WHO WON THE "THE STITCH IN TIME" ROOMBOX?

 

Everyone was hoping that they had the winning ticket for the "Stitch In Time" room box, made by local artisan, miniaturist and friend, Carole Sussex.  Well there could only be one lucky winner.  When the winning ticket was drawn on December 20th it was Annie Fuller.  When answering the call from us she was so excited. "I never win anything..." She picked up the roombox on Christmas Eve to share with her big family who would be visiting.   Annie has been involved with miniatures for 15 years and shares the love of them with her daughter.  In the past she has made 3 dollhouses, electrified and finished them.  One was gifted to a 7 year old.  Her last project was a travel trailer. On one of her MMW outings she found an outhouse (complete with occupant) reminiscent of the one they once had up north. Complaining there were no bathroom facilities at the trailer, her husband's uncle dragged an old outhouse to the lot and propped it up. If you know Annie, you can just picture this.  She thought "I'll show him" and proceeded to turn it into an "out powder room" complete with pink curtains.  Annie is quite a seamstress and loved every detail of the "Stitch in Time" room box.  When her name was drawn we felt it was a "perfect fit".  Congratulations Annie.
