Yup, that's how many times I had to try my little giveaway winner choosing scheme before I got an actual winner. I wasn't anticipating quite so much work...
A couple of observations:
1. There seem to be a lot of Jessicas who read my blog. I know there are a ton of us out there, but at least 3 times a Jessica was chosen but they hadn't entered the giveaway. I had to double check all the Jessicas who DID enter the giveaway to make sure they weren't the same person.
2. I think I scared a lot of would-be enterers away with my fancy scheme. More people de-lurked and said hello in post #103 than entered the giveaway. And several times a name came up of a regular commenter that I recognized, but they hadn't entered. :( I won't mention who it was so you don't feel bad. And next time, I guess I'll do the giveaway the regular way....
OK so without any further ado...dum dah dah dum....
The grand prize winner is Doris at Threads of Conversation. Doris has be a loyal reader and commenter for quite some time, so while I wish I could send a quilt to all you nice people, at least I know this one will have a good home. Doris said: " love it...esp. with the frayed edges! I would have liked to see you buying the extra big jeans...it paints a great picture!"
The two runners up are:
Tiffany from the giveaway post #107. Tiffany said: " Great idea for a quilt - I'm gonna look at my goodwill for huge jeans too! They already think I'm crazy so I'll just add to the mystery :) How fun!"
Karen from the gearing up for giveaway post #103. Karen said: " found your blog last December when looking for a pattern for felt crowns and found your tutorial. I made a whole 5th birthday party full of them--8 in all. I have enjoyed reading your posts ever since!
So congrats to you three winners. I'll be emailing you for your snail mail addresses.
Sorry for the picture-less post. I didn't want to wait to post this and I need to get my act together with more pictures I haven't processed yet.
