Drumroll please....

Em wasn't available today to help me do the giveaway drawing, but my best friend and quilting buddy was :o)

I went over to her house late this afternoon.  I put the little folded slips of paper in a new reusable shopping bag that I finished last night.  She reached in...

pulled out a slip of paper...

and showed me the name...

darn camera!!!

I didn't realize that the name didn't show up in the picture until I got home and pulled the pictures off my camera *sigh*  I seriously need a new one where the flash doesn't wash out the color like this!  Lucky for me I had put the name in my zippered pocket.  The winner of one of the fat quarter bundles is

Rita R. from

Now, for the second name I decided that there was one person who has been so supportive throughout my first year blogging and who has consistently been a source of encouragement and creative inspiration.  So the second fat quarter bundle goes to

Allie from

Thank you all for stopping by and entering the giveaway.  I really enjoyed visiting your fabulous blogs!


  1. That's a great bag Mary! I love how you did the handles. And congrats to Rita and oh my gosh ME????? *jumps up and down like I'm 4* Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

    About the camera - I have the same thing - I've stopped using the flash at all. In lower light, I found out how to change the exposure setting [had to download the manual from the internet] and then use photoscape [free] to lighten the pic. And then too, your paper was white - it is almost impossible to photograph WHITE. I had the same problem when I had my give-away, I had my son draw the names and they were on paper. We took a gazillion pics just to make sure something came out!

  2. Congratulations to the winners. What a nice idea to give the extra gift to a nice supporter :O)
