I've finally done the deed! We have three new fabric owners, no thanks to Bart the Pomeranian. Sigh. He rolled over to get his belly rubbed and wouldn't get back up, no matter what I said or did. I would have broken out the treats, but I think "Grandma" gave him a few too many while we were there, as he feels a little hefty when I pick him up. Sigh. So with one hand rubbing Bart's round little belly, I picked the following three names.
Susan, who sounds like an enabler extraordinaire and my kind of gal, won piece #1, the fat eighth hand dyed Newcastle linen, for her stash. I almost feel like sending her some carrots for her eyes.
Winner #2, for the almost square piece of dark grey Aida, is Ariadne from Greece, whose second entry is the one that did it.
And the most popular piece of fabric was the only piece that wasn't hand dyed, the fat eight of yellow 32 count Belfast linen. Terri is our lucky winner there.
Congratulations to the winners! I've already e-mailed everyone for your addresses so that I can send you your fabric when I finally venture out later this week. I can't wait to see what you will be stitching on these pieces, when eventually you do :)
And thank you everyone for your warm wishes. They really mean a lot. I'm doing better every day, although I'm still not back to my usual routine. But as soon as I hit the Publish button on this entry, I'm powering off my laptop and finally stitching, after more than two weeks. And tomorrow, I'll be taking photos when it's light out again and, apparently, taking lots of walks with a chubby little someone.
Happy stitching everyone!
