Well, that was fun! The May Day Giveaway sponsored by Sew, Mama, Sew! is over, and the winners here are Elizabeth Kay (baby dress) and Sandra from Thistle Cove Farm (buttons). The thought of putting all those names in a hat was a bit overwhelming; I was so glad to see a mention of random.org on another blog -- a much easier way to choose a winner.
And in comments this morning, I had a note that I had won a giveaway, as well -- a beautiful patriotic bunting from girlville!
I know I didn't get through half the giveaway blogs, but I saw some wonderful things and got some great ideas. And I'm trying to visit the blogs of those who commented here -- it's just that I start reading blogs and get wrapped up in the crafts, patterns, pictures, stories -- there is so much great stuff out there in blogland.
Now that school is over, I'm turning my summertime thoughts to home improvements (although I should first catch up on laundry!) This week, I'm also working on Paul's baptism outfit, a speech for convention and family reunion plans. Home improvements may take a back seat.
