Ladies...... we have a WINNER!

Who's a clever girl then! 

Obviously the answer is ME.    I'm not just clever I'm a genius.   I figured out how to get Random Number Generator onto my blog post.     That means I didn't have to rely on the Policeman's helmet and a grumpy old British Bobby to select a give-a-way winner.

So..... before you expire with excitement  here it is.....


No cheating here girls.  Mr. Random Generator has chosen comment number 25 to win the prize.  Who is that I wonder.......

I checked the list very....very carefully......


And the winner is   Supergoof  who bloggs from the beautiful Netherlands.    Congratulations Ingrid.   I know you'll make something very beautiful with your new layer cake.   If you haven't visited her blog yet grab a cuppa.. click on the name and go right there.  You won't be disappointed.

Phew!!   I'm going to need a strong cuppa to calm me down now.  Honestly.... I'm so excited you'd think it was me that just won the prize.    What a Wally eh!

Well..... this WAS going to be me today.....


concentrating hard....looking intelligent and sewing up a storm <ha!>   Things never turn out how you expect do they.    Instead I'm with Bagpus..... watching CatTV....


Well... it is darned cold outside and inside is not much better.  Who can blame us for snuggling up in front of a lovely fire.    I'm on a drive to conserve central heating oil.   Honestly the price of that stuff is enough to give you an attack of the vapours!     More quilts.... that's what's needed I think.

I've sewn another Dear Jane block......


...just in case you think I've been slacking.    I dreaded this one for some reason but surprisingly it went together very quickly (for me).    Have to admit to a bit of cheating though.  The cross in the centre is supposed to be pieced..... I took the easy way out and appliqued the cross onto the square.   Too much of a coward to tackle piecing such tiny triangles.

Never mind.... that's 4 done and umpteen to go!

Speaking of going.... I'd better get going.   I've got things to do and they ain't gonna get crossed off my 'to do' list if I sit here chatting all afternoon.... much as I'd like to.

So.....  have a wonderful day and be sure to enjoy yourself and have some fun.
See ya soon
Hugs
Josie
