.....And The Winners Are------


Hello from Lincoln Nebraska! I arrived safe and sound this afternoon and was picked up at the airport by Rebecka and whisked off for my tour of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum! What a place! I only wish we could have spent more time, but they were closing early due to the incoming snow....and I'll just have to make another trip to catch MORE of it. If you have a chance to come to Lincoln, Nebraska, this has GOT to be on the top list of things to do if you are a Quilter!

So....now for what you have been waiting for! I can NOT believe the response we have had between the two blogs! And I know there were those of you who couldn't figure out how to comment, or those who didn't have a google id, a wordpress id, or an open id...but there is a reason why you have to be registered. You see, it keeps spam and all kinds of riff raff at bay, and a google id IS a free thing...so though it is a pain to fill it out, it is all good!

As I write this post there are 575 comments over at Stash Manicure!! You guys tipped the scales! And the winner for Scraps & Shirttails II from OVER THERE is:

LORIS in California!!

Congrats Loris! Send me your snail mail address so I can send your copy out to you as soon as it is in my hot little hands! I sent you an email just a bit ago to let you know I drew your name!

And...we have one more to give away! From the 429 comments on my "Kiss in the Corner" post yesterday.....the winner is..........

VIVIAN in Iowa!!!

Vivian, I have also emailed you from the link on your blog, please contact me with your snail mail info so I can get this out to you as soon as it comes in.

THIS was so fun!! We'll have to do it again soon, won't we?!

I guess that I need to add the book to my wish list. The book comes out in Febuary, my birthday in March. From now until then I have plenty of time to drop hints to my family.

Congrats to the winners! I didn't enter as I had already purchased the book-supporting Bonnie!
Hope your stay in Lincoln is nice. I live 70 miles north, so I know you are going to see some REAL snow today.
Sorry you didn't get to spend more time at the quilt museum.

Vivian said...

Congrats to the winners! And you are surprised at the response?!? You are a big presence in the quilty blogland and (to use Beth Ferrier's favorite term) a "Quilt Goddess" to all us scrap quilters! Can't wait for the new book to come out.

Debbie Lou said...

Congrats, Ladies! Enjoy your winnings! See, you are a "Rock Star", Bonnie! Scrap Quilting Rules!

Bonnie! You misspelled my name AND state. It's Joan in NC!

Have a great day.

Vivian said...

I'm still in shock -- what are the odds? Well, about 500 to 1, when all the entries are added up. I'm looking forward to that new book, and I promise to use it with a huge smile on my face, knowing how lucky I am to be a winner. Thanks, Bonnie.
