I WON!!! Thank you for voting! (+ a Giveaway)

Remember the competition last week for the most interesting sewingroom?

Guess what? I WON!!!!! Yay!!!!

I must say, I have been totally overwhelmed with the amount of people voting for me.. 182 apparently! which is approx 70% of the total vote with 10 finalists taking part.

The Oz Material Girls sent me an email saying "make sure you tell all your friends and family". As most of my online friends are either in the Old Red Barn Co or Doll Quilt Swap or both, I thought I'd post a thread there as the easiest way to reach everyone, never thinking anything of it otherwise....

I was SO surprised by the enormous support I got! Thank you ALL, SO much for voting for me. I was truly flabbergasted!! Marblesbestfriend even roped her husband and teenage relatives in to get extra votes.. Totally beyond anything I was asking for but much appreciated!

I does mean that I won though :-) and to say thank you to everyone who helped I have put together a little giveaway to show my appreciation.

Firstly 4 coordinating FQ's from Cranston Village and a few bits and bobs...

Secondly a panel with a gardening theme... maybe to cover your spring gardening notebook with? and some bits here too..


To win either of those please just leave me a comment. Nothing fancy this time, anyone welcome, anywhere in the world.

I'll randomly pick a winner after the weekend.

Good luck everyone and thanks again!

Oooh, pretty things!! You're so nice to spread the love, although - confession - I don't want entered because I didn't vote. *pouts* I tried, really I did, but the doobry-firkin wouldn't load properly for me. I'm glad you won, too!! I don't feel so bad now. Heh.

It was no big deal pressing a button for you, so you really shouldn't have put together a giveaway.
That said, I would like to win the blue fabric - I'm collecting blues at the moment for a quilt I'm planning.

But congrats once more!
