And the winner is..........


The winners of my second blogiversary giveaway have been chosen! Yes, there are two winners!  I decided that one just wasn't enough!


To make the "drawing" as random as possible I stole borrowed an idea that I saw on Pat's blog.




  She had her cat choose the winner of a giveaway.  I don't have a cat, but Copper was willing to help out.....anything to get a treat!  And he likes to get his picture on my blog.  He must, since he tries to get in all the quilt photos. 

I printed out all the comments that were left on the giveaway post, cut them apart, and spread them out on the floor.






With just a smidge of tape on the bottom of his paw, Copper picked the winning comments!........He wasn't very happy about the tape being on his paw. He claims it wasn't a smidge.  He'd like me to define smidge.

I was hoping to get better pictures of the drawing, but it didn't go quilt as smoothly as I had planned. Copper was pretty excited about the whole thing. This may have gone better with a cat.......don't tell Copper.  



I have no idea why this picture won't stay in the center even though I keep clicking on "center"! Okay, now after I wrote this caption it's centered.  That's not even funny. I guess I'm keeping the caption to keep it centered.  Grrr.  


Mary On Lake Pulaski was the first winner!  She is from Minnesota and she does some amazing sewing! Mary left the first comment on that post.....See the first comment sometimes wins!

Congratulations on the second anniversary of your blog. Favorite of all time...difficult. Love Neptune, but not neccessarily with the coral included - just the greens and blues. Love Wee Play for baby quilts. Love Rouenarries for elegant.



Izzy from Dizzy Quilts was chosen next! Izzy is from Canada and she was one of my first blog friends! She's a Schnibbles fan too.

Congrats on the blog anniversary! Your blog was one of the very first blogs I discovered and started following and I've enjoyed every minute of it! :-). I would say two of my favourite lines would be Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille and Hometown (I forget who the designer was now though).


I'll be sending Mary and Izzy emails asking for their mailing addresses, and  hopefully sending out their prizes next week!

Thank you all for the kind comments you all left on my second blogiversary post!  I enjoyed reading about your favorite fabrics and meeting some new bloggers.

Have a great weekend!!

What a fun way to pick winners. Your dog was probably shaking his foot "get it off, get it off!".

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

thanks Copper! You did a great job!

Kelli said...

Congrats to the winners! I love posts with dog photos in them, and Copper did such a great job. I'm afraid Buster would just drool all over the entries and then chew them up.. ;)

Izzy said...

Oh wow! I knew there was a reason I love dogs so much! :-). Thank you Michele... You have just made my day!
