Did You Win?

A big, huge thank you to everyone who stopped by and entered my vintage Christmas giveaway.

Somehow I managed to turn a 'simple' selection process into a crafty project but I am what I am.

First I made the numbers, sewn of course.

Followed by this little village of number tents.

Which naturally led to this numbers Christmas tree.
Complete with ornaments I might point out, because I am occasionally 'detail oriented.'

Realizing this could eventually spiral out of control, it was time to move on to the drawing. I brought in an independent auditor/party bird to oversee the results and with my trusty Japanese chopsticks in hand...

Lucky No. 59 was drawn.

Congratulations to Linda at LBP SEWS!

Thanks again to everyone who stopped by and I wish you all Happy Holidays!


Here are some additional giveaways going on, all with wonderful things to win. Good Luck!

rose hip is giving away some of her fantastic crochet-trimmed pillowcases.

creativebreathing has this charming little advent calendar.

Kim from Daisy Cottage has a guest blogger this month ... it's my friend Becky from Sweet Cottage Dreams! Becky has a giveaway but also shares the very moving story of the events of her life this past year.

Have a wonderful weekend. 
I'll be shopping at Crafty Wonderland in Portland, OR this Sunday.


  1. HOLY COW GIRL...YOU SEWED your numbers! Then arranged them in a cute Christmas tree shape? You have too much holiday time on your hands - hope you save those numbers for future drawings. Glad Mr. Party Bird was the auditor - am sure he did a good job and wasn't to flighty with his responsibility!
    See you Sunday? NO SNOW!

  2. Congratulations Linda! I love the way this lady sews! Talent with a capital "T"

  3. Detail oriented? Um, I think there's a more clinical term for that - but hats off for the best giveaway drawing ever, even if (sniff, sob) I didn't win.

  4. You are cracking me up! Even though I didn't win after begging to be picked your post is so funny that I feel like a winner! I know exactly how that is to get caught up in the details and I'll occasionally have to slap my face and say, "Sober up girl!"

  5. I forgot to enter your give-a-way! I thought the deadline was before I went to Florida last week, but discovered it was actually after I arrived back home and I didn't check your blog until the morning after the deadline. It was still fun following along and I love the pic of the number tree and yes, I noticed the ornaments before I read what you had typed about them.

  6. You are sew fun! hehe... did you see what I did there? ;)

    Congratulations to the lucky winner!

  7. I have read all of your blog friends with drawings, and they're all as wonderful as yours was! Congrats to the lucky winner. I love your attention to detail, by the way.

  8. OH MY GOSH!!!!! I can't believe it! I am so excited!! Can you tell!!!!!!!!!

    I have sent you an email with my address info on it!



  9. to your blog! Very cute. I cracked up at your giveaway tree! I am so sorry I missed out on the fun!
    I am VERY disappointed with my GW also. I can buy new cheaper at other places.
    Have a very Merry Christmas and I will be back after the New Year to see whatever "detail oriented project" you are up too!


I love this part! Thanks for your comment.
