A big "thank you" goes out to everyone who entered my contest for a chance to win my new "Halloween Jacks" pattern (there were over 100 entries)! I'm sorry you didn't all win, but the little entry bucket was crowded! A friend of mine, Lizzie Knight, squeezed her eyes shut and stirred for a long time . . .
. . . and finally pulled out the lucky winner--Sharon of Lee's Summit, Missouri! Sharon left a great comment on this blog about the "Halloween Jacks" pattern and about her grandson, Jack", so I did a little investigating and found she has her own wonderful blog at http://campgramma.blogspot.com. If you have a chance, wander on over there and look at all the beautiful projects Sharon is working on, as well as little peeks of her grandchildren and some yummy Christmas cookies. Congratulations Sharon, and here's a picture of the pattern you won!
For those of you who didn't win, don't despair--there's always February's contest for a new Christmas candle mat pattern that I'll be running later this month. I know I promised to finish up the tutorial for that pattern this week, but it looks like I'm not going to get all the embellishments stitched as quickly as I hope, so I'll post the last segment of that tutorial as quick as I can!
In the meantime, thanks to all who participated and left comments, joined this blog or posted to your Facebook pages. Way to go gals! xoxo--Melanie
