Blogiversary Winners

Elena cut out the names, folded them, placed them in the bowl, mixed them closed her eyes and chose and the winner is WENDY! She will get a Marvelous Fulled Mini Tote, a 440 yard hank of 100% merino wool (hand dyed), and a few stitch markers.

I added a 2nd place winner to and it's Dani, who claims she never wins anything! Well, looky here, you did! You won a few big cakes of prewound (the only way to get this stuff) hand-dyed lace/fingering weight wool. Please send me your mailing info.

The answer was The Sugar House by Laura Lippman, one of my favorite mystery writers. It's a Baltimore based series and when we went to Baltimore in August, our hotel was across the harbor from the Domino Sugar plant. I was so excited, I snapped several pics (none turned out well). My husband thought I was the biggest dork on earth, but what else is new.

Ladies, I will get your packages out some time next week.

I'm a new reader (and a former Jersy Girl...grew up in Nutley and Sparta) and I thoroughly enjoy your blog.

I am also totally blown away at the setup of the blog and the very interesting html and dhtml things you've made it do...pretty impressive...and then there's the content too! {ggg}

I'll be back!

I knew I knew WHERE the pic was from, but not what book! Lived in MD for a few years when I was a kid, and still prefer to go thru Baltimore Harbor Tunnel on the way North.

Yay!! I have been quite the winner lately. Thanks! I have to admit the only reason I entered your contest was so I could get one of your fulled bags. I know I could make one myself, but it wouldn't be the same, you know. There is something special about getting a handmade gift from someone else. I am so thrilled. :)

Congrats Wendy and Dani!! Well this book is on one of my profs TO READ list so I knew it. Now that I read more what her writing is like I think I'll have to check out the books by her too.

Dani said...

YAY! Thanks so much! And really I dont ever win things so maybe you will be the start of a string of better winning luck? (Any lotto numbers you wanna share with me? LOL)

Thanks again for adding a second place =)
