It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

There have been some Christmassy things happening around here lately:

Tea towels made as gifts for my colleagues.

Sugar cookies made (but not iced - I ran out of time).

Some more Christmas decorating.

And present-wrapping.

But you're really here to find out who won the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway, aren't you? 

Now, I know some giveaways got thousands of comments, but I'm happy that there were 160 comments. That's waaayyy more than I've ever received on a post before, and some of these nice people even decided to follow my blog! Thanks!

I loved reading about your Christmas wishes. There were lots of people hoping for fabric, sewing machines and quilting supplies. Some wishing for family members to recover from illness or come home for the holidays. A few who asked for peace and quiet. There were also some responses that had me chuckling. The vast majority, though, wanted nothing more than to spend Christmas with their families and other loved ones. And isn't that what it's really about!

I knew it would be hard to choose a winner based on the comment, so I used the Random Number Generator:

The Random Number Generator says #9 won!

That is Jen, who wrote:

oh! I didn't know you were participating. Cool!
All I want for christmas is good weather so that I can go visiting to my extended family and EAT really good food! :)

Congratulations, Jen! I hope you will enjoy your little prize!

Thanks again to everyone who dropped by and played along. I do hope you'll return some day.

And, on another note:

WOOOOHOOOOO! Today was the last day of school! We are officially on VACATION!
