giveaway: we have a winner!

Due to some comment happy-people, ahem, I couldn't go about this giveaway the way most do. With their fancy "random number generators" and such. Nope, we got a little old fashioned and pulled out the pen and paper.

So for those who would like to know that the contest was as fair as possible, we've documented the process...

All twenty names were painstaking written onto perfectly cut 1x2 inch pieces of paper. (That gave each you a 5% chance in case you like math.)

I interrupted Jim and Roxy in the middle of their movie to act as an impartial third party.

And the winner is... Susie who said, "WOW what a great quilt!! It has such Stella colors :-) You do such a great job and just whip them out with such ease. Count me in!!" Susie is the faithful mother of Crystal, a.k.a. the Circus, mother-in-law of of Jesse over at Muthering Heights, and has prayed our own little family through many separations, a deployment, and many years of wanting a baby. I couldn't be more thrilled to send this quilt to her!

Have a great weekend, all! See you on Monday.

I keep clicking back to your blog to see if that photo with "Susie" has changed to "Abigail" :)


But I did break down & buy a grounding system for my daughter's grey polyester airline-grade blood-curdling ion-accelerator "blanky".

Quite fascinating actually. Two car-battery type cables are connected to a bank of 55-gallon drums of oil which act as hi-Q capacitors to store the static charge from her polyester blanket.

I thought it odd at first but not now since we've been able to run our clothes dryer of that thing!

Enjoy the TLC quilt Mrs Susie! :)
