The Results Are In!

Thirty people visited the new website and took the time to comment.  I wrote each name on a slip of paper.

The papers went into the bowl and...

we are ready for the draw.  Well, actually I will draw three times!

At this point I had made a quite odd interesting video of the draw as it happened.  And I uploaded it to the blog--and it wouldn't play.  So I did a capture for this photo to show you that I drew from the bowl without looking.

The first pouch (an Atkinson Designs pattern), with the butterflies, goes to Barb McA!
The second pouch, flowered, in the back, goes to Pat S. and the third pouch, pink, goes to Robin!

Here is what the insides look like.  These are great for storing cords, quilting supplies, in your purse for all those things that fall to the bottom.

Many thanks to all who entered!  It was great fun to see who commented each day.  And some "lurkers" came into the light!  And some friends I haven't heard from in a while, though I think of them often.

That's it for tonight.  I'll try to get my video hat to fit better next time.  Or my uploading hat, or my....  

Blissful hugs,

P.S.  Barb, Pat, and Robin, please send your snail mail addresses to  Thank you!

No Longer Renting Apartments

The glitch is fixed!  My website people ( are the best!

So...I am extending the contest to noon on Monday, July 27.  A reminder of what the deal is:  Go to my newly-revamped website and, using the contact me form at the bottom of any page, or returning to the blog, leave me a comment.  You will then be eligible to win!  No entry, no chance; zero, nada, zip, zilch.

Many thanks to those who have commented already!

Blissful hugs,

A Glitch

Technology.  Love it when it works.  Not so much love when it doesn't.  Two people contacted me by email today to say that they could not get into the website.  I checked it goes to an apartment leasing website, but under the Sharon Stroud heading!  No, I am not leasing apartments!

So, in an effort to play fair, I will extend the comment contest until the website is back up and running properly.  So for those who have been lurking (you know who you are!), you still have time to put yourself into the drawing.

I have reported the error, but don't really expect anything to happen until Monday.  I will keep you posted on progress.  Thanks for your patience.  (Hand work makes a whole lot more sense now, doesn't it?)

Blissful hugs,
