many hours went into finishing Ruby. She's a beauty.

It is bittersweet. Believe it or not I have been wondering where Ruby is or where she ended up. I hope she brings in a lot of money and I know the owners will appreciate her. She is just so beautiful.
