    The Winner!

    Goodness gracious, I've had a terrific time trying to get an internet connection this past week.. I've been struck with Intermittent Internet Syndrome, I'm afraid, which means my modem will suddenly decide to take a nap at the most inopportune times, and I've had to resort to using my phone to get a few things done, but that didn't bode well for me either.

    But instead of rambling further about my personal technology woes, I should take advantage of this small connection window and announce the winner of the Brew Haha kit!

    I had so much fun reading all of your comments about what your perfect fall day looks like.. I read each and every line, and smiled at all of the different memories and descriptions. I've put together a little "word collage" below that highlights some of the comments you all contributed; but trust me when I say, this is only a very small sampling of all of the wonderful descriptions! Thank you all so, so much!

    Rita, please email me your address so I can get your fabric, floss, and pins sent to you! I hope you enjoy stitching on the Stars Hollow linen.. it's the loveliest color!

    Thank you all again, and I'll see you back here soon! I've got the next Serial Bowl Sampler Lesson almost ready to preview!

    Out of the Bag!

    How fun that was, reading all of your comments and emails!  I am so grateful to each of you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.. I never knew there were so many readers! You've made my day!

    It's time to announce the winners! The first winner will receive 3 currently-released Plum Street Samplers patterns as well as 1 e-voucher for a future release, good through December 31, 2011. The second winner will receive 1 current release and an e-voucher for a future release.. and Winner #3 will receive her choice of a current release OR an e-voucher for a future release. (That last one was Sabrina's idea.)

    The winners will be "announced" by Breanna's newly-adopted kitten, Tilly! :)

    Congratulations to each of you, and thank you to EVERYONE who wrote in. I wish I could send every single one of you something! If the 3 winners will email me at paulette71@yahoo.com, I'll get your patterns out as soon as possible. You can either have them emailed to you as a .pdf or I can snail-mail them to you. Whichever you prefer! Just FYI: I'll be heading out of town on Monday (July 25) and won't return until August 2nd, so if you email me during that time period, I won't be able to send your charts until I get back home.

    Before I leave…

    Bre and one of her roommates went to the humane society yesterday and brought home sister kittens.. they'll be living with the girls in their apartment in a couple of weeks, but in the mean time, Tilly will have to keep her sweet self in Bre's room bc of my cat allergy and the 3 crazy pooches that live downstairs – who at the moment have no idea she exists; the Yorkie, however, knows something is up…


    Tilly is such a sweetheart! I made the mistake of laying on the floor to watch her yesterday, and she immediately approached me and rubbed her little face right on my left eye. For those of you who are allergic to cats, you know what this means. :(  Needless to say, I exited the room about 5 minutes later and had to wash my face and hands! I LOVE cats, so I'm very sad for these blasted allergies (that didn't show up until after Bre was born, for some reason)!

    She was just spayed a couple of days ago, so her little belly is shaved…

    Bre, your new kitten is adorable! I know you'll make a wonderful pet-owner. And good luck getting that collar on her. 😉

    A Winner!

    Well here I had a video all ready to show to you of the dogs announcing the winner, but I can't find my movie-making software! :(  At any rate, I had so much fun reading everyone's comments about their dogs (and cats!).. and we have a winner!

    VANESSA!! Vanessa has 3 cats and a "schnauzer who channels Satan." Oh my, my… I'm so sorry to hear this, Vanessa. I can definitely relate, bc when The Yorkie starts her screeching, my head starts spinning around in 360's, and then Mike has to call in the local exorcist.

    Anyway, congratulations, Vanessa! Email me!

    And thank you to everyone!

    The Winners!

    Yes, you read that right – winners! As in three! I recalled that when I did my giveaway last year, I chose 3 people to win… the first number chosen won 5 charts, the second won 3, and the third won 1… I had my 3 girls choose 3 random numbers, and that's how the winners were selected.

    Thank you so very much to each of you for leaving me the warmest, friendliest comments… they mean so much!

    Congratulations to the three winners! Email me at paulette71@yahoo.com so we can exchange info!

    And somebody remind me again why children shouldn't have frappuccinos?

    A Winner!

    Goodness, what a busy day I've had! For the first time in many, many weeks (okay, since October), I actually had lunch with girlfriends! At Panera! It was such a fun time! Oh man, I need to get out more.

    I've added up all the entries – including the extra ones that were posted in your blogs (thank you!) – and after entering the numbers in a random number generator, the winning number is……



    Thank you to EVERYONE who entered and left such sweet, encouraging words and compliments regarding the new blog. I've never met a kinder group of people! And now you all have really got me in the mood to bake, which is NOT good for my love handles. Oh well, if I'm going to have them, I may as well have 'em good.

    Congratulations, Beth! I actually find it quite hilarious that yours was the winning number after your comment: "You KNOW you want to pick me." LOL – that has never worked for me in giveaways, and I've used it plenty! What's your secret? 😉
