And the winner is ...



  
Today is the day. 

First let me say I am so very grateful for all the visits and kind comments I have received over the last days.  It has been humbling.  Thank you Vicki for hosting this event.

And as much as I have enjoyed past blogfests, this one has been the absolute best.  The quality of the blogs and the interesting themes have been extraordinary!

I have a winner for my hand woven scarf and I am thrilled.

After writing EVERYONE's name on a piece of paper,


And cutting them out individually,


Folding them up tight (till my fingers bled - just kidding) ... although I did get a paper cut!


 ...  squeezing my eyes tightly closed and sticking my hand into the basket to select one ...


the winner is:

  1. Congrats to Noofy. It looks like you may enjoy writing out the names and cutting them and then selecting one, when I have a blog give away I however, go to random.org and it quickly picks someone. Either way results in a happy winner.

    1. Actually it never occurred to me there would be so many entries. Next time I will do a random number generator and keep all the comments consolidated to one blog post so I can use numbers.

    1. Yea, I was kind of surprised when I picked her name. The odds were definitely in favor of a new follower getting picked! But you just never know.

  6. As I was telling Elaine when she contacted me today....I've been the winner of parking tickets, speeding tickets, a flat tire, but never ever such a beautiful scarf! At first I thought Elaine was joking, but why? It had to be true and it was - I'm thrilled!!! Thank you Elaine for "picking" me, thanks everyone for your good wishes (and jealously :) I can't wait to wear it (I might even send a picture of me wearing it for posting)!!!
