The Results!

Wow! I was totally blown away by the amount of entries I had to my 100th post giveaway! Thank you so much to everybody that entered and took the time to leave a comment. But there can be ONLY one winner. So here it is...
Number 45 is Dara at A Very Good Coat Hook. Congratulations to Dara!
I will email you separately, Dara. But if you see this before I do, please email me your address.

I had a lot of trouble with the random generator widget, and despite the best efforts of Lynne and Marg, the best I could do was a photo of my computer screen! Do any of you clever bloggers know how to copy the widget (with the result showing) into your post?

Massive commiserations to everybody else. But to cheer you up here is a basket of newly hatched baby owls!
Really, how could anyone stay sad for long while looking at their sweet little owl faces?!

I feel like I was a winner too this week - I got into round 10 of the Doll Quilt Swap! We are still waiting to find out who our partners are, so I am trying to curtail my ideas until I can get a look at my partners likes/dislikes.

Anyway thanks again to everyone who entered the giveaway and welcome to all my new followers. I have lots of great posts planned for the next few weeks (including a tutorial to make these little guys above!), so stick around!


  1. Congratulations to Dara
    Love the little owls - are they easy to make???

  2. Well done Dara, I must admit to being a wee bit jealous.
    I'm looking forward to the owl tutorial.

  3. Try this to get the image....
    Alt Print at the random generator page.
    Open a software with image saving capabilities e.g. photoshop
    Open a new doc and paste.
    Crop, save as image.
