And the winners are...

It's time to announce the two winners of my One World One Heart giveaway! 

First a little about how I chose the winners. There were 243 comments of which six of them were duplicates. So, that made 237. I put 237 into a Random Number Generator and it chose the numbers 15 and 81. 

I counted down the list of comments, while skipping the second comment of each of the duplicates (I didn't want to delete them.) It wound up being very easy, as there was only one duplicate within the first 81.

Congratulatons to:

#15 is Jingle who said Oh, how fun! Thank you for a great giveaway!

#81 is fran who said beautiful postcards! please include me and drop by mine, too! http://www.artsyfran.com/2010/01/25/owoh_2010/

Jingle has been contacted by email and Fran has been contacted through her blog. If either of them do not respond within 48 hours, I will be choosing an alternate winner.

Using up some yarn

Don't forget to stop by the One World One Heart Magic Carpet Ride full of great giveaways. It's on until February 15 and I'm #94 on the list of blogs. Be sure to enter my giveaway there.

I've been so lazy about blogging lately. Maybe some of you have some advice to help me with that?

While I've been working a little bit on many different things, I did finish one project! In an attempt to try to use up some of the huge yarn stash that I have from years ago, I joined a Mystery Crochet-a-long. I discovered something I forgot after so many years of only quilting. When I finish the afghan 'top', it's FINISHED! No need to sandwich, quilt or bind it! Only problem is that it doesn't look like there's any less yarn in the cabinets. 

It does need to be blocked but, here is the finished product. Each square is a different stitch pattern. It was a lot of fun. You should check out Carolyn's Gourmet Crochet blog.
