Giveaway Winner ... Winners!!

Hey lovely quilters, I am pleased to announce the winner of my birthday giveaway - oh, what the heck, let's have more than one winner!!

Because you all left comments and guesses over 3 posts (and some had multiple wrong guesses!!), the fairest way was to write everyone's name on a piece of paper once and then write the names of those who guessed correctly on another piece of paper (so getting two chances.) 

The correct guess was SNOOKER!! Yes, dear Jackie is an avid and passionate snooker fan (well, it takes all sorts as my Nen used to say!)

Here's where I'm up to so far - a long way still to go and I will have to sort my balls out - they don't look too bad here but close up .... hmmmm:

So, names in a bag, shake 'em up! The winner of my rainbow colours (Red and Yellow and Pink and Green, Orange and Purple and Blue) pack of fat quarters (FYI, there's a couple of 1/2 yards in there):

is ... drum roll, please:

Well done, Fran (@ Patchy Rose) Congratulations!! You get the FQs and I will also make you a purple Pants Bag :)

But you all made this such fun (my little band of munchkins!) and it is still my birthday week (until midnight tonight!) and I got lots of nice presents and cards and had a fabby night out, I wanted to share the giveaway love a bit wider! So, next out of the bag is:

Congratulations, Shauna (@ lovingquiltin) but you'll have to let me know what you'd like - a Pants Bag, a Cushion or an iPad Case :)

and one more? Ok then, you twisted my arm:

Congratulations,  Nina (@ Quilts, Life and Balance) I will also make you a Pants Bag in the colour (s) of your choice :)   

What fun - I really am very fond of you all - even though we've never met and, sadly, probably never will :( you make me smile with your wonderful comments and I love our exchanges, visiting your blogs and getting to see what you make.

I will email all the winners to request posting details and confirm those orders! Thanks to everyone for joining in - I wish you could have all won ... still, there's always next time!!


  1. You lovely, wonderful person, you've just made my week! After a stressful day, I really picked the exact right moment to sit down with a cup of tea and read through blogs :-) Thank you so much, and ps the snooker quilt is looking fab so far x

  2. Congrats Fran, Shauna, and Nina! And thanks Jennifer for the great giveaway and sharing the progress on your quilt. Looking good! signed... Your loyal munchkin, Lorna!

  3. Congratulations to the winners! Maybe I'll have better luck next time.

  4. Wow!!!! I can't believe I am a winner of one of your creative items!!! I never win anything so this is a real delight and especially from a blogging friend. I love your bags, your pillows and your ipad cases. What to choose, what to choose?? I don't have an ipad so we can cross that one off the list. I think I would like one of your pants bags - they are so very cute. I love all colours but am partial to pinks or greens or blues. I'll let you choose though. I'm just so tickled! You have made my day Jen - thank you so very much! Your snooker quilt is coming along well - what a creative mind you have to put that together.

  5. I love birthdays. Look at all this wonderful happiness. Your quilt is going to be a great gift. Your balls look really good you silly.

  6. Your balls look fine. *snigger* I'm so juvenile.
    I'm glad you had such a lovely birthday week. You are being very generous with your gifts. That's so lovely.

  7. Do you hear that sound, it is me crying. I didn't win.
    I will get over it!
    Snooker looks wonderful. The balls look great. She will love this.


I love reading all your comments, I know it takes time to write them but they make me smile so thank you for dropping by :)
