And The Winner Is.....


Wow! What a turn out I had for the Sew Mam Sew Giveaway - thank you one and all for taking the time to not only enter, but to sign up to follow along with me on my quilting journeys. I love hear from you all.

I received so many interesting answers to the question, "Do you spend more time quilting in the summer or winter?"  Quilters from Australia, South Africa and even San Diego said they pretty much don't have a winter, so it's all the same to them.  Many said they sew more in the winter when kids are in school, and many said that summer was the best time to sew in order to escape the heat.

I found all the answers interesting, so I tabulated the results. In another lifetime, I used to be a newspaper reporter, and so facts and figures always pop out at me. I tallied the answers, and here's what it revealed:

Winter:  52% 
Summer: 31%
Equally Through the Year: 14%
Don't Know:  3%

So there you have it - winter brings out more sewing machines than summer.  I know I sew more in the winter, but then August rolls around and it's too hot to do much outside, so I retreat to my sewing room and stitch away. 

I received 393 entries - just overwhelming!  That's what made it so difficult to pick only one winner, and so I did using the scientific method of Asking My Husband To Pick A Number From 1 to 393.

So I'm glad to announce that Kluckingbear is my winner!  Thanks again for everyone's enthusiasm.
