Grow Your Blog Party Giveaway Winner

Well, the party is over, and what a party it was!  600 bloggers enrolled for the GYB Party hop.

Blog Party

I’m sorry to say that I didn’t get to visit anywhere near the 600 blogs.  I started with those with the least followers, and then my life was interrupted by something much more important.  What could be more important than visiting blogs – well, our DD is expecting, due late May, but was put on bedrest for the duration starting about 3 weeks ago.  So her MIL and I both thought it best if we could somehow spend as much time here as possible so she could well and truly relax and so could her hubby.  So that’s where I am, not at home, not quilting, not being lazy, but here in Alberta with the kids!

Anyway, the party of course didn’t stop because I wasn’t there and many wonderful people visited this blog as a result.  Thank heaven for WiFi and I could keep up with the comments.  A big thank-you and welcome to all who visited, your kind words and enthusiasm were so very appreciated. 

I drew for the winner of my give-away using a random number generator (and you’ll have to take my word for it, because I can’t seem to copy the element into here) and up popped #27 who is:

Dawn Castrova of Overboard Creations.  Here’s what Dawn said:

Wow I love my visit. Didn't realize that there is so much going on in cyber world. Forgive me for coming to the party at the last minute, But 600 blog reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio. Your my 552 blog and 24 hours left to go. If you like come visit My site contact info is I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
Oh thanks for letting me enter your give away.

Dawn has a wonderful blog, full of creativity and enthusiasm.  I hope some of you will be able to make it over to her blog for a visit.

I had promised this pincushion and mug rug:110111

(had some difficulty with the satin stitch on the mug rug, using an old sewing machine at my daughter’s – apologies to Dawn, but with a mug on top, the problems won’t be seen)

Dawn doesn’t say that she’s a reader, but I added this little bookmark – she may be able to use it to mark her pages in crafting books and magazines:


Congratulations, Dawn – I’ll be sending you an email message to get your mailing address.

Again thank you to all who visited from the GYB party, and hope that all who participated had a good time!

Blessings, Peg
