Quilt & Fabric Winners



Comment number 226 wins the fabric bundle from Fabric Shoppe . . . congratulations  Andi!!



 

Comment 171 wins the quilt from me. . . congratulations Elissa!!  

In the interest of full disclosure, I was very excited to see both Andi and Elissa's names as I was counting down . . . and eliminating accidental repeat comments, etc  . . . because although I don't know either lady in real life, I have come to know them both a bit by interacting with them via blog land.

Coincidence?  That each of the winners are people that I recognize from blog land?  I dare say I recognized nearly all of the names as I counted down to numbers 226 and 171.

I am pleased that the fabric and quilt are going to friends.  Because you see no matter who the random integer generator picked, be it number 1 or number 449, the fabric and quilt would be going to friends.

For really, that is what this is all about for me.  Giving something  back to those people . . .  YOU PEOPLE . . . that  give me so much by way of inspiration, encouragement and friendship on a daily basis.

Thank you.

And goodnight.

Your words are very sweet. It really is nice to have blogland friends. Friends who 'get' what you do and why you do it.
And the timing couldn't be better for me.
I have just started a 6 month fabric buying diet so winning such lovely fabrics is a mega bonus!!
Thanks again,
Andi :-)

Love the combo of salty and sweet...my sister use to make me chocolate covered pretzels by hand for Christmas every year :0).....it was the highlight of the holiday for me.
Now I know I should stay away from those M&M's but what are the chances I will?

Happy sewing
