Drum Roll Please

Unaccustomed as I am to public writing I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who entered my give away over the past week. In just a few minutes we'll know who the lucky winner is. 

But first ....One of the cool things about being part of the blogging community is that when all of Australia is snoring it's head off and I'm pretty much one of sixteen people in the country who is awake at 3.20am, I have my Northern Hemisphere friends to keep me company. Thank you people on the other side of the world for getting me through another night of cruddy sleep. I took the opportunity to get busy in my sewing room as well. Naturally I'll be asleep tonight at 9pm but I'm starting to enjoy living like a 90 year old woman who has to get up 43 times a night because she has  a bladder capacity the size of a pea. 

Ok I was just sort of building the tension there ...I like being dramatic. Let's hop on over to Mr. Random Number generator and choose a winner.

You’ll just have to trust me on this because I can't get that little number doodad result thing to paste in my blog....The winner is:Number 53



Blogger Pokey said...

 
I'm glad to have you blogging, Shy, and even more, to visit with you in your blog window, and you in mine. Keep it comin' girlfriend, you are a bright spot on my computer ~
:-}pokey

Pokey will be mortified that the very first time she doesn't proof read her comment and and calls me Shy (I can hear most of you rolling round on the floor with laughter at this point )  random number generator picks her comment to be regurgitated for all the world to see. I'm pretty sure  that the universe wanted you to have this fabric as consolation Pokey! Congratulations. Please send me your address and I'll get this off to you this week.

Thank you everyone for playing!

Congratulations Pokey. I'm sure that is going to happen to me one day, especially if I use my iPad to comment, auto correct is not very nice sometimes.
Thanks for sharing your bladder size Shay!

It's a small world after all when someone I "know" wins. Pokey you lucky girl! I am even smiling as I write this, sore loser that I can be!

rosie said...

I am so laughing at the moment.. Poor Pokey! I am in sympathy with you about sleep too, I will sure crash tonight...

Elizabeth said...

Congratulations to Pokey!

I can't believe I missed out on entering. Last week was full of weird for me and I skimmed the post and meant to come back and fully read it and then comment. I'm not sure what happened.

Great giveaway!
