Before I begin this post, I would like to say THANK YOU to all of the men and women who have and who are currently serving in our military. Without them, we would not have our freedom. Thank you for each and every moment that you gave so unselfishly to serve our country. Our family appreciates EACH and EVERY ONE of YOU! May God Bless you!!
I have to send a big thank you to all of you who have been just so very sweet and encouraging in my bag endeavor!! It tickles me silly to know that many of you will be making the bag now with the patterns that you have bought. Be sure to send me a photo of the finished bag so I can add it to a “Sophie’s Bloomers Bag” Flickr album. What fun that will be so see them done up in all kinds of fabrics! *giggle*
As a reminder, the giveaway was for a bag (the second to the left OR the very far right bag), a ruffled burlap runner, or a pattern. HOWEVER, because I am turning FIVE-OHHHHHHHH……why not FIVE giveaways! Shah! That’s what I’m talkin’ about!
All of the emailed entries and blog comment entries were added to the teal Bloomer Bag…..all 325 of them…..(you girls rock!)….
Here are the winners….1,2,3,4 and FIVE!
1. Susan Ramey Cleveland: winner of a Sophie’s Bloomer Bag
2. Manuela – The Pleasures of Homemaking: winner of a ruffled burlap runner
3. Glinda – a loyal blog reader & friend from Washington, DC: winner of a ruffled burlap runner
4. Marilyn – The Cutest Cottage Lamps blog: winner of a Sophie’s Bloomer Bag pattern
5. Stacie Jayne: winner of a Sophie’s Bloomer Bag pattern
Congratulations to everyone! A big ((hug)) to all who took the time to enter to win, too! Now what were the infamous Duhgall and Fiona doing whilst we picked the winners? They are NEVER too far from us – as a matter-of-fact, they were right at our feet. Duhgall was eyeballing Fiona’s red squishy ball…
“Where is she?”, he asks as he looks over his shoulder.
“Oh, there you are! I have your ball, Fiona…neener, neener!”
…and he is laughing his square scottie bum off about it, too!!!
But as quickly as you can say JACK RABBIT, Fiona moves in and snags it!
Again, congrats to the ladies!! I will need your addresses so that your goodies can be mailed off.
