Thanks, Y'all!

A big thank you to all who entered The Great Migration Giveaway!
Goodman drew the names out of my Great Expedition hat (lol, I used it for beekeeping several years ago) in the same order that I listed the prizes in the giveaway post's now time to reveal the winners of the prizes.

First Place winner of the Paper Bag Tote is Trish. Her blog is Thistle & Briar. (My camera was acting up because the batteries needed charging, so I didn't get pictures of the second & third place winners' draw.) Anyways....Second place winner of the dpn/circular needle case is LeAnn. Her blog is Knitting In Kingston Springs.
Third place winner of Gift Wrap, the six-pocket needle case is Laurie. Her blog is Knit2Purl.

Now, I didn't mention this in the giveaway post, but I've been blogging for a little over 18 months & have enjoyed it immensely along with reading every comment you've all left for me. All of your comments have been supportive & encouraging of my knitting, sewing, cooking, trips..whatever, & I appreciate that more than I know how to explain, really. One person in particular, though, has left more comments than anyone else & I have a tote bag left (one of the red city-chicks) that I would like to send that person as my way of saying thank you for being the top commenter on this blog. Without question Hakucho has been visiting here the longest(of those who still visit & comment, she only missed 2 or 3 posts) & faithfully commented on nearly all of my projects..obviously a longsuffering blogger. :)
Again, to all thanks for being here, Y'all.)


  1. Wow! I can't believe I won something. I really need to update my blog with my current knitting projects. . .

    Thank you for doing this!


  2. Woo Hoo!! Congrats to all the winners! I'm sooooo jealous!
    Enjoy your goodies.
    I snagged a piece of fabric at a thrift store that so reminded me of you. It was a country fabric with seed it.

  3. What a great idea to give something to a faithful commenter - and she is very faithful!

    Go Cotton Queens!!

    Talk about faithful certainly fit that bill :)
    Thanks again so much :)

  5. Congrats to all the winners!! Wow, how fun!! Thanks Tea for a great giveaway!

  6. Oh Tea! Thank you so much! I am just so honored to have "met" you! I truly wish I could just walk through the back gate about mid-morning and visit with you over some yummy snack and a tall glass of iced tea.

    I think it's my turn to give out a surprise now!

  7. You know Deb aka Hakucho was the first blog I ever read, and because of hers I decided I HAD to become a blogger too.

    Congrats to all the winners.
