Thank you all so much to everyone who visited the blog and decided to enter the giveaway. It was much more popular than I expected it to be and I'm thrilled that so many of you decided to follow the blog as well. Hopefully you'll stick around a bit and enjoy it. :)
Before I announce a winner, I want to say that I wish I could have chosen everyone. Seriously. The comments that were posted were so much fun that I wish I could make a mug rug for everyone who took the time to enter, but I'm afraid that postage would kill me. That said, I AM going to chose more than the initial randomly chosen winner. There were a couple of comments that put such a clear picture into my mind that I can't NOT make those mug rugs. I'm going to announce those winners in a second post, though.
So. For the moment that you've been waiting for...
I used Random.org to choose a winner, but I'm not certain how to post the screen shot. You'll just have to take my word for it.
Our winner is...#34, wooLynn, who said: "What a great giveaway! I like greens, blues, yellows, orange and natural linen but not red and no pastels. I would use it on my craft table maybe for coffee and a snack or to place my rug hooking scissors and hook. Log cabin with various widths or a random type of patchwork would be cool."
I'll be contacting you to get your address and I'll get started on your mug rug as soon as I hear back from you. I'm really looking forward to creating a mug rug for you - the ideas are already starting to flow!
And, everyone else, watch for the second post. I'm going to mull over the other entries and narrow down my favorites, then make another post later today.
Thank you all!
