And The Winner Is

This pretty pink mallow is in my Dad's backyard. He's quite the Gardner. I have mallows in my yard, starts from his; but his are prettier this year. Thought they were particularly pretty with the rain drops still on them. Anyway, this beautiful flower is for our winner. SSeger! Woot Woot!

Congratulations to you SSeger. Thank you for taking time to enter the contest. The participation in the month long contest has been very disappointing. Only a hand full of people participated. I'll be putting another contest together and hope to have a better participation. So, please do keep checking in, often.

A new blog post appears 99.9 % of the daily, so the need to check in often is indeed important. Additionally, I'd like to remind people to leave comments when they do visit. We have no way of knowing you were here if you don't leave a comment. I like everyone to support each other with nice comments about their projects, their thoughtful donation etc. You do NOT need to be a blogger to leave a comment.

Leaving a comment is easy:
  1. type your comment
  2. click the drop down box
  3. select name and url
  4. type name in the name space and leave the url space blank
  5. hit ok or publish..........that's it!

SSeger, remind us if you're a knitter, or a crocheter, or both....will help me put your winnings together. Leave a comment here, and email me your snail addy.

Thanks to all who did participate.

  2. Congrats SSeger. Sorry Sandy, I have been trying to be on the computer less but I do check Bridge and Beyond every day. I've got lots of hats to send you but I figured I'd wait until you actually had a month for hats. I am going to try to work on making what you select from now on but it will be a small amount compared to others. I am a very slow crafter. Keep up the good work. With regards to the contest, I really didn't understand it. That is the reason I didn't participate. Maybe if you break the paragraphs down a bit or maybe I'm just plain stupid! lol Anyway, you and your charity are number ONE as far as I'm concerned!!!

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
