    My quilt was 1st prize in the raffle. 2nd prize was a bottle of wine. I overheard a ticket buyer saying that she hoped she won 2nd prize.

    Not sure why someone would rather a bottle of wine over a handmade quilt. I know I would love the quilt, wine a couple of glasses and it is a done deal. I am sure your quilt was lovely!

    Awww, that's rough! The wine would be gone in a night or two. Your quilt could be cuddled for years and years. Some people just don't get it. We do though! I would have been thrilled to win first prize!

    Perhaps rather than taking the negative perspective, you could think she was just making a joke about wanting a bottle of wine. I don't even drink, but still make tongue in cheek comments about winning alcohol in raffles.

    Before my grandma got really bad. She would make dumb comments like these and my sister and I would just quickly walk away so noone would know we were with her. She didn't know what she was saying or how much it would hurt, but it sure was embarassing for us.

    Ouch! I sure hope it wasn't the person who won your quilt.
