First off, can I just say "WOWZERS!!!!" Huge thanks for all the lovely comments I've had regarding the giveway. and if you are a new follower, thanks too for adding me to your probably long reading list. I'm just sorry I didn't get a chance to answer everyone personally.
The sewing machine has been running really hot this week but unfortunately I can't share much as most of it is destined for under the tree. Instead, I'll announce the winner for this weeks giveaway. My bloggy friend Helen (aka Archie the Wonderdog) used her dog Archie to choose her winner, so I followed in her entertaining footsteps and used my blog muse, Felix, to do the honours. We devised a convoluted random number selection plan, involving these jigsaw pieces and this classy bag.
Since I had 275 entries, I needed three digits...so for step 1, I put the numbers 0,1 and 2 in a bag and asked Felix to pick...
It was tricky, but she got the hang of it in the end and picked 0. I on the other hand was too busy laughing to get a picture to prove it!
We repeated the process for the second digit (this time with the numbers 0-9) and Felix picked 8, before emptying the other numbers everywhere.
And finally for the third digit we gave up on the bag and let her pick from the face down pieces, and she picked 5 (please I actually managed to snap this moment!)
So, without further ado...the winning entry is 085
So congratulations....to Jessica from a Quilty Habit!!!! - You win a made to order zippy make-up bag, plus the Melody Miller, Lotta and IKEA fabrics...Congratulations! I have emailed you...
Back tomorrow with some of the christmas makes that I can show you :)
