A Hat a Day Giveaway, Winners

The new year is not even that old and I’m already falling behind. You may have noticed that I’ve been unusually quite (for me) and it’s not because I’ve run out of things to say. Or sew. I have been fighting the mother of all throat infections for more than a week, spending two of the precious 4 days New Year’s celebration visit from my parents on the couch trying not to swallow. Or breathe through my mouth. I finally understood that the bug would not give up that easily and went to see a doctor. Now I’ve got kick ass antibiotics to keep me company, and while I’m waiting for the bugs to leave me alone, I have (as you have seen) been knitting hats. And more hats. And not much else.

Tonight is the drawing of the winners of my A Hat a Day Giveaway, and with a little help from I am happy to announce two winners. They both get up to 3 hats of their own choice from
the 8 hats from this post
and the off white, yellow, pink, and off white/yellow hats from this post.

The winners are
Gill from Great Britain
and my wonderful friend Corrinne of Dosfishes.
I’ll be sending you an email asking for your favourite hats.

Congratulations to both of you and to the rest of you thank you for playing along!

I hope to be back to my regular quilting self next week; this weekend is grandmatime at my house so I’ll have some creative playtime even though it is without fabric and sewing machine.

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I can't believe it - wool hats from you, oh my gosh. You know my colors so anything you choose will be welcome. Thanks so much.
    I hope you are well and seriously on the mend with your throat thing. Nothing worse than a sore throat that just won't leave, I can so sympathize with that. Take good care stay warm and toastie. Lots of hot tea(maybe some shots of whiskey will do the trick!) xox Corrine

  2. Hi Nina, Love the hats! I have some boobs to show you over on my blog. I've modeled them like I'm a Mother Goddess. You gotta see this.

  3. Lucky winners! If neither of you have 3 heads, you could send a hat my way. hehe.
    NL I hope that your throat is better soon - that sounds incredibly painful. I swallowed about a gallon of honey over the holidays trying to soothe my bronchitis, but it didn't hurt that much. Be well!

  4. Good morning Nina!
    I arrived here through Beth's blog (Love laugh and quilt). I love your blog, very inspiring. I like how you use color.

  5. Thank you Nina!
    I hope you're feeling better soon - so many people seem to have been ill over Christmas and New Year
    Take care

  6. Take good care of yourself and get all better soon!

  7. Congrats to the winners of the great hats.

    Oh my...I also have had an awful terrible cold. Took about two weeks to feel better and now have to take it easy and pace myself.

    Have a nice evening...
