What these have to do with pattern winners? Absolutely nothing.
However, they have everything to do with being an ex-chocoholic, diabetic, blogging quilter and meeting the nicest new friends in blogland.
I was talking to my friend Krista from Poppyprint about chocolate, and she tells me they have an amazing chocolatier who makes incredible things that are "no sugar added" in her town, and would I like some? Sure!! They arrived in my mailbox on Friday all the way from Canada, and knowing there was chocolate inside, I waited to open it until grandson was put to bed. As good as I am at sharing, this treat I will keep for myself! As you can see I took a bite before I got around to taking pictures. Yum-my!
She also sent me this adorable needle case as though she knew that I needed something pretty to keep my needles in, and Olympic stamps from Vancouver. Added: You'll find her tutorial here.
Thank you so much, Krista, this is the sweetest gift I have received (still no pun intended).
And now to the topic in the header - Random.org has done its magic and
Barbara is the winner of the English pattern and
Jette is the winner of the Norwegian pattern.
Congratulations to you both; and to the rest of you – thanks for playing along!
