Without further ado, here are the winners. I made a list of all respondents (doesn't that sound legal?) in the order of posting. No one was counted twice, so there were 9 comments. The random number generator decreed #2 as the winner--Sheila!!!! (Sorry, no autographed or even unautographed Patrick Swayze undies ;-)) Sheila, you have won your choice of one of my applique patterns. When I see you next, I will bring the assortment and let you choose. Once she has chosen, I will post a picture of her with her pattern.
There were five correct guesses for the mystery photo. Yes, it was a clematis seed head--one from the white clematis I used in a prior post. They certainly look much different! The random number generator has decreed that #4 is the winner--Richard! I'm guessing you probably don't want a pattern, so I will think up something else for you!
Because WLDFLR was the first to correctly identify the seed head (and to give tips on using them), I am awarding her a prize as well. Do you applique? If so, I would like to send you one of my cutwork patterns. If not, I'll think up something else! WLDFLR, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know and to give me your snail mail address.
See, it pays to play! That's it for tonight. I know, I know, what a gip on the pictures tonight! Tomorrow I'll post something breathtaking (hee hee, yeah, okay...). Til then, congratulations to the winners!
