Giveaway winner

Are you wondering who is the lucky winner of my Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day giveaway?  Well wonder no more.
 I tried again to show the actual picture of the Mr. Random result and can't get it to work (if someone can tell me how to do that I'd be very appreciative) but I was able to get it to show in text form and the result was

True Random Number Generator Min: Max: Result: 231 Powered by RANDOM.ORG

When I changed the  blog last fall, I lost my comment numbering (I definitely have to get that added back) so I counted down the list and the winner is:

I think gift certificates are always a great gift! Somewhere they can spoil themselves, craft store, coffee shop, salon....something of a splurge!

Congratulations Kristy!  I've sent you an email and as soon as I hear back, these Moda Social Club charm packs will be on their way to you. I can't wait to see what you create with them.
 I was really happy to find Kristy's blog, Hopeful Threads, because I learned that her blog is all about giving back in the form of sewing for others.  Her very first sewn donation was diapers that were sent to China with her dear friend when she traveled there to bring her new child home.  Of course, that struck a cord with me and I plan on helping Kristy with her projects and getting the word out in the future.  If you like to sew for charity, go check out her blog.

When I got home yesterday and checked my own email I got the happy news that I am a winner too.  Geta of Romanian Quilt Studio is giving me the choice of not 1 but 5 of her fabulous patterns.  It was hard to choose just 5 but here are my picks.

Thank you so much Geta.  I've so admired Geta's beautiful work for a while and now I can recreate some of her great projects myself.  And thank you to everyone that entered my giveaway.  You all had some great suggestions for the end of the year teacher gifts.  I've got a plan now, I just need to see if I have enough fabric that works, and then the sewing shall commence.  Stay tuned to see what I end up creating.

Lucky you. Great picks from Geta's patterns. I have all the materials to try one of her shadow trapunto patterns but now need some time. Geta's work is so inspiring. Once the trapunto is complete I want to try one of her bag patterns in woven vinyl. Have a great day. Congratulations to Kristy as well. I imagine she will be enjoying some fun sewing time in the near future.
