You have learned about the goings on in my weaving studio and looms, our dogs (Connor, and now Calli), you endured our ongoing renovations (kitchen, dining room, stairwell, interior painting through out) Who could forget the ripping off of all the old decks and the rebuild? Trees being cut down and a new well being dug and pipes being run 300 feet to the house? Ah, the joys of home ownership!
As warps came off the loom, you were there for the show and tell's and also our road trips, health woes, vacations and additions to the family. Many of you have become friends I hear from privately and I feel like I could drop by for tea if we lived closer together. (Now wouldn't that be a great road trip? Traveling across Canada or the USA staying only at cyber fibre friends homes?) I hear regularly from Scotland, Australia and now even Taiwan!
Pushing the publish button that day was a leap of faith and look what it has added to my life!
So same process as last year... I wrote out all the names on slips of paper and placed them into a large turned bowl we have. A good stir up and one name drawn....
I'm happy to announce that reader the Reverend Wayne Nicolson or 'Padre Wayne' as he is known at Ravelry, is the grand winner of the kitchen towel. He gets to choose between one of these:
I will leave a message for him at Ravelry and so expect to hear back soon! (Edit: Wayne chose the turned twill)
I also decided to do a 'runner up' draw and reader Dawn Sare will receive a random assortment of weaving samples. (Edit: Dawn is getting three actual woven samples and drafts for waffle weave towels, Ethan's baby hearts blankets, and the recent Gothic Silk scarves)
Now to alert the winners and get some mailing addresses.... back again soon.
