Announcing the Giveaway Winner –

It gets very complicated – this drawing a winning name for Posy. We want to be absolutely fair and so my dear husband all the way over in London pulled all the information together and created a program that would give each person the correct number of entries. The program churned and churned, sorted records, assigned numbers, mowed the grass, mopped the floors, painted the walls, took out the trash, and finally shot out the total number of entries from which a winning name was to be drawn. Not drawn like in a sketch book or even pulled like out of a hat, but chosen. Then using a random number generator, an amazing program which is probably very simple but I had nothing to do with creating, the winning number turns out to be #445.

Of course that means nothing to you, but I have the key and to me it means that Barb from Oregon is the winner of Posy, the Pincushion Faerie! Posy will be getting ready, packing her bags, and standing by for takeoff.

For those of you who didn’t win, and that’s everyone else on the list, I want to tell you that I will be doing another giveaway and if you entered this one and come back and enter the next one, I will automatically enter your name twice or thrice! Why do I complicate things for myself? Well, first of all, I’m grateful that you are interested in my work. Secondly, I’m grateful that you stop by to read my blog. And lastly, I complicate things for myself because I’m crazy that way.

Poor dear husband – all these years thinking it can only get better right? Sorry, it seems to have gone the other way for him. But he’ll be back home tomorrow and begin trying very earnestly to keep me in line. (I know it’s impossible and you know it’s impossible, but he’s such an optimist. Let’s not spoil his plan.)

Congratulations Barb! Posy will be winging her way westward and looking for a safe place to land!

Thank you all very much for your entries and your enthusiasm!
