Thank you all for sharing your inspiration for joining the blogging world, or just simply enjoying blogland--it was fun to read all your different stories. I was not very surprised that Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville is an oft visited place--she's a very positive and dynamic force--a quilter who seldom rests!
As promised, the entries were printed out and the winner was drawn by someone with opposable thumbs--in this case, my DH Grant. And the winner is....
"Congratulations on 4 years Annie! Does that seem to have gone fast? My
youngest child turns 4 on the 19th of Feb and that sure has gone fast
for me! I started reading blogs after I'd been to a workshop with
Melanie McNeice of Melly and Me."
Oh, yes, it has gone by fast, Sarah! Sarah hails from South Australia, according to her Blogger profile, but doesn't seem to have a blog of her own listed. I'll send off an email and find out which of the three binding choices she prefers so the prizes can soon travel Down Under. Wish I were going with that package!
I'm also grateful for all the kind words in your comments regarding my blog, and hope to continue to provide many more posts that entertain and enliven this great blogland. Thank you, dear readers!
