My trusty assistant, Tallulah Mae, would like to help me announce the winners of the oh-so-fun Sew Mama Sew giveaway! There were two prize packages (sewing goodies and knitting stuff) up for grabs. And because I just couldn't choose only one winner out of the very sweet comments everyone left, I picked three names out of the comments for each entry. The first name picked gets the stuff (and then some) pictured in the original posts; the other two folks will get padded envelopes filled with a few other sewing/knitting things. (All of the numbers were chosen by Random.org, NOT picked out of a hat by Miss Mae; everyone has been notified by email that they've won, but if I don't hear from the winners by Sunday morning, I will do a redraw.)
SO: Above we have the winners of the sewing prize: Serena is the lucky winner. Yay! Emma and AudreyPawdrey (oopsy on the writing of AudreyPawdrey below, sorry!) will also get some goodies.The knitting "grand prize" winner is the blogger at Painting4Him, and I'll also be sending knitting goodies to Tatgurl and Beetle.One blogger who participated in this giveaway summed up my feelings exactly when she wrote that this a rather bittersweet experience: while it was so fun to read comments and visit inspiring new blogs, it's actually a bummer to not be able to give something to everyone who stopped by--really, if postage were not as high as it is, I'd try to give everyone who commented a little sumthin' sumthin'. Alas, I cannot give you all a gift, but I do give you my thanks for playing along...I plan to try to respond to all comments and/or visit everyone's blog in the coming days. I really appreciate everyone chiming in on my Etsy merch, too...it's nice to get a better sense about what people liked in my shop.
And you can see that my assistant is long suffering and must put up with quite a lot for her kibble! The things I make her do! Like sitting. In the shade. For one minute. Poor thing.
